We have been on Context walks in Rome and a customised tour in rural Italy. We've really enjoyed these experiences, so when we went to Berlin we decided to use Context Travel again. We went on the 'Introduction to Berlin' walk around central Berlin with Julian. The emphasis of the walk was on how Berlin has decided to remember its past. Julian showed us a number of sites from various stages in Berlin's history. It was fascinating. I was particurlarly taken by the memorial at the Bundestag to the men who had tried to stop Hitler passing the Enabling Act in 1933, the site of the Fuhrer's bunker and the memorial to the book burning in 1933 when 20,000 books were burnt. Julian was knowlegeable, stimulating and charming. The walk really helped me to comprehend present day Berlin much more than from guide books and web sites I had read beforehand. I feel it has contributed positively to my remaining time in Berlin and I would highly recommend it. I wish I had more time to do more of the Context Travel walks in Berlin.
