If you are visiting Berlin you can't miss Kreuzberg! It's still one of the most lively and colourful places to go out and have a great time. You will have tons to see while you can enjoy art, food, drinks, culture and a relaxed atmosphere....More

Kreuzberg is a neighborhood southeast of downtown Berlin. Bounded by the Spree river and several canals, lots of excellent parks and good restaurants. I spent a month there on a house swap and loved it. Easy walks to Museum Island, Treptower and Planterwald parks. Easy...More

I like Kreuzberg because it’s a popular, diverse, mixed area. From busy Klein Istanbul to boho Bergmann Str, from protest hotspots to crazy squats, from working-class neighborhood to trendy shops, from counterculture strongholds to student coffee shops. I like Kreuzberg because it’s a melting pot.

A bit of a hike but I got off Alexanderplatz U Bahn station and walked since I didn't want to miss some of the murals I was interested in seeing. Did not disappoint. Lots of interesting murals hidden in every corner. Cool little restaurants and...More

This is a great area you should definitely visit if you’re in Berlin. I liked the turkish market and enjoyed just walking around and looking at the things around me. There’s a nice path along the river with a great view.

There are TWO parts of Kreutzberg: East, off Hermann Platz is very multi-culti colourful area + Bergeman west side of the district with great array of restaurants and unique regency style streets.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood 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

It´s not far from Mitte to Kreuzberg. I would think less than 10 minutes with the underground. Very easy to find and easy to use the underground too. Look for the sign U
