The New Berlin: A City Reunited
May 18th-26th, 2018 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open
Since the wall came down 30 years ago, a whole generation of Berliners has grown up not knowing the great symbolic divide that once separated the city of Berlin. The success of this reunification has allowed it to become a vibrant and economic powerhouse of Europe. Join two of our best tour guides who call this city home- Matthias and Sara Kort, who will bring you a unique perspective on this historic place. With visits to: “Museum Island,” home to the Pergamon and many other famous institutions; Dresden, the “Florence of the Elbe,” with sightseeing including visits to the restored Frauenkirche and the New Green Vault; to the south of Berlin where we will stop at the Allied Museum, and the summer residence built for Frederick the Great, frequently called the “Prussian Versailles.” With plenty of time to explore this fascinating city on your own, we will immerse ourselves in the culture and history of the intersection where the worlds of communism and capitalism once collided.
