Life on the streets follows its own rules: There is no privacy – everything is public. Inevitably, one’s perspective of the city changes when one becomes homeless and life suddenly centres around streets, parks and train stations.

With our city tours, we wish to create awareness for this different perception of Berlin, to inform about homelessness and to let persons have their say who have experienced such a situation themselves.

Please note that currently only the tour “Steppenwolf from Hauptbahnhof” is available in English for group bookings.

Our city tours are about individual perspectives. People who are frequently and happily talked about, get the chance to have their voices heard. They invite you to enter into a dialogue and see a different view of the city.
