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 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 neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
This is an excellent museum. It is built on the site of the former gestapo headquarters. I think it is a "must" visit site on a trip to Berlin for anybody with an interest in recent history. It is a scary reminder of how one man can wreak such destruction in the world.
Our family including children of 5 and 7 spent most of a day there. Fun for everybody and we didn’t even see everything. The highlights for us was airplanes and railway, but there is so much more. The children enjoyed looking around in their own pace, playing and imagining. The cafe was a nice place to have lunch and very...
A huge amount to see and read in this really interesting museum, on the rise of the Nazis, the war and the fate of Berlin. If you can read English you don’t need the audio guide. Note that if you buy the combined ticket including the Berlin Story you don’t get a further discount with your Berlin Card.
We had a great time and it presented a much welcomed and entertaining break from our big day of walking. The exhibits are very interactive from magnetic sand geography lessons, games controlled with eye sight to creating you own song in an unusual way. Would highly recommend for all ages.
"If you like expressionism you will love this museum"

Expressionist pieces are not often associated with Germany given Hitlers distaste for the artistic movement and later destruction of countless pieces. But in the early 1900s Germany thrived in this art form. This gallery displays some of the surviving art from this period.
A hidden gem for tourists which proves quite popular with the locals.
A real Italian restaurant with all the nice charms and beautiful people working there. We have the big Suprise menu, a lot of small and really delicate courses. The chef and his wife now how treat the food and their customer. The menu is small but nice. The wine list also small but lot of good choices to a nice...
Cool building, quick service, low prices and great tasting food. The burgers were packed full and so juicy and the cheesy chips were the best we've had. Loved it and would definitely recommend. Not a sit down meal but well worth it if you like burgers
This restaurant was recommended by our friends from when they last came to Berlin. My partner and I loved the fact you could cook your own meat over conversation. All sides were delicious and the FES beer and ale was also very tasty. This place is a must do when you visit Berlin!
If it weren’t for the great reviews on TripAdvisor, there is no way we would ever have stumbled across this wonderful restaurant.
Even though we put the address in Googlemaps, it was still a bit of a struggle to find as it is in the middle of a residential apartment complex but it was well worth it when we did....
Simple, nice, clean, tranquil and very friendly hotel with wellcoming and helpful hosts. Serving basic and fresh breakfast buffet. A small courtyard for the guests disposition. Walking distance to U-Bahn.
This hotel is in a great location, where it is easy to walk to the city/touristy bits and also for public transport.
It has the WOW factor when you walk into the reception area and you can see right away why it is a 4 star accommodation.
Check-in was swift and we were given a room on the third floor....
A modern hotel in a great location, from the airport it takes approx 40 mins and the subway station is almost across the street so very easy to find. Its a charming hotel with whimsical decor, i loved it. The rooms were super clean and staff is very friendly, the front desk had umbrellas for you as well. From the...
Beautiful hotel with lovely staff. Received a complimentary upgrade when we checked in. Beautiful room with amazing bathroom.
Within walking distance to most attractions, inc the Berlin Wall, Potsdamer Platz mini Christmas market, The Berlin Mall, Gendarmenmarkt (bigger Christmas market) etc
Easy to get to and from the airport via train.
Would definitely stay here again if we return to...
"Nice central location, nice amenities, lovely breakfast"
reviewed 13 September 2018 by bonitadc
We chose this location because it was close enough to the Berlin wall and also close to a friend's apartment. The location was ideal, tons of places to eat on both sides of the avenue. We were driving a car, and the hotel provide parking (for a fee) which was safe. Once we arrived we opted not to drive, as...
