We start at the Brandenburg Gate - Berlin's landmark for separation and reunification. We will take you along the Boulevard "Unter den Linden", passing by the British and Russian embassies. Our chauffeur will head towards the Checkpoint Charlie, the true focal point of the cold war. If desired, some pictures will be taken together with soldiers of the allied forces there.

 From here we take to the political Berlin of these days, back along Unter den Linden. The Reichstag, Germany's parliament, the Chancellor's Office, Russian tanks in front of sandstone and marble monoliths at the Russian War Memorial. The "Street of the 17th of June" is reminiscent of the overwhelming power of the freedom. Berlin was finally liberated, and the separation of former times turned into cathedrals of modernity -  Potsdamer Platz with its high-rising towers being its true testimony. Along the way, at your right hand side you catch a glimps of Tiergarten Park, the green heart of the capital.

On to Leipziger Platz, whose busy traffic reminds us of the epitome of Berlin's Roaring Thirties. From there we will bring you back via Gropius Building and "Topography of Terror" to Brandenburg Gate, on roads all lined with architectural monuments from almost four centuries
