When David Bowie moved to Berlin in 1976, he found an island of Cold War angst, “cut off from its world, art and culture, dying with no hope of retribution.” This tour takes you back to the decadent 1970s city that inspired Bowie’ s classic Berlin albums Low, Heroes and Lodger. Starting at Cold War West Berlin’ s decadent heart, Zoo Station, we follow Bowie’ s trail to the flat he shared with Iggy Pop, the clubs they partied in and the legendary Hansa recording studios where Bowie’ s music reached its creative peak.
