Berlin, the capital of Germany, is also its largest city. The history stemming from the cobblestones and brick walls are so dense and rich it feels like around every corner there's a new museum, attraction or sight to see. At times, this can almost feel overwhelming as a traveller since there are just so many things to see and do and not enough time in the day.
But one way which I love to explore a city, especially for the first time, is through their works of art. Both historical and right up to modern day. Art teaches us about the culture of people who made it. What was important to them, what moved them, what inspired them? Even what shaped them.
Sometimes a guided tour, especially a niche one, is the perfect way to see the city in a different light while at the same time getting to know its past, present and future. coGalleries Berlin offers bespoke art tours of Berlin. They enable visitors to explore the city’s unique cultural landscape but also gives you a behind scenes look at Berlin’s trendy art scene.
coGalleries Berlin tours combines aspects of a traditional city tour with visits to private galleries and exclusive art collections. This means your guide will be able to introduce you to all the different sights of the city while also allowing your inside otherwise nonpublic spaces. Like your own personal key to the city. Here you'll meet the real artists who are creating the spectacular art of today and shaping the new face of Berlin’s art world.
Your artist in residence will tell you all about their personal journey with their art, show you pieces both in progress and on display and even let you get a peek into their creative process.
Often times art is very unapproachable for someone who isn't going to galleries all too often or who is involved in the industry. But coGalleries aims to make art accessible, it allows you to ask questions, get to know the artists themselves and learn more about what makes the Berlin art scene so exciting and dynamic. You can find out just what makes the Berlin art scene so unique compared to others around the world. Asking questions when travelling is honestly the best way to learn from the people who live there and these tours truly enable you to get that kind of unique experience.
The tours are completely customizable to each and every client. So if you're interested in street art or perhaps a sculpture, you'll be able to create a custom itinerary with only what's important to you. So many tours are cookie cutter copies of each other and the guides are nothing more than a walking Wikipedia. These tours are one-of-a-kind and nothing like you'll experience anywhere else. Walking down the streets of Berlin, the street art which can be seen hidden away in alleys or under bridges tells a certain story of the city and learning what each piece is referring to, especially as an outsider, really allows you to look at it in a different perspective.
There are so many different sculptures to be seen across Berlin and these tours are a wonderful chance to learn more about the famous sculptures which line the grand thoroughfares and also see the emerging sculptors who are making their own marks on history today.
