Meet the tour guide and the rest of the small group at the Oberbaum Bridge in Berlin. Then set our on foot to explore the bustling district of Kreuzberg on this walking tour. Discover the food, art, and culture of this Turkish-influenced neighborhood, one of the most popular and best-known areas in Berlin. 

Kreuzberg has emerged from its history as one of the poorest places in Berlin to one of its cultural favorites, located in the middle of the city and famous around the world for its alternative and counterculture scene. 

Moving right along, check out the panorama of Berlin’s skyline, highlighted by the iconic TV Tower, from the landmark Oberbaum Bridge above the Spree River that runs through the city. Sip on a wostok, or German lemonade, and learn about the history of this eclectic neighborhood, including some interesting tidbits involving the hurling of vegetables.

Visit a number of street-food stands, a Turkish café, and a beer hall. Enjoy four food samples, including currywurst, a fried pork sausage with curry-seasoned ketchup dish, and the German classic rollmops, a fillet of herring that’s rolled around a pickle, then marinated in brine and served as an appetizer. Find out how both became popular local snacks.  

Along the way, walk past colorful mosques, record shops, and food stores, and witness some of the city’s best street art from international favorites like Blu and urban artist ROA.

The tour ends at one of Berlin’s legendary beer halls with a free drink.

Fun tour but highly overpriced!
BZLocaLisa

A group of friends and I did this tour and were disappointed by what we got out of it for the price that we paid. We fully enjoyed the tour and our tour guide, Petra, was wonderful. But there’s absolutely no way that a currywurst with fries and a beer and a small beer tasting (3) with a kebab would’ve cost us $96 had we done it on our own. The street art and fun facts and history of Kreuzberg was a plus!

Ioana was a wonderful guide, from bringing us to great locations for food, to making sure we were in the shade on this hot day while learning about the wall art. Thank you!

3 hour walking tour with a bit of local art and a lot of food and drink stops that were enjoyable and reflective of where the locals go. Nice to be in a small tour group too.

This was a fantastic tour. The Eastside Gallery was inspiring yet sobering and walking across the main check point bridge and around Kreuzburg and sampling the food and drink was awesome. Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience the non-touristy sites...

This was a great tour. We were the only ones on the tour so it was very customized to our desires. We cut out some of the history stuff and went straight for the food. This tour helped us discover Kreuzberg as a GREAT part of Berlin. We went back ourselves the next night.

It is a great tour. However, you must be aware that you will not eat for 90-120 minutes into the tour. We were under the assumption that this is a food tour, and that you eat throughout, but eating only happens in the later portion of the tour. It is a great tour, the guide is excellent, but do not come to this tour hungry.

Very disappointing. The tour guide was not knowledgeable and seemed like he did not want to be there. We did not have Typical Berlin lemonade, it was bottled lemonade from a store. The curry stand was typical and the guide almost left without paying the owner. Half way through the tour we left. Viator is pretty good with most of their tours, this one was an exception.
