Get ready for a taste sensation! On this exciting food tour you’re going to be tasting everything from traditional classics to modern multicultural fare –whilst soaking up the atmosphere of one of the most diverse and lively neighbourhoods in Berlin. To work up an appetite we’ll admire the panoramic view of Berlin’s skyline from the famous Oberbaum Bridge. With some of the last leftovers of the Berlin Wall in sight, you‘ll hear stories about the quirky annual “Water and Vegetable Battle” before entering the buzzing streets of Kreuzberg.
As you walk, you’ll see where Old Berlin traditions meet new influences, discover what a “Späti” is and why Berliners love them so much and uncover the tasty hidden gems of the area!
In our opinion, there’s only one way to start a Berlin food tour: we’ll invite you to try our all- time favourite: The Currywurst (we think it’s one of the best in Berlin) at an authentic little spot before wandering through the charming streets of the Wrangelkiez, full of character, with little shops, cafes and grocery stores. You’ll go on a sensory exploration; from discovering one of Berlin’s oldest fish shops to the exotic tastes of a traditional Turkish sweet shop and one of the finest kebaps you’ve ever tasted.
Delight in a unique sampling of locally brewed beer from one of Berlin’s first craft beer bars and dive with us into the wonders of Markthalle Neun. Built in the 1890s, to ensure that Berliners had access to fresh produce, this beautiful market hall has evolved to be at the heart of Berlin’s street food scene and appeals to Berliners for its array of exquisite delicacies on offer from far and wide…prepare to be amazed- you won’t want to leave!
Kreuzberg is the creative nucleus of Berlin’s street art scene. Throughout the food tour we’ll pass by countless murals, tags, and bombings, including some pieces by world-famous artists. Admire Blu’s Leviathan or the wicked Animals of ROA, or just discover your own personal favourite among the many anonymous pieces.
Discover what it is that makes this area so unique and learn how the neighbourhood has changed in the past decades. One thing is for certain: Between mosques and record shops, whole food stores and currywurst stands, artists and students, Kreuzberg is the place to breathe in some real Berlin air!
On your food tour you’ll discover Berlin’s multicultural mix, explore an exciting arts scene, hear stories of change and inspiration and sample some unforgettable food. Whatever the weather or day of the week, we’ll show you our favourite spots, then all that’s left is for you to decide where you want to indulge and how much you want to treat yourself!
