Back to the Starting Point Nollendorfplatz
Explore the inner city of Berlin (inside the S-Bahn circle) one quarter at a time according to a drawing of a four-leaved clover leaf!
The heart-shaped leaves/tours point to the four directions of the compass. Each tour starts and comes back to the center where the four
clover leaves meet. After completing all four tours you can proudly say "Ich bin ein Berliner".
The Clover-Leaf Tour South could be called RIAS: "Ride In (the) American Sector". There we are, learning about the main topics of this tour: Germania, postwar Germany, the Cold War, West Berlin as a front city. The American radio station RIAS, as a "free voice of a free world", broadcasted the ringing of the "Freedom Bell" from nearby Schöneberg Town Hall. From here, West Berlin was governed and here, J.F.Kennedy called himself a citizen of Berlin. But that is all history now. In the former Headquarters of the Allied Control Council, today, German judges do their usual business and at the Tempelhof Airport, today, you see kites rising instead of the "Candy Bombers" of the "Berlin Air-Lift". The Nazis had planned for Berlin to become the world capital city "Germania" but what is left of it? Just one "Heavy Weight Concrete Body". And life went on, developping into a very colorful life especially in the neighborhoods like Kreuzberg. No fear of being different here. This is why David Bowie chose Schöneberg to live in. "We can be heroes, just for one day".
