District of Kreuzberg
Visit Kreuzberg with us – a district known for its alternative living concepts and its multi-cultural atmosphere. When Berlin was divided by the Wall this district was at the very end of West-Berlin, with unrenovated buildings and with an increasingly insecure neighborhood. After the fall of the Wall, though, this district was back in the middle of the city and a unique urban life developed. Our guided tour takes you to the vibrant heart of this legendary quarter and will show you a piece of everyday life in Berlin.

Kreuzberg became famous for its scene of alternative life styles in the 1980s, riots on the Workers Day every year on May 1st, but also for a colorful multi-cultural neighborhood. Since Kreuzberg moved from the outskirts of the divided Berlin to the center of the city after the fall of the Wall the former alternative scene mixes with a new neighborhood of wealthy, young people who prefer a lively, urban life style and enjoy the variety of nations and cultures living in this district. Besides, the large backyards of factories have been renovated and became the preferred address of many start-up companies.
