Organized by the Netzwerk Schaustelle Nachkriegsmoderne.

The City Landscape Safari tour takes place on the traditional Berlin bus.

To mark UNESCO World Heritage Day, the Schaustelle Nachkriegsmoderne is once again organizing the popular tour in a traditional bus to the former candidates for the Tentative List in East and West Berlin.

The historic Berlin city bus takes you through the whole city to buildings and ensembles of post-war modernism. The seven-stop tour starts at 10 a.m. at the Weberwiese tower block and then continues along Karl-Marx-Allee.

Other stops include the House of World Cultures, the Hansaviertel, the Zehlendorf forest housing estate and the Schlachtensee student village. The tour ends at 6 p.m. at the Corbusierhaus near the Olympiastadion S-Bahn station in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

The entire UNESCO World Heritage Day program can be viewed on the website of the Berlin State Monuments Office.

The guided bus tour lasts around eight hours; there is a charge of €20/reduced €15 (students). The number of seats on the bus is limited to a maximum of 30 people.

A binding registration is requested.

Urban landscape safari to church buildings of Berlin's post-war modernism

The reconstruction of the 1950s produced a large number of new religious buildings. The starting point is the only "emergency church" that was built in Berlin as part of an all-German project and then leads to examples of (West) Berlin's post-war modernism, whose monumental value is only slowly being recognized and is being called into question in many places as a result of discussions about new church uses.
