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.

A customized trip with Elisabetta & Uygur
We totally enjoyed our private guided tour with Elisabetta and Uygur ( and their adorable and very well behaved 1 year old ). We need to customize our tour because one member of our group could not do the full length of the walking tour. We Elisabetta was wonderful and flexible to work with setting this up. She was responsive to our needs and easy to communicate with in planning, and stayed in communication until the tour. The tour was very interesting and she and her husband were very informative about street art, honest when they didn’t know the answer and fun to be with. It was easy to joke with them and they are very pleasant tour guides. We truly enjoyed the tour so thank you
A customized trip with Miha
We had an amazing time with Miha who showed us all the best parts of Berlin with particular focus on the Cold War and WW2.
Not only is Miha a very nice guy, he is also extremely knowledgeable about the city and its history. He was always smiling but you can see that he is passionate about the subject and that makes you really sit up and listen to what he has to say.
We went on bikes which is a great way to see lots of the city in 4 hours. He even recommended us two great places for lunch for later in our stay both of which were excellent!
Thanks again Miha, we will be recommending you to our friends for sure.
Third Reich Tour with a local
Eros was a friendly guide and clearly very knowledgeable about Berlin’s history during WW2.
We would highly recommend Eros to anyone interested in learning more about the 3rd Reich historical landmarks in Berlin.
