Alternative Berlin Tour

  • English English
  • 3 hours

Discover Berlin beyond the popular monuments, and get to know how life is lived in some of the most unusual districts of the capital. This tour is a perfect compliment to the Berlin guided tour.

Itinerary

Left isolated behind the Iron Curtain for nearly half a century, and deeply scarred by the horrors of war, Berlin has over the years developed a distinctive style. It has become home to artists, squatters and non-conformists of all stripes, who came to the city in search of an alternative lifestyle.

Thus the city is full of subcultures, squats, graffiti and brutalist architecture; a rarity for a national capital and one of the world's financial centres. Today tension exists between this corporate face and the cultural underground that has always permeated the city, and the tour will explore controversies, gentrification and the urban development of the city, as well as Berlin's legendary street art spots, nightlife and life in the city today

All this comes in its historical and cultural context, under the influence of reunification following the fall of the Berlin Wall, protests, riots, and demonstrations.

Your guide too will give you tips on cultural activities, restaurants and nightlife, giving you a picture of the capital through the eyes of a native Berliner - something sure to last with you the duration of your stay, and ensure you make the most of your holiday in Berlin!
