Visiting Berlin Kreuzberg area we found this little bar in the nice Oranienstrasse/street. This is a typical Kreuzberg bar with drinks. Also Tappas are offered, which we didnt take. We have been there for a small break and a beer. They sell Munich Andechs beer also and not beer from Berlin. Service is good, the walls and toilett is painted... More

Walk across the street to Heinrichplatz and take a pic of this place. People eating on wooden tables outside of a restaurant covered in lots of graffiti. It's so Berlin - and I mean that in a good way.

I want to come back here when I can - it's rare to eat such tasty breakfasts in such a lovely place. Friendly staff will help you choose something from the menu, and the breakfasts always appease mine's hunger compared to many places in the world. As extra coffee and dessert make it one of the best places in Berlin,... More

Visited this bar a few times on our trip. We sat at the bar and just had a couple of drinks. There is lots of outdoor seating but it's just as nice to sit inside and people watch through the large open windows. The staff were quick to serve drinks and chatty enough too.

...croque monsieur, we sat on on rickety chairs outside, huge salad, great service, decent for the price, so good the local people eat here. Busy roads, great for people-watching, no Starbucks!

We went there on a Saturday night. Easy going crowd and nice waitress. Ordered a couple G&Ts (they didn't skimp on the gin) and feeling a bit peckish ordered some olives and cheese which was presented really nicely with some bread at a bargain price of 3 euros for this delightful bar snack. Pretty lamp shades too!

We didn't manage to eat here although I would have loved to. The food looked very fresh and portions seemed large. We just had an orange juice (from a carton and not fresh) and a latte which was nice. There was a nice mix of people (young, old, families etc.) even dogs! The service was quite confusing... We ordered at... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
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.
