Europaplatz 1, Berlin, Germany

The Basics

Spend any time at all in Berlin, and chances are you’ll find yourself at the travel hub of Berlin Hauptbahnhof. Due to the history of the old station, it features on many Cold War–themed city tours, and it’s a stop on nearly every Berlin hop-on hop-off tour, most of which also cruise by the Berlin Wall and Tränenpalast. You can also admire the architecture from the outside on a Berlin Segway tour along the riverfront or on a guided sightseeing cruise.

This was an excellent choice. Tour guide (Paul) was very knowledgeable and also accommodating when our flight was delayed with tour time changes. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and Paul even gave us pointers on sights to see while we were in Berlin.

The tour itself was very nice and interesting. It's a little bit confusing that there several companies using the term hop on hop off. At first we had som difficulties in finding the right one.

Berlin City Hop-on Hop-off Tour with Optional Cruise
This tour was great except the audio portion barely acknowledged the sites that memoralized the atrocities of World War II. No mention of The Memorial of Murdered Jews even though we drove past it. Only slight mention of The Topography of Terror.

Berlin City Hop-on Hop-off Tour with Optional Cruise
An easier way of getting to all the sights around Berlin you will not find. The buses were clean and arrived at regular intervals. As with most things German they can get a little anal about the little things so make sure you are waiting at the approved bus stops only with your ticket ready. As long as you follow the rules it is easy.

2.5-Hour Berlin Center Boat Cruise on the River Spree
It was a very hot day and no shade if you sat on the top deck so a hat is absolutely necessary. The information given during the cruise was very good. Snacks and drinks were also available.

Berlin Highlights Small-Group Segway Tour
Patrick was very knowledgeable about the area and local history. During our tour there was a large protest for climate change was going on in Berlin with over 250 thousand protestors on the streets. But Patrick was able to work around the crowds and show us most of the regular planned tour.

City Sightseeing Berlin Hop-On Hop-Off Bus
It was an excellent choice especially given poor weather to use the Hop on Hop off bus where you get a great appreciation via the view from the top deck and the narrated tour of the city which if time is limited, allows you to pick and choose locations for further exploration.
