Berlin: David Bowie History Tour

1. Berlin: David Bowie History Tour

When David Bowie moved to Berlin in 1976, he found an island of Cold War angst. This 3-hour tour takes you back to the decadent 1970s in the city that inspired Bowie’s classic Berlin albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger. Starting at the decadent heart of Cold War West Berlin, at Zoo Station, you’ll follow the artist’s trail to the flat he shared with Iggy Pop, to the clubs where they partied, and to the legendary Hansa recording studios, where Bowie’s music reached its creative peak in Berlin. Your tour takes in a variety of sites, including Bahnhof Zoo, the former Dschungel Club, KaDeWe, Potsdamer Platz, Hansa Studios, the Berlin Wall, Topographie of Terror, Bowie’s former home, and the Neues Ufer Café.

Really informative tour that showed us many interesting places visited by David Bowie during his time in Berlin and about the general history of the city in general. We covered a lot of ground by walking, bus and subway which stood us in good stead for having confidence to travel on our own in the days after the tour. Martin was friendly, professional and interesting and made our tour one of our highlights in Berlin.

Very knowledgeable informative and enjoyable guide tour. Martin showed us many interesting places where David Bowie visited during his residential time in Berlin and about the general history of the city. Highly recommended to anyone who is a big David Bowie fan.
