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 West leads us through the newest part of city. While Berlin was founded as a town more than 780 years ago it has been a capital city for only 150 years. Meanwhile, Germany has had six different political systems. In 1871 when the 2nd German Empire was founded, Berlin started its career as a capital city and the "Ku-Damm" was but a sandy riding path. By the time the first World War began (1914), the villages of Schöneberg and Wilmersdorf had grown rapidly into real big towns and Charlottenburg had become the second largest and richest town of Prussia with the "Ku-Damm" made into a splendid boulevard. The so-called "New West" was born and its center was the "Gedächtniskriche" (Memorial Church). Later, after the First World War and the inflation, the "New West" was the epicenter of the "Golden Twenties" and became the "Wild West". When Josefine Baker danced here wearing nothing but her famous banana skirt the Nazis smashed her audiences and began their fight against the "Jew-Infested West". As you know, their politics finally lead to an enormous destruction of Berlin but a few places of the cultural life of the Twenties can still be seen today. After Berlin had been divided the west part was designed as a glittering front city, envied by the people of the East as the so-called "Golden West". How about today? We will see. Lietzen Lake, Charlottenburg Castle and the Tiergarten will offer us a tour through a "Relaxed West".
