  • Explore ­the courtyards of Mitte, where the previously worn and neglected buildings were quickly restored to their former glory after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now a hub of artistic culture, consumerism and IT start-ups, these labyrinthine passages provided the breeding ground for Berlin's post-unification cultural scene.
  • Visit trendy Prenzlauer Berg, scene of a demographic upheaval that has seen an influx of well-heeled and upwardly mobile young families. We chronicle the fundamental changes that have transformed this one-time working-class district into an area favoured by dynamic entrepreneurs and young fashionistas.
  • We visit the East Side Gallery to discuss the origins and political message of Berlin's (in)famous street art scene. Walk with us over the iconic Oberbaumbrücke, which connects East and West Berlin and boasts spectacular views from both sides.
  • We visit the 'Kulturbrauerei', an old brewery complex which has been totally refurbished into a centre for culture and the arts. Its transformation mirrors the metamorphosis that continues in East Berlin.
  • The tour ends at the infamous Turkish Market, an outdoor market with artisans, farmers and live music, a representation of city's diverse population.


Trip Info

This is the tour to take if you want to get your finger on the pulse of Berlin. How did this once run-down and divided city become the capital of cool? The 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 four very different 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.
