We are Ismael and Alexis. ViuBerlin offers you the opportunity to get to know Berlin not only from a tourist point of view, but also to discover the history of the city, which has been the protagonist of the most relevant events of the last century.

About the Tour

Tour through the most ALTERNATIVE neighbourhood of Berlin. 


With the best scene of the  punk-rock era. There were David Bowie, Iggy Pop, NickCave, Depeche Mode, among  others, they created an alternative and counterculture atmosphere that  nowadays is still present in its streets. 


The tour will start at the Heinrichplatz, where I will talk about the transformation of Kreuzberg, from the construction of the  Berlin wall until to the present day.


We will tour as well the neighbourhood and I will explain the history of the evolution of graffiti until it became Street Art. We will see murals such as the Astronaut-Cosmonaut, by Victor Ash; Nature Morte of Roa and The Pink Man of Blue. And of course, we will meet the group 1UP and the Berlin Kids, that are famous for their work of art that marked by messages of protest and social criticism..


In the second part of the tour we will walk through one of the most representative symbols of Berlin, the longest fragment of the Berlin Wall: East Side Gallery, where we will talk about some of the most iconic works represented there.
 

Finally, we will cross the Oberbaum Bridge (Oberbaumbrücke), the most fascinating bridge in Berlin and, on our way back to the heart of Kreuzberg, we will see three more impressive murals.


To finish, I have prepared recommendations for you to continue discovering the neighbourhood on your own.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Outside the entrance of the café called "Taqueria Florian "
