Berlin Berlin District Guide

Discover different sides of this multifaceted, multicultural city by wandering or bicycling through its most vibrant neighbourhoods.

Berlin may be Germany’s largest city, but much of the time it feels more like a series of connected smaller towns than a burgeoning metropolis. Locals tend to have a strong loyalty to their individual Kiez, or neighbourhood, and each of the major districts sports its own distinctive character. From gritty-cool Neukölln to posh Mitte, there’s much to explore here.


Once an industrial working-class neighbourhood, Kreuzberg has morphed over the years into one of the trendiest parts of town. Check out the stunning street murals, browse the shops and restaurants on upscale Graefestraße or Bergmannstraße, or cycle along the tree-lined canals in summer.

Don’t miss: trying the gourmet goods from all sorts of vendors at Markthalle Neun for the weekly Street Food Thursdays.


Home to much of Berlin’s Turkish-German community, Neukölln in recent years has become a haven for international hipsters of all stripes. It’s still less polished than Kreuzberg, but there are plenty of high-end craft cocktail bars and third-wave coffee shops pouring up soy milk lattes.

Don’t miss: the highly Instagrammable brunch dishes and perfect flat whites at Roamers.


Many of the main tourist attractions reside in this ritzy district, a picturesque place with broad boulevards lined with design shops and plenty of places to nosh. Auguststraße has a vibrant collection of galleries, while buzzy Rosenthaler Platz is home to the city’s thriving start-up scene.

Don’t miss: trying flawless, buttery veal schnitzel with a side of potato salad at the classic Austrian Lutter & Wegner am Gendarmenmarkt.

Prenzlauer Berg

The tree-shaded cobblestone streets and elegant Old World architecture of Prenzlauer Berg are a welcome change from the brutalist cityscapes many people associate with Berlin. For the city’s famous nightlife, you’ll want to head elsewhere, but for long afternoons spent perusing the organic farmer’s markets or sitting in lovely sidewalk cafes, this is the place to go.

Don’t miss: a craft cocktail at the beloved speakeasy Becketts Kopf.

Prenzlauer Berg

Home to Kurfürstendamm, the city’s swankiest shopping street, and KaDeWe, the luxury department so synonymous with Berlin that David Bowie immortalised it in song, Charlottenburg has much to offer travellers.

Don’t miss: a stroll with the family to spy on the animals at the ever-popular Berlin Zoological Garden.
