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

Cool area to walk around - lots of bars, restaurants and cafes with decent prices, tables outside, and lots of choice. Gritty graffiti covers everything which kind of lends to the coolness of the place - you have to visit if you're into the alternative scene.

This was a great find! Particularly Simon Bach Strasse which has a full road of pubs and restaurants on either side - great choice. The prices here are also a lot less then in central Berlin or around Alexander Platz.

Boxhagener Platz is the heart of Friedrichshain. Lots of life, great bars, cafés, shops, and a fun fleamarket on sundays. It's close to the river, the main s-bahn line, and the amazing Schlesisches Tor neighbourhood in Kreuzberg.
