Kreuzberg, Berlin

4.1
#6 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.

    Want to get into an awesome prewar Berlin? Then you in Kreuzberg. But not the Kreuzberg, on the border with East Berlin, and altogether different: warm, open-minded, a bit of a hipster style and a bit posh. I was lucky enough to live in an area Bergmannkiez area and I was surprised at how this place is not like the rest of the city. A small portion of the district survived after the war and after the restoration, the building acquired the almost pristine beauty. Start your journey leaving the station U-Bhf Mehringdamm and follow in the direction Many follow her to market Marheineke Markthalle. The walk only takes 20-25 minutes, but I promise you will discover a lot of interesting things, for example a teeny little at Arndtstraße or local boutiques for Many. Do not forget to drink your coffee at EINSTEIN KAFFEE, eat healthy butter in Barcomi's and around Kaffeerösterei delicious fruit in the market. In General, as I write this review I wanted to go back to Berlin.

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.
