We spent the whole day walking through the neighborhood. It was an awesome experience, this area is full of interesting spots whether you look for record stores, underground bookshops, small cafes or vintage fashion stores. If you are looking for a place to chill out in nature, take a blanket and go to Gorlitzer Park.

Walk across the bridge after visiting East Side Gallery...and you're in a fun section of Kruezberg. You'll find lots of eateries and boutiques. And you'll find more street art and murals. If you like chasing graffiti and political signage, you must take a trip to the neighborhood.

Great neighbourhood filled with a whole range of food and drink options ranging from traditional style pubs and restaurants to clubs and cafe/wine bar style establishments. We went to see a band at SO36 club and hung around for a few post gig drinks. Great party atmosphere spilling out of the bars and along the streets- and everyone enjoying the... More

I stayed in Neukölln for a while and thus had the need to walk through Kreuzberg at night on several occasions. The restaurants and bars that opened at night were nice, especially a Vietnamese one owned by some Vietnamese. It is a bit quiet otherwise, but I didn't encounter any real issues walking alone at night, apart from some stares.... More

Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 . A small free art gallery in an old hospital with great grounds and interesting background history and apparently once a squat. The entrance wasn't that obvious as its only signposted the café but one of the best hidden treasures.

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.
