Look forward to a real Leipziger, with life experience and fun in communication. Greetings from Jens

About the tour

A real contemporary witness will take you on a discovery tour in his hometown. We visit places from the exciting autumn of 1989, look at developments back then and discuss the state of affairs today. How was it back then in the so-called "Hero City", what did people hope and expect, and how did Leipzig develop afterwards? What was life like here in the late 80s? How do the people of Leipzig live today? All of this will occupy us during the Leipzig 89 tour. Stops will include: Former Pretrial Detention Center of the State Security, Nikolaikirche, Gewandhaus, parts of the inner city ring, District Administration of State Security Important information: The tour takes place in German. Please register at least 24 hours before the planned tour start. Also note the information on Covid 19. If you want, bring a mouth and nose protection with you. As planned, we will not visit any places where this is required. Of course we adhere to the distance rules. Thanks for your time, greetings from Jens

Die persönlichste Tour die ich bislang jemals irgendwo mitgemacht habe. Ein echter Zeitzeuge eben, der intensive Einblicke in das Leben früher hier liefert. Ganz nebenbei auch noch ein echt symphatischer Zeitgenosse. Dankeschön!

Sehr individuelle Tor, ein äußerst kundiger und redegewandter Guide. Besonders geeignet für Menschen, die nicht auf fast automatisiert vorgetragene "Textbausteine" stehen. Alles individuell und auch spontan-perfekt!
