Discover Architecture and City Tours with GoArt!
Berlin’s unparalleled dynamic can be explained by the urban development since the Fall of the Wall, the uses of formerly discarded architectural fallows as well as buildings by international star architects, who filled these places with new life and unrestrained energy. Go on architecture tour with GoArt!
This mixture of old and new is the secret of the capital: once unexploited, partly historically coined places have been transformed into cultural meeting points and lively urban spots. Ask for architectural guided tours, expert talks with focus on urban development and landscape architecture, trips with emphasis on sustainability and green design as well as design-workshops.

Architecture Tours for Ambitious Travelers

Visit Hackescher Markt in the vivid Barn District and stroll along Unter den Linden with its Prussian monuments facing the impressive Museum Island. You will experience the atmosphere on Gendarmenmarkt, which is considered to be the most beautiful historic square in Berlin. Moreover, we will visit Paris Square with one of Berlin’s most known landmarks: the Brandenburg Gate. The new governmental district is located right next to it. For a fresh take on international contemporary architecture in Berlin Mitte join us to get to know Potsdamer Platz. Focus of this tour is Berlin’s past – from the Prussian times up to recent developments.
Past and Present
Our Jewish Berlin tours offer a variety of options exploring Berlin’s Jewish past and present. The classic Jewish tour includes the most important spots in the Jewish quarter, places of remembrance including the old Jewish cemetery, the New Synagogue, the former Jewish Girl School, the Holocaust Memorial or the Bebelplatz (the place of the Nazi book burning). Additionally, we will visit the countryside estate of the famous Liebermann artist family in the outskirts of Berlin. The Haus of the Wannseekonferenz where the so called ‘Final Solution of the Jewish question’ had been declared – after which the tragic Nazi terror took its course – is in the same neighborhood. GoArt! contextualizes how Berlin changed after the fall of the Wall, what happened to architecture related to Berlin’s Jewish history and how contemporary culture continues to build bridges between the tragic past and the present.
Neues Bauen and Modernity in Berlin
