Description

Explore Kreuzberg's alternative scene with a local architect.

Working-class suburb, immigration hot spot, and the birthplace of Germany’s punk scene, the neighborhood of Kreuzberg has always been a lively place with both recreational and professional appeal.

Today, Kreuzberg's mix of residential buildings, workshops, studios and green spaces are lived and worked in by a culturally diverse population, giving the area a unique dynamic that has inspired many community projects and eco-friendly initiatives.

Your guide Larisa knows all about the neighborhood's innovative projects and invites you to discover them for yourself. As a qualified architect, she especially appreciates the kind of urban development that respects both residents and the environment, and wants to share Kreuzberg’s unconventional approach to these themes with like-minded people.

The tour will take you to the banks of the river Spree where public and private initiatives, both short and long-term, are coming together to create a new vision urban utopia. You’ll also visit Rauchhaus, Berlin’s oldest squat, famous for its shared gardens in the heart of the city.

Larisa has put together a team of experts to run the tours with her. So even if Larisa herself isn’t available, Michael, Thomas, Adam or Marren will be able to show and tell you all about alternative Kreuzberg.
