Alternative Berlin by Walkative!

Duration: 2h and 45min
Languages: German, English, Spanish
Quality Verified Registered on July 05, 2017

Walkative was established in 2007 by a group of young enthusiasts who also happened to be licensed tour guides. Today, we operate in 20 cities in countries across all of Europe and beyond, including France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Israel. We have already guided more than 3 million tourists, with more than 350 000 in 2023 only! Despite this growth, we stay true to our values: be local and present the history of our cities in a professional, yet entertaining way, accessible for everybody, regardless their budget. We provide service not only in big, well established places like Berlin, Paris or Krakow, but also smaller, less known, yet no less fascinating locations, like Nice, Toruń or Lublin. We cooperate with highly trained, professional guides providing both engaging tip-based and regular fixed-price tours. And most importantly - we know our cities by heart! Join us and stay Walkative!

Tour description

Let’s set aside the old and focus on the new! For the past 20 years, Berlin has been a cultural trendsetter, a home to new and creative ideas, a place where artists and performers from all around would stream to. This tour will focus on art and music, graffiti and murals, and in general on the alternative lifestyle in which Berlin specializes. Get ready to visit places, nooks and crannies where regular tourists don't usually venture. Let’s discover together the other side of Berlin – the European cultural melting pot. 


Highlights:

  • street art
  • squat life
  • Kreuzberg
  • gentrification
  • Berlin, the city of misfits


Useful information:
Attention! A daily transport ticket (AB zone) is needed for this tour!
The last point is next to YAAM Ostbahnhof

ℹ️ ⚠️ ATTENTION - booking rules

Please note that our free tours are designed for individual travelers and small private groups only. Hence, we do not accept parties of 8 or more people on regular free tours and guides have the right to deny participation to such groups. If you travel in a party of 8 or more please book a private tour in advance.


If you show up at the meeting point with the bigger group our guide will ask you for the payment (12 eur/person) before the tour or cancel your reservation on the spot. To confirm your reservation please arrive 10 minutes before starting. We can not guarantee participation when you will be late.                                  

Please note that multiply bookings (under different names) for 7 people who belong to one group will still be treated as one organized group and the guide has the right to deny participation to such parties.

This policy is implied in the best interest of our individual visitors. 

Please respect our rules.

Tour muy recomendado. Enrique ha sabido transmitir perfectamente el sentimiento de las zonas más alternativas de Berlín. Es una estupendísima forma de visitar otra parte de la ciudad.

JR was a magnificent guide: personable, informed, and informative. He brought color to already colorful area, asked questions astutely, and asked questions and offered advice that I wish we'd thought to ask! He also explained the scope of history with sensitivity, never an easy task. Cannot recommend enough for someone who wants to under Berlin or who has already seen the 'regular' tourist spots and thinks there's nothing left for them in this city. You'll have a great time, and learn of how much more you want to see and do.

El guía estupendo, nos llevó a zonas de la antigua Berlín y lo que está desapareciendo poco a poco. Profesional y con información bastante valiosa. Una gran forma de ver la esencia de Berlín.

Great tour for those who have already seen the usual highlights. An opportunity to meet people from all countries and share info but also socialize. At the end 4 of us went for a coffee and it was so pleasant.
