Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain area guide

The restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs, nightlife and things to do in Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain



Add +

After Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain are the two districts of former East Berlin that have changed the most. Prenzlauer Berg retains pockets of radical energy but is now mostly gentrified. Although there are few conventional sights here, it's a relaxed place for a meal or a drink. Friedrichshain is Berlin's new bohemia, managing a firm connection to the old East Germany and a forward-looking, youthful scene.
