Tour description

Join us to learn about the most revolutionary and controversial movements in world history: welcome to the Berlin Communist & Socialist tour. The goal of the tour is to give you a deeper understanding of movements that have changed and largely shaped world history from the end of the 19th century up to the present day. From Marx and Engels, through revolution led by Luxembourg and Liebknecht, the Cold War and the Berlin Wall up to leftwing movements today.

After this 3 hours Walkative journey, you’ll form a historical Gestalt of communist & socialist ideas! Both in Germany and Europe (and even beyond). Both before and after WWII. Long before and long after.

Really really enjoyed this tour with Will! I didn’t know a whole lot about the history of communism / socialism in Germany before taking the tour but that didn’t matter at all - Will made everything so easy to understand and kept it very interesting. Will also gave us some fantastic recommendations for things to do and places to eat in Berlin after the tour which was super kind of him. All in all I highly recommend this tour!

Very nice tour! Different from the standard tour and you get to learn much about what has shaped Berlin as it is today! Our Guru Will was super funny! he made the tour much more interesting with a lot of facts. After it, he shared with us a link to get his personal Google Maps with interesting spots around the city. I would recommend it 100%!
