Excellent Berlin Snap Shot for the first time visitor

Highly recommended for a first timer to this evolving city as we had an orientation to the Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Alexanderplatz using our feet as well as S Bahn.

We were on the 4.5 hour Real Berlin Experience tour with Liam as our guide on Thursday, May 7. The tour was phenomenal. Liam has such a great knowledge of Berlin and did a wonderful job detailing it to us and answering all of our questions. It was fascinating to understand the differences between the East and West since the... More

We took the alternative graffiti tour, guided by Daniel. It was very interesting, and provided a great opportunity to learn some inside stuff on a very short time. we really liked the fact that Daniel was loyal to his authentic perspective on the city and it's history.

Our guide Alex picked us up at Alexanderplatz and took us on a tour of Kreuzberg, ending up in Yamm. His stories were very interesting, lots of different subjects, from personal anecdotes to a bit of history and also an interesting insight into the graffiti culture. I would definitely recommend to anyone that is tired of the typical tourist guided... More

Our guide Liam was the best- funny, interesting, and listened to every question we had. The tour itself took us from mitte to kruizberg, and focused on the street art. We were surprised to hear all the little stories of the cities, about street art and the Berlin Wall. Very recommended!

Our guide Alex, showed us around Kreuzberg, after picking us up on the meeting point on Alexanderplatz. I really liked the way he touched upon a lot of different subjects, like street art, migration, WWII..., to give us a better understanding of the neighborhood. The mix of history, street culture and personal anecdotes kept the tour light and easy going.... More

When booking this tour, we were a bit worried that it wouldn't give us enough historical information about the city, but it appealed to us because of the alternative perspective of the city - but our tour host, Imogen, gave us lots of historical information (mostly through stories from her mother, who is German), along with heaps of information about...

Thanks to Alex for opening a window to another side of Berlin. Graffiti and a uniquely strong local culture. I wouldn't have discovered without the tour. Alex's interesting stories added colour to the sites visited.

Great trip around the Berlin, without all the "boring" sightseeing, with lots of interesting stories and intriguing places. Our guide girl - Imogen was very nice and had a lot of knowledge. I will recommend it to everybody. Although it is free don't forget to give your guide nice tip. It is worth it !!! ;)

Was really interesting, seeing another part of Berlin (and the history of it) which we would have never seen exploring the city by ourselfs. Really nice guide, very helpfull, and you could see he enjoyed doing his job, telling stories about Berlin with all his enthousiasme kept our group interested. Only 'downside' is that it wasn't specified how long it... More

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.
