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?

Tour description

Schöneberg's tour

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.

Optional is 
  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.

Die Tour mit Kyria hat Spaß gemacht. Auch für mich als Berlinerin waren viele neue Infos und Fun Facts dabei. Kyria hat ein gutes Insiderwissen zum Bezirk und einen unterhaltsamen und spannenden Erzählstil. Dankeschön. Gerne machen wir das wieder mal 😊.

Ignorant American writing here! Loved hearing where famous horror-movie tropes that are alive and well today come from. Knew jack shit about Dark romanticism, German expressionism and how they were pioneers of Tim Burton, Ridle Scott and all of my heroes. I am a somewhat tired film student who has found some new inspiration here. Forever grateful for this tour!

I was only moderately interested in David Bowie or Marlene Dietrich before I went on the tour. The day I went on this tour was the day I decided to move to Berlin and breathe all of the history and culture , Kyria generously diseminated throughout the tour. Not exaggerated! I have been listenting to him nonstop now and even ordered his biography! AAANd also discovered the movies of the WEimar republic. How did I became 35 years old and never heard of this gold??So grateful for this tour!
