City West - History and Art Free Walking Tour
Hi, I'm Behzad from Iran, formerly Ph.D. student in physics, and currently passionate about the history and vibes of Berlin, a city with an amazing history in each corner and a multiculti culture. Why am I doing this? For more than a year, we have had a large group that goes out every week and visits a new neighborhood of the city, and we haven't visited a place twice! So I decided to share this experience and show Berlin, and all layers of it, to an even larger group of people which are you! Guruwalkers!
Do you know Berlin was a divided city even before WWII?
Berlin during the Empire era (1871-1918) and the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) was marked by significant class conflict and division, particularly between the city's western and eastern parts.
In the empire era and industrialization, the western part of Berlin was home to the city's wealthy and influential classes. In contrast, the eastern part was more working-class and industrially focused.
You can find the trace of those conflicts in the most tragic incidents of the 20th century, and also in our walking tour in Berlin!
During this tour, you will visit some streets and Boulevards in the western part of the city and many places including:
- Charlottenburg Gate
- University of Arts
- Technical University of Berlin
- Stage Theater
- Former Synagogue and many villas in Fasanenstrasse
- finally the famous KaDeWe
