Part two of our „Explore Berlin with us” series has arrived, and you’re gonna love this one! Summer is definitely here, and if you know our city, you know that Berlin in summer is all about the great outdoors, and there are so many ways to enjoy it. And after you’re done exploring Berlin’s green soul, we are introducing you to a few of our favorite tour partners who will show you a more unique side of our hometown!

Usually a part of our Behind The Curtain program, these tours were hand picked by our Berlin-savvy staff with the goal of showing you a less touristy and more exciting side of Europe’s biggest capital city. And although we have not reactivated our BTC program just yet, we wanted to make sure you are not missing out on a chance to enjoy your stay our way!

So get your adventure hat on and bring sun block, we are giving you our top 3 picks of things to do outside!

  1. Kayaking

In case we haven’t mentioned this enough times already, one of Berlin’s best perks is the endless amount of waterways. Yes, it has more than Amsterdam and Venice…combined! And if you are a water fan, like we are, and love a fun twist on your city exploring strategies, this one’s definitely for you! Our dear friends from Kajak Berlin Tours have been taking our guests on countless tours, and you can count on much more than paddling action. Their guides are full of amazing stories that will bring the city’s rich history to life and make 2h fly by so fast, you’ll want to do it all over again!

  1. Green Fashion Tour

Sustainability is the future, and you might be surprised to learn that the fashion industry plays a major role in the movement towards a better and greener world. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Green Fashion Tours to shine a light on the topic and show you how to add a cause you will be proud of to your next shopping spree! All you have to do is pick the neighborhood you are most interested in and let yourself be guided through the world of green fashion.

  1. Gallery Quest

You know Berlin is a well-known hub for art, but you don’t really know how to step inside it? We understand the struggle and so have brought another of our favorite partners to the rescue! Meet Gallery Quest! Their mission is to help you explore the vast art scene of Berlin and experience one of the city’s trademarks. And who knows, you just might walk away with your living room wall stunner! If you can fit it in the luggage that is, but that’s a whole other story!
