Our city tour begins at the Hackescher Markt (which means market place), attractive entrance to the lively and trendy area around Hackesche Höfe – a building complex with backyards full of cafés, shops, restaurants and theaters. Due to its undamaged streets from the 18th century and its typical backyards, this area is considered by many to be the actual Old Town of Berlin. After reunification this area has been discovered by young people, artists and the wild club scene and this neighborhood has become one of the trendiest nightlife, galleries and hip fashion location in the city. During our guided tour we will show you unusual galleries, crazy fashion shops, ball houses and trendy cafes. Learn more about the formerly Jewish quarter, its decline and its brilliant new rise.
