I went on the street art tour. It was a grey and rainy day which was a shame but the guide was very friendly and knowledgable. The workshop at the end was great - well worth it!

The alternative walking tour was excellent! We did this at the beginning of our time in Berlin and think it was a great start. We learnt loads about East/West Berlin culture, history, street art, music and many stories about interesting characters. Our guide Rue was cool - the time spent delivering stories and information was ideal and he was a... More

Jake took us on the 'free alternative Berlin Tour' which was fantastic. He was enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and very relaxed. We learnt about the street art, the politics and the people of Berlin - all fascinating and a very well organised tour!

This is alternative Berlin, so when you see the shady looking folks standing there with signs, those are actaully tour guides. The tour was great, very enthusiastic and nice guy. I think his name was Jake, it has been a while since I was there. Saw a ton of great things like graffiti, an art museum we never would have... More

Awesome tour around street art and genuine Berlin culture, away from the usual tourist spots. Daniel was an amazing guide, talking about the city's history, graffiti, squats and lots of others.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood 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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
