Berlin is still a city in motion, nerve quite finished, and
the city centre is still the scene of huge building projects
as it has been for decades now and the Stadtpalast
reconstruction is coming along nicely... but no, the muchdelayed airport isn’t going to open up anytime soon.

Transport
Although Berlin is lodged in the middle of the great
empty vastness of northeast Germany, it’s very well
connected to the rest of civilisation by bus, train, Autobahn
and air. Once in Berlin, you’ll wish that your home town had
such good public transport.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Berlin’s integrated network of U-Bahn (Untergrundbahn,
underground trains), bus, and Straßenbahn (trams) run
by BVG and S-Bahn and RE (Schnellbahn and regional
commuter trains run by DB) usually works like a dream. Just
remember the number or colour and end station of the line
you want to use, and you’ll be navigating the labyrinth-like
stations like a local.
Most S/U-Bahn trains, buses and trams run every 5-15 minutes
during the day. M buses and trams run every half hour at
night; U-Bahn trains run every 15 minutes on weekend nights,
with N buses following their routes every half hour (starting
from Hackescher Markt) on weekday nights.
Tickets can be used on all BVG, S-Bahn and local RE train
services. Vending machines have instructions in English
and accept coins, often bank notes and cards too. Berlin’s
AB travel zone contains nearly everything; you’ll only need
an ABC-ticket for Potsdam and Schoenefeld airport.
With an Einzelfahrschein ticket (AB-zone €2,70, ABC €3,30)
you can travel one-way for up to two hours with unlimited
transfers; it’s cheaper to buy four tickets at once (Vier-FahrtenKarte, €9). Buy a €1,60 Kurzstrecke (short distance) ticket if
you want to travel up to three S/U-Bahn stops, or up to six
stops by bus or tram. If you anticipate a lot of travelling, get the
Tageskarte (day ticket, valid until 03:00 the next morning;
€6,90) or the seven-day pass (€29,50). Groups of up to five
people are best off with a Kleingruppenkarte (group day
ticket, €16,90). The multi-day Berlin Welcomecard (€18,5038,50) is valid for transport and some attractions.
Before boarding the S- or U-Bahn, always validate your
ticket by punching it in the yellow or red machines near
the end of the platforms. On buses and trams, the machines
are on board. Public transport uses the honour system, and
there are regular checks by uniformed and plainclothes
inspectors. If you are caught without a valid ticket you’ll
be fined €40 on the spot.
BVG
The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe run the U-Bahn, buses and
trams. Their handy trip planner can be found at www.
fahrinfo-berlin.de.Qtel. +49 30 194 49, info@bvg.de,
www.bvg.de.

TAXIS
Berlin’s friendly and ubiquitous beige Mercedes taxis can be
called or hailed on the street. They can also be found queing
at S/U-Bahn stations and near nightlife hotspots. Not all taxis
accept credit cards, ask when you book. Prices are the same
day and night; flagfall plus the first kilometre is €3,40; then up
to 7km it’s €1,79/km, thereafter €1,28/km. Waiting costs €25/
hr. For short hops hail a taxi already driving in the direction
facebook.com/BerlinInYourPocket

you need to go and immediately ask for the Kurzfahrstrecke
tarriff; €4 for 2km. By the way, Funk means radio.

CYCLING
As long as it’s dry, getting around Berlin is really best done
by bicycle. It’s a flat city, there are plenty of cycle paths and
wide bus lanes for you to use and you see so much more
from the saddle than from the U-Bahn train window. Note
that cycling on the pavement is illegal and may get you
fined, even though everyone does it. Cycling across town
may take a while, though for €1,60 you can take your bike
on an S/U-Bahn train too. There are dozens of bike rental
places, most charging €10-12 per day. The urban bike
trip planner www.bbbike.de can suggest low-traffic and
cobblestone-free routes across Berlin.

CITY CARDS
Discounts are a welcome relief, so if you are planning
to travel around town a lot and see more than one
museum, get a reduced rate card. Note that students
and youths may get better reductions at museums
using their student ID cards.
BERLIN WELCOMECARD
The Berlin WelcomeCard is a combined transport and
reduction card (museums, bike tours/rental, boat tours,
etc) valid for zone AB or zone ABC (which includes
Potsdam and Schönefeld airport). Cards are valid for 48
hours (AB €19,50, ABC €21,50), 72 hours (€27,50/29,50),
and 4 (€31,50/34,50), 5 (€35,50/40,50) or 6 days
(€41,50/45,50). There’s also a 72-hour variety (€42/44)
that includes free admission to the five Museumsinsel
museums. Cards are sold online and from BVG ticket
machines, tourist offices, S-Bahn offices, hotels and kiosks.
The similar Berlin CityTourCard (www.citytourcard.com)
is a little cheaper, with restaurant, bar and club discounts
geared towards younger travellers; a 48-hour ticket costs
€17,50 for AB, €19,50 for ABC, and there are also 72 hours,
4, 5, and 6-day tickets.Qwww.berlin-welcomecard.de.
MUSEUM PASS BERLIN
50 museums, including the permanent collections of
the Staatliche Museen (state museums), can be visited
with the Berlin Museum Pass (€24/12, valid three days).
It’s for sale at the museums, tourism offices and online.

BASIC DATA
Population: Germany: 81,751,602; Berlin: 3,460,725
Longest river in Germany: Rhine, 1319km.
The Spree is 403km.

CRIME & SAFETY
Berlin is a relatively calm and safe place. Instances of petty
crimes are low compared to other Western European capitals, though you shoulds still always keep an eye on your
valuables and never leave bags, wallets and mobile phones
unattended. Just like anywhere else, be careful when walking in unlit streets late at night. Race-related hassles seldom
occur in Berlin’s touristed central areas.

ELECTRICITY
Electrical current in Germany is 220v AC, 50 Hz via standard European round, two-pin sockets. Converters can be
bought at the airport and large electronics shops, and
many hotels will have them at the front desk too.

ERASMUS STUDENT
NETWORK
How do international students get to meet locals
and the city during an academic exchange? The
best way to do it is via the Erasmus Student Network
(ESN), one of the biggest interdisciplinary student
associations in Europe. It was developed to help
internationals during their stay abroad. ESN is present
in more than 430 Higher Education Institutions in 36
countries. The closest section to Berlin is the section
in Potsdam, where more than 20 volunteers care for
you. For information, see potsdam.esngermany.org or
www.facebook.com/esn.lei.potsdam.

MONEY
Germany uses the euro (€). Banknotes come in denominations of €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500. Coins,
whose design depends on in which country they were
minted, come in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50
cents and €1 and €2. Credit and debit card payment is
possible in a wide range of shops, restaurants and nightlife
venues, though always have cash on you for small payments
just in case. This guide indicates which places do not accept
plastic. ATMs can be found everywhere; those that charge
for transactions clearly indicate the fee during the process.
Exchange offices can be found at the major train stations.

