A down-to-earth utopia: Understanding Kreuzberg It is well known that Kreuzberg has been attracting a wide variety of creative people and visionaries for decades. But why actually? How did the famous Kreuzberg atmosphere arise in the context of Berlin's city history? Immerse yourself in the fascinating district's history, experience the adventurous everyday life of the locals, and see how the 1970s still shape contemporary culture. Locate the legacy of the squatter movement, and discover the social and environmental projects collaboratively organized by the locals. Now and then we turn into hidden backyards or discuss impressive examples of local street art. We take a break at Rio-Reiser-Platz, treat ourselves to chocolate from Berlin Chocolatiérs, and mingle with the locals. On this tour, you will... * Understand what unique factors led to the emergence of the famous Kreuzberg subcultures - squatting, activism, experimental arts * see how the values lived back then continue to influence the lives and lifestyles of today's residents * Hear some crazy stories about life during the time of the Wall (and after). * find out how the people of Kreuzberg actively shape the district and realize urban visions * try the best hot chocolate in town
