Great interesting walk. Seen and heard a lot. Too bad the walk didn't end where it started, we had to walk back quite a bit. Translation “hidden backyards” is incorrect. It's about Hinter Hofe. These are courtyards in between city blocks, built about the beginning of the last century. People lived in appalling conditions. Courtyards are now often beautifully refurbished

A super nice tour through backyards, squares and parks that I would not have discovered without this tour! A lot worth knowing about their historical background, origin and use then and now. therefore very, very recommendable. Super nice city guide with time and heart, also for many questions asked by the group.

The tour itself was extremely interesting and informative, all questions that came up were answered. Susanne has a wonderful way of conveying the area and its history in an entertaining way. Unfortunately, I adjusted to the given time, so as a Berlin tourist I had to get a train in the foreseeable future. The tour itself was not nearly over after 2 hours, which I thought was a shame because I missed a lot. Maybe it would be better to extend the time frame here, then the disappointment wouldn't be so great. In addition, the description said that the tour ends back at the starting point, which was not the case. If, according to this statement, you meet there or have deposited your luggage, this is unfortunate.
