I'm a huge Depeche Mode fan and originally wanted to take the DM-tour, but there was no date set during my Berlinvisit, so I jumped on the Hansa Studio tour instead - SO WORTH IT! Great history, loads of Depeche mode related information and just...More

If you are a music aficionado, particularly keen on Bowie, Depeche Mode, U2, this is a great tour for you. Thilo's enthusiasm, knowledge and war stories make for a great tour of the Hansa Music Studios. The great hall is beautiful and has great acoustics,...More

From the moment I rang Thilo until the end of this extensive tour, he was very helpful and accommodating. Thilo was a knowledgeable tour guide full of enthusiasm and with a good sense of humour. We learnt so much about the Hansa building, it’s history...More

This tour exceeded all my expectations. Thilo told everything worth knowing about U2s connection to Berlin - especially during The Achtung periode. Also historical information on Berlin from that periode just after the Walk came down. This tour is definetely worth participating in

I agree with previous review, Philip was a very informed guide. Learnt loads about the history of Berlin and Bowie’s time in this great city- the photos gave great perspectives of Berlin in the 70s. If you don’t like standing about though, it’s not so...More

What a wonderful experience the Hansa tour with Thilo was. He prepared us by illustrating the historical, political and geographical context of the location - very different in Bowie;s time there and impossible to imagine till you see the photographic evidence. The tour itself is...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

If you do the Hansa studio tour you do get to go inside. We didn't on the Bowie tour as they were recording in the studio at that time
