It is one with a long history, from its origins in the 18th century built by Prussian king Frederick William II, it was the entry to Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees, which led directly to the royal palace.
And the tour continues to take in the pivotal locations in Berlin's storied history, such as Checkpoint Charlie, (the best known crossing point between East and West Berlin and symbol of the Cold War) The Berlin Wall itself, the Führerbunker, the Luftwaffe HQ (the German airforce headquarters) and the book burning memorial. This tour will illuminate how Berlin shaped the world in the 20th century, and turned from a symbol of division into a symbol of unification and hope.
