Three hours packed with information and insight into the different parts of the city which Bowie influenced and which influenced him. You don't have to be a super-fan to enjoy the tour...the guide's enthusiasm is infectious! Thank you, Philipp :)

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

If you do the Hansa studio tour you do get to go inside. We didn't on the Bowie tour as they were recording in the studio at that time
