Get to know the other side of Kreuzberg, away from the partying crowds and Easy-jet Armada: a place where great world inventions were made, world-famous companies born, and where sand was turned into gold and then turned into dust again.
You will stroll through a half-forgotten old residential area where ghosts of the 19th-century building boom walk hand in hand with ghosts of Nazi propaganda. You will learn the secrets of one of Berlin's most stunning parks. You will also get to know the stories of people who made Berlin one of the greatest cities on Earth.
Kreuzberg is not only about squatters, riots, parties and drugs – Kreuzberg is where history was made. And it continues to be made here today.
This audio tour is written and narrated by Beata Gontarczyk-Krampe, aka Notmsparker, the author of the Berlin History Blog “Kreuzberged” and of “Notmsparker´s Berlin Companion”, the book about everything you never even knew you wanted to know about Berlin.
