I took the alternative real Berlin tour on my first day in Berlin. We were taken to parts of the city I would never have even thought of going too. I had researched my trip beforehand, and I am not a typical "let's see all the tourist attractions" person, so it was refreshing to take a tour that was far... More

Although in my mid 50s, I don't want to endure boring, standard tourist tours taking me around everyday places I could simply happen upon when walking around the city on my own. These tours are not only off-beat but have the added bonus of a knowledgeable guide with perfect English. Our guide, Debi, knew the history of East/West Berlin off... More

This tour was great. It was extremely educational in regards to understanding more about berlins past and present as a city itself and in regards to its people. It's not a history lesson, it's a thorough look at all Inge Berlin and what makes it such an interesting unique city. The price was extremely reasonable for the length and content... More

Nice tour, but maybe a little less as expected. Our gide 'the finnish girl' told a lot about the city and the Berliners. The Grafiti was less then expected, we didn"t see the creative places of new economy. But we learned a lot of living in this city, the mix of cultures and the effects in the city. This walk... More

This is the third time I've taken students on a graffiti tour with Alternative Berlin. This time, we worked with Ben (the German one!) who was phenomenal. He spoke flawless English, was highly energetic/entertaining and exceptionally knowledgeable.

This was probably one of the chillest and coolest things I did during my one week long stay in the oh so poor, but sexy Berlin. Great amount of information about Graffiti and history of Kreuzberg was provided. Tour started near the TV tower Ended in Freidrichshein, as some amount of public transportation was used, it is advisory to have... 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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
