About the tour

This tour will show you the most ALTERNATIVE neighbourhood in Berlin, where the post-punk rock era of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode - among others -created an alternative and counter culture atmosphere that may still be appreciated today.

A neighbourhood full of artists, students and the unemployed. Also known as the Turkish quarter, there are tons of cafés and bars with a feel of simplicity and a beauty that has become very fashionable in European cities.

The tour starts at the Oranienstraße and we will walk along the Berlin Wall, but not before seeing the magnificent graffiti of Roa and Victor Ash, Paintwork inspired by David Bowie's eternal Classic, Space Oddity.

Also you will lern the origen and evolution of Street Art and the different techniques.

On our way to the Wall we will walk around the cultural centre of Bethanien, and then during the journey of almost one kilometre of Berlin Wall, we will hear some stories about the Cold War, art and life in Kreuzberg.

Back to the neighbourhood, we will cross the Oberbaumbrücke. The most fascinating bridge in Berlin, and I will show you where the Ramones Museum is, and also one of the best hamburger restaurants in Berlin. And of course two spectacular graffiti: Gameos and the Backjump by Blu. We will then walk through the Gorkitzer Park and discover its secrets.

To finish we will See still four impressive paintworks in the way Back to the Meeting point. Walking among the canal, our lovely Paul Linke-Ufer.