VISAS AND ENTRY
FORMALITIES
EU citizens can stay in Germany as long as they like, though
registration at a Bürgeramt office is officially required for stays
more than a few months. Citizens of Australia, Canada, Hong
Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mexico USA and a few
others can enter Germany without a visa for a maximum of 90
days in any six month period. All other nationals need to apply
for a German visa in advance. Note that there’s no passport
control between Germany and the other 14 European ‘Schengen’ countries, and visas to any of these are valid for travel in
Germany too. All visitors need a passport that is valid for at
least fourth months from the date of arrival; EU citizens can
enter with a valid EU identity card too. Check the MFA website
for the latest immigration details: www.auswaertiges-amt.de.

Rainfall (mm)

Germans like their beer, drinking about 107 litres per capita
per year (down from 136 litres 15 years ago). Unfortunately
Berlin’s local brew, the slightly sour Berliner Weiße, is only really palatable ‘mit Schuss’, with a shot of sweet fruit sirup. Cocktails and long drinks of varying quality and price are available
in a multitude of places. Non-alcoholic drinks often sipped
in Berlin include Apfelschorle, a refreshing mix of apple juice
and sparkling water, and Club-Mate (‘kloob mah-tea’) ice tea,
made with extract of the South American maté plant, caffeine
and tannins, and is popular with local hipsters as it comes in
a screw top bottle so you can hiply tote it around (or drink to
just below the top label and top it up with wodka).

Berlin Districts
Berlin is four times the size of Paris, and even though the
city consolidated its 23 districts into 12 in 2001, you’re still
left with 23 self contained areas (Kieze) in which Berliners
often find everything they need. Public transportation is
far-reaching and effective though, and you’ll grow to love it
as you shuttle between the four areas with the most sights:
Charlottenburg, Tiergarten, Mitte and Kreuzberg.

MITTE (MI)
Since reunification, Mitte has rightly snatched back the title
of most-visited district from Charlottenburg. On and off the
boulevard Unter den Linden, whose trees Marlene Dietrich
once extolled in song, are baroque and classical monuments
to Prussian culture. The proximity of state libraries, the State
Opera, Humboldt University, the old Arsenal (now the
German History Museum), Gendarmenmarkt, Museum
Island, Berliner Dom, and the abandoned East German
Parliament building make for more talk, less walk tours. The
architecturally humbler area of Mitte is the Scheunenviertel,
whose layout looks as if 17th-century planners got
interrupted during a game of pick-up sticks. It’s on these
streets that the casually chic saunter from courtyard gallery
to sidewalk café, pointing out directions to tourists seeking
out the latest hotspots or traces of the Jewish community
that lived here from the late 17th-century until the mass
deportations of the Nazi era.

CHARLOTTENBURG (CB)
If downtown to you means wide, traffic-filled streets,
crowds of shoppers, five-star hotels and tall buildings, then
Charlottenburg comes closest to fitting the bill in Berlin. Much
of what was here was bombed in the war and built anew in the
1950s. The nexus of activity is the knot where Kufürstendamm,
Joachimsthaler Str, Bahnhof Zoo and Tauentzienstr. come
together. Follow what becomes an increasingly silken
ribbon down Kurfürstendamm (Ku’damm) and the setting
becomes more genteel where you can’t see the buildings for
the trees. Nearby but isolated from the hoi polloi is Schloss
Charlottenburg, the residence of King Friedrich I.

TIERGARTEN (TG)
Tiergarten is both a district and the name of the 255 hectare
park that began as the Great Elector’s hunting grounds in
the 1600s and became increasingly more civilised with
landscaping in the 1800s. Traffic passes through it, doing a
dosey-doe around the Siegessäule (Victory Column). Slicing
though the park’s length is Str. des 17. Juni, which leads to
the Brandenburg Gate at the eastern end. Just south of it are
the museums of the Kulturforum and Potsdamer Pl.

KREUZBERG (KB)
Thanks to a large Turkish community and more hippies,
anarchists and alternative folks than you can shake a
didgeridoo at, Kreuzberg feels neither East nor West. It
was the black sheep of West Berlin, left alone in its far-off
facebook.com/BerlinInYourPocket

room to play loud music and draw on the walls (literally, it
was parked in a dead-end, cornered by The Wall). In 1987
social and economic frustration exploded into violence and
vandalism during the traditionally political demonstrations
of May Day. Every year since, the city prepares for a long
night of stone-throwing and burning automobiles. May
1st is essentially Kreuzberg’s way of reliving its 15 minutes
of fame. The rest of the days are marked by backgammon
at the men’s clubs, café-sitting on the Landwehrkanal,
and ambling down the popular drags Oranienstr.
and Bergmannstr. Two major museums, the House at
Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum, are planted in
the staid parts of the district.

PRENZLAUER BERG (PB)
On a low hill northeast of Mitte, ‘Prenzl’ Berg’ is an old
working-class district in the former East Berlin that came
through the war relatively unscathed. The best places to
soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzpl, Helmholzpl. and
along Kastanienallee (all near U-Bahn Eberswalderstr.).
Prenzlauer Berg’s few attractions include the Vitra Design
museum and a 19th-century brewery complex that is now
the Kulturbrauerei culture centre. A good time to visit is
Saturday when the eco-market is open on Kollwitzplatz, or
Sunday when everyone sits outside being cool and eating
breakfast all day.

FURTHER AFIELD
Districts mostly known for their restaurant and nightlife
scene are Schöneberg (SB), the centre of gay Berlin, and
Friedrichshain (FH), filled with creatively tattered and
tattooed students. Berlin has green spots galore, and after
Tiergarten the most popular getaways are the Grunewald
forest and lake Wannsee, in the southwest district of
Zehlendorf (ZD).

