Full description
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.
