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.

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 for an English speaking group you will need a translator.
In 2012, Dieter came from Thuringia to Berlin without an apartment and a roof over his head. On his tour he talks about his daily expeditions with other homeless people along Kantstraße.
Uwe only intended on spending a few days on the streets following reunification. In the end, this turned out to be seven years. On his tour he reports about this time.
Klaus lived on the streets and lived from collecting bottles for nine years. On his tour, he explains where he slept and how he survived.
