If you are on a walk on the busy Oranienstr. and you want to walk away from the noise to see something more hidden then go to this building and walk inside. You will find at the end of the right corridor an art exhibition space.

Add this to your must-see's, off the beaten track in Berlin. A huge old hospital has been converted to a complex for artists and galleries and performances. The Three Sisters restaurant is very good, too. Too much is going on at all times, but worth wandering around and checking out the performances.

We visited Bethanien during the CTM festival (exhibition on Russian Pioneers of Sound Art and Musical Technology in the Early 20th Century), and it was well worth seeing. The exhibition experience was fantastic, the flow between exhibition spaces is nice, you don't have to see things twice and returning the same way. The park in front of the building is... More

I was shown the building from afar during a walking tour and was informed it hosts artists and their workshops. The next day I returned and had a wander around. I don't know if there are any exhibits upstairs, I didn't see any signs that suggested that. I wandered around the bottom floor until I spotted an exhibit sign and... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
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 you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
