Discover a whole new side to the German capital on our thrilling and fascinating Berlin tour through Friedrichshain. We’ll show you Berlin history and share local legends, take you back in time to the 1920s, and even teach you a few moves from an iconic German dance. And what would make this ultimate German experience complete? Beer, of course!
Your local guide for this Friedrichshain tour in Berlin is a trained actress, a Berlin local who will help you dive right into quirky and unique narratives from real Berliners. From the incredible life stories of Maria, a Berlin local you’ll meet on the tour, to street tales of survival, your actress guide will weave together a narrative composed of the pieces of a completely different side to this funky and hip neighbourhood. This tour is Berlin's Friedrichshain with a serious twist!
On this Berlin tour you’ll also be introduced to an iconic dance that originated in East Germany, which was created in response to the rock and roll movement that was coming from North America at the time (think Elvis…). We’ll teach you a few steps and give you the background behind this fascinating piece of 20th century culture in Germany!
Next, onto that beer we were talking about. Not only will you get the chance to taste an original German homebrewed beer, you’ll be able to enjoy it in the charming setting of one of Berlin’s oldest movie theatres. Here you’ll also learn what Germans mean when they order a ‘herrengedeck’, a signature local drink that is very popular in Germany.
The tram system in Berlin is used by thousands of people each day, but there is no other tram quite like the M10, and on this cultural Berlin tour you’ll get to experience this wild and unique ride! On this very special part of the adventure you’ll be able to sip a beer as you take a journey through Berlin, learning from your local guide as they point out the hotspots and hip hangouts. We’ll even give you a souvenir to remember us by!
This super unique and interactive Berlin tour led by a local actress as your guide creates a narrative that represents an offbeat side to the Friedrichshain neighbourhood, giving you an exclusive look into what really makes the locals tick. If you’re looking for something quirky and different, you’ve found it!
