We went for a walk in the area and also in the Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg. Don't waste your time when there are so many other nice places in Berlin. It is in the outskirts so public transport is really difficult.

A different Berlin and worth a quick trip on the tube to Eberswald Stra station. Sunday has a flee market . Lots of little boutique shops and small unusual cafes. It is an old area which seems to have already been gentrified by media/arty types . Oderberger Stra. gives a flavour of older elegance and coffee/food is on hand .... More

Stayed in an Airbnb here for 3 nights, my first time in Berlin. When I got off the train at night with my large backpack, I was a little nervous. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. There are lots of people walking around. Lots of little bars and restaurants in the area. It does look a little rough... More

We stayed in this section of Berlin, formerly part of East Berlin. It is filled with artists, shops and lots of charm. We spent a great deal of time here and found it delightful. We rented an Airbnb and were happy to be here.

In the old parts not well kept during the socialist period old houses are now restored and habitude. See Kolwitx Platz, walk the streets and enjoy some of the nearby cafes or restaurants.

I stayed here last week. Great area with lots of bars. The area is a lot bigger than I thought and spent most of my time lost. Worth visiting if you go to Berlin

We visited Mauerpark on Sunday for the flea market - interesting. Prenzlauer Berg is your typical residential neighborhood, filled with cafes, historic buildings and indie boutiques. Lots of families & children - loud and bustling - not our cup of tea.

We took the U-bahn and had breakfast at Anna Blume which could not recommend more. There is a great little market on the road up to Kathe Kollwitz Platz and plenty to see. Worth a leisurely Saturday morning.

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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
