We want you to enjoy Berlin as much as we do, but in the beginning you might like to have someone show you around. At the Circus we have put together some DIY Walking Tours, as well as our regular Crazy Tours to those hidden corners of the city you might otherwise not get to see, and Jimbo’s Cheap Man’s Bus Tour, an audio commentary for a city tour on public transport.
Brewer’s Berlin Tours
We also have a close cooperation with Brewer’s Berlin Tours, who offer a range of different tours from short introductions to the city to the all-day Best of Berlin, the most thorough and informative way to explore the city. They also have a range of themed tours, and best of all, they pick up from the reception of The Circus. Check out www.brewersberlintours.de for more information

Berlin by Bike, Boat and Bus
For a tour around Berlin in two wheels, check out Fat Tire Bike Tours (www.fattirebiketoursberlin.com), based close to the television tower at Alexanderplatz. You can also rent a bike from us at the reception.
For those who don't want to walk, or can't, Berlin has several Bus tours on offer as well. We recommend the independent bus tour from Jaunts. They don't just go to the big sights but also include information on squads and markets in Berlin. You can book you own tour here: www.jauntsberlin.de. Of course there are a lot of different tours, all of them have a multi-language service. Decide for yourself:
One of the best ways of cruising through Berlin is by boat. The Spree River is passing by nearly all sights, and so do the ships. Scenic, recommendable! Also, you can buy your tickets on reception:
