I took Mr Schwabe's tour with my two daughters (16, 14) in August and all three of us agreed that it was very interesting and informative. We really enjoyed his great knowledge and his positively relaxed nature. Highly recommended!

Very lively guided tour with many interesting hidden facts: Who would have thought that there is a mountain with the name Kreuzberg in Berlin!

Although we have been living in Berlin for a long time, we were able to learn a lot of new and interesting things. It was a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere with the guide, who also smoked quite hidden places close to us

great

A very entertaining tour with lots of information. Tobias's great wealth of knowledge combined with a very likeable personality have contributed to the fact that we have learned a lot about Kreuzberg and would like to recommend this tour in any case

The walk was very informative and our expectations were fulfilled. The guide has very well conveyed the history of the district.

great

It was a varied and informative tour through Kreuzberg. I liked the beautiful architecture of the quarter, the history, the Kreuzberg and the wonderful view from up there very much. The flair of the Bergmannstraße could be enjoyed individually after the end of the tour.

Description

Between Kreuzberg and Hallesches Tor

In reference to its former zip code, the larger Western part of Berlin-Kreuzberg is commonly called Kreuzberg 61. A monument reminding of the Wars of Liberation has been towering over the highest elevation of the former »Tempelhofer Vorstadt« (suburb) since 1821. »Kreuzberg« (literally: cross-hill) was founded in 1920 and supposedly got its name from the Iron Cross at the tip of this monument.

A large number of Gründerzeit tenements shapes the neighborhood until today. Unlike other parts of Berlin, the area between Hallesches Tor and Viktoriapark survived the bombings of WWII relatively unharmed. In the course of area rehabilitations, a greater part of the well-preserved building stock fell victim to a rigorous demolition policy starting in the 1960s and lasting up until the late 1970s.

Fortunately, residents opposed this policy and succeeded in saving a large number of the meanwhile heritage-protected buildings from this urban clear cutting. The squatting era is over. Despite the prevailing gentrification, the neighborhood around Bergmannstraße is still marked by an alternative multiculturalism.
