Explore Berlin’s various counterculture movements on this private, 4.5-hour walking tour. Go beyond the typical tourist sites with an expert local guide to witness a different side of Berlin — the “real” Berlin that few visitors get to see. Visit the Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte and Friedrichshain districts. Experience the Turkish-influenced Kreuzberg neighborhood and the Caribbean vibe of the Yaam area. See a variety of creative street art, graffiti and murals — plus urban farms and organic markets — and visit the city's oldest beer garden, Prater Garten Berlin.
What to Expect
Meet the tour guide at the Fernsehturm de Berlín TV Tower near Alexanderplatz to begin this 4.5-hour walking tour of discovery. This private tour is a customized experience, so be sure to speak with the guide about any specific requests for desired attractions. 
Check out some of Berlin’s most eclectic and interesting neighborhoods.
There’s the Turkish-influenced Kreuzberg neighborhood, one of the best-known areas of Berlin. Kreuzberg has emerged from its history as one of the poorest places in Berlin to one of its cultural favorites, located in the middle of the city and famous around the world for its alternative and counterculture scene.
The Prenzlauer Berg district is one of Berlin’s most pleasant residential neighborhoods while Yaam (Young and African Arts Market) is the very embodiment of a multicultural Berlin. Then there’s Mitte, the historical heart of the city and in many ways, its true center.
There truly is something for everyone on this adventure.
Along the way through these diverse neighborhoods, see contemporary and underground art galleries, urban farms, guerilla gardens, organic markets and incredible street art, graffiti and murals. Learn how currywurst, a fried pork sausage with curry-seasoned ketchup dish, became a popular local snack. And visit Prater Garten Berlin, the city's oldest beer garden — open from April through September under the shade of chestnut trees since 1837.

Jake is the best

Amazing tour with an inside look at Berlin without hitting all the tourist spots. It’s great to get to know Berlin and it’s history through the art and counter culture of the city.

Jake was incredible

I am often skeptical about free walking tours because you never know what quality of information/experience you will get. HOWEVER, We had Jake as our guide and my god is he brilliant. So passionate about the stuff he was talking about and so knowledgable too....More

Great insider look at Berlin!

We chose this tour to get a real look at Berlin, aside from the moments and usual tourist destinations. Becca was our guide and did a fabulous job enlightening us about the current neighbors and their history. This was a private tour with my parents,...More

Informative and friendly

The guide was nice and knew his subject, we enjoyed also a coffee and cake thet together. We were only people on that day, that had to be the reason. But it was nice.
