Nikolaiviertel - The story of Berlin in stories and tales
St Marys Church
Did you know that Berlin was “born” on two islands?

About 200 years ago there were two sister cities named Berlin and Cölln.
A lot was going on there because fishermen, butchers, textile weavers and other merchants were offering their goods on the markets.

New houses are here today, some were rebuilt to resemble historic originals.

St Nicholas Church is located in Berlin.
It was named after St Nicholas the patron saint of merchants and sailors.

After all, Berlin and Cölln were founded as merchant cities.

Kurfürstendamm – from bridle path to shopping avenue
Geschichten Originally Kurfürstendamm was a mere passageway outside the city gates of Berlin, leading through swampy terrain. The Elector Joachim II. would take this path to ride from Berlin to his hunting lodge in the Grunewald forest. This is how the name "Kurfürstendamm" was coined – it was a "Damm" (road) for the "Kurfürst" (Elector).

When, in 1883, Kurfürstendamm was converted into a splendid avenue, it became a favourite place for leisurely Sunday afternoon strolls. Soon artists flocked to the newly established cafés along the Ku’damm (that’s the popular abbreviation of Kurfürstendamm).

Over time, shops, theatres and cinemas appeared, many under Jewish ownership. 1912 saw the opening of the first synagogue in the outskirts of Berlin.
Gedächtniskirche Events such as the November pogrom of 1938, World War II, the separation and reunification of Berlin, all worked to change both the appearance and the significance of Kurfürstendamm time and again.
During the course of this tour we will also pay a visit to the Memorial Church on Breitscheidplatz.

Did you know that this bombed out church nearly fell victim to the wreckers? But Berliners so much loved the “hollow tooth” that today still, you can marvel at the old ruin next to the new, modern church.

A lot happened at the Brandenburg Gate
The Brandenburg Gate didn’t always look like it does today. When it was first erected in 1734 it was much smaller. It was one of 14 gates in the wall that surrounded Berlin at the time.
At these gates, anybody entering or leaving Berlin had to submit to a check.

The Brandenburg Gate has existed in its present form since 1791, even though it was destroyed in the meantime and had to be rebuilt.
Brandenburger Tor
Brandenburg Gate In times of peace as in times of war, there was always something going on at the Brandenburg Gate. Up to the present day celebrations as well as demonstrations take place here. Surely you’ve seen images of this important Berlin landmark many times before.

Have a look in your wallet, you’ll even find it on German cent coins!
As we happen to be in this part of Berlin, let’s walk “on the wall” and cross from “East” to “West” with no more border controls in sight. Do you know already what this means? I’m looking forward to your questions.
At the river Spree you can get a little rest and then you will have to decide whether giants exist or not. Finally we will have a look at the Reichstag (the German parliament building) from the outside.
You only realize just how big it really is, once you stand right in front of it!

Checkpoint Charlie
Just imagine waking up one morning and being told, you’re no longer allowed to cross the road in front of your house! Something like that happened on August 13th 1961 in Berlin.
Berlin Wall
“As of midnight tonight, the border between West and East Berlin is closed.” This is the radio message informing Berliners they were no longer allowed into the other part of the city. At first, the border was secured with barbed wire. Then a tall wall was built all around West Berlin, cutting right though the centre of the city.
That’s how West Berlin was turned into an “island” that one couldn’t easily leave.
Checkpoint “C” in Friedrichstrasse is better known as Checkpoint Charlie.
Neither Berliners nor West Germans were allowed to use this checkpoint. It was reserved for members of the Allied Forces, soldiers of the countries that been victorious in the Second World War. In October 1961 things got dangerous: there was a showdown between Soviet and American tanks at Checkpoint Charlie! What a relief, that both sides could settle the matter peacefully!
Checkpoint Charlie


The Berlin Wall divided the city between 1961 and 1989. Why it was built, what it was like to live with it, things people thought up to flee to the West, even though it meant risking their lives, why the border was opened on 9th November – this and more I would like to show and tell you about.

On this tour we will also visit the Museum of Communications, where some really old robots will greet you and invite you to play ball with them.

There are many interesting things to explore in this beautiful building and you will also learn a considerable bit of the history of the postal service.
