Full description
Discover a different side to the city with this creepy and scary tour. If you think of Berlin at night, its turbulent nightlife, glittering variety shows and brightly lit streets might come to mind. But where there is a lot of light, there is also a lot of shadow. If you want to see behind the city's evening bustle, this creepy tour can help you bump into Berlin's shady figures.  Witches, ghosts and demons have always been drawn to Berlin, a city full of eerie, gruesome places. After meeting your tour guide, you will first ask Saint Francis to protect you from the dangers lurking in the dark. Then, it is time to set off to visit places where the most horrible things have happened, including cruel witch hunts and terrible executions. If you're lucky (or unlucky!), you might encounter the eerie 'White Woman' and other mysterious creatures of the night. See the locations where the gallows used to stand, and where some innocent souls may still be up to mischief today. As you explore Berlin, hear stories of the great catastrophes that Berlin has withstood from your guide. If you're looking for a unique and spooky experience, then this is a truly unforgettable tour!

    The older lady who did the tour was just great. She told everything great. You could tell that she enjoyed it. We can warmly recommend the tour. The scary side of Berlin, the buildings and the people was super interesting. Our big plus was that we were alone and she did it anyway. Always my pleasure.

    Very dedicated guide with a lot of knowledge. Every question could be answered. It was fun and above all very interesting (also as a Berliner!). It wasn't just scary, but rather scary. Many legends / true events from earlier times are told, but nobody jumps out of the bush and scares you.

    It was great fun. The first 2 seconds I was a bit unsure because I expected a young person to be in charge and then there was an older lady. And anyone who has ever had to go on a very long school trip knows why I worried about the evening for a moment, but everything was gone immediately. Then spent the tour with very macabre, interesting and sometimes funny anecdotes. Since everything was close by, me and my buddy went out to eat afterwards in the next town, we'll definitely do it again.
