Join this famous alternative tour of Berlin to explore its back streets, squats, and subcultures. See the capital of Germany from a different perspective as you uncover street art, hear about epic protests, and visit famed counter-culture galleries.
What to Expect
Stranded behind the Iron curtain for nearly 40 years, East Berlin developed its own, unique identity and became a magnet for non-conformists in search of an alternative lifestyle. Subcultures, squats, and graffiti art became part of Berlin’s distinct style, and with the fall of the Berlin Wall, the scene didn’t disappear: it simply moved east.
This decidedly different walking tour explores the gritty, grungy, underground aspect of the city that Berliners love! Witness the clash between corporate expansion and counter-culture, as you visit urban conflict zones, hear about protests and campaigns against gentrification, see street art and lively urban galleries and go in search of the city’s coolest neighborhoods.
You will discover a side of Berlin that even the best guidebooks are too timid to cover. Led by an enthusiastic guide, find out what makes Berlin the underground envy of other European capitals!
