Join us to learn about the most revolutionary and controversial movements in world history: welcome to the Berlin Communist & Socialist tour. The goal of the tour is to give you a deeper understanding of movements that have changed and largely shaped world history from the end of the 19th century up to the present day. From Marx and Engels, through revolution led by Luxembourg and Liebknecht, the Cold War and the Berlin Wall up to leftwing movements today.
After this 3 hours Walkative journey, you’ll form a historical Gestalt of communist & socialist ideas! Both in Germany and Europe (and even beyond). Both before and after WWII. Long before and long after.
Tour through the most ALTERNATIVE neighborhood in Berlin.
With the best scene of the punk-rock era. Here David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode , among others, created an alternative and counterculture atmosphere that is still lived in its streets today.
The tour starts at Rio -Raiser-Platz where we will talk about the transformation of Kreuzberg, from the raising of the wall to the present day.
Walking through the neighborhood you will learn about the history and evolution of graffiti until it became Street Art. We will see murals such as the Astronaut-Cosmonaut , by Victor Ash; Nature Morte, by Roa and The Pink Man , by Blue. And of course, we will get to know the 1UP and the Berlin Kids collectives, famous for their works marked by messages of protest and social criticism.
In the second part of the tour we will walk through the symbol of Berlin, East Side Gallery, the longest section of the wall in Berlin and the largest art canvas in the world. We will know the social aspects of a city divided by a wall through art.
We will cross the Oberbaumbrücke, the most fascinating bridge in Berlin, and back into the heart of Kreuzberg, we will see three impressive murals.
Finally, I have prepared recommendations for you to continue discovering the neighborhood on your own.
The idea of this tour was born to make the authenticity of the city known through the various changes that have taken place in Berlin over the years but above all to tell you a little piece of Berlin history. The professionalism and beauty of a place to be told start from the love for the city we live in that we never stop discovering and browsing. I'll start by talking about the Neptune Fountain and then mention the TV Tower. After introducing ourselves and starting our walking tour we will go to the Museum Island but we will first pass by the Nikolai Kirche (St. Nicholas Church) in Berlin which is not always open. If anyone wishes, they can come in for a visit. We will continue our tour on foot and visit the DDR Museum (DDR Museum) and then continue and see the other museums in Berlin that I will explain to you during our journey. It will eventually be possible to enter the museum of the GDR as well as in the church of San Nicola but always respecting the current directives especially current. I will let you know before the tour if it will be possible or not to enter one of these places. This will be possible if we are a small, small group. Of course I will inform you before or during the tour if there are any additional costs related to entry to the DDR Museum as well as for the church. We will continue our tour arriving at Unter der Linden where it will be possible to take pictures and where it will be possible to see the burning of books located in the Bebelplatz near the Humboldt University and the Berlin Opera House (Humboldt Universität und Deutsche Oper). From Unter der Linden we will continue the tour arriving up to Brandenburger Tor which I will explain in great detail.
