Tour 6 – Berlin’s Early History – Sand Island in the Swomp
On this historical tour, we explore the foundings of Berlin. In Berlin, water is an ever-present topic and both a blessing and a curse: Built on sand and swamp in a glacial valley, the Capital’s drinking water supply from its own urban territory is guaranteed whereas at the same time the groundwater level continues to increase menacingly. What was the reason for locating the twin city of Berlin and Cölln on the swampy banks of the Spree in the 12th century? On our walking tour, we will come across the remnants of the medieval surrounding walls and parts of the baroque fortification, monastery ruins and the oldest churches of Berlin.
