The New Synagogue in Berlin is a Moorish-style building that was built from 1859 to 1866. It was designed by Eduard Knoblauch, though he did not live to see it finished. The synagogue was built with a highly visible, large dome and had refined steel construction of the galleries and roof. It could seat 3,200 people, and it was the largest Jewish place of worship in Germany. By 1933 it was the center of the Jewish community for the 160,000 Jewish citizens of Berlin. Unfortunately it suffered great damage during the bombings of World War II.

After extensive repairs and renovations, the New Synagogue reopened in May 1995. Today the Centrum Judaicum foundation is housed here. It is an institution for the preservation of Jewish memory and tradition and includes a museum. Exhibits trace the history of the synagogue, and guided tours show visitors the open space behind the restored facade, which was once the main synagogue room. Visitors can also see Torahs and scrolls which were excavated as late as 1989 as well as other documents relating to the synagogue.

In contrast to bus tours, on an individual taxi sightseeing tour you have the opportunity to stop almost everywhere - be it for a photo shoot, be it for a snack or a break, be it for a coffee. Or for a longer tour to take a closer look at an object or to have it explained to you (Berlin Cathedral, Hackesche Höfe, Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, KaDeWe are recommended, for example). According to your interests and preferences! And in contrast to a tour, you don't just see a tiny section of our city, City East, the former center and City West, the former West Berlin! So combine the best of walking and bus tours in an Auto City Tour, just like I've always done privately with friends and relatives. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn-Ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury taxi SUV!

What is special is that you are driven around in your own comfort SUV by a local guide who has lived in Berlin for over 20 years. The personal touch, lots of information and anecdotes are guaranteed! You can also determine what interests you more, where you also want to get off or what you simply want to leave out! That is the big difference to the bus tour; quite apart from the fact that it cannot stop everywhere and each stop takes a lot of time. You also have the opportunity to see the entire City East, and not just a very small section of it, as on tours. Berlin is very extensive, has many other centers in addition to these two, and depending on your interests, we can take a stroll in the Hackesche Höfe or at the Wall Memorial. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn-Ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury taxi SUV!
