Discover over two floors the cozy atmosphere and the Berlin party-air. On Fridays is always a little bit more packed, where they get free admission.
The Prenzlauer Berg – Buecherwald, water tower and other impressions
You wake up on Saturday mornings, slept fantastic and you are, thanks to the rich relexa breakfast buffet, full of energy. Our tour takes you first to the Kollwitz square in Prenzlauer Berg. Take the S -Bahn from the "Anhalter station" direction Alexanderplatz. Next with the underground to Pankow and then walk to the Schoenhauser Allee S-Bahn, from there to Kollwitz square. Here you can find on Saturdays, next to the popular organic market, a lovely hidden gem – the book forest (forest of books). Five thick old tree trunks in the Sredzki / corner Kollwitzstrasse have something unique among the founding ambience. Inside the trees are small compartments with transparent plastic doors. and in there. books.
If you are already in the forest of books and the Sredzkistrasse, follow the way towards Rykestrasse, and you could stop, for example, in the "Tavern Seeblick" (lake pub, Rykestrasse 14). Nowhere a lake, but you have a great view of the Prenzlauer Berg: the water tower, which was completed in 1877.
From the "forest of books" you could go via Kollwitzstrasse towards the TV tower and right by the Kollwitz square stop in the pub "Gugelhof" (Knaackstrasse 37) and enjoy French cuisine. More cosy is the Café Chagall (Kollwitzstrasse 2), a Russian cafe, where there is always a great atmosphere, especially when the food is carried by live music. Now you have eaten well, watched multicultural activities and experienced the feeling of being right in the middle of the capital.
Let’s go to Friedrichshain – experience history at first hand
Now you can go on this journey with a visit to Friedrichshain. To do this, we suggest taking the S-Bahn M10 from Prenzlauer Allee and get off Warschauer Strasse, cross over to the Karl -Marx -Alee. The former flagship boulevard was with the "Stalin Avenue" a prestige project of the GDR. It represents a unique architecture that you should not miss.
The neighborhood around the Boxhagen square is not as "chic" as the Kollwitz square, but it is more colorful and avant garde. Here you can find something on every corner, pub after pub, everywhere table and chairs outside, many boutiques and small shops that sell imaginative or exceptional rarities, and some still have the old ones " East German design". Let yourself drift, it is never too late. And with a bit of luck you can enjoy a great sunset, this time from the Modersohn Bridge. Not only couples meet here for the "sunset spectacle".
At sunset the bridge is always populated with people who gather here to enjoy this romantic atmosphere. Some bring a bottle of wine. Only if you have experienced it, you know why the Berlin residents love this place. From here you can catch an underground train directly to the hotel.
