Ber­lin’s ad­ven­tur­ous side: shed your in­hi­bi­tions and hang on for the ride!

v BY HILDA HOY

Yes, lit­er­ally. Lux­ury life­style guide Hen­rik Tide­fjärd of Ber­li­na­gen­ten or­ga­nizes tours to pri­vate homes across the city to show you how real Ber­lin­ers live. Ber­liner artists, that is. Ev­ery tour is dif­fer­ent and de­pends on who’s in town that day, but all of them in­clude vis­its to three quirky apart­ments re­flect­ing the spirit of their re­spec­tive neigh­bor­hoods. A pos­si­ble com­bi­na­tion might in­clude a Kreuzberg painter liv­ing in a old-fash­ioned Alt­bau build­ing, an ex­per­i­men­tal pho­tog­ra­pher’s grandiose apart­ment on the Stalin-era Karl-MarxAllee boule­vard, or an art col­lec­tor’s lux­u­ri­ous con­tem­po­rary pent­house in Schöneberg’s gay vil­lage. Cu­ri­ous vis­i­tors will also have the chance to peek into their hosts’ draw­ers and to have a chat with the artist.
