Capital of contemporary architecture, media hub, seat of the German government, and home to three operas, two symphonies, and over 50 theaters, if it’s happening, it must be Berlin. For all the contemporary development, the city also displays a rich, sometimes troubled history. We’ll work through layers of past and present at Checkpoint Charlie, in the excellent Neue Nationalgalerie, and at the sobering Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Visits to the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and the Television Tower will show us where Berlin has been, and where she’s headed at autobahn speed.
etr has been bridging east and west in Berlin since 1992 and we’d be pleased to show you what we have found. Most of our Berlin programmes are three, four or five days and often time in combination with a three day exploration of Prague. Come along.