Sports in Berlin

Hertha BSC

© Photo: Jan-Philipp Burmann/City-Press GbR

Berlin is without a doubt the German capital of sports - the
city has no less than six professional sports teams, playing
five exciting spectator sports: Hertha BSC and FC Union
play football, the Eisbären is an ace ice hockey team, Alba is
Berlin’s renowned basketball club, the Füchse play handball,
and volleyball is taken care of by the BR Volleys. Their
home matches attract huge numbers of visitors to Berlin’s
stadiums; last season alone 2,4 million tickets were sold
for their events. In addition to this, Berlin’s streets regularly
host huge sports events such as the public viewing festivals
during major sports events abroad, and the city also hosts
countless amateur sports matches.
Despite being rivals, Berlin’s six professional sports
collaborate to improve the circumstances for professional
sports in Berlin, promoting Berlin’s image as an international
sports event destination.
ALBA BERLIN (BASKETBALL)
Also known as the Albatrosse,
Berlin’s basketball club is
Germany’s most successful,
and has the largest fanbase;
home matches easily attract
10,000 spectators. Since going
pro in 1991, Alba has won the
German League 8 times and the
German Cup 7 times, and was also the first German
team to win an international title with the 1995 Korac
Cup. After their heartbreaking exit in the Eurocup
against nemesis Bayern Munich they are still active in
the Bundesliga and on course for the playoffs - but at
14 points behind leader Brose Bamberg it will be an
uphill battle. Alba slam-dunk their way to victory at
their home Mercedes-Benz-Arena:
9 Apr, 18:30: Telekom Baskets Bonn
16 Apr, 18:30: Crailsheim Merlins
24 Apr, 17:00: Fraport Skyliners Frankfurt
1 May, 17:00: Giessen 46ers

8 Berlin In Your Pocket

The home matches of Berlin’s pro teams are easy to
visit: you don’t need to understand German to be
able to follow a match and unlike in other European
countries, sports matches in Germany are quite
peaceful events, meaning it’s no problem to bring
the whole family to the stadium for an afternoon or
evening of fun. Finding out about which matches are
playing where can be problematic for visitors however
as the club websites are not all available in English, and
some make it difficult to find the upcoming playing
dates. In the club details here we have listed all home
matches for the following months, though always keep
an eye on the club websites for changes or additional
matches.
Hertha BSC
Local football team Hertha BSC’s dream season continues,
leaving the fans clad in blue and white ecstatic! Hertha is
currently in third place with a solid defence and a great
offence with Salomon Kalou and Vedad Ibišević - with
Vladimír Darida orchestrating close behind them. It’s going
to be exciting, with the Champions League firmly in sight
and it’s almost certain that they’ll play in the Europe League
next year.
Berlin’s official English-language sports website
www.berlin-sportmetropole.de has information about
all the teams, venues and tickets; ticket booking site
www.eventimsports.de sells tickets for all matches.
Enjoy cheering for Berlin!
BR VOLLEYS (VOLLEYBALL)
Berlin’s professional
volleyball team originates in the western
district of Charlottenburg, but plays home
matches at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Prenzlauer
Berg. The BR Volleys have been particularly successful since the late 1990s, winning the German
Bundesliga title five times. Their upcoming home
games are:

EISBÄREN BERLIN (ICE HOCKEY)
Originating in 1953 in East
Germany’s Dynamo sports
club, the ‘polar bears’ is Berlin’s
popular professional ice
hockey team. They won the
national Deutsche Eishockey
Liga 7 times, more than any
other team, and also bagged
the European Trophy in 2010.
Their home matches at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena
are true familyfests, with a festive, good-humoured
atmosphere. The season started very well, but it’s
definitely over for the Eisbären as they messed up
their 2:0 lead by losing 3 games in a row to Cologne’s
Haie... better luck next season.QI‑4, Mercedes-Platz

FÜCHSE BERLIN (HANDBALL)
“The foxes’, Berlin’s
handball team, is part
of an old West Berlin
sports club, and now
plays home matches
in Prenzlauer Berg’s
Max-Schmeling-Halle,
named after the boxing
legend who was world
champion heavyweight
between 1930-32. The
Füchse compete in the upper third of the Bundesliga
table but are not really a contender for a title - perhaps
the recent European title win of the German national
team will inspire them!

FC UNION BERLIN (FOOTBALL)

HERTHA BSC (FOOTBALL)

FC Union is the working man’s football team for
Berlin, originating in East Berlin in 1966 and a feared
counterpart for the GDR’s state-influenced Dynamo
club. Union is still fiercely independent, based in
their charming An der Alten Försterei stadium. The
club has resisted all commercialism, with a club
anthem sung by punkrock legend Nina Hagen, and
a stadium uniquely partly owned by passionate fans.
Nicknamed Eisern Union (iron union), it had a tough
time in the 1990s, but has had more success in the
national competitions since the early 2000s. The
new trainer, Lewandowski, has introduced a more
offensive style of playing, and Union is enjoying a
solid season.
17 Apr, 13:30: FC Heidenheim
29 Apr, 18:30: VfL Bochum
15 May, 15:30: SC Freiburg

Berlin’s main football team plays home matches at
the impressive Olympiastadion, Germany’s second
largest stadium, built for the 1936 Olympic Games
and renovated for the 2006 World Cup. Hertha was
founded back in 1892 and is know as the ‘Alte Dame’,
the old lady, witnessing its glory years between 1926
and 1931 when it reached the German Championship
finals 6 times, winning it twice. Hertha’s doing very well
at the moment, positioned 3rd, with new coach Pal
Dardai turning the team’s fortunes around with solid
defence, great tackling and a very good pass accuracy.
Keep an eye on the two forwards Vedad Ibisevic and
Salomon Kalou who work very well together and just
try to follow Vladimir Darida who covers over 13km per
match!

Berlin’s museum and gallery world is constantly in flux, and
perhaps now more than ever. Several large museums are
closed for lengthy renovations that will last until the end of the
decade, and the contemporary art scene is on the move, with
artists fleeing the rising rents in the Mitte district for atelier space
in outlying districts and galleries regrouping in new cultural
nodes like Potsdamer Strasse. On this page we highlight a few
of Berlin’s many excellent galleries and exhibitions.
BERLINISCHE GALERIE
After lengthy renovations, the Berlinische Galerie recently
reopened, exhibiting the city’s excellent collection of local
art from 1880-1980. Until 24 August there’s an exhibition of
remarkable works by painter Bernhard Martin (1966); this
artist from Hannover paints extravagant pictorial narratives
which always seeks visual resources appropriate to the
theme, often alluding to artists of the past.
QAlte Jakobstraße 124-128, tel. +49 30 78 90 26 00,

C/O BERLIN
Recently rehoused in the historical Amerika-Haus near
Zoologischer Garten, the C/O gallery presents changing
exhibitions of fantastic photography. The current 'Genesis'
exhibition of striking nature photos by Sebastião Salgado is
not to be missed.

SLOW PHOTOGRAPHY BERLIN
Ukrainian artist Oleg Farynyuk photographs subjects
using old techniques, especially the wetplate method
which was invented in 1851 and was the first time photos
could be shot with short exposure times. At the gallery
and shop you can view the resulting high-quality photos,
and have one made.

SAMMLUNG BOROS
A former bunker holds the private art gallery of
advertising executive Christian Boros and his wife, who
live on top of the absurd structure. It’s full of wonderful
contemporary art, including a tree by Ai Wei Wei and
a runaway popcorn machine that is slowly filling up a
room. Tours only, book well in advance.

