Full description

Discover the alternative side of Berlin on a walking tour through the multicultural and trendy Kreuzberg neighborhood. Learn the rich history of this area and see how different cultures collide to give Kreuzberg its unique charm. Follow your guide as they lead you on a historical walk from Platz der Luftbrücke, past the waterfall in Viktoriapark and through the residential area of western Kreuzberg. Walk by spectacular houses from the beginning of the last century and an imposing housing project referred to as the “Social Palace.” Continue past colorful Turkish markets, Arabic restaurants and bistros, and chic cafes and boutiques. See the heart of the former SO36 postal district, which is now considered Berlin's punk district. Listen and look as your guide points out the hidden treasures found along the route. Go through Heinrich-Platz and reach the Mariannenplatz where the impressive Bethanien building, a former hospital and now a public art space, is found. Next door in an area known as Rauchhaus, you will learn about Berlin's "squatters" history.

Finally, walk to the Oberbaumbrücke, which symbolically links East and West Berlin and leads to the East Side Gallery.

      This was such a wonderful tour. I've lived in Berlin for 4 years but still got discover parts of the city I've never seen before. If you're looking for a unique tour unlike other traditional landmark tours then I would highly recommend this one. I would especially recommend this one to any architecture fans! I'll be booking this tour guide again, for sure!

      We met Tobias Schwabe and went on the tour in the neighborhood. Tobias was filled with stories, historical and personal, which made the experience amazing. We got to walk around and see some unique corners and locations, with a lot of information on them. All in all, it was a great tour!
