Go to Berlin 1x a year. Went to a Craftbrew pub in this area. Was pick pocketed by a group of 4 Arab or North Africans. Happened so fast I could not react. There are cool places there but be careful, do not engage in any interaction on the street esp with 2 or more persons. It starts very harmless... More

So quirky and different, a mix between Brighton and Camden. I can imagine it's not everyone's cup of tea but I think everyone should visit at least once, amazing bars and restaurants (cheap too). Travel is easy just jump on any train (also cheap). People are very friendly to! Not a bad word to say! I had a brilliant time

Situated in Bockhstrasse, the apartment was spacious, clean and very convenient for U-Bahn and local shops, bars and restaurants. I would recommend this company when choosing apartments in other areas and hope to use them again. If going to Kreuzberg, Berlin, be aware though that if you have problems with stairs this one is definately not for you, being in... More

Being from Fitzroy in Melbourne we loved this area! Amazing cafes and coffee, awesome street art, thrift shops, markets and parks! Home to Germans alternative "artsie" crowd it is definately full of weird and wonderful people. Not for toffs looking for a posh German experience, its a working class suburb :)

This area is lively, busy, Turkish and a wonderful place to visit to feel the energy of a bustling neighbourhood. We loved it.

This area is full of graffiti, immigrants, kebab vendors and I was asked more than once if I wanted to buy drugs. It does not even feel like being in Germany, with the whole Turkish kebab shops, rather in Istanbul or some other Middle East city. Stay away from here, nothing to see and to do.

This place looked very run down with graffiti spoiling every single wall as well as most doors and windows! It felt very unsafe as soon as I walked out of the train station and I honestly couldn't get out of the area quickly enough! Definitely not a place I would go back to when I visit Berlin again.

The area in General is run down except for a few locations close to the river which is empty in winter. The rest of the area is ugly and full of graffiti! Maybe is better in summer?
