Walkative was established in 2007 by a group of young enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed tour guides. Today, we operate in 20 cities in countries across all of Europe and beyond, including France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Israel. We have already guided more than 3 million tourists, with more than 350 000 in 2023 only! Despite this growth, we stay true to our values: be local and present the history of our cities in a professional, yet entertaining way, accessible for everybody, regardless their budget. We provide service not only in big, well established places like Berlin, Paris or Krakow, but also smaller, less known, yet no less fascinating locations, like Nice, Toruń or Lublin. We cooperate with highly trained, professional guides providing both engaging tip-based and regular fixed-price tours. And most importantly - we know our cities by heart! Join us and stay Walkative!

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.

By far the best walking tour I have ever done! Whether you are an expert in this subject matter or totally clueless you will learn something from this tour. Tina is extremely knowledgable about the communist history of Germany and it was genuinely amazing to see her explain something so complex in such an engaging and concise manner. The walking tour is done mostly around the centre east of Berlin, you're never far from a tram or U-Bahn. Tina shared information about the early history of communism in Germany starting back in the 1800's to the ultimate fall of the wall in 1989. She pointed out interesting architecture, important murals/statues related to the GDR and had plenty of great advice for various food spots, shopping areas, and museums in Berlin.
