Wat je gaat doen

In a 3ish hour walking tour, we will: Discover 1920’s Berlin - the 'City of Vice' - where cabaret was born and all manner of erotic desires could be sated, as well as the following Nazi 'clean up'. We will explore the center of gay culture in Berlin, and discuss the long history of gay rights in Germany going back to the mid 1800s. Learn how Berlin consistently rebuffs mainstream culture and remains a playground for street artists. Learn about the seemingly endless murals & paintings throughout the districts of Berlin. Street art remains to this day a form of protest and self-expression - art for the sake of art. We will witness these beautiful creations in their natural habitats, rather than in sterile, white-walled galleries. Berliners value non-corporate spaces - from public city parks to independent river-side bars. We'll see some of the places where they have fought gentrification and pursued post-capitalistic ideals. We will also discuss the 'squat' movement in Berlin and see where people have reclaimed unused, abandoned buildings and created unique homes for themselves and their friends.

I gained a love of performance, traveling, art, food, & all other aspects of culture through getting degrees in Art, Baking & Pastry, & Travel & Tourism, and taking part in a guerilla improv group for about 5 years. One of my favorite things to do is to talk to people about these passions.

Originally from the US, I moved to Berlin 3 1/2 years ago, after falling in love with this amazing city. Ever since, I have been exploring this great city, talking to locals, leading alternative tours, & discovering the hidden places that make city truly unique.

Our walk with Katie was an overwhelming success. Katie was a knowledgeable, engaging and passionate guide who clearly loves sharing her experiences. We definitely gained an insight about the cultural and political circumstances that have made Berlin what it is today. If you want to lean a little about Berlin’s vibe and have a few laughs along the way and of course in Germany, do it with a beer in hand, book this event. We highly recommend it!

Katie is so passionate, anarchic, conscious, aware, cool, and unique. It was so refreshing to find this off the beaten track tour, so much was learned, from basic history to very up to date and relevant information we would never have known otherwise. As an anarcho-libertarian myself I could not have found a better guide. She was even visibly moved when telling some details she must have told countless times before which shows passion and conviction. We loved her and hugged her.

I'm a first time visitor to Berlin, and I'm only here for a few days, so I wanted to get a great tour in. This is an excellent way to get to know the city's history and current state of inclusion/exclusion of outsider groups, and to learn a bit about street art and the cultures that create it. Katie is warm and welcoming, passionate about street art, and knowledgeable about the histories she shares. I had a great time.

We were lucky to have Katie all to ourselves, which meant that we received a kick arse personalised tour and we had a blast! Katie was very open and free with her knowledge and patient when we asked millions of questions and took things off track. We went places we wouldn't have known to scope out and learnt so much in such a short time. Thankyou Katie!

Katie is passionate about Berlin and how it's gritty grimy past has influenced its present state, and I learned a lot. She took us to places we would not have seen if we had taken the normal tourist routes and that's exactly what I want when visiting a new city. Highly recommended this tour if you want an off the beaten track, true story of Berlin warts and all.
