Tours in Germany

This tour will help you gain a better understanding of Berlin's complicated and tragic history. Visit Fasanenstrasse, the seat of the Jewish community in Berlin. The synagogue was destroyed on November 9th 1938; only the portal has survived to this day. The tour includes the following sites:

Kufuerstendamm, the main shopping boulevard once berated by East German propaganda as a "symbol of Western opulence The Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church, whose ruins serve as a reminder of World War II  The Jewish Museum Complex -- housing, exhibitions on the history of Jewish culture in Germany Lindenstrasse, the address of another former synagogue Checkpoint Charlie, the former East-West crossing point managed by U.S. troops -- the Checkpoint Charlie museum nearby is dedicated to various successful, unsuccessful and ingenious attempts to get from East to West Remains of the Cold War and the Wall that divided Berlin for nearly 30 years Potsdamer Platz -- a symbol of Berlin's renewal, it was The Centre of Berlin until it was consumed by the Wall, and has since been transformed from a strangely barren field into a showcase of 21st Century  architecture.



The site of Hitler's former bunker The site of the soon-to-be constructed Holocaust memorial The Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag (German Parliament) Berlin's Old Jewish Quarter and place of deportation to the concentration camps The New Synagogue and Jewish Cemetery, The Nikolai Quarter, the oldest part of Berlin The Gendarmenmarket, often complimented as the most interesting square in Berlin Unter den Linden boulevard Charlottenburg palace and the site of the 1936 Olympic games.
Though we will drive between sites, there will be plenty of walking so be sure to wear your walking shoes!

Just 2 hours from Berlin and 2 1/2 hours from Prague, a stop in Dresden is a pleasant way to break up the ride; Dresden also makes for a nice day-trip from either city. Besides having a charming downtown, a visit to Dresden is essential for understanding WWII history in Central Europe. The rococo Palace Zwinger houses a major collection of Renaissance art; the Gruenes Gewoelbe houses the richest treasury in Europe. See the town that after half a century is still recovering from WWII destruction. Only 30 miles (50 km) from Dresden you can visit Meissen, home of perhaps the world's best porcelain. If desired, you may visit the factory to see production first-hand ... and perhaps find a bargain in the factory store.
Berlin & Munich Tour. As both cities are major airline destinations, either city may serve as the starting point of your tour.

as the capital of Germany, always offers a rich selection of cultural events -- concerts, operas, and exhibitions. The city's art collections, such as the Pergamon Museum, famous for its ancient Babylonian gateway, are known world-wide. Visit the places famous and infamous in our modern history (the reconstructed Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie, remainders of the Berlin Wall).

is about a 6-hour drive from Prague and less than 2 hours from Salzburg. In addition to the city's many museums, visitors enjoy Munich's typically Bavarian atmosphere. The Jewish Museum in Munich displays the complicated history of the German Jews from its early beginnings, through the Crusades and right up until the Holocaust period. Within a year of coming to power, the Nazis established one of its first concentration camps on the outskirts of Munich. Till today this camp, Dachau, is an important reminder of Nazi brutality.

Driving south from Prague, you'll see the lovely contrast between the mild countryside and the Šumava mountains. Passau, just 1 hour from the Czech border, was established on a peninsula on the confluence of three rivers -- the Danube, the Inn and the Ilz. The former Bishop's Castle offers a striking view of the historical town. In addition to its many monuments, Passau is famous for its rich collection of Bohemian glass -- at 30,000 artefacts, the oldest of which dates from 1780, the collection is in fact the largest in the world.

This one-day trip offers a nice opportunity to view the similarities and differences between Bohemia and Bavaria. Regensburg, a small city on the Danube untouched during WWII, offers a typical mediaeval setting -- marketplaces mingled with curved streets and tiny passages, with remnants from the Roman period waiting to be discovered. Recent archaeological research has discovered an old Jewish Ghetto and Synagogue, destroyed during a riot in 1519. It was from Regensburg that the first Jewish scholars came to Prague and founded the first Yeshiva.
