After a drive through the north German countryside, which is interspersed with heaths and moors, you will arrive at Berlin's Jewish Museum.

Following free time for lunch at the museum's in-house café, you will see many of Berlin's other most poignant sites. They include the historical city centre around the fashionable avenue Unter den Linden, the restored Brandenburg Gate, and the Reichstag, Germany's parliament house. Finally, visit the haunting Topography of Terror, an open-air photography exhibition located on the former site of Nazi Germany's Gestapo and SS headquarters.
