[StattReisen Berlin Tour] Auf den Spuren der Kreuzberger Bohème  
Zum 100. Geburtstag des Maler-Poeten Kurt Mühlenhaupt  
Stadtführungen Berlin  
Stadtführungen in Berlin  
unSICHTBAR – Das Stalag III D in Lichterfelde Süd  
An einem Sonntag gegen Ende des Frühlings verirre ich mich nach Lichterfelde Süd und entdecke inmitten einer verwunschenen Brache die Spuren des ehemaligen Kriegsgefangenenlagers Stalag III D.  
Kindertouren  
StattReisen Berlin bietet zahlreiche Stadtführungen und Rallyes an, die speziell für Kinder von 8 bis 12 Jahren entwickelt worden sind.  
unSICHTBAR – Drei Schüsse am Ku’damm  
Eine gewöhnliche Bushaltestelle am oberen Ende des Kurfürstendamms / Ecke Joachim-Friedrich-Straße. Der Verkehr tost, geschäftiges Treiben im Umfeld. Keine*r der auf den Bus Wartenden kennt die unscheinbare Gedenktafel, die fünf Meter neben ihnen in den Boden eingelassen ist. Sie befindet sich schon 31 Jahre dort. Die wenigsten der Passanten wissen, was dort vor 53 Jahren geschah.  
unSICHTBAR – Der Wasserturm am Pfuhlgelände  
Naturfreund? Ja, das bin ich gewiss. So gern ich den Trubel in unserer Stadt mag, aber ich wohne mitten im grünen Mariendorf und ich liebe es. So manch Besucher fühlte sich hier wie auf dem Land. Und dabei habe ich noch nicht mal allen das idyllische Gelände am Pfuhl gezeigt. Denn da gibt es derzeit nicht nur viel Grünes und Blühendes, sondern auch einen Turm zu entdecken.  
unSICHTBAR – il-legale Kunst  
Bald können wir endlich wieder Stadtspaziergänge mit Gruppen unternehmen. Doch bis dahin seid ihr noch ein paar Tage ohne uns unterwegs, vielleicht im eigenen Kiez, vielleicht in einem anderen Teil der Stadt oder auch gar nicht in Berlin. Mein Vorschlag für den nächsten Spaziergang: egal wo ihr seid, widmet euch doch der legalen und illegalen Kunst, die den öffentlichen Raum erobert, besetzt, verschandelt – ganz wie ihr es für euch einschätzt.  
Die geheimnisvollen Gewölbe unter dem Kreuzberg-Denkmal  
1821, vor 200 Jahren, wurde das Nationaldenkmal für die Befreiungskriege auf dem damaligen Tempelhofer Berg eingeweiht. Das Denkmal hat den Grundriss eines Kreuzes, und die Spitze bekrönt das „Eiserne Kreuz“. So erklärt sich der Name Kreuzberg, den zunächst der „Berg“ bekam und 1921 – aus Anlass des 100. Jahrestages der Einweihung des Denkmals – der Berliner Bezirk. Kaum jemand weiß, dass sich unter dem Denkmal riesige Gewölbe befinden, die als Kunstdepot dienen und im Winter von Fledermäusen bewohnt werden.

About Us

StattReisen was founded in 1983 by historians and teachers with the aim of teaching history in a lively way. Since then we have been very successful in showing people around Berlin on 50 different city walks with the emphasis on politics, history and daily life. In addition, we organize package tours to Berlin for English speaking groups. Our speciality is the individual arrangement of tours for private groups.

All our tours are conducted by experienced guides with varied backgrounds, such as history, political or social science, journalism, architecture, arts or acting.

We find that Berlin's facets can be shown best on walking tours. These walks normally last about two hours and take up to 20 people. This limited number of participants allows very intensive listening and opportunities for questions and discussions. In every respect, you get a more intimate view of sites.

For those who want to get a quick overview of the city or wish to get to know Berlin under a certain topic (eg "Americans in Berlin after World War II") we offer sightseeing tours by bus with stops at locations of your choice.

Our Tours

This summary shows you a selection of 6 walking tours that we think might be most interesting for groups. For these tours, you find a description below.

Prussia - Palaces - Politics

Discover the historic heart of Berlin

Every street in the center of Berlin has history, much of it no longer visible: On this walk you will meet the ghosts and murmers of Prussians and Prussian palaces, Nazis and Nazi architecture, Communists and real, existing socialist architecture, as well as visit some sites of the present.

Meeting point: book store "Berlin Story", Unter den Linden 40 (near S Brandenburger Tor, Bus 100, 200)

 

Wall Where was the Wall

Berlin: the heart of the cold war. So little is left. Walking the former "deathstrip" between Checkpoint Charlie and Potsdam Square, listen to the stories of how a city was violently split in 1961, how one lived in the divided city, how some attempted to escape from the east, how the wall fell in 1989, and memory today.

Meeting point: Underground Station Stadtmitte, on the platform of the U6 (NOT of the U2!)

By Bike - Along the Berlin Wall

 Three-hour bike-tour in English - Along the Berlin Wall to Pankow

Nazi Fascism - Takeover of a Town during the "Third Reich"

On this tour you'll see traces and places of the Nazi regime. Hitler used prestigious locations for his flag and torch parades to blind the world. His actual plans to deal with people were soon to be seen in new despicable laws, bookburnings, preparation for World War II and the murder of millions of people. The infamous central offices of Nazi planning and control were Hitler's Reichschancellery, Goebbel's Propaganda Ministry, Göring's Ministry of Air Force, and the terrifying Gestapo Headquarters which are now a memorial of Nazi terror.

Jewish Life in Berlin

The extinguishing of Jewish life in Berlin left a large gap in Berlin society. On this tour we walk through the former Jewish quarter. One of our stops will be the beautiful New Synagogue with its Judaic Center. Hear about Jewish life in Berlin in the past and today's growth of the Jewish Community due to immigration from Russia.

Kreuzberg - Immigrant Berlin

Explore Kreuzberg, the smallest but the most colourful district of Berlin. Berlin has always been home for immigrants, in former centuries for Huguenots, Jews and Silesians. During the past decades, migrants came mainly from Turkey, Poland and other Eastern countries, with an increasing number after the fall of the "Iron Curtain". Is this vital mixture of nationalities, religions and types of food in Kreuzberg the multi-cultural society of the future?

Modern Berlin - The New City Center

Potsdam Square, the busy heart of Berlin before World War II, was an empty "no man's land" during the division of Berlin after the war. It is now being constructed as a new and modern city center. Berliners are not sure yet if this will be the place where the city's heart can beat. Form your own opinion of this new Berlin.

Potsdam - Residence of Frederick the Great

To many outside Germany think Potsdam, where the Prussian Kings lived, symbolized Prussia; one spoke of a battle between Potsdam and Weimar for the German soul. But what was Potsdam really? A city of the military, certainly, but also a city of immigrants; a city defined by the court, yes, but also much, more.

Meeting point: Potsdam, Alter Markt, Obelisk,
close to Potsdam-Hauptbahnhof (S7; RB)
