Bus Tours

For less active travellers or those who really do only have a few hours in Berlin, there are plenty of bus tour operators, most of them leaving from the Kudamm area and lots of them offering English language commentary. Below is a selected listing. Departure times and prices are subject to change, so to be safe grab a brochure from the tourist office or call in advance.

Bus 100

The 100 bus is a regular BVG public transport bus which runs from from West (Zoologischer Garten) to East (Prenzlauer Berg /Michelangelostrasse) and back, passing many landmarks such as the Europa Center, The Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, the TV Tower and other sights along the way. If you're lucky, a friendly bus driver will point out the sights to travellers. The bus ride costs DM3.90, the amount of a regular public transport ticket and runs every five to ten minutes. Seats at the front of the upper level of Berlin´s double-decker busses are the best for sightseeing.

This company has been around for a while and they offer a range of tours in and around Berlin. Hop in a bus with wrap-around glass windows, pop on your earphones, pick a language, and off you go - hopefully everything will be in sync and your tape won't be expounding on the Neo-Baroque beauty of the Berlin Cathedral at the Television Tower. These are "hop on hop off tours", meaning the busses depart every half hour during the day. Tourists can get off and on at any or all of 12 stops, take their snaps, visit sights at their own pace and get back on a bus later in the day. Check out the Berolina´s websight for more details of the tours on offer.
