My tour with Alternative Berlin Tour was easily one of the highlights of my time in Berlin. I recommend this tour if you are at all interested in exploring the culture of Berlin, or even if you've ever looked at a piece of graffiti or street art and wanted to know more about it. Personally, I had no knowledge of... More

Nicole was fantastic! Really got everyone so excited about street art and Berlin! I decided halfway through the tour that I am moving here this summer. I loved it I am so glad we got to see this side of Berlin to start our journey here!

Excellent tour with our guide Jake. Great, entertaining stories about the art scene in Berlin including his personal experiences. We kept spotting art that he had taught us about, for the rest of your trip which was ace. Pay what you like as well- we were very happy to give generously. Top stuff !

This is a MUST-DO while in Berlin! I knew I'd like the tour because I was genuinely interested in all of the street art, but myself and my 4 friends were so pleased with our experience. Our guide, Dave, made the whole thing. We thought the tour would be a bit boring by the end (it's over 3 hours) but... More

Having spent some time travelling and hitting up every 'free' walking tour we could find we knew the deal. It's not really free, unless you thought it was shocking, so be prepared to part with some cash though not undeservedly so. Alexandra was knowledgeable and passionate about the scene she was representing. A friend of ours didn't fancy it and... More

I did this tour the first day of my Berlin trip, which was definitely a great thing because this tour familiarized me with this city i knew nothing about. It was wonderful seeing things i wouldn't have seen otherwise just hanging around by myself. The guide, Alexandra, was the kindest person ever, and such an interesting guide to listen to!... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
