What to expect

Go off the beaten path and feel the vibrant atmosphere of Berlin during this 4-hour guided tour. See for yourself why this city became the capital of cool and why the mayor himself memorably labeled the city 'poor but sexy'. Learn about the changes taking place in the German capital after the fall of the Wall and about a unification of the communist East with the capitalist West. During your tour, you will go beyond popular tourist trails and you will visit 4 different Berlin neighborhoods.


You will visit ­the courtyards of Mitte, full of artistic culture, consumerism and thriving IT start-ups. You can admire buildings which were quickly restored to their former glory after the fall of the Berlin Wall.


Explore popular Prenzlauer Berg, the district favored by dynamic entrepreneurs and young fashionistas. You will also visit the 'Kulturbrauerei', an old brewery complex which has been refurbished into a center for culture and the arts.


Discover the alternative districts of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg with a visit to the East Side Gallery to discuss the origins and political message of Berlin's (in)famous street art scene. You will have a chance to walk over the iconic Oberbaum bridge, which connects East and West Berlin and boasts spectacular views from both sides.
At the end of your tour, you will stop by the Turkish Market, which is an outdoor bazaar right next to the stunning Landwehr canal. You can find their artisans, local farmers, and live music which represent the city's diverse population.
