THE AFRICAN QUARTER

Join us on a journey into the past. During a two-hour walk we explore the African Quarter and discover the hidden history of colonialism. You will learn about the role Otto von Bismarck and the other European statesmen played in establishing the borders on the African continent, what protection contracts were and what function human zoos had. How could the crimes of the time be justified with the help of racism and, more importantly, what needs to happen to stop legitimizing the colonial era? During our guided tour, you will get to know the area memorial in the north of the capital, which consists of a total of 22 streets and places. To join us, book your ticket quickly and easily for 25€ per person.
