Let's talk guided tours. Berlin is perfect for drifting along with the crowds and ending up having walked for miles but sometimes you need that extra push to hop on the bike and experience the city from new perspecitves. The Network of Berlin Independent Project Spaces and Initiatives is celebrating 10 years (which means we at Berlin Independents Guide celebrate 12years!!!) and is offering bike tours through the winners of the Project Space Art Award. The tours are just the way we like them, free of charge and without registration. Hop on!
