David Bowie's Berlin - a tour of Bowie's Berlin years

I’ll be presenting you David Bowie’s Berlin. His house, his studio, his favorite bars and some super useful information you’ll find in this guide. All with addresses, maps, and photos. In the 3 years David Bowie lived in Berlin in the 70s recording the “Berlin Trilogy”, he left his mark on the city. When I say “Berlin Trilogy” I’m referring to Low (1977), Heroes (1977), and Lodger (1979).
