Berlin: In and Around Alexanderplatz Walking Audio Tour by VoiceMap
Alexanderplatz has a mythical status in Berlin history, from its seedy 1920s portrayal in Alfred Döblin's "Berlin Alexanderplatz" novel to the massive demonstration that took place there just before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. This tour introduces you to "Alex" and its surroundings, its history as a flashpoint between Communists and Fascists in the 1920s and 30s, its halting reconstruction after World War II, and the current plans for reinventing it. The tour starts near the Volksbühne theatre and winds its way to the Marx-Engels Forum next to Berlin's beautiful cathedral, providing listeners with a taste of the city's unique history as told through its architecture and public art works. The tour starts in front of the "Junge Welt" newspaper building at Torstrasse 6, near Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse.
The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
