This tour has been the highlight to our 4 week European holiday. A small group of 10. Not for the faint hearted, you get to see some different sides of Berlin that lay hidden to most. I won't ruin the surprise, as the guide said. But there is some great street art and ruins to see.

Good exposure to several neighborhoods. Very knowledgeable, nice and organized guide ( Alex), Good mixture of history, culture, daily life. One comment: Alex spoke too fast for people whose mother tonge is not English (the majority in our group).

Despite a rainy day, spirits were not damped as we headed out. With Alex as our guide, someone who has lived in Kreuzberg, it as an unbelievable 3 hours. After seeing castle after castle and church after church, it was refreshing to get a new perspective on Germany, the current youth culture, and there was no better way to do... More

When I was in Berlin last week, a friend I met in my hostel recommended I'd come on this "alternative tour" with him. It sounded really cool and so next morning I went with him to Alexanderplatz where we met with our tour-guide, Jason. Jason took us on the free walking tour throughout Berlin, where we saw the most amazing... More

... take an alternative tour to taste some Real Berlin. We had the luck being guided by Imogen - a great storyteller.. She took us on journey through time and space. Almost 5 hours passed like a few minutes. During this tour many important issues were touched - turbulent history of Berlin and search for alternative ways of life. And... More

You should do this tour if you're interested in putting your finger on the pulse of one of the most complex and engaging cities on Earth. Or you could just do the usual bright, shiny tours that don't really look too far under the veneer. Our guide Jake took us on a journey that introduced us to the people of... More

We took this tour on June 26th. Our Australian guide Imogen is studying in the city and was highly informative and knowledgeable. Part way through the tour she revealed her German ancestry, and talked about her grandparents' gripping experiences of the Berlin wall, the choices they made, and the risks that came with those choices. The tour is a great... More

Big thank you to Alex for making this tour both interesting and informative! We wouldn't have learnt anywhere near as much about berlin subcultures or had as much of an appreciation as we do now. I loved learning about the graffiti culture and Alex's knowledge about kreuzberg was incredible. The tour goes for 3 hours, running at a really good... More

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
