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

This special tour will take you through all the important periods of Berlin's history! These periods were really important because they had a massive impact on the world and, in some cases, completely changed the world!
Let's tell you in a different way. Maybe it's unbelievable, but you can describe Berlin like this:

  1. A Medieval City
  2. Capital of a powerful Kingdom
  3. An industrialized city
  4. A progressive city
  5. Headquarters of the crime
  6. A fallen city
  7. A socialist city
  8. A liberal city
  9. A Modern City


And you will visit many important places of the city related to those parts like:

  1. St. Mary's Church (Marienkirche)
  2. Museum island (Museumsinsel)
  3. Hacke's Courtyards (Hackesche Höfe)
  4. Alexanderplatz
  5. Memorial of Book Burning (Denkmal zur Bücherverbrennung)
  6. Franciscan monastery church (Franziskaner-Klosterkirche)
  7. Karl Marx Boulevard (Karl-Marx-Allee)
  8. Independent art courtyard (Haus Schwartzenberg)
  9. Volkswagen Exhibition (DRIVE. Volkswagen Gruppe Forum)


You have to understand that it will a long walking tour (about 3 hours walk). And also, it's not possible to tell you the history in details and the explanation will be in short because of time limit. But you can ask as many questions as you have and we can discuss more during the tour.

So if it's your first time in Berlin or you want to know about its rich history this tour suits you!
