Seven neighborhoods to discover

Berlin has numerous neighborhoods and each one of them has its own story and its own charm. Here is a short overview of the seven neighborhoods that we think you have to discover when you get there:

  • Mitte – the historical center. It is famous for its prestigious shops and monuments (Brandenburger Tor, Museums Insel, Schlossplxatz …)
  • Prenzlauer BergOld East Berlin. It has many bars et restaurants for you to discover and it may energize you with its youthful and relaxed atmosphere.
  • Friedrichshain– Former East Berlin Neighborhood. You can let yourself be amazed by the bars and many nightclubs and their bobo atmosphere. The Electro music fans will not be disappointed.
  • Kreuzberg & Neukölln – It is the equivalent of USA’s Brooklyn. On one hand is may be considered a bit cosmopolitan on the other hand it may give a youthful vibe. It is a lively district at any time.
  • Schöneberg – Old West Berlin. It is a residential and a quiet place, ideal for a family holiday.
  • TierGarten – Its name comes from the huge zoo it hosts. It is a chic and modern place and you may discover numerous museums, a zoo, several luxury shops and the magnificent Schöneberg castle.
  • Wedding,, like Kreuzberg it is a popular and charming district, but we found it much less lively than the other neighbourhoods. Bonus point: the restaurants are not expensive.
