Berlin like a local: the highlights or the most original private tours
Berlin is a city deeply and dramatically marked by contemporary history. In just over a century, it has gone from being the capital of glorious Prussia and an important industrial centre to a deformed city, first by Nazism and the Second World War, then by theCold War and the Wall. It was not until 1990 that the city was reunited. A year later, it became the capital of a reunified Germany and began a long process of healing, which is still ongoing today.
History has had a major impact on how the city has been rebuilt and has functioned over the past 30 years. If we consider the challenges related to remembrance, political power and urban planning, but also the exceptional development of the art scene, the many extraordinary locations or the undergroundand alternativemovements, Berlin has become an avant-garde and fascinating city.
Berlin like a local: the alternative and modern Berlin
Berlin is changing so fast that books are quickly out of date. We keep up to date and are active in the heart of Berlin’s cultural and artistic scene.
Urban arts, the alternative scene, the nightlife and the techno scene coexist with start-ups, hipsters and hyper-connected people. Berlin’s dynamism and ungoing development attracted us, as well as many people from all over the world to Berlin.
On our Berlin private tours, we show you these exciting locations, which are being created, or are disappearing, moving or changing at great speed.
Guided tours for groups
We also organise tours for companies, school groups and associations, including cultural, entertainment, culinary and artistic activities. Berlin private tours for groups can be conducted in the language(s) of your choice: French, German, or English, but also Spanish or Italian.
