The tour started at Hermannplatz Neukölln, one of the most important traffic points in Neukölln`s past and present, where we met with four other people so groups are nice and small.
Anna does not need any notes when talking about Neukölln.
She knows everything by heart what is to know (no matter if in German or English by the way).
And for what is to show she has an iPad with her, that has all the great images of how Neukölln looked 100 years ago.
Or from 20 years ago, depending on what the tour members want to know about the district formerly known as Rixdorf. In Anna`s tablet I saw Neukölln and Rixdorf as I had never seen it before, a great trip through time and Neukölln space. And this said, I have been a big fan of Neukölln since moving here in 2008 and found a lot of new stuff in Anna`s stories about this amazing district I think all of us love a lot.
The tour followed this route:
Hermannplatz – Neue Welt – Karstadt – Rathaus Neukölln – Böhmisch Rixdorf – Karl-Marx-Strasse – Sonnenallee and lasted a bit more than two hours
The photos below will give you an impression of what we saw during the tour and how manifold Neukölln`s faces are.
Our Neukölln tour – as every good tour – also had some surprises, even for Anna.
One of the participants pointed out that right after the Second World War the Rathaus was temporarily situated in a house in Boddinstrasse, not far from the Rathaus Neukölln now.

If you want to know where this house is and find out more about Rixdorf`s history I totally recommend this lovely walking tour through Neukölln.
Thanks, Anna for this interesting two hours of Rixdorf and Neukölln! ❤
