Crime and Gangster Tour through the Heart of Berlin

Let us lead you to the dark side of Berlin - to tell the tales of cold blooded killers, executions, bank robbers and eccentric inspectors.

Our meeting point will be Alexanderplatz - which is exactly where a nefarious crook picked up his criminal career. Like his role model, iconic Al Capone, he aspired to becoming a feared gang leader. On site, you will learn what became of his ambitions.

Our next destination is the Alexa department store. Before the war, this was home to „The Red Castle“, a notorious police station where ingenious Head of Homicide Ernst Gennat ruled in the 20s and 30s.

Next, we will pass by the Regional Courthouse, continue along the Spree river, the former State Mint „Alte Münze“ and end up in the historic Nikolaiviertel.

The criminal cases will bring us back to the time of the Weimarer Republic, when infamous Berlin Ringvereine ruled over the underworld. We will take a look at how tricky it wto investigate crime in a divided city and last but not least, we will also give you a taste of Berlin's recent criminal history.
