There is a song called “Kreuzberger Nächte sind lang” (Kreuzberg’s nights are long) ... Those who walk through Kreuzberg nowadays will encounter a mix of Berlin’s alternative, chic and artist scene. Kreuzberg has always been one of Berlin’s most multicultural and trendy areas. As a result, rents are usually higher in Kreuzberg than in other areas of Berlin.
This is where contrasts collide: on the one hand you can live in a rather fancy area around the Bergmannskiez or the Paul-Lincke-Ufer, and on the other hand Oranienstraße and Kotti (Kottbusser Tor) serve clichés of an alternative and multicultural scene in a dreary graffiti-shaped environment.
If you are looking for green areas, then you will also find many parks in Kreuzberg, as for example the Görlitzer Park (fondly called Görli by Berliners) and the Urbanufer at the Landwehrkanal. Culinary delights can be bought at all times, but there are two specialties that Berliners like most: kebab and the famous Berliner currywurst. Apart from that, Kreuzberg offers a great number of restaurants and bars, whereby especially the Bergmannstraße invites to an evening of bar-hopping.
Thanks to Berlin’s very well-developed transportation network, it is easy to get anywhere you want from here. From Kottbusser Tor for example, you would need about 8 minutes to Alexanderplatz with the U8, about 20 minutes to the HU (U8 and bus TXL), about 28 minutes to the TU (U1 and then U2) and to the FU you need about 40 minutes (U1 and then U3).
