Go off the tourist trail and discover just why Berlin is the trendy, vibrant, capital of cool. Your guide explains how the unification of the communist East with the capitalist West has produced a diverse and exciting new German capital. You will discover a city where gentrification is rife, alternative culture is thriving, immigration and assimilation are adding diversity and corporate culture is continually transforming the urban landscape.

Visit trendy Prenzlauer Berg and the old brewery complex 'Kulturbrauerei' with Its transformation that mirrors the metamorphosis that continues in East Berlin. Experience the exciting alternative districts of Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg. Visit the East Side Gallery and walk over the iconic Oberbaumbrücke, which connects East and West Berlin and boasts spectacular views from both sides.
The tour ends with a crescendo at the infamous Turkish Market, an outdoor bazaar on the banks of the beautiful Landwehr canal. The weekly market has grown beyond its origins of fresh produce, authentic Turkish cuisine and bolts of brightly patterned fabric, today you can find Berlin artisans, local farmers and impromptu live music too, truly a representation of city's diverse population.
