What you'll do
I offer a cultural walking tour in Berlin to discover the city with a real Berliner. You'll get lots of insider tipps and informations to give you a different perspective and inside view on the city. This tour will take about two hours and will be located in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg. It's a walking tour to discover both sides, the former East and West side of Berlin. It includes the history of the Berlin Wall and explaining how the city has been changing since the Wall came down. The tour takes place around Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, I will tell you about Berlins sub-culture, Club culture, art scene, punk scene, the Berlin underground club culture, about gentrification and displacement happening in Berlin, about urban development and the fight against gentrification. The tour is focused on art and lifestyle, history, politics and urban development. It has several stops to show the variety of those two Berlin districts, like typical unique Berlin boutique shops, bars, cafes, historical corners, street art and art spaces, alternative living concepts, special architecture, night clubs and stories of the neighborhood to get an impression on the recent history of the city and its people. I like to take you to cozy areas we call "Kiez" where life is happening, which are no touristic commercial areas, but areas where people live. The tour can be in English, German or Spanish
I'm Emiko, I was born the 09.11.1989 exactly the day the Berlin Wall came down and lived in Berlin all my life so I know the city pretty well. I studied Cultural Studies, Sociology and Urban Studies, travelled and worked in cultural projects all over the world, spent one year in Colombia and I worked in cultural projects for the UNESCO and Goethe Institut. I speak German, English, Spanish and French fluently and have great interest in culture, art, lifestyle, politics, performance, languages, tourism, etc. I work as a professional Lifestyle Tour Guide, so I do walking tours with small groups about Berlins history, art scene, cultural scene, lifestyle, urban development and gastronomy. I also work as a performance artist and am very connected to Berlins art scene, I love sharing my knowledge and experiences about this beautiful city.
