Join us on this comprehensive walk through Berlin's main sights as we detail the story of Berlin's chequered rise to European capital city. A perfect companion for German history studies.
The Story of Berlin
DescriptionBerlin was the capital of the 20th Century. Nowhere shows the forces that formed our modern world better than this fascinating city.
On this tour, we explain the biography of Berlin, from the rise of Prussia and the birth of Germany, adding context to the origins and the horrors of two World Wars and the frightening global standoff that followed during the years of the Berlin Wall. Finally, we examine the events of the 1989 revolution that created today's new modern Berlin and Europe.
This online tour will give you a real flavour of Berlin's main sights, including stops at the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the site of Hitler's Bunker, the Nazi Air Ministry and Checkpoint Charlie.

This virtual tour makes Berlin ‘come alive’ for pupils and would make a fantastic addition to the GCSE course. Pupils will enjoy experiencing the history they are studying first-hand and it should boost their understanding. I intend to use it with my classes.
