What are we going to do
Discover the real side of Berlin in the vibrant + urban soul of Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. Unique is one way to describe the fascinating neighbourhoods. They have a charm like no other, sporting an alternative, chic, and hip-style while still holding deep roots from the days of grunge, punk and current vibrant techno scene. 'Kreuzkoelln' as the locals nickname the two suburbs are also the home to world-famous street murals and the largest Turkish community outside of Turkey. There is nothing you won't discover on this tour of south Berlin.
On this tour our intimate group led by our expert foodie guide will be taken off-the-beaten path and along the backstreets to discover the local food scene, the hip start-up movement of Europe and fascinating history of these two areas.
