Tour description

Hello dear Walker, how was life in Leipzig in the 1980s. What did young people from Leipzig do back then? Where did you go to the disco? What did they dream of? A real contemporary witness goes on tour with you to the favorite places of his youth. how does it look today, which places has time long since washed away? You will find out on this tour. Attention, important note: This is not a classic sightseeing tour according to the motto: "On the left you can see the church XYZ from the year ,,," This walk is about the lifestyle of the then young people in Leipzig, coupled with stories and experiences from what is now almost unimaginable Time. The tour ends again at the starting point, directly in front of the Breuninger fashion house. Other dates / tours are possible on request. Stations will include: Augustusplatz, Marktplatz, Dittrichring, Petersstrasse

Definitiv ein Highlight für jeden wirklich an Geschichte interessierten. Für mich waren viele spannende neue Erkenntnisse dabei,10x besser wie so manche öde TV-Doku über die DDR! Keinerlei Stadtführung,was ich absolut gut fand! Bei diesem Guru hört man wirklich extrem gerne zu.
