I never usually go for thing's like this but as I was travelling solo for the first time I thought I'd give it a go. There were plenty of other solo travellers and everyone seemed really chilled out and up for having a good time. The guides were also great. Highly recommended. The club at the end was great fun.

We had an amazing time in the Real Berlin tour during Easter. It was great to see off the beaten track neighborhoods, and very interesting graffiti all around. The guide Imogene was really knowledgeable and very friendly. By the way, do take the leaflet with places to go they hand you in the end of the tour! We tried a... More

There's loads of graffiti in Berlin, but in all honestly is ugly with tags being the most common. If you want to see more than tags, you'll need this tour. Ben was our guide and he took us to another side of Berlin, where you get to see a few good graffiti works. At the end of it, you get... More

Alternative Berlin Tours was a great way to look at the city. The street art tour was pretty sweet. We looked at Berlin in a whole new light. Rob, our guide was fantastic, knowledgeable and funny. The workshop at the end was my favourite. I highly recommend this tour!

Went on the free alternative walking tour while I was in Berlin on vacation and it was awesome. Our tour guide Rich had this magnetic personality, so much energy, so much fun, entertaining, and engaging... The tour was a great experience and really gave you some insight into the ever present sub-cultures of Berlin. If you like to go off... More

We did 2 very different tours with this company - the 'free' (ie tips only) walking tour around Kreuzberg and the pub crawl. The first one was very interesting and showed us some things we wouldn't have otherwise seen. We were quite happy to do the standard tourist things ourselves so this was exactly what we were hoping for. Mostly... More

If you want to know why Berlin is what it is - go on Imogen's tour! It is a very entertaining and lively walk through Graffiti-Berlin. She is bringing the art into context with Berlin history and her very accurate observations of German society. She is not rushing and gives time to discover interesting places on your own! It is...

Took the Art Scene tour with Ben - he is from New Zealand and the entire tour was in English. He really gave a great tour with lots of insight, and we scouted all over town on this 4.5 hour tour which is certainly worth more than the 15 Euro charge. At the end, the group of 22 (he keeps... More

This tour is very interesting as it shows all the graffiti and street art the we usually don't pay attention to. I just thought it was a bit too long though.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

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.
