You can choose between the following thematic walking tours:
Angels and the Red Army in Berlin’s “new center”
Whether lively traffic hubs in the pre-war city, deserted wastelands along the Berlin Wall or impressive architectural backdrops – the urban spaces between Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenbur Gate play a diverse role in films. This city walking tour invites participants to trace and revisit selected films and series in the city space, including ‘Himmel über Berlin’ (‘Wings of Desire’), ‘Unorthodox’ and ‘One, Two Three’.
Cinematic strolls between the boulevards and drug excesses
Together, we will visit film locations in Berlin’s “Old West” along the main thoroughfare Kurfürstendamm and beyond. Discover film sites for movies like ‘Menschen am Sonntag’ (1930) and ‘Bourne Supremacy’ (2004), and for current series such as ‘Ku’damm 56 & 59’ (2016‒18) and ‘Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo’ (2021). This “cinematic view” will open you to entirely new perspectives on Berlin.
“Alex” the film star, with Moscow right next door
A mix of quirky life in the heart of the city, a fast-paced clash of diverse lifestyles, and the architectural features of the entire area have made Alexanderplatz into one of the most popular film locations in Berlin. The Alex is a burgeoning city square renowned for having inspired literature and the film world (‘Berlin Alexanderplatz’). Together with the stately buidlings on Karl-Marx-Allee, it has also offered impressive historicl backdrops for cinematic interpretations of the Weimar era (‘Babylon Berlin’), the Peaceful Revolution (‘Good Bye, Lenin!’) and even Moscow (‘The Queen’s Gambit’).
Film pioneers, DEFA bohemia and Berlin cinema culture
With the help of selected films and series, we invite you to discover East Berlin film locations and places of cinema culture. The Skladanowsky Brothers shot their first films between the Berlin districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, the boulevard Schönhauser Allee was itself a regular, recurring film star of the DEFA, and arthouse cinemas were integral components of neighborhood cultural life. Come with us to explore the film city Berlin and its history!
