Hi, I'm Behzad from Iran, formerly Ph.D. student in physics, and currently passionate about the history and vibes of Berlin, a city with an amazing history in each corner and a multiculti culture. Why am I doing this? For more than a year, we have had a large group that goes out every week and visits a new neighborhood of the city, and we haven't visited a place twice! So I decided to share this experience and show Berlin, and all layers of it, to an even larger group of people which are you! Guruwalkers!

Tour description

Kreuzberg is a district in the central part of Berlin. It is known for its multicultural atmosphere, with large Turkish and Arab populations and significant numbers of immigrants from other parts of Europe and the world.
Kreuzberg is famous for its techno clubs and Street Arts and is also home to many international restaurants and bars, serving food and drink worldwide. You can find everything from Middle Eastern and Asian to Italian and Mexican, as well as many Vegan options. And those are the reasons this neighborhood has a strong sense of community, and it is common to see young people and artists hanging out in cafes, parks, galleries, and on street corners.
But it's not fair to describe Kreuzberg just like that because it's got a rich history too! From the beginning of the 19th century to today, you can find a trace of every global crisis in Kreuzberg!
And in our tour, we will walk through this district and see those historical monuments as well as the live vibe of the neighborhood.

In our walking tour, we will visit:

  • Urbanhafen
  • Kottbusser Tor
  • Treehouse at the wall
  • Bethanien
  • Admiralbrücke
  • and many Street Art on our way

If you are ready for a journey into the history and a fun 7 km walk, don't doubt and book this free walking tour!
We can also have 2 breaks during our tour, and you can buy food and drinks.

Excellent tour, covered everything I wanted to see and even picked out some Tapas and tea to get out of the cold mid way through. The amount of history knowledge spanning 100s of years was impressive, felt like I was getting the inside scoop on the district you’re not going to find on those “other tours”. Will be back in the spring and seeing about another tour.

Bahzad made a great tour! I've been many times in Berlin but still manage to learn so many new things. He also gave me great food recommendations. I definitely recommend this tour to everyone who wants to learn more about the Kreutzberg.
