Between snake and swan

Audio walk about life in GDR monuments.

A story about searching and finding, leaving and returning, remembering and rediscovering.

War ruins, demolition excavators and cranes dominated the cityscape when eight-year-old Andreas left Berlin with his mother because she had been offered a place at university in Moscow. The planned year turned into a life.

Andreas became Andrej and a Germanist. After 45 years he comes back to his native city and explores the places of his childhood. Below Mont Klamott, where the crane railroad once ran, people now live in listed buildings.

Andrej gets to know the most popular piece of furniture in the GDR. He meets an American who caused a stir with a Frisbee disc in Volkspark Friedrichshain. The inventor of the P2 type of prefabricated housing explains how the pass-through made its way into industrialized housing. Former Prime Minister Hans Modrow describes his life in Stalinallee and how he experienced de-Stalinization. A resident of the arcade house on the grand boulevard remembers June 1953, when she moved with the construction workers from here to the House of Ministries.

Finally, Andrej meets Mrs. Schiltzer, who, together with her husband, was awarded the contract for a large-scale encryption operation in the 1950s. And suddenly he finds what he has been looking for for so long.

The audio walk starts at Platz der Vereinten Nationen 1. You will receive your audio guide from the concierge. The tour lasts about two hours.
