How to Spend 1 Day in Berlin

How to Spend 1 Day in Berlin

A day in Berlin could easily be spent in one of the city’s wonderful museums. But if you’re looking to maximize time in the German capital, it’s possible to pack loads of history, food, and sightseeing into a single day. Here’s what you need to know about biking, strolling, and eating your way through Berlin in 24 hours.

Morning: Urban Orientation

Begin a day in Berlin with a tour to orient yourself in the city. Follow a guide to explore on two wheels with a Berlin Bike Tour, or save your energy and cover ground more quickly with a Segway tour. Maximize time in the city and explore at your own pace with a ticket for the hop-on hop-off bus that includes top sights such as Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Charlottenburg Palace, Potsdamer Platz, and more. Consider a hop-on hop-off tour ticket that includes extras, from a cruise on the River Spree to skip-the-line entry at the TV Tower.

Afternoon: History and Grub

Learn about Berlin’s complicated history during one of several history-themed guided tours, including a Third Reich Sites walking tour or an intimate private walking tour focused on World War II and Cold War sites. Hear stories about different eras of Berlin’s history during the Discover Berlin Half-Day walking tour, including major landmarks such as the Reichstag, the Holocaust Memorial, and the Berlin Wall. If you would rather go off the beaten path, you can explore the hip neighborhood of Kreuzberg with a food, culture, and street art tour complete with street food snacks.

Night: Neighborhoods and Night Views

Berlin is known for its electric after-dark atmosphere. Experience the vibrant neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg with a local leading the way during an evening Berlin food tour by bike. This tour visits three restaurants representing different sides of Berlin’s culinary scene, including Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisines. Berlin’s landmarks take on a different feel after dark. Catch a glimpse of nighttime views over the city’s rooftops with skip-the-line tickets for the TV Tower.
