Friedrichshain: The quarter Berlin Friedrichshain is located in the south of Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Here you can find monuments of the GDR culture like the socialist boulevard Karl-Marx-Allee. Like the bordering areas of Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain does not offer that many classic sights, but a rich variety of urban culture. Especially the area around the street Simon-Dach-Strasse evolved into a lively neighbourhood for going out with countless bars, pubs and restaurants. No Berlin visitor should miss out on the East Side Gallery, with 1.3 km the longest remaining part of the Wall. Shortly after the Wall came down, artists have covered it with graffitis. At the eastern end of the East Side Gallery there is the reconstructed bridge Oberbaumbrücke which crosses the river Spree towards Kreuzberg and where you can enjoy a view from Berlin-Mitte to Treptow. The bridge features a neo-gothic style on two levels – on the upper level there is the subway, the lower level is used by the street traffic.
The wide park Friedrichshain, after which the quarter is named, and its fairy-tale fountain offer relaxation to adults and children. The oldest part of the quarter is the peninsula Stralau – a developing area on former industy premises. Today it is a mixture of historical industrial ruins, apartment buildings and idyllic parks.
