Kreuzberg, Berlin

4.1
#7 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
One of Berlin's trendiest neighborhoods--and the site of the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall--Kreuzberg has long been the nexus for the city's socially alternative population. When the city was divided, Kruezberg's proximity to the wall and East Berlin meant it was isolated in the West, and it attracted mostly poor immigrants. Since reunification, however, the neighborhood now finds itself in the heart of things as one of Berlin's cultural centers. Diverse ethnic groups now occupy the buildings and streets, and the district is chock-full of popular restaurants, bars, and clubs. The most well-known landmark here is the Oberbaumbrücke Bridge, with its striking towers, which will lead you directly to the famous East Side Gallery.

  • It is a very lively neighborhood in the evening, even midweek. Going from one sidewalk to another we do around the world! All places are small, and it creates a cozy everywhere. So, we found nice to have an eclectic experience going from one place to the other: entrance into a vegan, currywurst and burger restaurant in another, waffles, to end up in a wine bar. I really recommend.

  • It is known as the hippie hippie district of the city, but it's not that much left, just a couple of steps with completely smeared walls that still attract more tourists. Everything else has been renovated and also well I would say. It's also nice because the walkways intersect with each other.

  • A nice area to escape the feel of a big city. There are plenty of places to just chill out, relax, and escape the hustle of the city.  more »
