City Trips

The Berlin of the Homeless

Place: Berlin

How do you live as a homeless person in Berlin? Where do you sleep, what do you eat? During the city tours of "querstadtein" the former homeless guides will show you the places of their past and tell you about their lives. This is not only extraordinarily exciting and brings a new perspective on the familiar, but at the same time promotes dialogue with a fringe group of society that is too often forgotten. Guided tours through Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Mitte are currently offered.

Berlin's darkest secrets

Place: Berlin

There is an incredible amount of history in Berlin, but you don't see it on every street corner. The "Berlin Trail Search" is dedicated to the most exciting and above all darkest episodes in Berlin's history - the colonial past, eugenics and euthanasia in the 20th century, the criminal Kreuzberg or the history of poverty in Berlin. Join a tour, on foot or on your bike, and be sure to tell stories about Berlin that even very few Berliners will be able to tell.

The "Berlin Underworlds" have long since ceased to be a secret, but they still remain hidden to most Berliners. Air-raid shelters from the Second World War, abandoned underground stations, bunkers from the Cold War, the Kindl brewery in Neukölln and escape tunnels during the Wall period - you can learn a lot about the city's history under the streets of Berlin.
