Epic Berlin: colourful Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg

Only 25 years ago these neighbourhoods were located in two different countries, seperated by the Wall. Now they’re the center of the famous Berlin alternative lifestyle, being a creative heart of the city and the world’s largest open-air gallery. Crazy clubs, flea markets and farmer markets, alternative culture centers, small restaurants and cosy cafes as well as the overwhelming number of street art and numerous cool things to do in Berlin – you can find all of that in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg. Not long ago the majority of inhabitants were poor students and workers, these days these two areas are among Berlin’s most hip places!

Besides being a place to hang out Kreuzberg is also known for its big number of immigrants that in a way make the area so diverse. In some places, especially at the Maybachufer Turkish Market, you don’t feel like in Berlin anymore. From early morning till late night hours Kreuzberg is always full of life and bustles with everything that is alternative! On the other hand Friedrichshain is a young and dynamic place yet much calmer than its former West neighbour. Both areas came from the working class tradition but now serve as the trendiest places to live, work and just be in Berlin.

Wandering around streets of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Berlin. I just loved looking at the street life, so full of diversity typical for these neighbourhoods. I spent a big part of my Berlin time watching the world go by from the local cafe, browsing through all kind of crap on Sunday flea markets, visiting quirky little boutiques and just enjoying being there. Apparently these areas, and especially Friedrichshain, are really good to live in and I really can see why as I could see myself living there too!
