Decolonial Walking Tours


A walk through the African Quarter in Berlin Wedding will give you a holistic understanding of the role Germany played during colonialism. We will walk through the neighbourhood and discover colonial continuities in public spaces. How do they shape our worldview and uphold stereotypical beliefs? 

The tour duration is approx. 2hrs and costs 25€ per person.

Meeting point is U-bhf Afrikanische Strasse/ Müllerstrasse. 

At 11am the tour takes place in German. 

At 2pm the tour takes place in English.


What is it about?

Where do the name of the streets in the African Quarter come from? What's the story of the different street names? Who were Gustav Nachtigal and Carl Peters? We would like to tackle and answer these and many more questions during our tour. Learn about the most important chapter in the German African History.


Join us on a decolonial journey of discovery through the largest cultural project in Europe. In a two-hour tour, we will introduce you to the history of the castle and the museum.

Who were the Humboldt brothers? What is the connection to colonialism? What role did missionary work play and what could future cooperation between African institutions and German museums look like?

You will find out this and much more on our tour.

Please note: According to their guidelines, the Humboldt Forum does not allow us to conduct the entire tour in the museum. However, we still want to share decolonial perspectives with you, so we will discuss the first part of the tour outside the building.

Meetingpoint is Bus stop Museumisland

” I believe that decolonisation is important because it’s a way to show and teach people about the connections between colonialism and everyday racism which helps us deconstructing old habits and thought patterns in terms of racial stereotypes and racism in general.”

“I believe we can create a better world for our future generations by educating ourselves and the people around us about history. Facing the truth might be painful but absolutely necessary in order for the world to heal.”

“I want to promote a more reflected narrative. Again, those people who were colonialised and their future generation must know everything that happened, so that colonialsm will never happen again.”
