What To Expect

Gain insight into the rise and fall of the Nazi Party during this private shore excursion including a Berlin sightseeing trip and visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp.

Depart in the morning from Warnemünde port via a private, air-conditioned minibus, traveling south for approximately two hours to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Site, where you’ll meet your guide. As one of the first concentration camps opened by the Nazis, the center played an important role in the design and execution of the Hitler’s gruesome plans. Learn about the facility’s design, construction and opening in 1936, along with its evolving role as a hosting ground for “antisocial” prisoners and later as Special Camp No. 1/7 during the era of Soviet occupation up until 1950.

Continue by minibus towards Berlin, conversing with your guide during the drive about World War II history and what sights you’d like to visit during your stop in the German capital. On arrival, you’ll get an overview of the Third Reich and an introduction to the history behind the rise of Hitler and the Nazis.

Stop by Berlin attractions like the one-time site of Hitler’s bunker and pay your respects at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Proceed next to Checkpoint Charlie, once a crucial nexus of transit between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. Continue your day by visiting one of the last remaining sections of the famous Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery and admire the Reichstag, the modern home of the German parliament that sits inside the shell of its 19th-century predecessor.

During your exploration you’ll also have included time to stop for a lunch break (own expense), with suggestions like an authentic German beer hall provided by your guide. Your tour concludes back at Warnemünde port, roughly 2.5 hours fro Berlin, where you’ll reconnect with your ship in the evening.

This tour provided us with a great tour of Berlin and Sachsenhausen memorial. Your Guide Arial was great and saw to your every need. My husband uses a wheelchair and this tour was the best way for us to see all the important sites. I would highly recommend this tour and your guide.

Amazing Tour of Berlin

We were on a cruise and wanted to see Berlin. This tour looked great, but we were weary of the 3 hour drive each way. The van was so nice that we actually enjoyed the drive as a comfortable rest before the packed tour. Our guide was excellent, and we loved every minute of this tour. We highly recommend this tour on its own or as a cruise excursion.

John (JJ) was so knowledgeable and accommodating he gave us one of the best private tours we've ever had! We were picked up right on time in a comfortable Mercedes-Benz passenger van for our two-and-a half hour ride to Berlin. We were two couples traveling on the Crystal Symphony who wanted to see the highlights of Berlin as well as the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. John literally made the Concentration Camp come alive with his knowledge of the history and details of the camp. From our tour of the camp in the morning we went into Berlin and had lunch at a great restaurant with him. Then on to the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Brandenburg Gate, and other historic sites. John's passion of history and the many human aspects that are often overlooked or forgotten made this tour one of the best we've ever had.
