Our new Segway tour - quick, rich in history and exciting
The name "Scheunenviertel" derives from several barns (Scheunen) erected here outside the city walls in 1670 by order of Elector Frederick William of Brandenburg. The barns were used to store hay in connection to a large cattle market at nearby Alexanderplatz. In 1737 King Frederick William I of Prussia required Berlin Jews to settle here. Until the Second World War it was regarded as a slum district and had a substantial Jewish population with a high proportion of migrants from Eastern Europe.
Now the unique charm of the “Scheunenviertel” attracts locals and tourists. The art, culture, fashion and gourmet scene is wide. In addition, there are a lot of trendy boutiques, bars and still a red-light district. There is to discover infinitely things to Berlin's history, architecture, art and commerce.
On the Segway tour we drive through this 350 year old part of Berlin, partly preserved Neighborhood, see former infamous Berlin backyards - now mostly art and gallery courtyards, niches for start-ups and in-gastronomy - a ballroom from the 19th century, emerging fashion labels, a new theater world and people from all over the world.
Here you will experience Jewish life in Berlin with its breakages since 1671 to today.
