Old BerlinWalking Tour - Courtyards

Walking Tour Spandauer Vorstadt/Courtyards

Old Berlin walking tour features “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 the 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.
