Berlin was the center of the major historical events of the 20th century: now you can discover it through our virtual guided live tours.

The year 2020 brought a number of restrictions that have changed the way we live, including travel abroad and, of course, the experience of guided tours. The expected school trip for many high schools and colleges has been put on hold for the time being.
However, life goes on.
Therefore, and at the request of several teachers and travel partners, we at ViveBerlin Tours have developed live virtual interactive tours of Berlin; a stimulating educational tool that we currently propose as an alternative to the school trip or as an enriching complement to classroom teaching.
These online tours are designed to be transmitted absolutely live, interactive and educationally oriented, also for students of German from A2 level and above!
In this way, students can get to know the historical, cultural and pedagogical richness of Berlin without having to travel to the German capital.
