What you'll do
I am proposing you an experience in the heart of Berlin, the district of Mitte divided by the Wall, was one of the poorest area. It finally turned out to be the first victim of Berlin’s gentrification and is now one of the most expensive. It is now a ‘posh’ area, destroying the old soul of the 90’s, as old squats, bars and other places, that still resist and fight against the big machine of capitalism, to preserve the lifestyle they built in the 90’s. With all my anecdotes and documents/photos, I will help you understand why Berlin's atmosphere is so unique nowadays and how it happened. I am passionated about Berlin’s History, specially about the time during the Wall, I have many explanations and anecdotes which I will be super happy to share with you. We will discover old/new buildings/places and their history showing you what took place before and what is now. I think it is great to meet new people and spend a nice moment with them. I am very energetic, you will be captivated during the 2h30 as I can easily feel what people want to hear about. To finish this experience, we will enjoy a drink in a nice old place and I will give you tips for the rest of your stay.
I am opening this new tour, after the success of my other tour on the Airbnb platform 'History of the beaten tracks". I am from Paris, I know Berlin for 13 years, live here for 7 years, work as an alternative tour guide for 5 years and have my own tours project for 2 years. I love to share Berlin's History and how the city evolved and it is always a pleasure to meet new people. I have a Design and Business background and I am also an artist myself, my profile is unique which create a special energy during my tours. I will be happy to share with you tips and good addresses to improve your stay

We start at the metro Bernauersstraße (U8), to get an insight of the Wall’s path, operation and context. Then we walk threw Mitte’s old area which are hidden, and not very known by the tourists. It is a lovely unique and pretty area that we will follow in direction of the center of Mitte. On our way, we will see a lots of great different places. I have many anecdotes about Berlin that you for sure wouldn't get on your own.
