Romy - a life between Paris and Berlin


Admired and revered by the French, the attitude of the Germans towards this 20th century icon is more controversial, ranging from admiration and adulation to feelings of betrayal, not just for having eventually deserted Germany, but for having stripped herself off her detested Sissi-image, an image the Germans loved her for and an image who represented post-war West-Germany like no other, making it so easy and comfortable for them to forget what they had done just then years earlier. Something in which Romy's mother was, if not complicit, at least not entirely without responsibility: after all, she was one of Hitler's favorite actresses and his neighbour in Berchtesgaden.

A fact Romy felt - understandably yet needlessly - guilty for all her life. This tour traces her life in Berlin, lived primarily from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s.

Itinerary

Meeting up at Europa Center (which she opened), we'll walk over to the Savoy Hotel, where she loved to stay in.

Then, we'll take the S-Bahn to Grunewald, from where we'll walk to Romy's former home on Winklerstrasse 22.

Next, we'll take a stroll down to Lake Diana, where Romy spent a lot of time with her newly born son, David, who later so tragically died. Lastly, we'll walk up to the Schlosshotel Grunewald (back then called Hotel Gerhus) where a coffee/ tea/ or lunch break is optional.

The nearby S-Bahn will take us back to the centre of town in just a few stops.
