About us

To see the best graffiti, hear the best music, experience the best bars, to meet the best people and hear their stories, you need to step out of the everyday. You need to try an alternative.

And we want you to join us. To show why you will want to live here too. To remind you why you will come back. And when you do you will walk these same streets with a different point of view.

Berlin is scarred by wars and a wall that cut through it for 30 years. It is hewn by politics, soundtracked by radical and vital music in a myriad different geres. It has been illustrated and painted by artists great and unrecognised. The only constant is its magnetic attraction, its tales of rebellion, drawing people from every corner of the world to its darkest corners and most open parks and plazas.

To understand Berlin, to really get it, you need to be on foot.

The most common answer given to every question asked about the city we love is begun with a smile and a slight shrug and a perceptible shake of the head:

“Well, it just is… That’s Berlin.”

So we walk.

So come and join us on our uniquely designed walking tours, step by step by step, side by side. Let us help you become a part of the best city on Earth.

We walk through the disparate neighborhoods of a town that somehow clash up against each other, whose stories are hidden on every corner, outside every building. Mark Twain knew this. He came here as a poor artist at the end of the 19th Century.

Like people still do to this day.

He loved Berlin as he learned it by pacing, strolling, letting his mind drift off step by step. As he said:

“Now, the true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active.”
