The Highlights of Berlin Accessible Driving Tour has a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it is entirely step-free, and it encounters very few hills and cobblestones. It did not receive a 5 star rating because it does involve transferring to a regular seat in a spacious van during the driving part of the tour (please note, it is possible to book this tour with an accessible van at an additional cost (see below under tour details).
Checkpoint Charlie (shown in the photo on the left) and Brandenburg Gate (shown on the right) will be viewed during your driving tour in Berlin. The area around the replica of the Checkpoint Charlie guardhouse is flat and smooth and so is the outdoor area at the Brandenburg Gate. The Gate was one of the original Prussian gates to the city and was also the site of President Kennedy and President Reagan’s famous speeches.
The Schloss Charlottenburg (pictured on the right below) is one of the stops on this accessible driving tour. The Palace is the largest palace in Berlin and the only surviving royal residence in the city. From outside, you will have beautiful picture opportunities! Most of the areas surrounding the palace is flat and smooth, however, there are some areas with cobblestones.
