Our tour guide Dave gave a great tour, very talkative and answered any questions the group had. We were immediately shown a side of Berlin that could easily slip past even those living in the city. The stories behind the graffiti and other street art found around the city was brought to life as Dave told us about the groups... More

The twilight tour on Friday with Jess was very disappointing -- not at all what was promised on the website. The guide was uninformed and disconnected from the material and from the group. First it was difficult to find the group. The guide didn't make any attempt to make herself known. It was only by chance, after starting to panic... More

I love street art and was really looking forward to this - and it didn't disappoint on the grounds that the guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable, humorous and knew how to keep the group interested. We also went back to their warehouse and had a go at designing and spray painting our own piece of street art, which was...

Great tour, I live in Berlin but as couple of my friends were visiting , so joined them for the tour. Reetta was guiding us through mitte and Kreuzberg to friedrichshain, showing graffiti, sculptures and telling lovely stories about different sites and of berlin in general. A lot of fun, and she was really helpful with everyone afterwards as well... More

Went on the graffiti tour on Friday and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Rob, was really good and presented the pieces well. Really knew his stuff. The tour ended at their workshop and we got to try some of the street art techniques for our selves which was a blast.

Did the tour with Ru yesterday. We've been to Berlin 3 times but love this city and like doing random tours that we haven't done before. He is a cool guide who knows his stuff and has lived in Berlin for a while. Saw some cool graffiti and got some good stories as well regarding the history. I am a... More

I've done street art tours all over the world -- London, Miami, Buenos Aires. The art here is fine, not overwhelming, but the tour experience is better than those in other cities for two reasons: The guides and the workshop. The walking tour of street art was well done. The guides were knowledgeable, relaxed, and engaging. You see areas of... More

Frankly Berlin is not exactly my favourite city but the Alternative Berlin tour was really the best part of this city trip for me. Our guide was Dave, and I can only applaud him. Among 20+ free walking tours I've taken in different cities, I think Dave was one of the best guides, he's a natural. Another guide that had... More

Having been in Berlin before I had knowledge of some of the typical tourist sites but Ru showed us some really interesting places I never would have found on my own and was an endless source of interesting information about Berlin!

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.
