Your tour commences with a three hour scenic coach ride to Berlin. Upon arrival in the city, your first stop will be at Bebelplatz where, below ground level, lies the Empty Library-the city's most original memorial to honor ostracized authors whose books were burned on this site by students and Nazis in 1933.
Some of the other famous highlights that you will see during your tour include remnants of the Berlin Wall and the Brandenburg Gate, which more than any other monument symbolizes the German and European unification and will always be known as the border between East and West Germany. Nearby is the Reichstag parliament building. Later, take advantage of a brief photo stop at the site of the former Checkpoint Charlie-the legendary border crossing where spies were exchanged between the American and Soviet sectors during the Cold War.
Continuing on,you'll visit the Berlin Cathedral with its neo-Baroque interior and massive dome. This enormous cathedral, built between 1894 and 1905, is a stunning example of the neo-Renaissance style of Berlin. During the Second World War, the building was hit by a firebomb which severely damaged most of the building, but it has now been restored in a simplified form, including the dismantling of the Hohenzollern mausoleum. From here, you'll drive along the Kurfürstendamm - Berlin's version of the Champs Elysées and pass the impressive Charlottenburg Castle built in 1695. You will also view the Gendarmenmarkt - the quaintest square in Berlin which boasts an architectural ensemble comprised of the theater, the German Cathedral and the French Cathedral.
Lastly, before returning to Warnemunde, you visit the Pergamon Museum which magnificently showcases a must-see collection of antiquities. The Pergamon Museum is one of the world's major archeological museums and you'll have plenty of time for a memorable inside visit.
