Berlin – a city known for its deep historical significance, varied architecture, vivid arts, word class shopping, and round the clock nightlife. There is so much more to Berlin then the Berlin Wall that once separated the East and West.  Berlin has a vast variety of churches, historical sites, and an even larger number of museums and art galleries.

But, as you can imagine,  the most unique and interesting parts of Berlin are not the ones described in the guide books. Instead, they are the sights, the sounds and destinations that take you into the heart and soul of this incredible city that changes its beat with every corner. Many visitors are attracted to Berlin for its alternative side, for the subculture that powers thousands of non-confirmists that have made Berlin into the city it is today.

Exploring Alternative Berlin

It is tough to discover the nuances of the sub-cultures, the squats, and graffiti art on your own, so join one of Berlin’s many Alternative Berlin walking tours and learn it all from those that live and breathe the Berlin alternative underground culture on a daily basis.

In this Photo Essay, I’ll be taking you on a visual journey through the heart of alternative Berlin – East Berlin. It all starts at the East Side Gallery, the longest section of the Berlin Wall, consisting of 105 paintings dating back to 1990s.
