Our visitors felt some modesty when alerted to The German chancellor’s private address near Museum Island, ending close to the hardly noticed read light of 1924, a replique at Leipziger Platz.
“… What a lovely morning we spent with Susanne. A knowledgeable, informative and charming guide to a fascinating inner corner of Berlin that we certainly would not have discovered by ourselves….”
… say our New Zealanders who enjoyed Berlin’s Engelbecken in Kreuzberg: fresh Mint tea with enjoyable Turkish service and autumn sun at the www.cafe-am-engelbecken.de. For a walking tour at part of former “Luisenstädtischer Canal” along Erkelenzdamm, Segitzer Damm and similar “Damm” streets to Michaelkirchplatz, You are almost in walking distance to “Ostbahnhof” some 2 km further – for guided tours, contact berlinsights :-).
…there is a series of small pocket guides for all Berliners and Berlin visitors! “In Berlin” lets You discover Schöneberg district, the areas of “Kreuzberg 36”, “Bergmannkiez bis Urbanhafen” or “City West Savignyplatz”. All booklets are free of charge and subject to Your neighborhood interests.
