Get to know the rest of Berlin - it also deserves your attention!


Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg, Neukölln are just 3 of the many neighbourhoods that make up the vital character of Berlin. In order to understand and really know Berlin, it is a great idea to experience these neighbourhoods. Each neighbourhood, originating from typical working class neighbourhoods of the 19th century has, according to which side of the wall they were on, developed in it's unique and distinctive way. Kreuzberg, just to give an expample, is said by some to be the coolest place in the universe because of the combination of alternative lifestyle culture and the turkish community. Neukölln has a large and growing Arabic community and Prenzlauer Berg, was and in a way still is the alternative lifestyle neighbourhood of former East Berlin.

We will visit all three on this tour using public transporation. After this experience you will have a very well rounded impression of Berlin and its day to day life.

By request, a car and driver can be hired at extra cost

A Recent Review of this tour

One of the best tour guides ever! Karin knows her city very well and it is was a pleasure to spend our day with her. I was impressed by her professionalism, her communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The tour was tailored to our requests and we came away with a really good understanding of the city, something you don't always find. I would definitely recommend Karin if you are wanting to explore the city with a charming and well informed guide, who knows where all the good cafes are!