KÖNIG GALERIE, ST. AGNES
A strikingly brutalist 1967 church in Kreuzberg has been
transformed into a modern art gallery for Johann König,
the bare concrete walls forming the perfect background for
though-provoking art.

Stephen Shore – Restrospective

WINTERGARTEN:
SHEER MADNESS

© Lee Miller Archives, England 2016

This exhibition of 100 excellent photos by one of the
most versatile photographers and photo-journalists
of the 20th century in the USA includes genres such
as surrealism, fashion, portrait and travel photography
as well as war reporting. The photographs cover
many parts of the world and illustrate Miller’s life from
different perspectives: as assistant, muse and partner
of Man Ray, as a pioneer of art photography and as a
photo-journalist during the Second World War. Some
photos are ranked amongst the most haunting war
documents of the 20th century.

the art scene significantly. This comprehensive exhibition
covers his complete oeuvre.

The Wintergarten Theatre shows are inspired by a
legendary century of revue theatre in Berlin, made big
by Marlene Dietrich and other stage divas. The original
Wintergarten didn’t survive the Second World War, but
the show goes on at its resurrection on Potsdamer
Strasse. From 22 February, the “Sheer Madness” show
(Der helle Wahnsinn) blends acrobatics, dance and live
music to narrate the story of bright imagination and joy
during dark times. The story is about the flamboyant
Herbert von Röhm who’s put in the madhouse and
meets strange characters there, whom he teaches to use
their skills for performing in his new revue show. To get a
ticket to a new future in America, they must stage their
best, freakiest, most colourful and wonderful show ever.

August Kopisch - Painter, Poet, Discoverer, Inventor
Like nobody else, August Kopisch combined painting,
poetry, scholarship, translation, folklore, music, sculpture,
the organization of a festival, joy in experimentation, the
spirit of research, and inventiveness. He made a name for
himself when he discovered the Blue Grotto on the island
of Capri in 1826 and later brilliantly translated Dante’s
“Divine Comedy.”

Wiener Schnitzel with Schwabian potato salad,
Maultaschen with Bavarian creme are just a few of the
dishes available at Alpenstueck, a designer restaurant with
a traditional twist. The chef prepares southern German and
Austrian home cooking with fresh ingredients, changing
the menu every three days. A feast for the eyes and the
palate.QF‑2, Gartenstraße 9, Mitte, MS Nordbahnhof,

JOSEPH ROTH DIELE
A wonderfully cosy dark brown bar owned by the same
people who run the Ave Maria religious shop, right next
door to Joseph. It’s named after a prolific Jewish writer
whose quotes decorate the walls and who lived nearby
in the 1920s when this street was the beating heart of
Berlin’s nightlife. A nicely-priced lunch and delicious
Flammkuchen pies are served, and it’s a great place for
a beer or wine after a show at the Wintergarten Varieté,

LANDMARKS
BRANDENBURGER TOR
Berlin’s landmark monument, built by Carl Langhans
in 1792, is the last remaining of 14 city gates. Nike, the
goddess of victory, drives the four-horsepower chariot
atop the gate. German armies used to begin their parades
here, the fascists spoiled the gate by staging their torch-lit
marches through it, the war badly damaged it, and then the
Wall essentially bricked the patched-up gate in for decades.
Berliners celebrated the Wall’s fall in 1989 by standing on it
in front of the gate, and after renovations the gate is the
proud focus point of the renewed square again.QF‑3,
Pariser Platz, Mitte, MS/U Brandenburger Tor.

NEUE SYNAGOGE
The gilded cupola of the New Synagogue is one of the most
eye-catching sights in Mitte. Exhibits strikingly balance
the restoration of the Alhambra-inspired synagogue from
1866, with preserved evidence of its destruction, first
on Kristallnacht on November 9, 1938, and then through
Allied bombs. Documents and photographs remember the
thriving Jewish community of the neighbourhood, many of
whom worshipped here in what was the largest synagogue
in Germany. A subtle but effective sound installation adds
to the experience.QF‑3, Oranienburger Straße 28-30,

POTSDAMER PLATZ
Once a busy intersection at the modern heart of a thriving
metropolis, Potsdamer Platz was heavily damaged in the
war, and suffered again when most remaining buildings
were demolished to make way for the Wall’s death strip.
Hotel and office skyscrapers now add a cosmopolitan edge
to the city, while to the east Leipziger Platz is almost rebuilt.
The most popular public space and architectural attraction
is the Sony Center, with its huge atrium and tent-like
roof, best viewed at night for its impressive lighting.
The neighbouring DaimlerChrysler complex holds
architecture by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, and the
Arkaden shopping mall.QE/F‑4, MS/U Potsdamer Platz.

Mitte
MUSEUMSINSEL
The cluster of majestic nineteenth century neoclassic
buildings on the tip of the island in the Spree offers
the avid or the temperate museum-goer a number of
impressive collections of art, history and ethnology,
covering many facets of ancient and oriental culture, as
well as their cross-overs into modernity.
ALTE NATIONALGALERIE
Cézanne, Rodin, Monet, Degas and Liebermann are
some of the artists whose works hang around this
museum of 19th-century art. The temple-like structure
itself was built in 1876, and is surrounded by a beautifully
battered colonnade.QG‑3, Bodestraße 1-3, Mitte, MS
Hackescher Markt, tel. +49 30 266 42 42 42, www.
smb.museum. Open 10:00 - 18:00, Thu 10:00 - 20:00.
Closed Mon. Admission €10/5.
ALTES MUSEUM
This neoclassic building by Prussia’s star architect
Schinkel was custom-made in 1830 for the art collection
of the royal Hohenzollerns. Classical antiquities were
the focus, and today the museum uses pottery and
sculptures to take you on a well-presented tour through
ancient Etruscan, Greek and Roman history.QG‑3, Am
Lustgarten, Mitte, MS Hackescher Markt, tel. +49 30
NIKOLAIVIERTEL
Berlin’s tiny medieval heart is the Nikolai Quarter,
whose only truly medieval-looking building today is the
Nikolaikirche. The church dates to 1230 and was rebuilt
along with the entire quarter in the 1980s to mark Berlin’s
750th birthday in the area in which the fishermen’s
settlement first began. No one was trying to outdo Walt
Disney here, and many of the buildings have the simple,
concrete facades that the GDR government could afford.
The small shops in the area mostly deal in toys and
souvenirs and tourists gladly fill the sunny tables at the
restaurants that face the river. On Rathausstraße, there’s
a row of restaurants that flaunt old-fashioned Berlin
cuisine and atmosphere. Other rebuilt historic buildings
in the area date to the 1700s, such as the Ephraim-

