Great Tour of the "Soviet Red Metropolis"
Jul 2018 • Friends
Holger is the main person who runs Berlin's Taiga, and when my brother and I got a tour last summer of the Soviet Red Metropolis, we were blown away my Holger's immense wealth of knowledge. His knowledge goes beyond just history books and he has a fascinating ability to connect things to make them more relevant to the tour. For example, as we'd walk down the street, he'd point to a funny looking building and explain how it was the location of an important Soviet inauguration and its overall relevance to the greater course of history. Because it was just the 2 of us (my brother and I) there was the occasional, rare instance when what Holger was saying wasn't immediately relevant or interesting. However, we would just let him know, or ask him a different question, and Holger would immediately understand, and immediately respond to our interests.

As for the logistics, it's a 4 hour long tour. Definitely bring water, walking shoes and whatever you need for lots of walking, and some food or cash for a quick lunch break.

I definitely recommend this tour for history nerds such as myself and my brother. Also, Holgar is perfectly bilingual (German, English... and I think even Polish if I recall correctly?) so language barrier is no issue.
