On your walk you will hear information about six historic places, among them the St.-Pauls-Kirche (St. Paul's Church), the Mitte Museum and the former well called Luisenbad.

District of Mitte: In medieval times

The origins of Berlin are hard to find nowadays. Nevertheless, there are a large number of hidden historic traces that we can discover together and which help us unveil the secrets around the founding of Berlin. Our path takes us from the medieval city wall to the ruin of the Franciscan monastery, then further into the Nikolai quarter and into the sister community of "Cölln" on the other side of the river Spree. On our way we will solve several fascinating mysteries, with the help of "Michael the Merchant" who will accompany us in search of traces left by his predecessors ...

Age: from 8 years on
Duration: approx. 3.5 hours - from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.



District of Wedding: The old Wedding district and the Panke river

Where exactly is the place of origin of the old village of Wedding? What did it look like here in the past, and who lived here? Where does the name "Wedding" come from, anyway? These are just some of the interesting questions we will answer on our Wedding tour.

Starting at Leopoldplatz, we will set out on a walk through the neighbourhood, seeking out palpable history. Illustrative pictures and stories will accompany us on an exciting journey through time in the old district of Wedding where together we will discover well-known and hidden places. Our city walk takes us past the most important street in Wedding, Müllerstrasse. A visit to a commercial office park shows us how much Wedding was shaped by industry and handcrafts. Our tour will then take us along the idyllic small river of Panke without which Wedding would not exist.
