What You Can Expect

Kreuzberg District Tour: Food, Culture and Street Art

Enjoy a currywurst in Berlin!

Meet your guide in the center of Kreuzberg, and then set off on a stroll through the neighborhood to work up an appetite. Admire the panorama of Berlin’s skyline from Oberbaum Bridge while chatting with your guide about life as ein Berliner. Sip on a wostok – a German lemonade, and learn of quirky events in the area like the annual vegetable battle that takes place on the bridge. Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain residents meet up to pelt each other with rotten vegetables and water!

Learn about Berlin cuisine too, hearing tales of the city’s popular dishes and burgeoning street food scene that’s evident on the streets of Kreuzberg. Currywurst is a much-loved street food staple, so head to one of the locals’ favorite places to sample the hearty pork sausage topped with ketchup-like tomato sauce and curry powder.

Continue your stroll through the charming Wrangelkiez area with its little sell-everything shops (called Spätis) and and grocery shops. See where old-Berlin traditions fuse with new influences and discover the quarter's tasty hidden gems, like Berlin's oldest fish shop. Head inside and sample an age-old German snack – a rollmop – of pickled herring rolled around a gherkin.

Delve deeper into the heart of eastern Kreuzberg to discover the neighborhood’s edgier side – an area nicknamed SO36 after an old postal code. Walk past the colorful mosques, record shops, food stores and currywurst stands, and then take a look at some of the city’s best street art. Stop for photos by your own personal favorite, and admire well-known graffiti like Blu's Leviathanor and the Wicked Animals by famous urban artist Roa. Hear about the city’s burgeoning street art scene and of the international artists – such as Banksy, Romero and Pure Evil – who have all left their mark on the city.

Learn about Kreuzberg’s cosmopolitan population, and then stop in a Turkish spice shop to soak up the aromas and sample their wares. Berlin’s cuisine is influenced by its multicultural residents, so Turkish specialties are commonplace in the city. Nibble on freshly roasted nuts or dried fruits and sample one of the area's best döner kebaps!

Your tour finishes inside one of Berlin’s legendary beer halls. Relax with a beer to finish on a high note, and then bid your guide farewell.

Great way to see West Berlin. Most tours take you around the east side, but this one gave insight to the life on the west side. Great starter tour if you just arrived for the first time. You get to try the lemonade that is only sold in this area, the normal food of the locals, a treat from the candy shop and a beer at the end. Saw a lot of the graffiti and experienced a side of Berlin that we didn't see on the other tours. Highly recommend this one.

Had a fun and interesting walking tour of Kreuzberg with Manfred. It's his neighborhood so he was able to tell us all about it from a personal level. It really is a nice area with lots to see. Loved the Eastside Gallery, beautiful old bridge and evening views down the River Spree. Trying out the local food was fun, especially liked the Turkish treats! After the tour he escorted us to the S-Bahn station and saw us off. Thanks for a very enjoyable tour Manfred. Anne and Serge

Our guide Ioana was very friendly and informative. She gave an excellent insight into life in both East and West Berlin. Her knowledge of the local street art was very insightful while also enjoying a culinary feast for three hours. We enjoyed the tour so much we went back to Kreuzberg the next day.
