Great tour we enjoyed it a lot

Stefan was a great host and spent a lot of time with us. He showed us the city in a new way. I highly recommend the tour with him.

Went on the free alternative tour on my last full day in the city and it was a fantastic way to see the gritty, arty, and "for reals" part of Berlin, which is a great alternative to the classical and historical styles of the typical touristy spots. I chose the 3pm tour with Alex as our guide. He was amiable... More

Even though it was my last day in Berlin and having seen many places I wrote on my list, I decided to take this tour before leaving. I have been to some tours before, which were also very nice for new beginners of the city, but this tour was completely different since it contained lot more info about local life... More

Rob was awesome. We had the best time! The tour was interesting but the best part was the workshop at the end. Definitely a fun time!

I went on this excellent pub crawl and had a great time. My travelling partner was feeling tired and had decided to stay in for the night as it was winter and a tad chilly outside. I was not disappointed, we took in a flower power bar, a gothic rock bar where Marilyn Manson and Rammstein used to hang out,... More

My girlfriend and I did this tour on our second day in Berlin. It really enriched our experience of Berlin and made us feel at home in the city. We were brought around Kreuzberg and advised where to eat and to go. The artwork we were shown was amazing as well as the culture surrounding it which Alex, our tour... More

If you are looking for a laid back, informative yet cool tour of Berlin, this is the one! By far the best tour I have been on and Callum was exceptionally nice, friendly and very informative. I highly recommend doing the tour with him!

We took the alternative tour and Imogen was our guide. She was really sweet and told us how Berlin is changing and how its history affected the way germans think and act. We took our two year old baby with us in a stroller so we had to use a lot of stairs going in and out the trains but... More

After two days of seeing the usual Berlin sights, this tour was a very fun alternative. Rob was our guide and his passion for the street art scene was obvious and well communicated. I would have liked to have seen a little more of the art works, but having time to make our own art was fun too. Be aware,... More

We opted for the free walking Alternative tour and I can not pass comment on any of their paid tours. However the clue is in the title and I guess nothing is for free. The idea that its tip based and that you pay what you can afford kind of gives it away. Our guide Alex was a nice woman... 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.
