Our guide, Ben, was very knowledgeable and super friendly. He made an effort to talk to everyone in the (large) group. We loved hearing the stories about the city which you wouldn't hear otherwise (especially the tree house one!). He obviously cares a great deal about his community here in Berlin, and loves sharing it with others. Thanks for the... More

Jake our tour guide from Alternative Berlin Tours was absolutely phenomenal! Although it was a cold wintry day, he gave us the most beautiful, insightful stories that inter-weaved Berlin's culture, music and history! I wouldn't have discovered these amazing places on my own. Berlin has a beautiful rich history and thanks to Jake, I am looking forward to discovering more... More

Great tour with a great guide. Declan was extremely insightful and really friendly. I would recommend this tour to anyone! I've done tours in other cities, but Berlin was the only city worth doing a walking tour in, IMO.

Spent three hours on the free tour with Ben today, he was full of insider knowledge about the Berlin street art and underground scene, which made the experience a good one despite the cold and rain. This tour definitely showed me parts of Berlin's culture I wouldn't have been able to learn about alone, and was a good morning. We... More

If you're Jake's boss, he is the best tour guide ever. For everyone else, this is an interesting and informative tour of the side of Berlin you may not get to see normally. First of all, nothing is really free. Jake explained up front that it's up to us if we felt like paying at the end, and what we... More

Spent over 4 hours on the free tour with Jake today and couldn't be happier. Extremely likeable guide, very knowledgable of both the politics, history, art and community of Berlin. From street art to art house to treehouse. A very enjoyable way to spend a few hours absorbing the real Berlin. Plus, ended up within walking distance to the Eastside... More

Jake was our tour guide. What. a. man. Good-looking with good (British) sense of humour and so much knowledge of Berlin (history etc.). He speaks about the city as if it's his lover. It's contagious. I had spent a whole week in Berlin, having trouble understanding and appreciating it. But thanks to Jake I could finally open my heart and... 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.
