Kreuzberg, Berlin
(4.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Kreuzberg and other attractions in Berlin using our Berlin tour planner.

  • pretty racy district, many cafes on the spree, you can also get into the black quarter, insane amount of steep graffiti

  • Kreuzberg has a slightly stuffy at first glance. One notices different cultures that they also live out, but when you first get to know the people, that all are loose and open to the world. Cross mountain is its own world, you have to know.

  • Kreuzberg is stained, unsuited, tolerant, diverse, multicultural, culinary lovely, alive, adorable, absolutely worth seeing. This district has many facets: the miner Street with many incredibly interesting second hand shops and international restaurants, the Maybachufer on the Landwehrkanal with the famous Turkish market and many grade II listed houses in the Friedel's Road, the place of Kottbusser - supposedly the Kotti Yes the most dangerous place in Germany, the famous market hall 9 with street food Thursday, the Oberbaumbrücke - only some remarkable and charming places in Kreuzberg times to name a few. I'm a real cross mountain - fan and can any visitors to Berlin, which wants to look for not only the classic sights, but even real Berlin air would recommend stroll Kreuzberg.
