Kreuzberg, Berlin

(300+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Kreuzberg and other attractions in Berlin using our Berlin tour planner.

  • Calm, nice, fun, with lots of cool cafes and restaurants, parks, streets - although not very clean. But one of the best neighborhoods in Berlin and convenient to live for short stays.  more »
