What's tour about

Kreuzberg is a unique area that has no internationally known historical monuments but it has a creative multi-cultural community. That's why Kreuzberg is recognized as the most HIP district of Berlin.

We will tell you how the Berliner Wall separated this area from the rest of the city. How Kreuzberg was turned into the homeland of artists, squatters and Turkish migrants, and then it became a favourite place of Berlin hipsters. How modern art galleries and the best cafes in Berlin appeared near the kebab taverns. We will show you where you can join the German punk culture, buy the best farmer foods, eat the most delicious kebab in your life and drink a glass of Riesling with locals.

Let's step off the tourist trail and explore real Berlin from the local perspective.


— Exhibition space for contemporary art in the building of the former hospital Betania (with free admission!)
— St. Michael's Church and the unique park that is situated on the place of the former canal
— Famous indoor market “Markethalle IX”
— The legendary club SO36: the place where the punk culture of Berlin was born
— The favourite vacation spot of the locals — Admiralbrücke
— and many other sights of eastern Kreuzberg!

We were happy to see this really controversial district and diversified people here. You should definitely try baklava and pizza at Admiralsbucke!
