Exploring Berlin with the Berlin CityTourCard

The history of Germany's unconventional capital stretches back beyond the Prussian empire. As my friends and I explored, we bumped into fascinating vestiges of its vibrant past at every turn. Marvelling, for instance, at majestic Museum Island, home to an Egyptian queen and Monet's ethereal landscapes. We checked in at Checkpoint Charlie, and stood in the very room where Nazi leaders once planned the Holocaust. Parts of the Berlin Wall are still intact, and gazing up at Berlin's iconic Fernsehturm, I'm transported back to the German Democratic Republic. It couldn't be easier to travel to these sights, and Berlin's plethora of other attractions, with a Berlin CityTourCard. This single ticket lets you use every kind of public transport for the period of time that best suits your itinerary.

Travelling in central Berlin with the Berlin CityTourCard Berlin AB

We visited Berlin's Museum Island and cherry picked from the countless major museums and galleries that are accessible with the Berlin CityTourCard Berlin AB. We decided to delve into the city's Jewish history at the Jewish Museum, a gem designed by celebrated architect Daniel Libeskind. Next, we were drawn to the Berlinische Gallery, which presents contemporary art from 1880 onwards, as well as mercurial contemporary exhibitions. Meanwhile, the gleaming Mies van der Rohe New National Gallery collection traces the development of modern art. You're uplifted by masterpieces by Miro, Magritte and many others. A few minutes later, and you are strolling through the tranquil Tiergarten, past the Reichstag, Holocaust Memorial and Brandenburg Gate. Finally, take a detour to Dorotheenstadt Cemetery, where Goethe, Bertolt Brecht and other greats are buried, to watch a light installation by James Turrell glow at sundown.

Visiting Potsdam with Berlin CityTourCard Berlin ABC

With the Berlin CityTourCard ABC, you can also discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Potsdam. This impressive royal seat is accompanied by a wealth of cultural attractions, parks and entertainments. Nearly a thousand years of history are enthroned at Potsdam's 17 palaces set amid stunning ornamental gardens and parkland. We caught sight of the Marble Palace which is secreted in a leafy enclave of the New Garden. Other architectural wonders in the area are the House of Brandenburg-Prussian History and Villa Schöningen. There's much more to do. You can also feast your eyes on the comprehensive art collection on display at the famous Sanssouci Palace. [instagram:] Or rewind to the opening credits of cinema at the world-class Filmpark Babelsberg theme park and museum. That's just the tip of the Potsdam iceberg. Luckily, the CityTourCard Berlin ABC takes the fuss out of travelling here. It gives you ten different tickets for all modes of public transport in one.

We also used the Berlin CityTourCard to get savings of up to 30% with discount partners. Hopping on a flexible Berlin Bus Tour, we were ferried between the top sights in the city. As expert guides clued us up on the city's culture and history, we snapped away with our cameras and enjoyed the views. Hopping off at the Berlin Dungeon, where we got a discount on entry, we were simultaneously chilled and entertained by this attraction's cast of professional actors who share a dark sense of humour. [instagram:] Nearby, you can head to AquaDom & SEA Life where you dive beneath the surface of the world's oceans and marvel at more than 5000 marine animals. 17 different themes, a deep sea tunnel and live shark feedings all come at a reduced price with the Berlin CityTourCard.
