”Friedrichshain is a very historical neighbourhood and it was interesting to combine that with information about art in Berlin and how it is moving, so to speak. It is definitely not the last time we are doing one of those tours.”
A guided walk around Friedrichshain, where the old East Berlin environment meets classical architecture and modern features creates a colourful neighbourhood that still manages to remain certain spots untouched by Westernisation.
The guided tours are intended for everyone and will be customized based on the interests of the unique individuals. Both small and larger groups are welcome to sign up.
Normally, we include lunch or dinner at one of the local restaurants. The total price for a guided tour and lunch/dinner does not generally exceed € 25 per person.

Art and Resistance
You can now experience guided tours with the topic of art and GDR stories in Galleri Heike Arndt Berlin – in collaboration with Jugend [widerstands] museum!
Friedrichshain has a long tradition as a place of civil resistance and disobedience to oppression and restrictions of freedom. With the opening of the permanent exhibition “Do not wait for better times”, the Hedwig-Wachenheim-Gesellschaft e.V. has made the Galiläakirche church a place where the youth resistance in the GDR is permanently documented. Especially young people are invited to grapple with the GDR history.
