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.

Full of late night bars, they are hard to find but once you get there are open until the late. Just have a walk around and you fill eventually find the busy hangouts. I recommend a long island ice tea, they are made very strong and definitely get a picture in the Photoautomat (photobooth) for only 2 euros. Don't be... More

There is something here for everyone. The area around the Warschauer Platz is one of the filthiest in Germany. Yet two streets to the East you are in a modern neighborhood with very nice buildings, businesses and places to dine and drink. We stayed in an apartment, which was nice, but transportation was far from ideal. Each time we visit... More

If living here or just staying at the hotel F.hain is a great are to walk through. If you like eating out it is a great option for you. If you are not lazy and like walking you will find great spots in many of the streets around.  Prices are good and you have a huge choice what to eat... More

Definitely Friedrichshain! Although Kreuzberg has some nice areas and good options to hang out. I prefer the compact neighbourhood of F'Hain with it's small but wonderful Boxhagener Platz park as the highlight of the 'kiez' like Berliners would pronounce. A surplus that this part of the city isn't completely yuppified, so that means F'hain compromises a large chunk of the... More

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.
