Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.

Dynamic, cosmopolitan, and just a little bit decadent, Berlin is one of the fastest-changing cities in Europe. We'll talk you through its remarkable and often troubled history and show you the vibrant, creative Berlin of today. We start at the magnificent Reichstag and talk about its war-torn history - and its exciting modern incarnation.

We then direct you round to the Brandenburg Gate, where we explain not only what you're looking at but we also put this historic symbol of Germany into context.

Afterwards, we pay a visit to the new Holocaust Memorial, explain the thinking behind it - and reveal why it's proved to be so controversial. We then wander down Unter den Linden, hear about what the name means, and take a short detour over to Checkpoint Charlie.

Then we take in the impressive architecture of Bebelplatz but also talk about the most shameful episode in the square's history - and point out the simple but moving memorial to that awful event that so many visitors miss.

After the glorious Berlin cathedral, we finally we arrive at the TV Tower, and we'll tell you why it was such an embarrassment to the Communist regime that built it.

We'll also tell you about the coolest bars, restaurants and shops, and show how the past, present, and future converge and sometimes clash in the Berlin of the 21st century. Download and start listening now!
