The movie-music-art-literature-fine art tour
If you read biographies of writers, you probably realized that writing and walking goes hand in hand. Hemingway was a big walker, so were Charles Dickens, Henry David Thoreau, Ernest Hemingway, Kate Chopin, Ralph Waldo Emerson and also contemporary writers like Delphine de Vigan. I still love writing and aim to do it every day but in the tradition of the big writers I feel like it should be combined with walking. What better idea then to also offer walking tours?
Note: As I am still on the one hour -winter schedule, I will only discuss two buildings, so as for now, there is not much architecture present in the tour!
The tour starts in front of the red island where Marlene Dietrich grew up.
We continue to David Bowie's former apartment at Hauptstrasse 155, where we learn more about his and Iggy Pop's life in Berlin.
Kleistpark, named after probably the most tragic of all German romantic writers, here we can discuss German romanticism, as well as the so-called negative side of romanticism, the gothic romance.
In between, we come across some architectural gems like Berlin's first high-rise building in the New Objectivity style, the Karthreiner House, and the brutalist Pallaseum, which is inextricably linked to the history of German gangsta rap.

How much does this tour cost?
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
