    What to Expect
    Your alternative Berlin tour starts by meeting your private guide at Hackescher Markt, from where you'll visit a courtyard that contemporary artists love. Learn about the history of this spot and the meanings of the art pieces here.

    As you continue on, listen to your guide's stories about Berlin's neighborhoods, and stop by the 'Pink Man,' a graffiti piece by the artist Blu that protests the gentrification of parts of the city. Pass by the East Side Gallery, where international artists left their marks on pieces of the Berlin Wall; visit a small theater known for its 1970s flair; and experience a piece of local life as you enjoy a Club-Mate drink. Other sights include Haus Schwarzenberg, Kottbusser Tor, Gorlitzer Park, the Schlesi tower, 'Leviathan' by Blue, Oberaumbrücke, Urban Spree, RAW Tempel, and Intimes Kino.

    Your tour ends near Boxhagener Platz, where you can enjoy the urban vibes of Berlin before saying goodbye to your guide and continuing the rest of your day on your own. Feel free to ask your guide any questions, as well. By the time you part ways, you'll have gained knowledge about Berlin's street art scene, trendy areas, and how the city's alternative side is changing.
