Berlin Reunited and Revived! 3-Hour Alternative Tour

2. Berlin Reunited and Revived! 3-Hour Alternative Tour

Discover how the once dilapidated and divided German capital became the “poor but sexy” capital of cool. Visit 4 very different neighborhoods to see Berlin's gentrification, growing corporate culture, and thriving alternative scene. Begin with the once neglected buildings of Mitte which were quickly restored to their former glory after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Then head to Prenzlauer Berg. The artistic hub of Berlin in the 90s, Prenzlauer Berg now attracts an influx of upwardly mobile young professionals and families. Visit the Kulturbrauerei; an old brewery that has been refurbished into a center for culture and the arts, mirroring the metamorphosis that continues in East Berlin today. Head to the alternative districts of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, where left-wing residents continue to stave off attacks from corporate businesses and rent-raising landlords. Visit the East Side Gallery, a colorful section of the Berlin Wall that's now the largest open-air gallery in the world, and discuss the origins and political overtones of Berlin's famous street art scene. The tour ends with a crescendo at the infamous Turkish Market, an outdoor bazaar on the banks of the beautiful Landwehr canal. The weekly market has grown beyond its origins of fresh produce, authentic Turkish cuisine and bolts of brightly patterned fabric, today you can find Berlin artisans, local farmers and impromptu live music too, truly a representation of city's diverse population.

Berlin Neukölln-Reuterkiez, Often Called Kreuzkölln

4. Berlin Neukölln-Reuterkiez, Often Called Kreuzkölln

The Reuterkiez (often called Keruzkölln) is located in the far north of Neukölln. Its borders are the Kottbusser Damm, the Landwehrkanal and the Sonnenallee. Over recent years, this Kiez has changed significantly. Numerous cafés and restaurants have appeared and young people from all over the world have moved here.   This tour is intended to make you familiar with the roots of the Reuterkiez, with its buildings, its former social structure and the changes it has gone through. One point of focus is the person who gave the Reuterkiez its name - the German author Fritz Reuter. For many people, he would still be familiar. Fewer though, would be familiar with Jacky Spelter or the Kid's Gardern - these you will also be introduced to on the tour. After the tour, there are possibilities to relax in one of the local cafés and restaurants, or to take a walk alongside the Landwehrkanal. If you would like to head off somewhere else, the Hermannplatz U-Bahn is just a stone's throw away from the tour's ending point.

Not as strenuous as kayaking alone.... The starting point was not optimally described. Nevertheless, I would always do a sunset canoe tour at 6 p.m. An incredible experience.

Nice relaxed paddling tour in the Canadian, the two guides are super nice and tell a lot about Berlin on the tour.

Very easy and relaxing. Which we had a longer tour to see more, but we enjoyed it regardless.

Good morning. It was very nice to see Berlin from one side and the guides were great!

Nice tour on the Landwehr Canal and via lock on the Spree ..
