Moabit is part of the new artistic movement that is emerging in Berlin. Here even prisons serve as canvas for artists. Surrounded by canals, this central Berlin neighbourhood has an urban vibe with modern glass buildings, like Berlin’s main train station Hauptbahnhof, while still preserving traditions with family-run business.
Along the river Spree there are many delicious cafes and restaurants where you can try the local flavours.
Due to the influence of its multicultural population, the neighbourhood is brimming with small markets from all around the world and a student’s favourite: kebab shops.
Moabit is quite well connected, with good U-Bahn connections to Schöneberg and Charlottenburg as well as the Ring-Bahn.
