On this tour, Wilhelm von Humboldt shows you the places of his childhood in Alt-Tegel. You will visit the Greenwich Promenade, Tegel Harbour and Lake Tegel. As an explorer, you also have a scientific mission, of course. One of your tasks will be to measure the 'Dicke Marie' and the 'Sechserbrücke' without technical aids. But of course Wilhelm Humboldt will also support you. Of course, he will also tell you the story of his little brother, the famous explorer and discoverer Alexander von Humboldt. At the tour stops, you can expect a variety of small challenges, as well as entertaining tasks and exciting questions. For example, who knows why there is a whale in the Tegel harbour basin? The tour is a great way to get outside and discover new things with family, friends or on your own. It's as if Wilhelm Humboldt himself were showing you Tegel. The tour can be started anytime and over and over again, on site or even from home, in the browser of a smartphone. Enjoy your time in Tegel! *** Good to know *** You will receive the link to start the tour in an email directly after booking.
