What you'll do
Ride with me and discover Modern Berlin while learning about the history of the city through its architecture. This bike trip covers all the important spots, from Norman Foster's Reichstag to Renzo Piano building. After the destruction of Berlin in the II World War the city became a playground for modern Soviet and West architects alike, hosting some of the world's finest architecture. The jagged angles of the Jewish Museum, the Karl Marx Boulevard, 1957's International Modern Housing Exhibition, the inner "vineyards" of the Philharmonie or the Bauhaus Archive are just an example of it... and the easiest way to see it all is by bike. I will take you from East to West of the Berlin Wall to visit the best classic and modern buildings while chatting about the story and the architect behind each spot. Some of the great sites on this tour include: Peter Eisenman's Holocaust Memorial, the Netherlands Embassy designed by Rem Koolhaas, Frank Gehry's DZ Bank building, Daniel Liebskind Jewish Museum, and much, much more! Skip the tourist lines and see the real Berlin with me, a modern urban city with a soviet face in the East, and a Modern one in the West.
I come from an artist family, my grandfather was an architect and my mom an art teacher, so I grew up surrounded by blueprints and art books. After studying Graphic Design and Art History in Bogotá, Colombia, I moved in 2012 to NYC where I created a City Photography Experience which I conducted for 4 years. In 2016 I married a lovely German "Frau" and moved with her to Berlin; here I work as local Photographer for private clients and on my free time I guide Street Art and Architectural Tours. I'm a lover of the Bauhaus, Brutalism, and 50's and 60's Modernist Architecture.

Where you'll be
We'll meet at Alexander Platz, the quintessential of East German architecture where we will pick up the bikes and we'll have a talk about the history of Berlin and it's famous TV Tower. From here I will take you to see some of the Soviet blocks (that's more Moscow than Berlin). We will then cross the Berlin Wall to the West until we reach Niemeyer's house complex. We will stop for a coffee after we have visited the most iconic buildings in town.
