Drinking in Berlin Walking Tour Details

  • Tickets must be purchased in advance
  • Maximum 20 people per walk
  • This walk begins at THEMUSEUM on King Street West. It ends a short distance west in front of Bobby O’Brien’s.
  • We walk rain or shine or snow so dress for the weather! If it looks like rain, bring an umbrella. If it’s cold, wear a few extra layers.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes (i.e. no flip flops!)
  • Arrive 5-10 minutes in advance to check in. If you arrive exactly when the walk starts, you’re already late!
  • Our walking tours are face mask friendly – even though our walking tours are entirely outdoors, some guests may feel most comfortable wearing a mask – and we respect that!
    A wonderful experience. A great way to connect with friends while learning fascinating history. Just the right amount of walking. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and very open to conversation/digression, but still kept on track. We would definitely do this again.
