Our "Crime Scene Berlin Tour" starts at the Platz des 9.Novembers, the place where the fall of the Berlin Wall began in 1989. Here we explain the story of three tragic escape fates, which unfortunately all ended fatally here.
This tour takes us through Mauerpark deep into the heart of Prenzlauer Berg, to Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, where ErichMielke shot two policemen.
We continue towards Alexanderplatz to the Neptune Fountain where we hear the stories of the fiery death at St. Mary's Church, the Berlin courthouse arbor and an impostor of the Wende era.
We then come to the Berlin Schloßplatz where the white woman (Anna Sydow) mistress of the Elector Joachim II spat in the Berlin Stadtschloß. We are also told about the upright regicide H.L.Tschech.
We continue to Brüderstraße where we see the famous -not for everyone recognizable- Galgenhaus.
On the Fischerinsel where the old Cöllnische Rathaus, the theater of terror, used to stand, the route leads us over the Mühlendamm into the Nikolaiviertel, into the former medieval Berlin.
Here we listen to the stories of Lipold, who was said to have killed the Elector by witchcraft.
At the Molkenmarkt in the Klosterviertel we are told why the inventor of Meissen porcelain J. F. Böttger had to flee Berlin, and who the murderer, at the Red Town Hall, Wilhelm Blume was.
At one of the oldest Berlin restaurants, "Zur letzten Instanz", which is inserted in the still existing remains of the medieval Berlin city wall, the way leads us to the Rolanduferhinab, where one drowned child murderesses in the Middle Ages.
We then follow the gruesome trail of the women's murderer Carl Grossmans, the Beast of the Schlesischer Bahnhof, to the Schillingbrücke and his residence in Andreasstraße with corresponding explanations about his person.
In Singerstrasse, we learn from a brutal robbery that, despite official statements to the contrary, crime also existed in the GDR. The last stop is Straußberger Platz, which in its past was one of the darkest places in Berlin.
Our way back leads across the meanwhile hippest Berlin district the Prenzlauer Berg.
There is of course much more to discover on this tour but a bit of "crime scene" excitement should remain.
