Modern Berlin: The New Capital Tour

Contemporary Berlin has earned a reputation as a vibrant bastion of counter culture, progressive thought, and creative spirit.  It’s a city teeming with “stay-cationers”, street art, and non-conformists, while juggling gentrification, a real estate boom, and even a tech boom.

Some of the topics we cover include:

Colliding ambitions: For some, bare post-Cold War areas mean appealing public spaces, while for others this land represents unique investment opportunities.

Urban renewal: The former Tempelhof airport and reclaimed no-man’s-land are two impressive examples of Berlin’s continuous, almost organic, development that few other cities can rival.

"Multi-kulti": Multi-culturalism’s benefits come with integration struggles and stereotypes. On the tour we delve deep into Kreuzberg to focus on Germany’s historical guest worker programs and how this impacts Berlin’s current politics and social dynamics.

Creative spaces: See both famous squats as well as where this endangered lifestyle is being transformed. We’ll discuss how these concepts evolved, and what the future holds for them.

Some of the great sites on this tour include:  Kreuzberg, Tommy Weisbecker Haus, Turkish Market (Tuesdays and Fridays), Oberbaumbrücke, Media Spree, Raw Temple, Tempelhof Airport, and much more!
