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.

20th Century Icons: David Bowie & Marlene Dietrich
We asked Martin to provide us with a tailored David Bowie-themed tour of Berlin and he delivered with style and panache.
His knowledge of the area coupled with his natural enthusiasm and positivity made for an informative and truly memorable experience.
Martin's energetic delivery also helped create at atmosphere of tension and drama in the November twilight, which really brought the late-1970s-era zeitgeist of Bowie clearly into focus.
In addition to the tour itself, Martin gave us some very helpful hints and tips regarding the local nightlife which acted as an invaluable roadmap for our social activities on the Saturday night.
Danke schoen Martin, you truly did make us feel like heroes, just for one day
