This was my third tour with Berliner Unterwelten and it was just as great as the others. This bunker was originally a gasometer and it was transformed into a bunker later for mothers and children.

You have to get there 15 mins before the tour is scheduled to start to get your tickets, U Bahn Sudstern is the closest. You get the history from before the shelter (when it was a gasometer) to modern times. Tour lasts 90 mins and...More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
