Stop by the city's oldest beer garden, Prater Garten, and learn about Berlin's eclectic food scene, which encompasses everything from traditional German food to currywurst and doner kebab.

Listen to your guide talk about the city's various counterculture movements from past and present on your way to Yaam Beach, home to the burgeoning reggae scene. You'll leave off here, with lots of suggestions from your guide as to where you can explore further.
