We had fun. Very entertaining and complete. Rafa guided us through graffiti areas and Berlin that is less touristy but no less interesting for that. Totally recommendable.

Alternative Berlin Guided Tour

We'll meet at 4 pm at the Brandenburg Gate for a guided tour around Berlin's alternative side.

We'll walk along the iconic Oranienburger Straße, the street where the Jewish population lived in the late 19th and early 20th century. We'll then stop at the art nouveau courtyard complex of Hackesche Höfe.

Next, we'll visit one of the most alternative and multicultural neighbourhoods of the city, Kotti. Here you'll find punk bars, hip clubs and some of the best halal restaurants. Did you know that this is the birthplace of Turkish hip hop?

The tour will continue to Kreuzberg to see the Astronaut Cosmonaut graffiti by Victor Ash. You'll be struck by its connection to the war. Then we'll discover why Oranienstraße is one of the favourite places for young people. Following on, we'll walk along the Bethaniendamm before arriving at the Baumhaus, a sustainable space in the heart of the capital.

The Kopi neighbourhood is a must on our alternative Berlin tour, where punk culture, anarchism and Marxism intermingle. We'll also go to the Yaam market to see some African food stalls and, if we're lucky, maybe catch a reggae concert.

The tour will end while admiring the more than 100 murals in the East Side Gallery.


To ensure that the tour is affordable, we'll use Berlin's public transport. To take part you'll need to have an AB-zone transport pass. If you don't have one, the guide will help you to buy one.
