Very interesting tour around places not listed in traditional tourist guides. Even if I had visited some of them earlier thanks to my friends and because of my interests there was still much new to get to know. Daniel knows really a lot about the street art community in Berlin, told us many interesting stories about particular artists, explained contexts... More

We read that this was an excellent way to see Berlin, and boy did it live up to expectations. Daniel was a very knowledgable and passionate tour guide and even gave us a great dinner recommendation on the way out. I highly recommend doing this if you ever find yourself in the city. A++

I did the free street art tour with Rich. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city! The street art in Berlin is absolutely amazing and has a rich culture of its own. Our guide, Rich, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable- not just about street art, but the city as a whole. I really appreciated that he took... More

This was honestly the best thing I did in Berlin. It took you round parts of Berlin that you wouldn't otherwise see and explained the history and culture behind street art which is actually very interesting (I didn't think it was at first). Also explained some of the history about the Berlin wall too. I learnt more in this tour... More

Literally the best thing I did in Berlin. Bored of walking tours and history of buildings by the final leg of my inter rail trip I scale off the traditional tour in place of this and was not disappointed. Great way to see Berlin more from a locals point of view and think about things in a different perspective. The... More

Most cities around Europe offer the traditional tourist tour of all of the major attractions. The alternative tour does so much more - shows you what Berlin is really about. Some incredible attractions are very informative all round plus Rich is a great tour guide. Cannot recommend enough. The tour takes you around Berlin that most people don't see and... More

What a great tour! It was really nice to be taken away from the main tourist sites and learn the perspective of a young artist or similar type in Berlin. My guide Alex was more like a friend to us than a guide and had heaps of great stories to tell. It was cool to take exploring breaks, something I've... More

Great alternative walking tour of Kreuzberg, Prenzelauer Berg and Mitte. Our guide, Imogen, was very natural and really knew her stuff... even where to eat for lunch. Only drawback was the weather but that could not have been helped.

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.
