Team up with Mathilde and make your way through the history and present of Berlin to find Ben!

Berlin Mitte
The very roots of Berlin...

The walking tour “When is Ben” takes you through Berlin Mitte – the epi-centre of the city of Berlin. Centuries of history can be seen here right next to each other: A 800 year old church, right beside a townhall built under the emporer's rule, next to a TV tower, built as a landmark of modern society by the East-German government during Germany's division.

...in the turning tides of German History

Berlin-Mitte has seen it all: From a typical German old-town, to emperors' grandiosity, to the total collapse of civilized society in World War II to a liberal democracy - Germany's history is condensed in Berlin's centre like in no other place.

However, not all is in the past: Our walking tour leads you to the magnificent spots as well as to the hidden corners right in the heart of Berlin. Townhall, TV-tower, Berlin palace, hidden courtyards - the self guided tour is right at the pulse of Berlin.

Your tour starts here:

Rathausstraße 15
10178 Berlin

(end of the tour: Hackescher Markt)
