and affordable Turkish food, or if you want to take in a concert. The modern music scene of Berlin has strong ties to Kreuzberg, with tons of indie and punk rock bands calling this area home. Not far from downtown, Kreuzberg is a fun place to see contemporary Berlin as a break from the more historical regions of town.

Washington, D.C.

I liked staying in this neighborhood. Loved the street art and I was a 20 min walk from the East Side Gallery. I had no problem walking around alone, but made sure to catch a cab at night if I was a good distance from where I was staying. I never felt unsafe, but as a foreign solo female I was extra cautious. Plenty of food choices to choose from and not too far from the metro.

This may be my favourite neighbourhood in Berlin. Bars, restaurants, cafes and tons of kebab vendors. Try to catch a gig if you can. There's always something going on here

Once as far east as you could go and still be in West Germany, Kreuzberg is one of Berlin's coolest neighborhoods. With a large immigrant population and some of the best Turkish food this side of the Bosporus, Kreuzberg is also a major home of Berlin's punk, hip-hop, and indie music scene. One of my favorite places in one of my favorite cities.

Definitely has a run-down feel, but in a shabby-chic kind of way, with
some great shops and interesting restaurants / bars.

Kreuzberg is like the Mission of San Francisco in Germany. It started out as the neighborhood of Berlin's massive Turkish population, and now all of the young artists and progressives of the city have moved in for a bit of the action. The area is wonderfully diverse with a lot of spots for great live music, authentic food and handmade shopping. Keep an eye out for all of the fantastic street art decorating Kreuzberg. It's spectacular!

If I lived in Berlin, I'd live in Kreuzberg. Lots of awesome eateries, lots of creative 20-somethings, lots of little dogs, and overall a fantastic vibe. My kinda place. Without a shadow of a doubt.

This part of the city is hands down my favorite part of Berlin...I think my soul fused with this district. Perfect for bike riding, lots of small cafes, amazing Turkish food, very diverse and multi-cultural part of Berlin. Absolutely and completely safe with tons of music, art, and boutiques to check out. I would live here if I were a Berliner.

I stayed in Kreuzberg for a week on my own and loved it! Everything was within walking distance, including great cafes, cool bars, Bohemian cinemas, the metro, and sun drenched parks. If you like sidewalk cafes and a laid back Bohemian culture, Kreuzberg is the place for you!

A really interesting area of Berlin. A great selection of bars, live music venues, and a feeling of edginess that the rest of the city doesn't have.
A visitor could do worse than spend a day or two exploring this varied neighborhood.

Back in the days of the divided city, this used to be home to some of the city's most interesting artists and musicians. They've since largely been userped by what were at the time called yuppies. The neighbourhood maintains a decent vibe and, for me, brings back memories of standing on the Berlin Wall, hacking pieces out of it, the night it started to come down. Today you'll find a few pleasant bars and restaurants. Great neighbourhood.

Kreuzberg is one of the most interesting neighborhoods in a city filled with fascinating ones. Its residents include artsy/hippie types and Turkish immigrants. It's where I stayed during my three months in Berlin and I couldn't imagine a more interesting place in the city to explore.

Kreuzberg ist alles, was Berlin noch vor dem Mauerfall ausmachte. Besonders der Bezirk 36 war in den 70ern und 80ern geradezu berühmt für seine alternative Bewegung und die Hausbesetzerszene sowie die alljährlichen Strassenschlachten zum 1. Mai. Seit der Wende hat sich Kreuzberg sehr verändert, und doch hat es sich seinen alternativen, wilden Charakter bewahrt. Heutzutage findet man in Kreuzberg einen Großteil der Berliner Clubs, Restaurants mit Küchen aller Herren Länder und insgesamt einen angenehm unangepassten Vibe. Mit dem Viktoriapark hat Kreuzberg zudem eine der schönsten Grünflächen der Stadt zu bieten. Vom Gipfel des Hügels bekommt man einen tollen Blick über die Stadt.
