About the tour

A tour of the most alternative neighborhood in Berlin. With the best scene of the punk-rock era. Where David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, among others, created an alternative and countercultural atmosphere, which today can still be appreciated.

A neighborhood full of artists, students and the unemployed. Also known as the Turkish quarter. With a lot of cafes, bars with a lot of simplicity and a beauty that has become very fashionable in European cities.

The tour starts at the Oranienstr. We will walk along the wall, but not before seeing the magnificent graffiti of Roa and Victor Ash. On the way to the wall we will walk around Bethanien, and during the journey of almost a kilometer of wall we will hear some stories about the cold war, art and life in Kreuzberg.

Back to the neighborhood, we will cross the Oberbaumbrücke. The most fascinating bridge in Berlin. I will show you where the Ramones museum is and one of the best hamburger restaurants in Berlin. And of course two spectacular graffiti, Gameos and the backjump by Blu. We will walk through the Gorkitzer park and discover its secrets. We will see Victor Ash's well-known "Astronaut" graffiti, inspired by David Bowie's eternal song, Space Oddity.

We will end up having a beer in the most emblematic bar of the neighborhood, Das Hotel Bar. Magical for its atmosphere combining flowers, candles, good music and drinks. Of course, I will indicate many bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.
