Kreuzberg: Berlin Kreuzberg is characterised by a multicultural atmosphere. There are many little junk-shops, pubs and bars. An event worth seeing is the annual street festival ‘Karneval der Kulturen’ (carnival of cultures).
The name of this area of Berlin is derived from the hill Kreuzberg (66 m) in the middle of the Viktoria Park. Since 1820 this hill is a monument – a gothic cross on stone steps. From top of the hill you have a great view over the north of Berlin.
The streets Yorkstraße and Gneisenaustraße with loads of bars and restaurants cross the quarter. During daytime the Bergmannstraße is worth visiting with nice cafés, ethnic snack bars and second hand shops. Just a few steps away is the square Chamissoplatz. In this part of Berlin-Kreuzberg there a couple of streets and blocks that survived the bombings during World War II – one of the most beautiful areas of Berlin. In the north of the quarter you find the famous Checkpoint Charly with a museum and a former GDR watch tower.
