Full description
Lose yourself in wild Kreuzberg on this walking tour. You will start at Kottbusser Tor, where everyday life meets Kreuzburg night culture. A Turkish market, Arabic restaurants and bistros, chic cafes alongside alternative clubs and bars line the square, which is divided down the middle by the famous overground rails of the U1 line.

Walking past imposing houses from the beginning of the last century, and the Sozialpalast, you will reach the really happening Oranienstraße, the heart of the former SO36 postal district, as Berlin's punk district is still known. Here there are restaurants, bars and shops with typical Kreuzberg charm, the Berlin Home for the Blind, the Museum of Objects, Comic Shops and Boutiques.

Over the Heinrich-Platz you will reach the Mariannenplatz, where the art-squat Bethanien, a former hospital, is to be found. Next-door in the Rauchhaus you will find more traces of the squatters' life of days gone by. Then walk to the Oberbaumbrücke, which symbolically links East and West Berlin and leads to the East Side Gallery.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour.

There was nothing wrong with the tour my husband and I took part in. Our tour guide introduced the selected topic to us very individually without leaving the rough range of offers. Questions and interests of the participants were answered, answered and explained. In addition to other tours that we booked, it was the most beautiful tour and that was not due to the topic, but to our guide. Under the leadership of Markus Kohl we would like to conquer another part of the city on our next stay in Berlin. Thank you very much, kind regards Beate and Michael Gittel

Perfect itinerary through Kreutzberg!

The walking tour was very enjoyable and interesting! The neighborhood has so many secrets: history, facades, interesting bars, celebrities, markets and political activism. Markus is an amazing tour guide, he had answers to all of our questions. We were a small group of 4 walking through the neighborhood for three hours. We stopped for a rest at a famous covered market in the middle to rest a bit and grabbed something to eat and drink. Very relaxed, ideal to discovered Berlin, even as a local.

A must for everyone visiting Berlin

This tour was a 'highlight' of our stay in Berlin. Markus was an excellent guide, who brought us closer to the Kreuzberg neighborhood in a very open, friendly way. His descriptions of and stories about the neighborhood were very entertaining, educational and exciting. We were able to get a glimpse of daily life outside of the stuff you usually see as a tourist.
