The buzz between NeukÖlln and Kreuzberg
The Turkish community is an essential ingredient in the daily life of this multicultural city. Immigration, social and integration issues are often a theme in German society. We will explain why Berlin boasts the biggest Turkish community in the world outside of Turkey and give you insight into how the city's largest minority has assimilated to Berlin’s liberal scene.
This tour takes you on a must-see experience around northern Neukölln and the southern part of Kreuzberg. These districts are full of life and buzz á la London or NY: multicultural citizens, colourful markets, exotic shops, oriental cafés, kebab bars and Middle Eastern restaurants. The tour won’t disappoint the foodie who loves spices and small exotic eateries. Nobody should leave Berlin without having tried a falafel, kebab or a Turkish pastry.
