We went to Friedrichshain last year to track down a specific bar but ended up coming back a year later just for a night out in the area. Very chilled out, lots of bars and restaurants and people having fun. We got there around 8pm, had a meal and went to a few bars, heading back to the city centre... More

This part of Berlin has an interesting night life which happens on the streets. When you leave for the train station you can see musician playing some tunes and people randomly dancing to it on the streets as though they were in a club. The selection of cafes amd restaurants is great as well.

Don't go there if you are tourists. Except the East Side Gallery there is nothing there. Focus on Mitte and Postdamer Platz and maybe Charlottenbourg.

This neighbourhood may not have many sights but it's definitely worth a visit. It is always lively with people on it's many terraces and restaurants. Especially the Simon-Dach-Straße and Boxhagener Platz is overloaded with nice restaurants and cafes. When you take the to U-Bahn at Warschauer Straße you're quickly in the city centre.

We had read that this neighbourhood was a lively one, full of bars and cafes. Well, there were some cafes but the truth is it stroke us as a rather dull place. We visited one afternoon: can't say if the area is more lively in the evening. From our experience, it was no big deal.

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.
