From alternative underground, to urban and cosmopolitan, your guide will compare the many flavors, colors, and vibes of the East and West Berlin neighborhoods.

Stop at the Turkish neighborhoods in Kreuzberg, and visit Berlin's African and former Jewish communities. Take a peek at the city's colorful gay community, with a stop at one of Berlin's extravagant neighborhoods. Then, find out more about Berlin's hiphop and reggae scene at a delightful African beach bar and market. Listen to some amazing stories of the many different cultural movements that have taken hold in this unique city over the years, and discover the true identity of the city as you explore and experience the real Berlin.
