Bebelplatz is a public square in the central ‘Mitte’ district of Germany’s capital city, Berlin. Today it is best known for being the site where some 20,000 newly banned books were burned by bonfire in 1933 on order of Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, because they conflicted with Nazi ideology. The square is surrounded by notable historical buildings, including the German State Opera (Staatsoper); St. Hedwig’s Cathedral (built in 1747 and modeled after Rome’s Pantheon, it was the first Catholic church built in Germany after the Protestant Reformation); and the former Royal Prussian Library (Alte Bibliothek) which is now part of Humboldt University.

All of the buildings on Bebelplatz were destroyed in World War II and reconstructed afterward. An easily overlooked monument in the center of the square simply contains a pane of glass, which the visitor can look through to see many rows of empty bookshelves underground. A nearby plaque quotes the 19th-century German poet Heinrich Heine with, ‘Where they burn books, at the end they also burn people.’

In contrast to bus trips, with an individual sightseeing taxi tour you have the opportunity to stop almost everywhere - be it for a photo shoot, be it for a snack or break, be it for a coffee. Or for a longer tour to take a closer look at an object or to have it explained to you (Berlin Cathedral, Hackesche Höfe, Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, KaDeWe are recommended, for example). Depending on your interests and preferences! And in contrast to a tour, you don't just see a tiny section of our city, City East, the former center and City West, the former West Berlin! So combine the best of walking and bus tours in an Auto City Tour, just like I always do privately with friends and family. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury taxi SUV!

What is special is that you are driven around in your own comfort SUV by a local guide who has lived in Berlin for over 20 years. The personal touch, lots of information and anecdotes are guaranteed! You can also determine what interests you more, where you also want to get off or what you simply want to leave out! That is the big difference to the bus tour; quite apart from the fact that it cannot stop everywhere and each stop takes a lot of time. You also have the opportunity to see the entire City East, and not just a very small section of it, as on tours. Berlin is very extensive, has many other centers in addition to these two, and depending on your interests, we can take a stroll in the Hackesche Höfe or at the Wall Memorial. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn-Ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury taxi SUV!
