I loved this unique area south of Mitte! Many small shops and artsy places - fun to walk through these colorful streets and enjoy the cool atmosphere. I highly recommend an authentic dim-sum place "Cha for Tee".

Visit for detox from Museum Island and Alexanderplatz tourist hordes. Beware of hipster tourists though. There's a thin red line there.

Many of the Berlin neighbourhoods deserves a visit and this is one of them. Just walk/bike around and people watch and have a beer. All the neighbourhoods offers their unique experience.

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.

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
