We walked up and down the street a couple of times - it almost traces the character of the city: from the place of departure for those going back to east berlin before the fall of the wall (the palace of tears) then down towards...More

Of course we went across Friedrich Str. Not a beautiful street as such but a source of memory and history. Checkpoint Charlie, explanatory panels. Quite interesting.

We walked along the street to our hotel but spent most of our time going through this area in the S-Bahn station. It's like a shopping mall with a transit system that runs through it. Very easy street and station to get around.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s
and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
