This neighbourhood may not have many sights but it's definitely worth a visit. It is always lively with people on it's many terraces and restaurants. Especially the Simon-Dach-Straße and Boxhagener Platz is overloaded with nice restaurants and cafes. When you take the to U-Bahn at Warschauer Straße you're quickly in the city centre.

We had read that this neighbourhood was a lively one, full of bars and cafes. Well, there were some cafes but the truth is it stroke us as a rather dull place. We visited one afternoon: can't say if the area is more lively in the evening. From our experience, it was no big deal.

Stayed for five days in apartment in F'hein as tourists (actually between F'hein and Lichtenberg, in the nice small old neighborhood of Victoriastadt), went to East Side Gallery on the first evening, on the next got lost in the streets around Ostkreutz station and got to grafitti-covered fences somewhere and a house covered with grafitti, hanging wooden tablets with some...

This was my favourite part of Berlin - so trendy and rough and ready. Lots of grafitti, market stalls, ethnic cafes and restaurants. We stayed at A and O Hotel Friedrichshain - we loved it. Right in the centre of a little area - with fabulous pubs serving super strength beer (smoking allowed!), a pizzeria, kebab shops, Whole Foods Market,... More

So much vibe and colour going on..Nice coffee and restaurants. Still very strong feel of East. Without seeing this side of Berlin, the picture will not be complete. But much rougher area.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
