Silicon Allee/Tech City Tour
Since the fall of the infamous Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin has unashamedly been an icon for start-ups across the world. With an affordable property boom and a 90s party scene which created a young talent magnet, we explore the local success stories like billion-dollar “unicorn” Zalando, music streaming service SoundCloud and “to-do” list app Wunderlist.
Incredibly with a brand-new start-up born every 20 minutes, Berlin has lost none of its dynamism and energy. In a neighbourhood bursting with genuine get-up-and-go from Fintech to music production and Metadata, this is a place where anything feels possible
It’s Zeitgeist, as they say in Germany.
Welcome to the bullseye of Berlin’s success, a neighbourhood christened “Silicon Allee” - where the young and talented partied their way through the “dot com” bubble. We invite you to soak up the international vibe, traverse secret courtyards and discover the secrets to Berlin’s success.
Meeting Point: Outside Hackescher Markt Station
Finishing Point: Outside Google Berlin, Tucholskystraße
On this tour you will discover:
- Why Berlin attracts more start-up investment than anywhere else in the EU
- Why companies like Airbnb and Tesla have taken the monumental step to establish their brand new bases in Berlin

Berlin Street Art Tour
Leave the tourist trail behind to explore Berlin’s edgier side.
Street art in Berlin is the ultimate clue to the city’s have-a-go culture – an insight, if you like, into what makes this fascinating city tick. Forget big names - Berlin is a place where everyone wants to leave their mark, where your hairdresser is probably a DJ and your postman a sculptor.
Why not take time out to explore the global phenomenon of street art as well as the specific local context of the Berlin scene? From globally recognised graffiti legends to up-and-coming local artists, we look at pieces in a variety of mediums in a myriad of different artistic styles, very thought-provoking, very reflective – very Berlin.