NEUES MUSEUM
Built in 1855, damaged in the war and only restored
in 2009, the ‘New Museum’ is new again and is full of
ancient art. The excellent Egyptian Museum and Papyrus
Collection are housed here, with spectacular finds
such as the famous busts of Queen Nefertiti and King
Echnaton. The Pre- and Early History collection has finds
from ancient Troy and Lycopolis to medieval Germany.
One room exhibits eleven rediscovered statues that were
considered to be ‘degenerate art’ by the Nazis.QG‑3,

PERGAMON MUSEUM
The Pergamon museum is undergoing major
renovations, with the north wing and the hall with
the famous Pergamon Altar closed until 2019. Visitors
can still see the market gate of Miletus, the amazing
blue-tiled Ishtar Gate and processional way from
Babylon, and the museum of Islamic Art.QG‑3, Am

Klosterstraße, www.stadtmuseum.de.
REICHSTAG
The name together with its monumental size make most
people associate Germany’s neoclassical parliamentary
building with the Nazis, but they have little history here. After
hosting parliamentary sessions since 1894, it was set on fire
just one month after Hitler was appointed chancellor in
January 1933. It was a conference centre in the years during
which it abutted the Wall, while later artist Christo famously
wrapped it in cloth. It was used as parliament again after a
reunited German government returned to Berlin in 1999.
Renovated by Sir Norman Foster, this building is perhaps

berlin.inyourpocket.com

Mitte
the most public federal building in the world through its
glass dome. On the rooftop, photographs documenting
the building’s history circle the rim above the parliament
chamber. Two ramps spiral up the side of the dome,
an engineering feat even more fascinating than the
panoramic view from the top. It’s best to book an entry
time to the dome or for the 90-minute guided tour of
the building in advance online; otherwise queue up
for remaining places at the visitor centre just across the
road. Photo ID is required.QF‑3, Platz der Republik 1,
Tiergarten, MU Bundestag, www.bundestag.de/

MEMORIALS
FÜHRERBUNKER
One lonely signpost mark the site where Hitler committed
suicide on April 30, 1945. For the last month of his life, Hitler
lived roughly eight meters below ground in an air-raid
shelter topped by a four-metre-thick, reinforced concrete
ceiling. The unremarkable spot can be reached by walking
to the end of In den Ministergärten, off Ebertstraße. A
parking area surrounded by a pre-fabricated apartment
complex covers the location, which was entirely sealed off
during the complex’s construction in 1988-89. The bunker
was once accessed through the Festsaal (ballroom) behind
the Reichskanzler-Palais on Wilhelmstraße.QF‑3, In den
Ministergärten, Mitte, MS/U Potsdamer Platz.

CHURCHES
BERLINER DOM
The fourth incarnation of this Protestant church dating from
1905 might not look as massive if the Stadtschloss were
still standing across Unter den Linden (the GDR regime
demolished the castle in 1951). The royal Hohenzollern
dynasty worshipped and was buried here. The climb up
to the dome’s rim is forgiving, with broad staircases, side
exhibit rooms and good views.QG‑3, Am Lustgarten,
Mitte, MS Hackescher Markt, tel. +49 30 20 26 91 36,
www.berlinerdom.de. Open 09:00 - 20:00, Sun 12:00 20:00 Oct-March open until 19:00. Admission €7/4.
DEUTSCHER DOM
The baroque ‘German Church’ from 1701 was completed
with an impressive domed tower in 1785; badly damaged
by fire in the war it was only renovated in the 1980s.
Owned by the state, the bare interior now houses an
exhibition about the development of parliamentarian
democracy in Germany - and how it came to fail so tragically
in the last century. Be sure to see the views from the windows
and the impressive building models on the top floor. Free
tours in English are possible throughout the day; no booking
is required for individual visitors.QF‑3, Gendarmenmarkt

FRANZÖSISCHER DOM
The northernmost domed tower in the Gendermenmarkt’s
grand architectural triptych dates back to 1785, and
similarly to its counterpart was badly damaged in the
war. It now has regular concerts in the simple baroque
Friedrichstadtkirche church to the rear. Enter from the
other side for the Huguenot museum (in German and
French only), dedicated to the thousands of French
protestants who moved to Berlin in the 17th century.
Yet another entrance leads to the viewing balcony at 40
metres above street level, with great views all around.

MEMORIAL TO THE MURDERED JEWS
OF EUROPE
This bluntly named memorial avoids any vagueness
surrounding the term Holocaust. Six million Jews are
estimated to have been killed by the Nazis and this site
serves as Germany’s national memorial to those victims. The
design by American architect Peter Eisenmann is a field of
2,700 concrete stelae, or pillars, of varying height, creating
an undulating landscape that fills two city blocks. The
memorial has an undergound information centre which is
not suitable for children.QF‑3, Cora-Berliner-Straße 1,

fast-food creation. A spicy sausage snack that first became
popular in the late 1940s, these days currywurst can be
found at train stations and street corners across the city.
This quirky museum explains the colourful history of this
culinary creation. There’s a shop with sausage accessories
and you can taste currywurst too.QF‑4, Schützenstraße

OTTENTHAL
The pleasure in this intimate, classy bistro is that of fresh,
seasonal ingredients, often from the owner’s home town,
Ottenthal. Daily specials might include foam of goose liver
or venison pie with apple-celery salad. The portion of Wiener
Schnitzel could feed two. Service is excellent, and you can
rely on wine recommendations (the list is extensive). Wines
and other products from Ottenthal such as pumpkinseed oil,
are available for purchase. This is truly one of our favourite
spots.QC‑4, Kantstraße 153, Charlottenburg, MU

well off the beaten track, but well worth looking up. No
tacky alpine decorations here, but a light take on the genre,

WEST BERLIN REVIVAL

After the Second World War, the western half of Berlin
found itself in a very curious situation. This group of city
suburbs, which included the chic shopping and theatre
district of Charlottenburg, was suddenly declared a
separate entity from the eastern part of the city, which
included the entire city centre district. After the fall of
the Wall, West Berlin went through a tough decade of
reorientation, as investment and visitors headed east
to the original city centre. Now however, the West is
undergoing something of a revival. Next to the newly
renovated Gedächtniskirche stands the gleaming
new Waldorf Astoria, overlooking the revolutionary
Bikini Berlin concept mall and the linked 25hours
Hotel Bikini Berlin.

