Every year since 1987, Kreuzberg has seen protests on May 1. “Revolutionary May Day” combines Germany’s knack for organization with Berlin’s predisposition for nihilism. This is our very first tour, which we started in 2009 and have been updating ever since. We will cover:

  • the neighborhood uprising of 1987
  • 30+ years of revolutionary demonstrations
  • refugee protests at Oranienplatz
  • struggles against rising rents
  • the stories of three occupied houses
  • the wall and what it meant for West Berliners

Our tour will be meeting at Kottbusser Tor, at the corner of Admiralstraße, in front of Südblock. We will meet at 14:00 and leave by 14:10.

The tour will end two hours later next to the Schillingbrücke. We will not be using public transportation — the tour will be entirely outside.

Suggested donation is 10 euros per person, but any contribution is appreciated and none is required. You can also pick up a signed copy of the book “Revolutionary Berlin.”
