Please also note my special architectural tours,
in honour of Hans Scharoun’s 130th birthday in 2023.
These public tours are held in German language.


Is there anything to see?

More green areas than built-up areas. The architectural design ranges from soberly strident to organic and brightly coloured.
Social hotspot, famous memorials and Berlin’s second-largest park. Plus a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an unexpectedly high density of listed buildings.
And: A museum-preserved architectural gem. Exclusive.
Discover the diversity.
Or, answering the initial question: Yes, of course!

A walk through the history of the area followed by a visit to the studio.

Duration:2.5 hours
Distance:Approx. 1,4 Km
Meeting point:Goebelplatz, near the Bus stop
(details at the end of this description)


Included at selected dates is “an exclusive visit at the highest level”: The museum-preserved studio of Hans Scharoun above the roofs of Charlottenburg-North. This is where the architect of the Berlin Philharmonie lived and worked until his death.

Newspaper & Radio

About the former studio of Hans Scharoun there are two full page german newspaper articles with me:

Also a radio feature was recorded with my
cooperation partners, the Scharoun Society and me as a guest
broadcasted for the german rbb kulturradio:

The opening hours for the “Day of the Open Monument” mentioned in the article will be changed from 2019.
Please inform yourself annually from May in the official program.

Visiting possibilities
of the former studio of Hans Scharoun

Just like the previous owner, the current owner, Deutsche Wohnen SE, has clearly spoken out in favour of preserving this architectural gem. A few years ago, Deutsche Wohnen SE entrusted me with the key management.
Throughout the year, a visit is normally reserved exclusively for trade visitors: After you have received a permit* from Deutsche Wohnen SE, I will take you upstairs.
Only on Berlin’s “Tag des offenen Denkmals” (open monument day) – every year on the second weekend in September – it is open to the public in the afternoon.
These dates are accordingly very busy and since 2019 must be regulated through pre-registration and limiting the number of visitors.
The tour described above is an authorized tour which allows you to visit the studio. Relaxed.

* To protect the studio and also the residents of the building against excessive visitor frequency, a permit is subject to certain conditions. You are welcome to ask me about this using the contact form for special topics.

Language:All public tours are held in German.
English-speaking tours are available as private tours.
Meeting point:Goebelplatz, near the Bus stop
Address:Goebelplatz, 13627 Berlin
Public transport:U7 “Halemweg” Station + 8 minutes of walking or
Bus 123, “Goebelplatz” stop
End of tour:It is almost a circular route. The tour ends only about five minutes from the starting point.
CarSharing:Rides with WeShare & ShareNow can be terminated at Siemensdamm. Best near the S-Bahn bridge, from there it is then about 8-10 minutes walk to the meeting point.
Studio:Please note that the Scharoun studio is located in a normal residential building. Please take this into consideration.
The elevator is tiny. It is highly recommended to take the staircase.
Important:Participation in the guided tours is at your own risk.
Photographs or video recordings may be taken, which may be used for publications relating to “Man with Hat Tours”.
By participating, you agree to this (legal notice HERE).
