Prenzl’Berg (as locals call it) has come a long way since its days as a haven for the resistance in war torn Berlin. It’s a well preserved neighbourhood that managed to avoid much of the bombardment of bombs that the allied forces heaped upon the capital. Which is great for you because it makes for a lovely day out, with plenty of old architecture on offer for the amateur photographer to snap away at.
After meeting your guide, your green adventure will begin with a walk around the neighbourbood and an introduction to the city’s strong eco credentials.
We’ll visit some of our favourite green projects, shops and artist’s workshops to discover some of the innovative ways that local entrepreneurs are acknowledging the need for more sustainable practices when it comes to manufacturing new products.
We’ll chat to local business owners and find out more about how they started their green initiative and the impact that its having on the local community.
Prenzlauer Berg is also known for its killer vegan food, this being Berlin hipster heaven and all… So, we’ll also take you to some of the best kitchens in town, who all have a passion for experimenting with plants to get the very best flavours from them. You’ll taste some delicious veggie delights, including quite possibly the best vegan ice-cream of your life!
There will be some really cool, unique souvenir opportunities on this tour but don’t worry, there’s no hard selling here. We don’t make any commission on the purchases you make, we’re just excited to show off our green city to visitors!
Your tour will end at the picturesque Zionskirchplatz small park and garden, in front of one of Berlin’s prettiest churches. There’s plenty more to see and do from here, including an organic farmer’s market that takes place every Thursday right from this spot. Ask your local guide for recommendations on what to do next and keep it green if you can!
