MITTEndrin – In the heart of Berlin - A tour full of contrasts between alternative and fancy

MITTEndrin – In the heart of Berlin - A tour full of contrasts between alternative and fancy

The discrepancies in Berlin's geographical center couldn't be more striking. Directly next to modern architecture you find decrepit facades. Dropouts meet night owls, revellers and flaneurs. Commercial galleries and expensive boutiques stand in contrast to nonconformist art centers, like the ruins of the “Tacheles” and the “House Schwarzenberg”. Let's jointly discover this special neighbourhood right in the city's center, where the differences are just as fascinating as the traces of Jewish life which we will encounter again and again on this tour.  

The tour is also offered in English and in French.

"That’s our house..."

- Kreuzberg colourful and unruly

House in Kreuzberg

The colourful and unruly district Kreuzberg is the theme of our walk. In this particular neighbourhood we will visit places that point a finger at the washed-up redevelopment policy of the 70s and 80s and that tell us of battles fought by Kreuzberg's residents in order to determine their living spaces autonomously. The tour also leads us to prominent scenes of the legendary demonstrations traditionally held on May 1. We will show you that Kreuzberg is not only the habitat of those who are truculent and wild, but that it is also a biotope for those who are creative and constructive, and a place that offers a very lively culture and music scene.

The tour is also offered in English and in French.

The scar in the city – A tour along the Wall far off the beaten tracks

The scar in the city – A tour along the Wall far off the beaten tracks

Where exactly did the Wall stand and what is left of it? What events marked the time before and after the so-called “Wende”, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the German reunification? What personal experiences do the Berliners connect with the division of their city. These and many other questions shall be explored on our tour through the frontier zone between the districts Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Treptow. In doing so, certain aspects of Berlin's history will come to life again and enlighten how the Wall changed and shaped the life of the Berliners, in the eastern as well as in the western part of the city.

The tour is also offered in English and in French.

Kreuzberg 61 – Urban district with charm and flair

Kreuzberg 61 – Urban district with charm and flair

Our tour through Kreuzberg 61 is going to be a very leisurely and sometimes even romantic promenade. Together we will climb the highest mountain of the inner city and disclose the secret of the Berlin Vatican. In an inner courtyard, totally out of character for Berlin, the surrounding city is forgotten for a wile. A cosy 19th-century market hall invites to go shopping like in former times. And who believes that one can dander only in Paris, is grossly mistaken! Together we will discover the Champs-Élysées of Kreuzberg. Come with us and let yourself be guided to surprising and unexpected places in Kreuzberg where time seems to have stood still.

The tour is also offered in English.

Why of all places Prenzlauer Berg? - A tour about luck seekers and hipsters

Why of all places Prenzlauer Berg? - A tour about luck seekers and hipsters

Why of all places Prenzlauer Berg? – This was our question and we found out that the hilly district has always attracted many different people. The people who live in Prenzlauer Berg today differ a lot from the original working class audience. Meanwhile nearly all of the area has been refurbished and entices and shines like a doll’s house. Former clubs, pubs, bars and artists – hipsters establishing the scene- had to move. One man’s joy is another man’s sorrow. We will show you how Prenzlauer Berg has changed during the last century and examine the pursuit of happiness. What makes people happy? What are they doing for it and how can general perceptions of luck and happiness change during time? We will listen to old Prenzlauer Bergians, study the facades of houses, climb an alternative vineyard, visit the famous artist Käthe Kollwitz in her Prenzl’ Berg and show you Germany’s biggest Synagogue. We will risk an imaginary jump into Berlin’s old bath tub; you will see our “Casting Allee” and a place where you can even buy luck. More stories await you once you dare to follow us on the traces of luck seekers and hipsters...