Mostly known for its conference facilities, this large 1958

restaurant.Q­D‑4, Lützowplatz 17, Tiergarten, M­U

SYLTER HOF
Sylt may be a skinny island in the North Sea, but these

BARS

GLORY DUCK
Excellent Vietnamese-style Peking duck. This gorgeous new
place serves crispy, freshly grilled duck, served with gingermango sauce, orange sauce, red curry and other toppings.
Or go for Vietnamese standards such as Pho or one of the
vegetarian options. There’s a good selection of drinks and
Asian cocktails too. The design alone is reason to drop by;
the dark Feng Shui interior has interesting perspective
lines, there’s a large harbour scene on one wall and the
toilets are decorated with 13000 psychedelic stickers.QI‑4,
Sonntagstraße 31, Friedrichshain, MS Ostkreuz, tel.
+49 30 63 96 53 31, www.gloryduck.de. Open 12:00 24:00, Sat, Sun 14:00 - 24:00. €€. AUBSW

CRACK BELLMER
A barn of a bar amidst all the clubs in the formerly industrial
RAW compound. Crack Bellmer is not just a place for drinking
however; there’s film screenings, and a good-sized space
for dancing to DJs at 80s or swing nights. Find the entrance
at the southern end of Simon-Dach-Straße.QI‑4, Revaler
Straße 99, Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Straße,
www.crackbellmer.de. Open 19:00 - 05:00. Closed Mon.
U­N­B

INTERNATIONAL
SAN DIEGO STEAKHOUSE
Great steaks and drinks at low prices with friendly service
– what more does a meat-lover want? There’s a good
choice of beef and other meats, even a few vegetarian
options.QI‑3, Karl-Marx-Allee 141, Friedrichshain, MU
Frankfurter Tor, tel. +49 30 42 02 37 77. Open 11:00 24:00. €. TUNGBS
CUPCAKE BERLIN
The very first thing that we learnt to bake together with our
mothers is now a fashionable little dessert snack with its
own café dedicated to it. Try ‘The King’ cupcake (with Elvis’
favourite ingredients), the sweet ‘Pretty in Pink’ or any of
the other 20-odd creations. There’s a good breakfast and
coffee served at Cup Cake too.QJ‑4, Krossener Straße 12,
Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Straße, tel. +49 30 25

CAFÉS
KAUFBAR
At this homey café you can wash down your chocolate croissant
with either a coffee or carafe of red wine. Excepting the wine,
you can buy everything here to-go: the lampshades, art work,
chairs and even the ashtrays. The only thing not for sale in
the “Buy Bar” are their board games.QJ‑4, Gärtnerstraße 4,
Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Straße, tel. +49 30 29

Wed 15:00 - 24:00. TUNGBSW
MACONDO
Macondo was the setting of García Márquez’ novel 100
Years of Solitude, and you could say that its languid tropical
atmosphere perseveres in this wonderful ‘reading café’. There’s
old furniture to sink in to, views over the Sunday market, good
coffee and original South American mate tea, sipped through
a silver straw. Bring a book, and time.QI‑4, Gärtnerstraße 14,
Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Straße, tel. +49 30 54 73

42 Berlin In Your Pocket

HABERMEYER
Like many Berlin bars, Habermeyer recycles the 1970s with
its light fixtures and furnishings but it also created its own
unusual wall designs. A popular table football and flipper
machine provide distraction from the loud and very varied DJ
music, though there’s no space to dance, but there’s free salty
snacks to console you.QJ‑4, Gärtnerstraße 6, Friedrichshain,
MS Ostkreuz, tel. +49 30 29 77 18 87, www.habermeyerbar.de. Open from 19:00 - open end. U­N­B

CLUBS
BERGHAIN
A legendary techno club. Pretty much anything goes on the
main dance floor, in the Panorama Bar and in the dark rooms
of this huge old power plant. The doorman picks from the
queue of hopefuls to create the right mix, so parties are always
varied and exciting. Arrive early Sunday morning for the best
atmosphere. There are concerts and events on weekdays
too, and in summer an outdoor Diskogarten.QI‑3/4, Am
Wriezener Bahnhof, Friedrichshain, MS Ostbahnhof, tel.
+49 30 29 36 02 10, www.berghain.de. Open Fri 24:00 Sat 12:00, Sat 24:00 - Mon 09:00. U­N­G­B­W
MATRIX
Directly underneath under the Warschauer Straße U-Bahn
station DJs lay down tracks of R’n’B, straight house, soul,
electro, disco and pop on seven dance floors within the
vaults that date back to 1901. There’s always a party here,
365 nights a year. Thursday is student night, Friday has
party classics with free champagne before midnight for

POSTBAHNHOF CLUB
Popular with students and others in their 20s/30s, this well-run
club set inside the former mail station next to Ostbahnhof has
three dancefloors and an outdoor bar. The music varies nightly
depending on the party theme; everything from 90s, RnB and
rock to house and electro. Unlike other clubs in the area, this
is no overhyped favourite - you can simply expect to have a
good time here. Also known for concerts and other events.

STASI MUSEUM
East Germany’s State Security Service or Stasi was
responsible for intelligence gathering both at home
and abroad. It spied on its own citizens, sometimes
employing the friends, colleagues, and family of those
they wished to keep an eye on. Today, this humble
museum shows the office of Erich Mielke, the feared
Stasi minister for 32 years, in its original dull state.
There’s a video of him testifying before a panel in 1989,
symbols of Communist kitsch, and many documents in
German.QRuschestraße 103, Haus 1, Friedrichshain,

STASI PRISON
The most hard-hitting of all GDR-related museums, the Stasi
Prison shows the sheer brutality of this dictatorship. Used by
the Soviets and the GDR’s secret service to extract confessions
in advance of (show) trials, the Hohenschönhausen prison
swallowed thousands of people who underwent horrific
physical and psychological torture in the chilling ‘submarine’
cell block and the interrogation rooms. A short film is followed
by an excellent 90-minute guided tour, vividly explaining how
efficiently the prison system worked, and how nobody ever
escaped. Take tram M5 from Alexanderplatz to Freienwalder
Straße and walk 600 metres.QGenslerstraße 66, tel. +49 30

THE WALL MUSEUM (MAUERMUSEUM)
Right next to the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining
stretch of the Berlin Wall, this new museum uses films
of historic events and interviews with witnesses plus
some exhibits to tell the story of the structure that split
the city from 1961 to 1989. Not to be confused with the
Mauermuseum at Checkpoint Charlie.QMühlenstrasse

Prenzlauer Berg
On a low hill northeast
of Mitte, ‘Prenzl’ Berg’ is an
old working-class district
in the former East Berlin
that came through the war
relatively unscathed. After
1989, the cool brigade
pounced on the area, and
houses that were once
home to East German
punks were renovated
in odes to pastel. The
number of wine shops and
young parents pushing
pricey prams indicates the level of gentrification here. The
best places to soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzplatz,
Helmholzplatz and along Kastanienallee. One of Prenzlauer
Berg’s best attractions is the Kulturbrauerei culture centre,
set in a 19th-century brewery complex. This chapter also
covers some places in multicultural Wedding, just to the
west.

