Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Berlin, Germany

Welcome to Germany's capital, Berlin – the place of division and reunification, forever revealing itself in multi-faceted layers. If you are visiting for the first time, our Introduction Walk will take you to some of the most essential sights. Make sure not to miss the walking tour of Museum Island, one of the most important groupings of cultural attractions in Germany, inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage. The city's central Alexanderplatz (referred to simply as “Alex”) is also very popular among tourists, due to its proximity to many iconic sites. You can also follow the Third Reich Walking Tour for an informative journey through the darkest chapter of the Berlin's story, etched into the cityscape.

In all, we have prepared 11 self-guided walks for you to explore Berlin, which cover everything from the most iconic landmarks to the best food, nightlife venues and shopping areas. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next.
