Full description
The alternative culture of Berlin is linked to the peculiar history of the city during the Cold War. On this tour you will understand why Berlin has become the central point of the alternative and how alternative culture and urban art have been a fundamental basis for the 90s revival of the city.

Wade through the historical, economic and social changes that followed the fall of the wall (1989) up to the current phase of gentrification. The walls of the city are a canvas for “paintings” and the streets are transformed into an art gallery.

Gigantic works sprout between the buildings of the districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, small pieces of art wedged into corners, hidden in the courtyards and along the streets of the Mitte district. On the border between east and west, along the wounds of the wall, between art and politics. See the colors and stories of Berlin in the areas of urban art.
