Sitting on the edge of the River Spree, you’ll be able to take in the beautiful and very colourful memorial that represents the country’s freedom. This part of the Berlin Wall is the longest remaining piece of the city’s once divider. Strolling along the wall and taking in the politically charged contemporary art is free. But if you want a greater insight into the city’s history, hire a local guide to inform you about the country’s unbridled past and the 100-odd artists local and foreign who made their marks by covering the walls with their prominent declarations of peace. Even with a local expert guide, an East Side Gallery tour remains one of the best cheap things to do in Berlin.

Berlin Metro Tour
Martin is een gids met een berg ervaring en kennis in zijn rugzak. Op een boeiende en entertainende manier wist hij ons mee te nemen naar ongewone plekjes in Berlijn. Plaatsen waar je als toerist gewoon zou aan voorbij gaan, maar die wel het beeld van Berlijn veel completer maken. En de geschiedenisles, die krijg je er gratis bij 😁 Echt, een aanrader. Grtz, Stijn & Karel
Martin is a guide with lots of experience and knowledge in his backpack. In an amusing way, he took us to uncommonly places around Berlin. Surroundings you would give no attention to as a tourist, but which are as important to get the whole picture of Berlin. And the history lessons, those are for free 😁. A must do! Grtz, Stijn & Karel
Berlin History Tour With A Local
Sizwe took me on a private historical tour of Berlin. He was right on time to pick me up and was so personable from the start! He was full of interesting stories to share and by the end of the tour I truly felt I had made a friend. He went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and knew my way back to where I was staying at the end as well. I would definitely recommend his tour to anyone visiting the city!!
Airport Pickup plus City Tour with a Local
We spent a few hours with Miha and enjoyed every minute. Our first time in Berlin and we asked to see something of the city before heading off on our own. Miha coped very well with our lack of requests, as we had no idea what we wanted to see. He drove us around pointing out lots of sights and passing on lots of his knowledge combined with quite a few laughs. A fabulous grounding in everything the city has to offer. Thank you Miha from Hazel and Caroline
