Explore a place with a vast history, from the expressionists who painted in imaginatively furnished roof studios, to the illustrious crew of German-speaking authors who moved here during the late 1960s and 70s and drank and discussed German society in literary pubs and clubs. Visit the market where people of the past and present shopped, at Breslauer Platz. Hear about the “Friedenauer Rad” and the establishment of the first boy group, the Comedian Harmonists.
