Prenzlauer Berg
Berlin

Prenzlauer Berg which includes a city

Romantic cobbled streets, lazy weekend breakfasts and a lively flea market have made this district a favorite among families and young couples.

Like Friedrichshain to its south, this former East Berlin neighborhood played an important role in the collapse of the Berlin Wall and was a hive of urban rejuvenation following its demise. Today, Prenzlauer Berg has moved through a long period of gentrification and is home to young families, fashionable restaurants, members of the gay community and one of the city’s largest flea markets.

Take the tram from Mitte for a scenic journey up one of Berlin’s few hills. Arriving in Prenzlauer Berg you’ll see some of Berlin’s most charming neighborhoods. Wander the tree-lined cobbled streets to stumble across cafés and bars. Join the locals for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast at one of the many cafés with outdoor seating before making your way to Mauerpark.

Mauerpark occupies an area once inhabited by the Berlin Wall and its adjacent “death strip,” named for the many ill-fated Germans who tried to cross it. While you may still find relics from the days of the wall, they’re more likely to be on a table at the weekly flea market. Visit on a Sunday to browse many aisles of historic keepsakes, vintage clothing and handmade crafts. Take a seat in the Bear Pit amphitheater to watch hundreds partake in a weekly open-air karaoke session. Sign up to test your vocal cords and your confidence.

Visit the historic Jewish Cemetery on Schoenhauser Allee. The fascinating cemetery is largely overgrown. While it is a somber site, you can take stunning photographs here.

As night falls, travel to Kastanienallee, one of Prenzlauer Berg’s best entertainment precincts. With the large number of families in the area, Prenzlauer Berg isn’t a destination for wild parties but there are plenty of bars, restaurants and beer gardens in the area where you can celebrate into the early morning.

Reach Prenzlauer Berg by tram or train and stay in one of the many boutique hotels and serviced apartments. Rent a bicycle to explore the district and the surrounding neighborhoods, including Mitte, to the west.
