Wat je gaat doen

I. We begin at Neues Ufer Cafebar at Haupstrasse 157, near Kleistpark U7, to see Berlin the way David Bowie and Iggy Pop did when they lived here beside their favorite spot. I'll show how Bowie and Pop wrote songs here like "Heroes." (If 3/+ people join, I can bring my guitar to play examples.)

Bowie's albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger; and Pop's albums The Idiot and Lust for Life were recorded here in Berlin. Inspired by Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, and Nina Hagen, many cultural figures came to see the town with them. From here we take the same train about which Pop wrote "The Passenger" to where they enjoyed the nightlife.

II. Arriving to Kreuzberg, we'll see the canals Bowie wrote about "Neukolln" and the former site of The Exile where cultural figures made record deals and fell in love in the 70s and 80s.

III. After a close walk to Kottbusser Tor, we'll see where Nick Cave lived, find a scene from Wings of Desire, and then see the famous SO36 club where all performed. B-Film: Lust and Sound in West Berlin was also filmed here.

IV. Finally, we'll reach Schlesisches Tor, the epicenter of so much culture, see the Wall, The Ramones café, and today's nightlife, music, and art zon
Other things to note
Many icons created art by pushing frontiers, some thrived in the LGBTQIA+ community, and some lived quite wild. Yes, even Bowie! So please be open minded.

I'm a writer, filmmaker, and music producer from New York living three years in Berlin. Having written feature stories on music and culture for Rolling Stone, The Guardian, and The Atlantic; produced music festivals and concerts in New York, Africa, and the Middle East; and performed in rock and punk bands in the U.S., I was always eager to live in Berlin and enjoy the garden of liberated creativity.

Daniel has a great musical culture, and you can discuss many aspects with him, depending on your interests. It presents a long but interesting introduction to fully understand the changes that were taking place at that time, and why Berlin was so unique.

We truly loved Daniel and his tour; the time spent with him was the highlight of our stay in Berlin; his passion for David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Berlin music scene is authentic and revised on evidence such as books and research; his talk is warm and engaging, he has the most sensible approach to the tour themes and uses polite and appropriate language to the context; he is an amazingly sensitive person and this reflects in every part of his tour; not only we visited David Bowie’s places in Berlin, but we walked at night in Neukoln district, in places where we wouldn’t have been able to walk alone. At the end of the tour Daniel gave us the best musical advice and films references- as a professional Bowie fan I am still amazed at how good this tour has been, and I recommend Daniel storytelling to all.

Daniel is friendly and knowledgeable about the Berlin music scene. It was enjoyable to see the places Bowie and Iggy lived and hung out and also learn about other bands and influences that I was less familiar with.

Wat je mee moet nemen

An open mind! Many creative artists explored frontiers of subversion, nightlife, and sexual identity. I am describing how artists created their music, not necessarily promoting their lifestyle.

Small cash for coffee, drink, snack, if you like.
