Trendy, rough edges, lots of life and noise.

Because it was a creepy neighborhood with no restaurants, shops or attractions. It was slightly dark around 3 pm and it was already unpleasant to walk in, plus, there was nothing to do there.....

Every review of this area uses the word "hip" and it is. Lots of bars, shops, clubs and restaurants. Lots of people on the streets, including Turks, Africans, and expats from around the world. Lots of graffiti, police sirens, thumping club music along the river, but quieter in the interior areas. Good mix of families, young singles, trade workers.

Kreuzberg district in Berlin is very hip, interesting and fun. Lots of great international and national restaurants, pubs, cafes and stores. I can just sit in one of the cafes and enjoy the atmosphere. There is not a change that I'll be bored at all. Lots of interesting and colorful looking people, children at play, vendors arguing to mention just... More

Love Kreuzberg. Just to sit down in one of the bars for a beer anytime of the day is nice, always something to see and lots of interesting people. In Kreuzberg no one will raise an eyebrow no matter how crazy you dress or how many piercings and tattoos you've got. Also many good bars with music not necessarily from... More

Kreuzberg is the hipster area of Berlin; therefore it's full of clothes shops, great bars and restaurants, it has record stores, street art, markets, and all sorts of other stuff, including a fluorescent and funky minigolf or a great open-air cinema. It's a massive area involving lots of streets and neighborghoods, from posh-driven areas to streets full of Turkish businesses... More

Lots of interesting places to visit. But if you want to see it all it can't be done in a day. But a day in Kreuzberg are a relaxing day where you can chill out and enjoy the many different plaaces where you can rest, shop or eat.

Kreuzberg is an interesting district in Berlin. Historically a poor and isolated area in West berlin it has transformed into a very eclectic and trendy district with many pubs, bars and nightclubs. There is a bit of counterculture vibe so a cool place to visit.

Great multicultural part of the city, with all it's bars, and cool places, and the history of it's buildings. Just a lovely neighborhood in Berlin

Lots of small independent shops and restaurants. A big outdoor market on Saturdays. Mostly locals and few tourists. Also an indoor food market at the end of the road.
