Villenkolonie Lichterfelde West

Around the turn of the century, Berliners wanted one thing above all else: to get out of the city. The city’s moneyed residents housed themselves in the magnificent villas of this colony, among them Gustav Lilienthal, brother of the renowned flight pioneer.
Our audio walk takes you on an unusual journey through time through the Villenkolonie Lichterfelde-West: A gust of wind carries servant girl Martha Paschunke from the year 1908 into modern-day Lichterfelde. There she meets architecture student Alex, who is visiting this part of Berlin for the first time. With this audio walk you accompany these two through the colony and learn a lot about the history, architecture, and former residents.
