Tour description

The political heart beats in Berlin’s government district, where our city tour begins. Media companies, ministries and lobbying associations have settled down around the German parliament and the Chancellery. On the tour you will get fascinating insights into the political life. An international flair exudes the Pariser Platz at the Brandenburg Gate with its many embassies: the US, France, Great Britain, Russia, Hungary and the European Union have their diplomatic missions in the neighborhood of the government district. And state guests stay in the legendary Hotel Adlon – the most exclusive hotel in town. Until the war, the government district of the Third Reich was close by in the street Wilhelmstrasse which we will also visit. Today, ministries have moved into some of the old palaces. The city tour ends in the lively Leipziger Strasse in front of the magnificent former Prussian mansion, which today is the seat of the Federal Council.
