Mysteries and Legends Free Tour

A deathly complexion as white as snow; tired eyelids; a fateful expression… the White Lady of Berlin instilled terror, especially to the monarchy. You’ll discover if this is true or not as you admire the Brandenburg Gate, which is where we’ll meet ready to start this interesting, different, free tour of the mysteries and legends of Berlin.

The first stop will be at the Lustgarten park, on Museum Island. It is precisely here where various people claim to have seen the White Lady. We'll then continue past the St. Nicholas Church, also known as the Nikolaikirche, which hides even more mysteries and secrets.

You’re also sure to be shocked by what you discover outside the Reichstag. Jan Eric Hanussen predicted the fire that would happen here which led to Adolf Hitler seizing absolute power. This was a time of espionage and spying, German secret agents used to frequent various places in the capital of the Third Reich, including the Potsdamer Platz and the Anhalter Bunker, which will be the next stops on this free tour.

The icing on the cake of what has already been an incredibly interesting tour will come when we return to the Nicholas Quarter to find out more about the history of the German capital. After two and a half hours, this free tour of the mysteries and legends of Berlin will come to an end in this area From here, you’ll be able to take the metro and make your own way back to the centre of Berlin, unless you want to spend the night in this spooky area, of course!
