Start off the tour like a Berliner, picking up a regional beer, while we learn about the local beverages. We learn about the ''späti'' culture in Berlin as we head to our first stop, the lively streets of Kreuzberg, an area known as the ''heart & soul of Berlin'' with its eclectic mix of cultural backgrounds, street art, punks, artists, start-ups & culinary trends.
Tasting: 1 x local beer or non-alcoholic local drink

Turkish Influence in 'little Istanbul'
There is no understating the Turkish influence on Kreuzberg. They basically re-built the neighbourhood off their own back through the 80s and 90s and changed the face of Kreuzberg's now multicultural community. Berlin also holds the largest Turkish population outside of Turkey, hence there are some fantastic eateries. Let us take you to the heart of the Anatolian region, to feast on typical street-food in this very fiery establishment.

This vibrant-hub of Kreuzberg is the epicentre for entrepreneurs to test out their culinary ideas. We visit one of the hottest new trends around town, not only voted by us, but more recently by Rolling Pin as the ‘Gastronomy Concept of the Year’ 2017. The concept is simple and perfectly executed.
Tasting: Various plates of fusion fries, glorious fried chicken + Kreuzberg Beer or Soft Drink

Berlin Street-food
The world-renowned Currywurst takes centre stage. It is the most consumed sausage in Germany and the most popular street-food in the country.
Founded in Berlin, we hear about the origins of the Currywurst. Where it came from, who came up with the idea, why it became popular and how it shaped the culinary future of the capital. This is more than just a Wurst!
Tasting: 1 x shared Berliner Currywurst

Craft Beer Flights
The evening ends at one of Kreuzberg's hip and trendy craft beer bars. Split into groups of four, we will play a game of craft beer tastings. Each guest receives 3 x 100ml beers and each group must rank the beers. The winning group receives a prize!
Tasting: 3 x 100ml craft beers
