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.

  • Kreutzberg does it all. The roots of the alternative youth environment entirely from before the fall of the Berlin wall will not shake, although neatness is crept across the district. It's still here the fun punk-bars are and the cheap and cosy cafes. It is here the toilets look like a Design Studio, and where the anarchist @ symbol still exists and is used. Artists, homeless, punks, musicians etc is still the driving force here, but there are also quiet nice areas where people live and belong.
