Hello, I'm Behzad from Iran, who never cancel the tours, even with just one guest! I am a formerly Ph.D. student in physics, but now, passionate about the history and vibes of Berlin. A city with an amazing history in each corner and a multicultural vibe. 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, that are you! Guruwalkers!

Tour description

Attention: On Thursday nights, we go to a venue for international street food.

 Kreuzberg is a district in the central part of Berlin, known for its progressive and multicultural atmosphere, and more importantly for the Street Arts and Murals.

There are a significant numbers of immigrants from all around the world, also many activists, artists, and young people that work and live in Kreuzberg, and because of them, it has a great nightlife with many bars, clubs, and many other things. (wait for more!)
Besides, it's home to many international restaurants and bars, serving food and drink of every corner of the world!
You can find many food from Middle Eastern and Asian to Italian and Mexican, as well as many Vegan options.

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 many global crisis in Kreuzberg! 

In our tour, we will walk through this district and see those historical memories as well as the cool vibe of Kreuzberg.

In our walking tour, we will visit:

  • Urbanhafen
  • Kottbusser Tor
  • Engelbecken
  • 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 walk, don't doubt and book this free walking tour!

We can also have up to 2 breaks during our tour, and you will have time to buy and consume foods and drinks.

Behzad was very knowledgeable about the area. I learned allot from him.

Kreuzberg is definitely a place worthy of a visit, and my decision to do so via a guided walking tour has definitely made the visit more structured, and educational. There are many aspects to the stories told by Behzad, and the boundaries and borders of the facets of life, and the areas where it intertwines again with other aspects, are things a tourist won't be able to determine (e.g. district boundaries). Excellent tour!

An interesting tour around a lively vibrant area in Berlin. The tour covers the history of Kreuzbeurg, the modern art scene that is visible everywhere, and good food spots and night life. Behzad pointed out sights that no short term tourist would think to look at but that are so cool once you know them. I was in a small group which made it easy to connect to the other walkers.
