Tour Berlin with the theme “Dreams and Utopias” . Starting in the center of Berlin, this walking tour will lead you to the Friedrichshain. It aims to help the participants discover the dreams, wishes and utopias of Berlin’s inhabitants over the past decades and show them what the outcomes were.
The first stop of the tour is Karl-Marx-Allee, which after WWII resembled much more a desert of rubble than a street. It was the perfect image to get the people going and let imagination and dreams take over and create a fresh start in Berlin. Nowadays, this avenue is Berlin’s longest historical memorial.
You will then see and learn about the infamous Silesian Station, which became the Ostbahnhof, and continue to the world’s largest open-air gallery, East Side Gallery. Here are presented the dreams and hopes of 118 artists from all over the world, about the promising events that changed the face of Germany and Berlin at the end of the 1980’s.
The last stop of this tour is one of Berlin’s most beautiful bridges, the Oberbaumbrücke. In the middle ages it was a border city and during Berlin’s division, a crossing point between the east and west parts of the city. Nowadays, the bridge links Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, former boroughs that were divided by the Berlin Wall, and has become an important symbol of Berlin’s unity.
