This event has now passed.

100 Years, 12 Visions: The Evolution of Modern Beijing is the story on how Beijing has developed over the last hundred years. The tour starts at the Urban Planning Exhibition Center looking at the original shape of the city during the end of the Qing Dynasty. From the impressive miniature model in the museum you'll also gain an idea on what the city looks like today, but what came in between these two different cityscapes you'll explore during the walk. Only a couple of kilometers in to the narrow Hutong alleyways you'll be able to find traces of the Early Republic, the Cultural Revolution, the Great Leap Forward and much, much more. The tour ends at the Beijing Postcards gallery with a well deserved drink looking at maps from the Beijing Postcards collection all related to the 12 visions of the Capital that you have explored.
