Trip Overview
Overview

Berlin is a city that has always drawn people who see the world differently, a magnet for creatives and visionaries. Across the city, no stone is left unturned. Underused mall parkades become beer gardens; public bathhouses become boutique hotels; wartime bunkers become art galleries; airport runways become picnicking and kite-surfing spots. Restaurants are tucked into dark alleys, behind unassuming doors and within inner courtyards. Over the course of this carefully curated tour, we’ll visit sites that longtime residents may never have laid eyes on—and of course, enjoy plenty of delicious food and drink along the way. Skirting the city’s traditional tourist sites in favor of its hidden wonders, immerse yourself in a lesser-known Berlin.
