Alternative Berlin tours are a great way to learn about the current culture of Berlin, as well as some lesser known insight into historical Berlin that you won't get on your standard city tour. Really cool to know the meaning behind the graffiti and street art you see all around the city. Dave was our guide. He was very friendly... More

Jonathan (British ex-pat) was a great tour guide. Very fun, very warm. After the tour, I couldn't stop noticing tags from different graffiti groups painted across Berlin.

I had some concern about taking a 4.5 hour walking tour on a cold, rainy November Saturday but our tour guide Nicole was sunshine and warmth incarnate. A ringer for Greta Gerwig with the bonus of an adorable Aussie accent and a quirky and sincere affect, Nicole is truly the perfect tour guide for understanding hip, progressive communities of Berlin,...

I've been on a number of pubcrawls in a number of countries, and this was far and away the best one, mainly due to the expertise of our guide, Reetta. She was able to keep a large group engaged and interested, and made sure that nobody felt left out. Her running commentary on the series of oddball pubs was entertaining... More

My friend Lucy & I had a brilliant time on this walking tour - Ru was our guide! His enthusiasm about everything Berlin and his knowledge was very inspiring. We absolutely loved the tour. Despite living in Berlin for over a year myself, I left this tour with lots of new knowledge and a new found interest for who the... More

Lucy gave an awesome and authentic look into the less seen side of Berlin - The nicest surprise was her knowledge of all the street artists!

According to the advertising, during this tour we go to non- tourisis pubs ans clubs, exclusive clubs in small groups. Our guige was a young frienly girl, she does not tell something interesting, just shows the direction. Our group was around 7-8 pepole, students travelled through Germany. We went to the worst bars in Berlin, without special conception, without history,... More

This was a highlight of the trip. We had Debbie take us on the Graffiti and Street Art tour. The walking portion was easy and we really enjoyed it. But the workshop after where we made our own art was so much fun! Definitely so this whilst in Berlin!

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
