Planning Your Visit

  • When is the best time to take a walking tour in Berlin?

    Berlin is jam-packed with tourists in the summer, and for good reason. The temperatures are pleasant, the days of sunshine are long, and the city is alive with color. We recommend you take one of the many walking tours in the April through November time frame. June through August are the warmest, but you'll still find it enjoyable to walk around Berlin in spring or fall.

I would like to thank the tour guide Ronan once again for the excellent and thought-provoking tour. Ronan is indispensable because of his vast knowledge of history. The tour was important, remarkable, and interesting. I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone visiting Berlin.

Our guide, Ronan, is knowledgeable about the topic--just an excetionally well-read man and an excellent communicator. He made me feel comfortable immediately and kept the tour lively and interesting. I highly recommend him.
