lots of shops, restaurnts, off-beat areas and upscale offerings. Some Soviet style buildings - but also some from the late 1800's. Close to transportation to other areas of the city. Might be a few questionable areas if you are a lone female.

Our stay was based in a hotel in Prenzlauer Berg, which we chose because of the proximity to our daughter who lives here. The public transportation is excellent, with direct, easy access to by train and trolley to the main areas of Berlin. The architecture, for the most part, reflects the Soviet occupation, but the area is slowly recovering by... More

Great place to explore. Wonderful little shops. We found a great little boutique on the corner of Husemann and Sredzkistraße which sells all types of nice clothing and a really nice, old fashioned neighbourhood French sausage place right next door. It's fun to explore these kind of places!

Very relaxed part of Berlin. Has lots of cool culture spots and is really good for Vegans. This is the site of the all vegan supermarket. Worth a pilgrimage.

we stayed in Prenzlauer Berg for 3 nights and we loved this part of Berlin. It is a residential area, but plenty of good restaurants and cafes, as well as few shops selling very exclusive (and very expensive) products, such clothes and design furniture/accessories. On Saturday mornings there is a street market, full of local products and friendly vendors. It... More

You can spend hours in discovering the area, it shops, cafes, restaurants etc. - all small corners. This area of Berlin is in fact much more interesting than all the places in Mitte where all the tourists go

This is a charming area well connected to the airports, close to Arcade, with many bakeries and other small food shops. It is not naked - there are trees and it looks lovely in autumn. I recommend you stay here if you are a tourist comming for a couple of days.

Definitely one of the best neighborhoods in Berlin. There are a lot of places for coffee, drinks, food etc. and most at very reasonable prices. The area is always crowded with young people and make it one of the most alive places in Berlin.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
