Kreuzberg, Berlin

4.1
#6 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

  • Kreuzberg is a multi cultural area with a very lively character. Many small restaurants with sometimes very special cuisine for a small price. A paradise for the alternative audience. Just great for strolling or on one of the many terraces.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
