Contrarian ideas are born at a feverish pace in Kreuzberg. Punks, bohemians, LGBTQ individuals, and counter-culture enthusiasts have called its artfully decaying buildings home for generations. As a neighbourhood founded on anti-establishment values, Kreuzberg refuses to lose its rebellious nature—graffiti covers everything, shawarma stands serve late-night revellers, and alleyways are often mistaken as washrooms. Kreuzberg’s array of cafes, vintage shops, and music venues wake this brazen neighbourhood up early and keep it up late.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
