Berlin is a must-see city!

We depart the Eifel early Saturday at 1am and travel through the night. Upon arrival, we will have a guided city bus tour. The rest of the day is free for shopping, sightseeing and exploring Germany’s Capital on your own.

Berlin was previously divided by the Berlin Wall until its fall on November 9, 1989. Some parts of the Berlin Wall are still standing and can be visited. You might also want to see historic sites such as the Berlin Cathedral, the Brandenburg Gate, the 1936 Olympic Stadium, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial, the Reichstag (place were the Bundestag, German parliament, meets), the Soviet Memorial, Koenigsplatz with its Goddess of Victory, and Checkpoint Charlie.

After breakfast, on Sunday morning, we will depart the hotel and have a stop in Leipzig for lunch.

Leipzig is the most populous city in the German state of Saxony. It is Germany's eighth most populous city as well as the second most populous city in the area of former East Germany after Berlin.

For tourists, it is a very manageable city, with many things to do right in the compact Old Town. The Markt in Leipzig, for many centuries the hub of city life, is dominated by the Old City Hall (Rathaus), a Renaissance building erected in 1556 considered one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in Germany. Southwest of the Leipzig's Markt stands St. Thomas Church (Thomaskirche), home of the world-famous St. Thomas Boys' Choir. The choir dates from 1212, the year the church was built. Johann Sebastian Bach was the church's choirmaster from 1723 to 1750, and his remains are interred here. Built in the 12th century, St. Nicholas Church (Nikolaikirche) has a Neoclassical style in the 1700s which is entirly white.

Opposite one end of the Old City Hall is the entrance to the Mädlerpassage, one of the charming old shopping arcades that tunnel through buildings in the heart of the old city. It leads to two other passages, Königshofpassage and Messehofpassage. These covered streets are worth exploring for the shops, cafés, and restaurants they hide, and for their fascinating décor. Look for the statue of Faust and Mephistopheles in front of Auerbach's Keller, one of the most popular restaurants in Leipzig and where Goethe set the infamous cellar scene (Goethe was a frequent guest of the keller, as was Martin Luther). Opposite the entrance to the Mädlerpassage, behind the Old City Hall, is the Naschmarkt, a quiet little square laid out in 1556. On the north side is the Old Commercial Exchange (Alte Handelsbörse), an Early Baroque building dating from 1678.

One of the oldest coffee shops in Europe still in its original form, Coffe Baum opened in 1717. More than 500 artifacts trace the history of coffee itself and the rise of the coffee house culture in Saxony. Displays include roasters, various methods and machines for brewing coffee, vintage containers and advertising, early porcelain coffee cups, and the leather cases made to protect them. The museum is free, but you won't be able to pass the display case in the café without stopping for a slice of their signature Baumkuchen.

The Mendelssohn House in Leipzig is the only authentically preserved residence of the great composer, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy; originally built in 1844.

Leipzig University, founded in 1409, is one of the world’s oldest universities and the second oldest university of Germany. The university is home to four museums: the Egyptian Museum; the Museum for Musical Instruments; the Museum of Antiquities; and the University Art Collection, with paintings and sculptures dating back to the Middle Ages.
