Since the fall of the wall in 1989, Berlin has metamorphosed from a Cold War city bound by razor wire and concrete to a vibrant, open city reborn. Seismic change is still ongoing, especially in Europe’s ‘Silicon Valley’ - where an insatiable appetite for innovation ensures Berlin is never static. From its cutting-edge artists, electro-DJs and uber-hip creative intellectuals that trail blaze effortlessly to the bright, bold confidence of Berlin’s neon-lit cabaret bars and nightclubs - the city is constantly abuzz. Following your insightful local guide through hip districts, multicultural communities and countless creative spaces, you’ll learn how Berlin became a bastion of alternative living and what it’s like to live here today. Get off the beaten track and onto the streets as you explore this distinctive cultural landscape through the eyes of a Berliner.

 Enjoying a private, guided tour with a local will help you discover the sights that tourists so often miss in the artistic center of Kreuzberg. This former working-class area is a place of architectural contrasts and the transforming influx of vibrant immigrants have left it with a strong bohemian element. It hosts a number of great galleries and you will visit the Berlinische Galerie. Experience the humour, subtle nuances, social conventions and psyche of a place over a beer or coffee, and then jot down your guide’s version of “must do Berlin”
