Saturday 31 March


On Saturday night we would like to take you on an exciting and educational trip through the "Underworlds" of Berlin (Berliner Unterwelten e. V.).

There will be two differently themed guided tours in English language. You can either go on Tour A or on Tour B. Only 50 people can go on each tour so please sign-up for one of the tours in advance!

Meeting point: 7:45pm, Brunnenstra├če 105

Please take S-Bahn line S1, S2 or S25 (northbound) from train station Friedrichstra├če to Gesundbrunnen (4 stops).

For those of us who aren't familiar with the names of the northern suburbs of Berlin, "northbound" means:
  • The S1 towards Oranienburg
  • The S2 towards Bernau
  • The S25 towards Henningsdorf
  • We recommend to you to wear or bring warm clothes as the visited underground areas are expected to be colder than outside.
  • Also, we would suggest to you to not attend the tour without having eaten before. Tours take approximately 90 minutes.

We would like to thank Wikimedia Israel for generously co-sponsoring this activity.
