On arrival

We meet by the small square directly opposite the S-Bahn exit of the Sternschanze station. There are two exits for this station, so please ensure you exit via the S-Bahn exit (and not the U-Bahn). After exiting the station (there will be a juice stand to your left), cross the road directly in front of you to the paved area with street benches and a small wooden rotunda/hut called ‘Café Tanten’. Your guide will be waiting to meet you right there.

Things to note

Booking for this tour is recommended to reserve your space specially during high season. This helps us to guarantee you’ll receive a top quality tour!
