We stayed in Kreuzberg for three days (in its more infamous "Turkish side"), and saw mostly relaxed and friendly-looking people. We didn't stay out for very late, but did not see any trouble around 10-11 PM (during these three nights). We DID meet drug dealers, they openly sell it at the Görlitzer Park train station. Keep on walking and they... More

A very crowded city, Kreuzberg is kinda scary at night. Saw the Dead Kennedys there. We were the only Americans at that concert. I still have my DK broken drumstick. Pretty cheery in the day, loads of places to order take-away ,have a cafe quick snack or a nice sit down meal. It was a very long time ago.

Kreuzberg was definitely a surprise for us. We had mixed expectations and did not really know what to expect, but once arrived around the major streets, we were pleasantly surprised by the “energy” and great ethnical atmosphere! On a pleasantly warm night, all the terraces are filled and a great hang-out place for both drinks as well as dinner.

Kreuzberg is a nice area to walk around, to stay as a tourist, to eat delicious turkish dishes. Oranienstrasse is one of its most "alternative" streets with very interesting shops with second hand clothes, shoes, cds, comics and everything else you can think.

If you are in Berlin and you looking for party or pastime - go to Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain. There are a lot of nice & cozy cafes, bars and nightclubs of course! Here you can find a party every day, not just on weekends

Kreuzberg is probably more Paris than Paris itself. With lots of small independent shops and restaurants, Kreuzberg appeared to be the best place to spend a day. Away from the traffic, no shopping malls and above all, no crowds! Try the small and cozy indoor market in Bergman strasse. In the same street there´s a lot of small restaurants and... More

Off the beaten track up from Bergmanstrasse on a side road off Zoessenerstrasse. Dark and gothy and it's a smoking bar but friendly and atmospheric. Well kept and a great selection of punk, rockabilly and psychobilly played on minidisc! Great place to stop and have a beer after exploring Bergmanstrasse

The side streets are coated with graffiti, so if you want a place to stay that feels clean and friendly and safe, this might not be the neighborhood for you The area is still worth visiting for the fantastic selection of food, including Indian, Lebanese, Vietnamese, döner kebap and many more I didn't have time to take in. The hostel... More

I went of course to visit the east side gallery and I end up visiting this area for 2 more days, there are many restaurants, coffes and art galleries to visit and of course is full of energy an young people, but is also full of hipsters, but it doesn't really matter, walking there is totally worth it!
