Hackescher Markt Tours

5 Reviews
Berlin's Hackescher Markt is a lively, open-air plaza by day and a portal to the city's bustling club scene by night. Luckily, its central Mitte District location makes it easy to visit twice. The square encompasses the area outside the beautiful, red-brick Hackescher Markt Station, where farmers' markets, bars, restaurants, and cafes spill out into the car-free courtyard and make for a popular hang-out in summer. Souvenir shops, high fashion retail stores, and eccentric, alternative outfitters mark the surrounding area as a shopping hotspot year-round, so grab a currywurst to-go and take off to explore the neighborhood.

Rebuilt after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the now artsy and energetic Scheunenviertel neighborhood brings hip residences, music venues, art galleries, boutiques, and nightclubs to Mitte. Head north for the art galleries on Augustraße or east for shopping along Rosenthalerstraße—and don't miss Berlin's famous courtyards, the Hackesche Höfe, just in front of the square.

Many walking tours depart from Hackescher Markt Station, but not all spend time in the square. To get the most out of your visit, choose a tour that explores Berlin's modern history or Mitte District—or give yourself enough time before your tour to explore the area on your own.

Practical Info

The Hackescher Markt shopping area begins outside the S-Bahn station, Hackescher Markt, located in Mitte. The area is framed by Dircksenstraße in the south and Torstraße in the north. It adjoins Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in the east and Oranienburger Straße in the west.

You can enter the Hackesche Höfe, a labyrinth of eight courtyards, through Rosenthalerstraße 40’s main arched entrance.
