Walking Tour Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg

The North-East of Berlin used to be farmland with a handful of windmills in the early 19th century. Today, it accomodates a quarter of pre-WWII residential houses which is unparalleled in Germany in its homogeneity. Relatively unscathed in WWII, the area left and right of Schönhauser Allee was severely neglected afterwards until the turnaround, when a large part of the dilapidated buildings was redeveloped.

The former workers’ settlement was also a center of Jewish life up until the 1940s. When East Berlin was still the capital of the GDR, Prenzlauer Berg was already characterized by students, artists and intellectuals.

Oppositionist lobbies started gathering here in the 1970s and massively influenced the political landscape in 1989, ultimately leading to the German Reunification from the Eastern German side.

The district rose to magnetically attracting alternatives and heirs of a rather bohemian lifestyle from all over the world after the Wall had fallen. Ever since Prenzlauer Berg gained the attention of higher income groups and the subsequent rent increase began, the population has started to change profoundly. Critical analyses see therein a threat to the social melange and the colorful, attractive lifestyle of the area.

It was very interesting to immerse into the history of the Karl-Marx-Allee. It was told very vividly and underlined with pictured by our guide from Sonderweg Berlin. Even though we live in Berlin for a long time now, these "Kiez" tours enrich us. Highly recommendable!

The tour was very personal and competent and was a lot of fun. A great insight to the quarter and its history! We will do this tour again!

We had a very pleasant tour through Prenzlauer Berg. Even though all other participants had cancelled, the guide went on the tour with just the two of us. We´ve been living in that area for 6 years and were surprised about what we learned. The tour is also recommendable for long-time residents.

The tour duration is too long, you are not able to take all the information in.

The tour "Prenzlauer Berg" with Tobias Schwabe was very informative and good. We also did another tour with him, "Kreuzberg 61" which is only to be recommended.

It was a lot of fun. We did learn a lot of new things. A lot better than discover a city by bus.
