We will meet at my local coffee shop or my living room in Neukölln. Here I will give you a feel of a local Kiez (neighbourhood) and a traditional Altbau flat. If lucky we can get to meet some of the colourful characters that live on my road. It's an eclectic mix. From here we will jump on the bikes riding through the old Tempelhof Airport where I will set the scene for the tour. The tour will encompass street art and graffiti, the squatting scene, the different music genres and giving you a feel for what's happening now in the city and what makes this place tick. The people who make up the city are very special so my tour does revolve around them. We will head into the districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain before heading back to base. No one tour will be the same as I will tailor it to your interests but also as to what is happening in the city that day. There are always myriad events happening every weekend from Hay-Bail rolling contests to fixie polo competitions so I will guide you round the happening spots that day.
I'm originally from London UK. I escaped the corporate rat-race to relocate to the bohemia of Berlin. Conceived in a London Squat by a mod father and a hippy mother my upbringing was far from conventional. Having itchy feet I've travelled extensively but found nowhere more rich in history and diverse as Berlin. So I have spent the last five years immersing myself in the city which I now call home and love to share with others.
Neukölln. A melting pot of different cultures with a high population of Turks. This area has the best sweaty revolving pieces of meat in town. Tempelhofer Feld, Hitlers old airport which is now a park dear to Berliners hearts where you can see gorilla gardening, kite boarding and much more. Kreuzberg, once surrounded by three sides of the wall is covered in paint and rich in history and lastly punky Friedrichshain and its multitude of night spots
