Overview

When David Bowie moved to Berlin in 1976, he found an island of Cold War angst, “cut off from its world, art and culture, dying with no hope of retribution.” This tour takes you back to the decadent 1970’s city that inspired Bowie’s classic Berlin albums Low, Heroes and Lodger. Starting at Cold War West Berlin’s decadent heart, Zoo Station, we follow Bowie’s trail to the flat he shared with Iggy Pop, the clubs they partied in and the legendary Hansa recording studios where Bowie’s music reached its creative peak.

Sites visited on this tour usually include:
  • Bahnhof Zoo
  • former Dschungel Club
  • KaDeWe
  • Potsdamer Platz
  • Hansa Studios
  • Berlin Wall
  • Topographie of Terror
  • Bowie’s former home
  • Neues Ufer café

Information

Includes:
  • Tour guide (historian, professor, doctoral student, journalist, or published author)
Excludes:
  • Food and drinks
  • Transportation to/from attractions: You will need to use public transport a few times, since the distances between some key sites would be too far to walk.  If you will not have a few days visitor's transit pass to Berlin already, we suggest that you purchase the day metro pass.  If you cannot purchase it in advance, your guide will help you purchase it at the first metro station on the tour
