To get around the city conveniently, consider the City Sightseeing hop-on-hop-off bus tour. This tour allows you to explore Berlin's top attractions at your own pace. However, due to the Fan Zones, City Sightseeing Berlin cannot access its usual stops at the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. Instead, a temporary stop will be in front of Madame Tussauds Berlin.

Madame Tussauds Berlin features wax figures of some of the world's most famous football players, including Manuel Neuer, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé, and Joshua Kimmich. Booking a combi ticket for the City Sightseeing bus and Madame Tussauds during the tournament is a great way to experience both attractions. This allows you to seamlessly combine sightseeing with an immersive football experience.
