Our Top Five Airbnb Berlin Experiences:
History Walk: Berlin's sex history with a sociologist. A three-hour walk with a qualified sociologist, this fascinating tour delves into the history of sexual science and sex life in Berlin. Starting in the late 19th century and going through the roaring 20s and the downfall of sexual freedom at the hand of the Nazis. The tour covers the resurrection after the war in a divided Berlin, as well as the current state today.
Craft Class: Create your own Berlin scent with a perfumer. This fun workshop lasts 120 minutes and includes a glass of cava. At the end, you get a theoretical summary of the workshop and your personal recipe if you want to repeat your perfume, and you are given your final concoction in an elegant 50ml bottle.
