We meet at Zoo Palast and immediately delve into a bygone period of life in 1920's Berlin. After WW1 West Berlin became a playground for both rich and poor. Artists, WW1 veterans, ladies of the night, old dames and wealthy gentlemen with young ladies on their arm gathered here at venues such as the old Vienna cinema and Nelson theater; this was their hedonistic playground. In quaint Schoneberg we will learn about the LGBT community of the 1920's and how they fitted in to this unique place. Walking on, we enter the quaint old train station with its 1920's advertising billboards adorning the walls. Many people called West Berlin home during the Roaring 1920's. Not all of them experienced an opulent lifestyle though. World famous sculptor Kathe Kollwitz was a champion for the poor and surrounded herself in the underclass of Berlin. We will get insider access into her art collection and learn of her life here and how her art showed the hardship of the 1920's. Many artists also called KuDamm home such as Jeanne Mammen and George Grosz. We will pass by their homes on the Parisian style Savignyplatz square and learn of why both had their lives turned upside down when the Nazi's came to power. We will discuss the Russian Emigres and Jewish West Berlin and their synagogue which was sadly destroyed during the 1930's. We finish with a tea/coffee in the old quaint 1900 Cafe.
Hi I'm Stephen and am the founder of Go Running Tours Berlin and West Berlin Tours. As a certified Go Running Tours Guide I have shown many guests around the old city and East Berlin; now I want to show you the hidden gem that is West Berlin. Having lived on the West side of the city I have always wondered why this beautiful yet overlooked half of Berlin is not on every tourists radar! West Berlin was the most liberal, hedonistic place during the roaring 1920's and I'm really excited to tell you about the creative, artistic people who called this place home during this period and how their lives changed from the Nazi regime onwards.
