Tour description

Tour through the most ALTERNATIVE neighborhood in Berlin.

With the best scene of the punk-rock era. Here David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode , among others, created an alternative and counterculture atmosphere that is still lived in its streets today.

The tour starts at Rio -Raiser-Platz where we will talk about the transformation of Kreuzberg, from the raising of the wall to the present day.

Walking through the neighborhood you will learn about the history and evolution of graffiti until it became Street Art. We will see murals such as the Astronaut-Cosmonaut , by Victor Ash; Nature Morte, by Roa and The Pink Man , by Blue. And of course, we will get to know the 1UP and the Berlin Kids collectives, famous for their works marked by messages of protest and social criticism.

In the second part of the tour we will walk through the symbol of Berlin, East Side Gallery, the longest section of the wall in Berlin and the largest art canvas in the world. We will know the social aspects of a city divided by a wall through art.


  We will cross the Oberbaumbrücke, the most fascinating bridge in Berlin, and back into the heart of Kreuzberg, we will see three impressive murals.

Finally, I have prepared recommendations for you to continue discovering the neighborhood on your own.
