    What to Expect
    Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then make your way to the Berliner Ensemble theater near Friedrichstraße station. Here, meet your guide by the statue of Bertolt Brecht, a German playwright whose play Baal was adapted by the BBC in 1982, starring Bowie in the title role.
    Over the next three hours, you’ll travel around Berlin, visiting sites associated with Bowie and learning about Cold War-era Berlin. Pass by crumbling sections of the Berlin Wall and buildings studded with bullet holes, and gain insight into life in the divided city during the late 1970s.
    Hear about Bowie’s attachment to his adopted dystopia of Cold War angst, and discover how it influenced his music. Stroll by the legendary Hansa Studios, where many fans believe Bowie’s music reached its creative peak, and visit Zoo Station, Potsdamer Platz, and other places of cultural significance.
    Your final stop of the tour is 155 Hauptstrasse, the apartment building in Schöneberg where Bowie and Iggy Pop once lived. See the plaque dedicated to Bowie, and then perhaps finish with a drink (own expense) at Neues Ufer, a nearby café once frequented by Bowie.

    I joined Peter for 3 hours on a cold winter afternoon, taking in various locations and sights linked to Bowie's musical evolution - which was much more intertwined with Berlin's divided history than I could ever imagine. Peter is a dedicated Bowie fan and tells...More
