Berlin is a city resplendent with history, art and culture while retaining the feel of a much newer place – it was only recently unified in 1989.This ever-evolving metropolis has something to offer everyone and with so much to see and do this guide hopes to help you find your own favourite corners of the city without wasting time, or money.

Why Alt B? There are so many ways to enjoy Berlin that no two trips will ever be exactly the same. We created this guide to share our own perspective on how best to spend your stay. Alt-B has two main focuses: the old [‘alt’ in German ;-)] and the alternative. Old Berlin comprises the city’s vast, and often dark history; its grand, striking architecture and its many museums and monuments (from page 13). Alternative Berlin gives you a taste of the 21st century and describes a city at the cultural avant-garde. A melting pot welcoming LGBT people, international food, artists, vegans, musicians, immigrant communities including Turkish, Polish, Vietnamese and many more. With such variety Berlin can be described in the same way as some of its monuments: open to interpretation.
The main population of Berlin is young, predominantly 18 – 40, and personify a mix of the stereotypical frank German demeanour with a modern rebellious restlessness. This is seen in the city’s graffiti-ed walls and re-purposed buildings, housing art galleries and a diverse and idiosyncratic club scene; its larger-than- life flea markets, and its many international and fusion restaurants. Berlin is not a place to ‘find yourself’ but somewhere you can appreciate the chaos and uncertainty of not knowing, or caring, who you are supposed to be.

Where to start? The structure of this guide places the old alongside the alternative and will give you an idea of the price, atmosphere and quality of each location. All the basics will be covered in the survival, history and transport sections and there are in-depth reviews on the must-see sights as well as our own findings along the way. All of the features detail new and exciting parts of the city, which we hope you enjoy and find just as fascinating, enlightening, delicious and fun as we did!
