'I am Babylon, the sinner, the monster among the cities. Sodom and Gomorrah were not half so corrupt not half as miserable as me! Just walk in, gentlemen, I'm in high spirits, or rather, everything is going haywire. The Berlin nightlife, boy-boy, that's what the world has not seen yet! We used to have an army, now we have great perversities! Vice more and more! Colossal selection! Something's going on! You have to see that!” is how Klaus Mann described Berlin in the 1920s. It couldn't have been expressed more aptly. Gigantic amusement temples, the dance sensation Josephine Baker, coke and prostitution - from 1918 onwards, the most wicked nightlife in the world raged in Berlin. In the 1920s, the area around Nollendorfplatz Berlin was a place of longing for gays and lesbians and this is where your tour begins. You get a little insight into the gay and lesbian movement in Berlin in the 1920s. With the hits 'My little green cactus' or 'Beautiful Isabella' the Comedian Harmonists became world famous as the first 'boy band'. They had their first appearance in the Scala Revue, one of the most famous variety theaters in Germany. Even Marlene Dietrich performed here. There was flirting on the desk phone and dancing. Dancing came in waves in Berlin in the 1920s. On this tour you will find out which dance styles were popular today. In the 1920s, the film and cinema industry revolutionized. Suddenly there was sound and music in the film. It was brand new and everyone really wanted to go to the cinema. The cinema developed into a mass medium. Learn more about cinema history today. There was of course a lot more. Your guide gives you a little insight into the sinful, vicious Berlin of the 1920s. A tour not to be missed.
