Owner description: This West Berlin neighborhood has long been a nexus for Berlin's socially alternative population.
Reviewed 12 January 2018

Kreuzberg is a fantastic neighbourhood where punk rock stores and street art are nestled between Kebab joints and hidden gardens, but the area around Kotbusser Tor U-Bahn Station (pretty much the central station of the neighbourhood) has become a bit dicey in the past years.

Put away your valuables and keep your wits about you!

We went there looking for Turkish food. Turkish food is available all over the place and you can choose from several restaurants once you reach there. But what worked for us was the very different atmosphere here as compared to rest of posh Berlin. This came across a real neighbourhood where people live in.

Kreuzberg would never be in the running for being the most pretty part of Berlin but what this area offers is some of the best cafe's,bars,pubs and restaurants so no matter what your taste your sure to find something to enjoy here.
As it encompasses Frierichstraße which is a really famous street and area in the Kreuzberg district you have a lot of shopping outlets both high end and boutique so if your into your shopping you can have a lot of fun here.
To me this area really comes alive at night,once the American sector of the divided Berlin this area has a more cosmopolitan feel to it ,it's certainly different with its eclectic graffiti covered buildings ,this area has a real pulse to it.
We were in Berlin for the wonderful Berlin Beer Festival held annually every August and we visited this area most every day or night on our 8 day holiday to Berlin were we had a great time.
Well worth checking out.
