Description

Stroll away from the classic sights through the backyards of Berlin Mitte. The old alleys and courtyards of today's trendy district around the Hackesche Höfe are brimming with history and stories of the last 300 years.

Our tour begins at Hackescher Markt, leads through the Schwarzenberg house where time seems to have stopped and through the famous Hackescher Höfe. We follow the small streets that still correspond to the city's 18th century layout and walk in the footsteps of the old Jewish community to the New Synagogue. You will also hear the story of the St. Hedwig Hospital, the baroque St. Sophia Church and the Jewish cemetery from 1671.

Some of the backyards we will be looking at are so tranquil that you almost forget the turbulent Berlin, others are completely conquered - see how horse stables have become restaurants, factories have become galleries and poor tenements have become luxury apartments. You won't find sleepy boys and workers' children these days - gentrification has Berlin Mitte firmly under control. After the fall of the wall, this quarter, which was located in the east of the city, was taken over by squatters, students and young artists; today you can find the highest rents in the city here.

We end our tour in front of Clärchens Ballhaus, the oldest ballroom in Berlin, which still adorns the entrance sign of regular guest Otto Dix. Once located in the backyard, today you can enjoy your beer in the front garden - where doors lead to nowhere and you can still see on the walls that a front house is missing here. On this tour, the testimonies of history are contrasted with modern life.

Please note
