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.

I cant say enough about how great...

I cant say enough about how great this tour was. We were taken into the back streets and neighborhoods of Berlin on both the east and west sides. Took us away from the typical tourist destinations to give us the true feeling of life in Berlin today as well as explaining the history. Our guide, Kalum, was a wealth of knowledge for both the history and modern day. We have taken many Viator tours and have to say this is one of our best.

Jason was a great guide and a really laid back, interesting guy. He took us places we never would have found on our own and had a great knowledge of history. The tour was much more interactive than most tours which kept it interesting. He also gave us good suggestions for places to go on our own. Taking public transportation to the different neighborhoods was a great intro for us. I would highly recommend this tour and I would go early into your trip.
