You don't know anything about street art but you'd be curious to discover this phenomenon as well as the less visible side of Berlin? Then this is the tour for you! If, on the contrary, you're a graffiti aficionado then don't miss out on learning even more about underground culture, artistic dialogue and overall this amazing city that is endlessly... More

The tour was great - we learnt so much and visited places we would have never known about. Nicole was great, friendly and really enthusiastic. I would definitely recommended this tour if you want to get away from the beaten track and discover those hidden gems.

I very much recommend the Alternative Berlin Tour. Xavier is an amazing tour guide - he's very passionate about the street art, the history of Berlin, he knows great places and stories about the city. We saw Berlin trough his eyes and it was just great!

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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
