Full description
Set off on a journey through time on this fascinating walking tour of the Neukölln neighborhood in Berlin. Hear about how this part of the city has developed into the multicultural hub that it is today.

With the approval of Wilhelm II, Rixdorf was renamed Neukölln in 1912. The reason for this was a simple image problem, for the city south of Berlin was the epitome of frivolous entertainment. However, the origins of Rixdorf can be traced back much further than this and provide a very different picture.

Religious faith and puritanism shaped the everyday life of the Bohemian Exulanten (Protestant refugees) who settled here alongside the German population as early as the 18th century. Explore the heart of Neukölln around Richardplatz, which still radiates a village-like atmosphere today, and embark on an exciting journey from the Middle Ages to the present day.
