Titan HiTours, the escorted tours specialist, has just launched a brand new Berlin Wall itinerary to mark the 20th anniversary of the city’s reunification. On 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall came down, uniting East and West. To mark this momentous occasion, Titan Hitours has put together a fascinating tour, which retraces the country’s history.
The seven-day trip begins with a visit to the former East German city of Dresden, followed by the old trading town of Leipzig. The tour then returns to Berlin for a guided city tour, which follows the theme of the Berlin Wall including famous sights such as the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and the Reichstag building. Also included in the itinerary is a visit to the ‘Story of Berlin’ exhibition, with a tour of a radiation-proof bunker from the Cold War, located underneath the Kurfurstendamn and a short day trip to Potsdam, famous for its baroque palaces and gardens.
The six-night Berlin Wall tour costs from £1,145 per person, departing on 18 and 25 November and includes Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service which picks customers up from – and returns them to – their own front door, return flights from Heathrow to Berlin, transfers, accommodation, some meals, the services of a Titan Tour Manager throughout and guided city tours of Dresden, Leipzig and Berlin.
