Meeting point: Goethe-Institut Athen
Guided tour leader: Mary Adamopoulou
Have you ever wondered what is common between the first apartment building in Athens and which building hosted the first radius generator Redken? Do you know the elegant building in the center of Athens the famous Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen referred to and which one considered as an example for the facade of Hadrian's Library?
What is the link between the biggest private building of Athens, the villa in Kifisia named after the first Greek newspaper of New York, and Omonoia Square?
True, "written" on the walls of Athens and its suburbs stories. And yet, unknown to its daily passengers and its visitors, who usually stay in the emblematic attractions the travel guides suggest. Which is the yarn connecting them? Their relation with Germany.
Valueable stories not only for the architects, but also for those who are interested in economy, politics, diplomacy, science or for those who are still fascinated by the great loves. Stories that can turn a walk in Athens into a "dive" in the past using just an application on their mobile phone: the Deutsche Spuren / German Tracks of the Goethe-Institut.