POCKET WALK: PRENZLAUER BERG
Start walking uphill along Kollwitzstraße from U-Bahn
station Senefelder Platz. From leafy Kollwitzplatz turn
into beautiful Husemannstraße, which was already
restored in GDR times, and left into Sredzkistraße
where you’ll spot the Kulturbrauerei complex ahead;
enter beside the tall chimney and wander through its
courtyards to the northern exit. Cross Danziger Straße
and amble down Lychenerstraße to pretty, café-lined
Helmholtzplatz. Follow Raumerstraße west, turn left
down Pappelallee and cross underneath the U-Bahn
station to Eberswalder Straße; you’ll soon reach the
popular Mauerpark and the top end of Bernauer Straße
with its excellent Wall Memorial.

HOTEL
PRECISE MYER’S
Entered from a quiet courtyard, Myer’s is an upmarket
private hotel with smallish, classically furnished rooms
overlooking the garden. On the ground floor, a tearoom
has a pleasant summer terrace.QH‑2, Metzer Straße

GERMAN
DIE SCHULE
Modern and light German food on Berlin’s prime catwalk.
Kastanienallee, also known as casting alley, is a perfect
place to watch Berlin street style. Die Schule has a terrace
facing the street and the airy interiors belie that these
rooms used to be classrooms (hence the name). You can
have all the German food classics, and even better: you
can have them all at once: try German Kleinigkeiten, small
samples of everything the local cuisine is famous for.QG‑2,
Kastanienallee 82, Prenzlauer Berg, MU Eberswalder
Straße, tel. +49 30 780 08 95 50, www.restaurant-dieschule.de. Open 11:00 - 24:00. BW
METZER ECK
Opened 1913, time seems to have stood still in the oldest
tavern in Prenzlauer Berg - and that’s the way the regulars
like it. The Eck serves inexpensive Berlin dishes - sausages,
Boulette (hamburger), and Bratkartoffel (fried potatoes),
and has a letter from artist Heinrich Zille to the first tavern
owner hanging on the back wall, as well as a savings box
that regulars once contributed to.QG‑2, Metzer Straße 33,

RESTAURATION 1900
Our Kollwitzplatz favourite, 1900 exhibits some fascinating
photographs of the neighbourhood before (Trabant) and
after (Smart) 1989. It serves excellent Berlin and German
food, as well as some pasta and vegetarian options.
Come on Saturday morning to watch locals shopping at
the weekly market, and on Sundays to fill up at the allyou-can-eat breakfast buffet.QH‑2, Husemannstraße

FAST FOOD
KONNOPKE’S IMBISS
The Ziervogel family started selling their famous Wursts
in 1930. This simple shack is a convenient stop for those
spilling out of the Eberswalder Straße U-Bahn; the Imbiss
is just south, beneath the tracks. To eat your Currywurst like
a true native, order it ohne darm (without the intestine skin
wrapping).QG‑1, Schönhauser Allee 44b, Prenzlauer

FLEISCHLUST
A spot for those with healthy lust for flesh can grill ‘n chill.
Staff in 1930s outfits serve excellent steaks, cooked anything
from blue (extremely rare) to well done. For the undecided,
there’s a mixed grill, while the thirsty can delve into the
wine and cocktail menu.QH‑1, Pappelallee 36, Prenzlauer

GUGELHOF
During the early bloom of Kollwitzplatz’s gentrification,
the success of little Gugelhof was sealed by heads of state:
Schröder, Fischer, Albright and even Bill Clinton made surprise
visits. German, French, and Swiss dishes share the menu; this
is where to try flammekuchen, a thin-crust Alsatian pizza. The
atmosphere is lively and service is friendly.QH‑2, Knaackstraße

ITALIAN
PIZZERIA I DUE FORNI
Atypical for Berlin, this Italian restaurant is not very chic, the
service is rather cheeky, and the whole place has the feel
of an overcrowded student canteen. But the cheap pizza is
highly praised, and the lively, convivial atmosphere of i Due
Forni is the perfect primer for a night out on the town.QG‑2,

JAPANESE
SUSHI IMBISS AM WASSERTURM
Discounts at happy hour (weekdays 13:00 - 16:00) crowd
this five-table joint, but there’s takeout as well. Sake Maki,
California Make and vegetarian items all run about €3. All
sushi-lovers speak some Japanese, but if you need any
explanations, the Japanese owner/chef and staff speak
English.QH‑2, Rykestraße 45, Prenzlauer Berg, MU

SANTIAGO
This cocktail lounge overlooking Kollwitzplatz has a
somewhat dodgy interior – leather sofas and glitzy girl
statues that wouldn’t look out of place in a nightclub
– but manages to get the punters in with a range of
attractively priced offers like cocktails during the happy
(before 20:00) and blue hours (from 01:00). There’s an
eat-all-you-can dinner on Wednesday and brunch at
weekends.QH‑2, Wörtherstraße 36, Prenzlauer Berg,
MU Eberswalderstraße, tel. +49 30 441 25 55. Open
16:00 - 03:00.
WEINSTEIN
An older crowd savours an evening of conversation and
wine at this cosy wine tavern. Pick a meal to help anchor
the 40 vintages available by the glass. There are few better
places to try the outstanding German whites that usually
don’t make it out of the country and there’s also a selection
of sherries.QH‑1, Lychener Straße 33, Prenzlauer
Berg, MU Eberswalder Straße, tel. +49 30 441 18 42,

CAFÉS
ANNA BLUME
Named after a lyrical poem and with a sexy Mucha flower
girl on the wall, this is an excellent, relaxed café. Serving up
coffee, cakes, crepes, meals and the usual Berlin breakfasts,
it’s one of the better spots for people-watching or just
reading. Intriguingly, it also sells flowers (Blume) from the
connected shop next door – and the smell of coffee and
fresh flowers combines very well.QH‑2, Kollwitzstraße 83,
Prenzlauer Berg, MU Senefelder Platz, tel. +49 30 44 04
87 49, www.cafe-anna-blume.de. Open 08:00 - 02:00.
SCHALL UND RAUCH
‘Noise and Smoke’ is a great place to enjoy a breakfast buffet
on lazy weekend mornings, or to down specials at the bar
at night together with a variety of artists, students and
young in-crowd. But it’s more than just a café - the adjacent
hotel has modern and affordable double rooms.QG‑1,

AUGUST FENGLER
A neighbourhood bar if there ever was one, there aren’t just
football tables downstairs, but a Kegelbahn (bowling alley)
too. The team behind the big wooden bar is friendly, and
the seating area is an undulating mass of coats and groups
of friends yakking up a storm. DJs play classics, soul, disco,
and funk in the small back dance room.QG‑1, Lychner

WOHNZIMMER
If the TV show Friends had to relocate to Berlin, Phoebe
would vote to hang out here. The large ‘living room’ is
ideally set up for meeting people. Stools, chairs and GDRera tables are constantly being shuffled to make room
for the rumpled but attractive crowds. There’s coffee and
pastries in the morning.QH‑1, Lettestraße 6, Prenzlauer

