Old Berlin Walking Tour

Walking Tour Spandauer Vorstadt/Courtyards

Nikolai Quarter, Berlin`s cradle, where everything started, when Berlin was a small settlement at the eastern banks of the Spree river, was destroyed completely during World War II.
The GDR-Government restored it due to the 750 years celebration of Berlin in 1987, but not historically correct.
That`s why a real, authentic old part of town today is just “Spandauer Vorstadt”, formerly situated right in front of the medieval fortification walls of old Berlin.

Compared to the close-by center of Berlin, Spandauer Vorstadt survived the war rather undistroyed. With its narrow streets,  lines of baroque houses (17th century) and romantic courtyards, it belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage and is a must for every Berlin visitor.

Enjoy with us following highlights:

Hackescher Markt, Hackesche Höfe, Sophienstr. Sophie-Gips-Höfe, Sophies Ballroom, Sophien Church, Große Hamburger-Street, Oranienburger Street, Heckmannhöfe, New Synagogue, Postfuhramt, Friedrichstr. …

Basics:

  • Tour parameters: individual and private walking tour

BErlin Historical Walking Tour

Not only for historians

Berlin is a rather young city in European comparison. Only in 1987 was its 750th anniversary celebrated on both sides of the Wall.

But what has the city experienced!

From an unimportant trading post situated at a ford across the Spree – in the middle of the “gritting sandbox of the empire”, Brandenburg – it first became an electoral residence city and then, from 1701, the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia.
After the end of the Napoleonic war, the city had to cope with a huge population explosion. Berlin became an industrial city – Siemens, AEG and Borsig started here in the middle of the 19th century.
With the foundation of the German Empire in 1871 Berlin became the capital of the German Empire and the most important metropolis in Germany. Already in 1880 Berlin had 1 million inhabitants, making it one of the largest cities in the world, along with London and Paris.

Pariser Platz Berlin Tiergarten Brandenburger Tor Berlin

The upheavals of the 20th century, World War I, the conflict-laden Weimar Republic, the Nazi era, house fighting at the end of the war – Berlin was more or less destroyed by up to 95% – then reconstruction, the economic miracle in the western part, division, the Wall, reunification and now a population explosion again with all its advantages and disadvantages. This city never comes to rest.

During our Berlin historical walking tour through the old city centre, our historically educated guide unfolds the whole kaleidoscope of Berlin’s development from the beginnings to the present.
No historical layer is left out, the monuments, buildings, memorials and ruins shown speak their own language.

An exciting historical walkin tour with knowledgeable but also humorous guides, suitable not only for historians but also for all those who want to take a deep look into Berlin’s diverse, glorious but also painful past.

Inspiring Walks through City-East and City-West

In Berlin you will find two inner city-centres:

The historic city-centre (City-East) is located right east of the Brandenburg Gate. Here you have the most famous hightlights like Gendarmenmarkt, Unter den Linden or Museums Island.

The former city-centre of West-Berlin is located around famous Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial Church and Zoo Station, close to the wonderful boulevard Kurfürstendamm.

We invite to explore with us both city centres on a versatile
Berlin City walking tour.

 

Private Walking Tour Berlin City-East (Old Berlin)

Berlin City Walking Tour - East-BerlinThe historic city centre is located directly east of the Brandenburg Gate. Here many world-famous highlights are within walking distance.

Starting point of the 3hrs. tour is usually Potsdamer Platz with its magnificent architecture. From there  we walk first along the former death strip to the Brandenburg Gate. A short detour to the government quarter is also possible.
In front of the Brandenburg Gate our city-guide will tell you why Napoleon was often called a horse thief after the French occupation of Berlin.
Continue walking up the Linden, the magnificent boulevard of the old city centre. The grand Gendarmenmarkt is  considered the most beautiful square in Berlin and still bears witness to Prussia’s glory and glory today.
Another Prussian gem is nearby: Bebelplatz with the State Opera House,  St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, seat of the Catholic bishop (!) and the Humboldt University, which once shaped Berlin’s reputation as a metropolis of culture, science and research.
The tour continues to the world-famous Museum Island, a unique ensemble of museums, which was placed under Unesco protection in 1990.
If you wish so, we will be happy to take you to the nearby Spandauer Vorstadt after the Museum Island. There you can relax from all the running – having lunch or dinner in one of the excellent restaurants.

A selection of our exciting Berlin insider walking tours:

Walking Tour Kreuzberg Neighbourhood

Walking Tour Berlin Insider - Kreuzberg NeighbourhoodIn the course of the population explosion of the 19th century, Kreuzberg became one of the typical Berlin tenement housing quarters built around the old city centre.
After the war, the part of Kreuzberg that we would like to show you on this walking tour Berlin Insider was considered the Montmartre of Berlin – somewhat run-down perhaps, but not as destroyed as the close-by neighborhoods.
When the Berlin Wall was built in 1961, Kreuzberg was suddenly surrounded by the Wall on three sides. One of the reasons why it was able to develop here a social biotope of its own. Even today – 25 years after the fall of the Wall – Kreuzberg is still something very special. A motley melting pot of different life forms and ideas – a wild mixture of migrant and trendy neighbourhoods. Not free of social conflicts and clashes between different political groups, but endearing in its diversity.
But the people of Kreuzberg agree on one thing. They want to prevent gentrification at all costs, which is turning the neighboring East Berlin districts (Friedrichhain, Prenzlauer Berg) more and more into the playground of the wealthy.

Walking Tour Jewish Berlin

Walking Tour Berlin Insider - New SynagogueJewish life in Berlin – Before 1933, the Spandauer Vorstadt, parts of which are also known as the “Scheunenviertel”, was a quarter with a high Jewish population.
The consequences of Nazi rule have not yet been eradicated, but there is once again a steadily growing Jewish community with a rich cultural life.
On this special Berlin walking tour, our city guides will introduce you to the Spandauer Vorstadt also from the perspective of Jewish life in the past and present.

(“Tolerance Str.”), Jewish School, oldest Jewish cemetery with tombstone of Moses Mendelsohn, Oranienburger Str., New Synagogue, Heckmannhöfe, former Postfuhramt …

The elegant West of the “Roaring Twenties” 
Walking Tour Berlin Insider - KurfürstendammA fascinating city walk through the district Charlottenburg, once the richest city in Germany – independent until it became a Greater Berlin in 1920.
