  • Visit multiple neighbourhoods that showcase the different cultures within Berlin
  • Learn about gentrification, the life in the reunified Berlin and how it’s become a cultral melting pot
  • See sights like the East Side Gallery, Hackescher Höfe, R.A.W Gelände and works from world famous street artists

This is the tour to take if you want to put your finger on the pulse of Berlin. How did this once run-down and divided city become the capital of cool? The former mayor himself memorably labelled the city ‘poor but sexy’. We explain how the unification of the communist East with the capitalist West has produced a diverse, vibrant and exciting new German capital. If you want to get a sense of the true face of the city today, beyond the tourist trail, then come with us on a tour of multiple, unique Berlin neighbourhoods. You will discover a city where gentrification is rife, alternative culture is thriving, immigration and assimilation are adding diversity and corporate culture is continually transforming the urban landscape.

Potential sights for this tour are: the districts of Kreuzberg, Mitte, Friedrichshain, Prenzlauer Berg, the East Side Gallery, R.A.W Gelände, the courtyards of Hackerscher Markt as well as multiple murals by famous artists like Blu, the Berlin Kidz, R.O.A and Viktor Ash.

At the conclusion of your tour your guide can give you tips on how best to maximise your remaining time in Berlin.

Insider Reviews

Very insightful tour of the city!

A great tour that showed us sides of Berlin we didn’t know yet. Very interesting and insightful. Our guide Gregor was great! He was very knowledgeable and adapted the tour to our needs (we had two young kids with us in our group). Highly recommend it! Nathalie Apr. '23

Two excellent private tours

We did two private tours in two days with the wonderful Nickolai. On day one we did the Cold War tour and followed it the next day with the Berlin Today tour. Both were informative and kept two adults and two teenage boys thoroughly engrossed, interested and entertained for the entire time. Nicolai was charming and friendly and of course highly knowledgeable. We hit it off straight away and it certainly helped that we shared many world views and opinions. Highly recommended!
