Went on the English alternative Berlin walk in medium to pouring rain on April 12 with Leene sic as tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable with first hand information about various alternative and independent sites for art and innovative housing projects around east Berlin. Her stories were peppered with anecdotes and history with a definite indie and start up artistic bent which brought life to the places we visited. One word of caution is that although there is lots of street art, this is not the total focus there's much information on the development of the real estate scene in Berlin as well as how Berlin is changing. The tour is directed toward young people who will come away with clubs and locations to visit and party at and eventhough we were thoroughly soaked by the end of 3 hours, she had lost very few members of the group due to her enthusiasm and expertise.
