This tour takes a closer look at two of Berlin's most famous inner-city districts: Friedrichshain and (East) Kreuzberg. Although officially amalgamated into one borough since 2001, the two districts were for several decades separated by the Berlin Wall - and still bear many distinctive differences.
As well as exploring the Soviet legacy and lifestyles of GDR-era Friedrichshain and the protest and post-punk cultures of 1970s and '80s Kreuzberg, the tour also compares the contemporary development of both districts since reunification.
