This walking tour of Kreuzberg begins at Kottbusser Tor, one of the multicultural hot spots in an area that features a diverse selection of cafés, bars, clubs and restaurants. While walking through the streets, travel back in time and learn about the area’s cultural and architectural history, from the 19th century to today. Kreuzberg evolved from one of Berlin’s poorest quarters to one of its most popular districts.
Visit Oranienstrasse, the street at heart of Kreuzberg's SO36 district, and explore some of the typical Berlin courtyards. Hear about their history and development in the fields of fashion, art and music. See the former squatted house projects en route to Mariannenplatz and the Arthouse Bethanien, a historic hospital building next to the former Berlin Wall.
Also, see St. Thomas Protestant church, the treehouse that was built next to the Berlin Wall, the Market Hall Nine farmer’s market, Gorlitzer Park, Wiener Street and much more.
