In this unique city tour  "Berlin's Queer & Trans* History" the participants will dive together into the history of queer and trans* life in Berlin.

Queer and trans* activism in Berlin from the 1850s to the 2020s.


The tour is dedicated to recent history from the mid-19th century to the present day, with a focus on the Roaring Twenties and the incidents leading up to National Socialism.

The history of queer and trans* life in Berlin is unique, exciting, shocking, sad and sometimes absolutely unbelievable.

This is a unique look at the city of Berlin! Get to know the Roaring Twenties, the Nazi era and the Berlin Wall from a completely new perspective!

Travel through time - and see it all in augmented reality.

Learn about the origins of the modern LGBTIQ movement and the world's first gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans* identity categories and learn about the world's first gender reassignment surgeries.
You'll virtually enter the notorious Eldorado Club and learn what made it the most famous club in the world.
Remember the long-forgotten persecution of queer people in Nazi Germany, understand the AIDS crisis in divided Berlin, and get a glimpse of queer life in Berlin today!
The augmented reality elements of the tour create vivid access to all of these topics.
