Berlin Half-Day Walking Tour: Gallery Scene with an Art Historian
Since the fall of the Wall in 1989 Berlin has become the artistic magnet of Europe. Not only did affordable rents attract artists to this city, but also a semi-liberal artistic climate contributed to rise of Berlin as hot spot for the arts.

Like most things in Berlin, the gallery scene is fragmented and diverse. This exclusive tour brings you to the most important gallery hubs of Berlin. Start your journey in Mitte, at the Auguststraße, where you will uncover a wealth of galleries and institutions.

From Kunst Werke, a contemporary art institution founded in the early 1990s showing a wide range of art from mixed media retrospectives to giant installations, you will walk to several smaller and more intimate galleries (depending on their current shows) in the vicinity of this institution, such as Eigen+Art and ifa Galerie. From the central drag of Mitte, you\'ll take the Berliner subway to the next stop, Potsdamer Straße. Over the past five years, this strip has gained increasing momentum, caused by an enormous wave of gallerists that moved from Mitte to the area South of the Neue Nationalgalerie.

Today, a true gallery mile includes approximately thirty galleries and project spaces scattered around an unpolished neighborhood. You will visit (again, depending on the exhibitions) renowned galleries such as Esther Schipper, Isabella Bortolozzi, Gitti Nourbakhsch, Guido Baudach, Arndt, Plan B, Tanya Leighton and Klosterfelde. Through your dialogue with an art historian familiar with the art scene, this walk aims to give you insight into the contemporary art practices within Berlin’s expanding art scene.