CLUBS
GEBURTSTAGSKLUB
Twenty year-olds fill the two low-ceilinged rooms of this
otherwise spacious cellar. Don’t miss the mad monthly drag
party with Nina Queer. Like at many clubs in Berlin, you
have to brave the walk down a dark courtyard.QH‑2, Am

SODA CLUB
In the courtyard of the Kulturbrauerei complex, Soda is a
fun club with an enthusiastic regular crowd. Salsa is played

Prenzlauer Berg
Sightseeing
LANDMARKS
KULTURBRAUEREI
Follow the yellow brick wall of this 19th-century
brewery and you’ll eventually find an entryway into a
nightlife Mecca that resembles an Old Town setting. A
cobblestone pedestrian way courses through the centre
of the complex, whose 25,000 square metres is filled with
bars, restaurants, clubs, galleries and a cinema. The only
thing you won’t find is freshly brewed beer; Schultheiss
shut down production here in 1967. Soda Club is a both
a restaurant and popular nightclub, and Kesselhaus and
Alte Kantine host anything from readings to theater to
live bands.QG‑2, Schönhauser Allee 36-39, Prenzlauer

anyone can grab the microphone and sing for a crowd
of thousands.QG‑1, Eberswalder Straße, Prenzlauer

POCKET WALK: KREUZBERG
Kreuzberg is best explored in two parts. From Platz der
Luftbrücke station walk west to Viktoriapark and climb the
Kreuzberg for views north over the city. Descend eastwards
and walk along genteel Bergmannstraße, perhaps
visiting a café or the market hall, before walking south to
Columbiadamm for access to the the former Tempelhof
airport, now a wonderful park.
Start a tour of the fascinating eastern end of Kreuzberg
at Kottbusser Tor U-Bahn station; wander north through
‘little Istanbul’ to Oranienplatz and follow the park to
the Engelbecken pond where you can follow the former
Wall along Bethaniendamm to Mariannenplatz, a centre
of Berlin subculture. Stroll down Waldemarstraße to
café-lined Lausitzerplatz and cross under the U-Bahn
line to lively Görlitzer Park. From here, go north into
Falckensteinstraße to discover more of Kreuzberg’s street
art, or head south along Ohlauer Straße and across
Landwehrkanal into the trendy ‘Kreuzkölln’ district for
cupcakes and cocktails.

GETTING THERE
The Bergmannstraße area is best reached from
Friedrichstraße station on the U6; get off at Mehringdamm,
or at Platz der Luftbrücke for the Viktoriapark. For the gritty
end of Kreuzberg hop on the U8 from Alexanderplatz
and pop up at Kottbusser Tor. The Kreuzkölln bars are
within pubcrawling distance of Schönleinstraße and
Hermannplatz stations, on the same line.

Thanks to a large Turkish
community and more
hippies, anarchists and
alternative folks than
you can shake a bong at,
Kreuzberg feels neither east
nor west. It was the black
sheep of West Berlin, literally
cornered up against the
death strip and left alone
to play loud music and
draw on the walls. By now,
the protesting students
of 1968 have grown grey
alongside the Turkish immigrants. Every year since 1987,
Kreuzberg relives its 15 minutes of fame during the traditional
May Day political demonstrations, which invariably turn into
a long night of stone-throwing and burning cars. Otherwise,
Kreuzberg is aMITTE
perfectly safe district to wander through, and
it’s all about backgammon at the men’s clubs, café-sitting
along Landwehrkanal, and ambling down the popular
Oranienstraße and Bergmannstraße drags.
This chapter also covers areas south of Kreuzberg: leafy
Treptow west along the river Spree, the Tempelhof
airport-turned-park which attracts thousands of visitors
in summer, and the upcoming Neukölln district. Here,
the Kreuzkölln area around Reuterstraße is increasingly
attracting hipsters, artists, artsy boutiques and weird
nightlife spots.

MILCHBAR
It is the foam of beer that lines the upper lip of patrons of
Milchbar, home to punks, students, and aging alternative
types still loyal to the sounds of punk, ska, thrash, and
hard rock. The crowd is not so anarchic as to not want to
cheer on their teams when football games are screened.

ROSES
It’s all so tactile here - both the fuzzy red walls and people
packed end to end in this tiny kitsch-o-mat. The music is

German artist Isa Genzken (born 1948) is one of the
most remarkable and radical artists of our time and
her diverse works represent one of the most important
contemporary stances of our time. The new “Make
Yourself Pretty!” exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau
hall presents her early films, drawings, ellipsoids and
concrete sculptures to complex collages and everyday
items integrated into montages. Isa Genzken risked
it all in her quest for artistic regeneration and in her
radical manner she develops diverse works, which are
concerned with the topic of beauty in the sense of the
essential and absolute.

The famous zinc-plated fortress designed by Daniel

TOPOGRAPHIE DES TERRORS
Beside a souvenir-ravaged stretch of Wall, the cellars are
all that remain of the palace housing the Reich Security
(SS) Office. The fascinating exhibition in the trench and the
adjacent pavilion and park uses models, texts and photos to
highlight the topography of the Third Reich police, military
and security groups that were headquartered in this area, and
discusses their organisation and the terror they cast across
Europe. The most important lesson to take home is perhaps
that these organisation only managed to thrive thanks to the
continuous cooperation of many institutes and citizens. Set
aside 2-3 hours to do it justice.QF‑4, Niederkirchnerstraße

Before heading up the hill, crowned with Karl Friedrich
Schinkel’s memorial to the Napoleonic Wars, go to the
corner of Kreuzbergstraße and Großbeerenstraße for an
eyeful of the park’s waterfall, constructed in the late 19th
century. Kids stripped to their knickers wade in between
the shallow, tiered levels. 65 metres above, people lean
back against the graffiti-laden monument to take in
the panoramic view. Towards the back of the park, past
a playground and off the Bacci field, is the Golgotha

MARKTHALLE IX
When Berlin’s rapid growth and new hygiene measures
made the street markets redundant in the late 19th
century, the city built a series of grand brick market halls
in all districts, ensuring a supply of quality products to all
corners of the city. Markthalle IX, or market hall number
9, is one of just two such halls that survived war and
city planners, saved by several shops that rented space
inside. A few years ago some young entrepreneurs
restarted the weekly markets in the building, adding
events like cake, crafts and Christmas markets. It’s been
a resounding success, with the streetfood markets on
Thursday evenings attracting hipsters from all over
town. Arrive early to beat the beardy crowds!

district and the Berlin Wall near Ostbahnhof. Some of the
Spree is diverted along park-lined canals, and Berlin has
more bridges than Venice or Amsterdam.
