Friedrichshain! Experience this truly vibrant neighbourhood of Berlin with your local guide who knows about its history as much as about the buzzing contemporary life.


  • Discover layers of Berlin's local history
  • From factories to penthouses, socialist architecture, squatted houses...
  • Experience the sizzling contemporary scene
  • Get true insider knowledge from a guide who LOVES Friedrichshain


Independent stores and restaurants, history, love of the local neighborhood, commerce, displacement, gentrification, veganism, sustainability, tradition, holding on, the legacy of squatting, the Easy Jet set, party-tourism, socialist housing, Neoclassicism, rent madness, Gründerzeit architecture, capitalism, peculiar hairstyles, peculiar people, families, urban hipsterism and much more: Friedrichshain 💛 Too hip!? Too loud?!? Too touristy?! In a well-known Berlin city magazine the gastro mile Simon Dach Straße is mentioned as one of the places one (as a Berliner?) should avoid at all costs to avoid 'puking tourists'. Should I write a letter to the editor? 🤔 Oh!... What for? Whoever is of such opinion should just stay away. Opinions are obviously polarised: Form your own, by getting to know the 'Kiez' through real insider knowledge with a guide who lives right in the middle of it all. Stations include: The 'Nord-Kiez' (Home to newly built Luxury Penthouses next to squatted Blocks) The Karl-Marx-Allee (where the biggest uprising in East Gemrnay started in 1951) The Mainzer Straße (where the biggest Police Operation in the history of the Federal Republik took place in 1990) The Boxhagener Platz (home to changing events as the week progresses) The Knorrpromenade (A street built for the rich in the middle of a gritty industrial working class district) The Simon-Dach-Straße (One of Berlin's buzzing and largest gastro Miles) The RAW Gelände (Home to a vibrant cultural and party scene) The East Side Gallery (The longest preserved piece of the Berlin Wall) The Oberbaumbrücke (The most beautiful bridge of Berlin) The Tour ends with some seasonal Gastro-Tips: Beer Garden? Restaurant? Street Food? Your guide will know where to enjoy your well-deserved rest!
