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!

Tour description

We would have been killed if we had participated in this walking tour 35 years ago! But don't worry it's not dangerous anymore. However, you can feel a little of the crises in this divided city. And you will know it's more than a "Tale of two cities"! It's the story of two different worlds in the middle of the cold war. Including stories of many people who suffered from these conflicts.

 In our walking tour, we will visit: 

  • Rabbit Field
  • Liesen Bridge
  • North Side Gallery
  • Berlin Wall memorial
  • Mauer Park
  • Japanese Cherry Trees on the path of Berlin Wall (in the Spring)

Behzad was great! He made sure to show up even though I was the only one to take the tour, which I thought was really admirable. It was a fun way to get to know the city, and he had great anecdotes and examples. I'd recommend!
