Accommodation options for your holiday in Berlin
Germany’s famously ‘poor but sexy’ capital is known for its laid-back cool, its techno scene – and of course, its bearded, flat-white-sipping hipsters. Whether you’re looking for industrial nightclubs, quirky galleries or cool coffee shops, you won't be disappointed.
But which are Berlin’s trendiest neighbourhoods? Does Kreuzberg, long known for its alternative vibe, still take the top spot? Or has the always up-and-coming Wedding finally arrived?
HomeToGo has investigated 15 Berlin neighbourhoods to determine once and for all which has the highest hipster factor. The ranking takes seven categories into account: the number of popular bars, popular cafés serving brunch, record shops, clubs, museums, tattoo shops and yoga studios. So which Kiez comes out on top?
Berlin's Most Hipster Neighbourhoods
What to see in Berlin: Insider tips
When visiting Berlin for the first time, most travellers concentrate on the best-known tourist sights, like the Brandenburg Gate and the East Side Gallery. But the city offers plenty of lesser-known attractions – so where should you head for the true local experience?
- Berliners love to spend sunny weekends on the Tempelhofer Feld, a former airport that’s been turned into a public park. Play sports from skateboarding to cycling, go for a walk or enjoy a barbecue in the sun.
- On a Tuesday or Friday afternoon, visit the Turkish Market on the Maybachufer canalside. Pick up some fresh groceries and enjoy some authentic Turkish food at bargain prices.
- If the weather’s disappointing, no problem – take cover in the Berliner Unterwelten, a fascinating tour through the city’s former underground bunkers which offers a unique perspective on its turbulent history.
- On Sunday afternoons, head to Mauerpark, a chaotic and colourful fleamarket. Don’t miss the outdoor karaoke sessions – just be aware that you might get pulled onstage.
- Relax by the river and enjoy Berlin’s unique atmosphere at Holzmarkt 25, a complex of small businesses on the banks of the Spree which hosts live music, food and cultural events.
Hipster Index Methodology
We researched 7 different data points for 15 Berlin neighbourhoods: the number of bars, cafés serving brunch, record shops, clubs, museums, tattoo shops and yoga studios. All results were assigned a representative data point between 5 and 10, with 5 representing the lowest score and 10 the highest. To calculate these scores we used the following equation:
Score (i) = 5((i-min)/(max-min))+5
The bar and brunch scores are based on the numbers of bars and brunch cafés in each neighbourhood with a rating greater than 4.5/5 stars on a leading online mapping service.
The record shop, museum, tattoo shop and yoga scores are based on the numbers of record shops, museums and yoga studios in each neighbourhood listed on a leading online reviews service.
The club score is based on the number of clubs in each neighbourhood listed on the official city portal berlin.de.
Travelling with children - Berlin takes a different approach
Travelling to Berlin with children is worthwhile and there are plenty of places dedicated to their entertainment. During the city's hot summers, there are many water playgrounds where children can play and cool off and which are popular with travellers and locals alike.
The Erwin Wurm Exhibition is also recommended, featuring interactive and whimsical artworks which encourage children to play and explore throughout the entire gallery. There is also the Berlin Kids' Corner, an English-speaking activity centre and cafe.
Berlin is a city that everyone should visit. Many of the sights you need to see in the German capital are located in the Prezenlauer Berg district, where you can find fantastic accommodations and cheap rooms. Here we can visit Mauerpark, which hosts outdoor karaoke on Sunday afternoons. This is a neighborhood where the nightlife is also vibrant! This attracts tourists from all over the world who like to go out. Bar Sky or Bar 23 are just some of the recommended club options. In turn, Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate or the famous Checkpoint Charlie are just a few of the attractions that the Mitte district hides. Tourists are also advised to visit the Neukölln district, located in southeastern Berlin. Here you'll find the Museum of Theater Puppets, the beautiful Britz Castle and Garden or the famous Turkish market on Maybachufer Street. Lovers of sightseeing will certainly be attracted by Schloss Britz, a wooden house dating back to 1547, which was later rebuilt in the Renaissance style. The district's most distinctive landmark, however, is the Hufeisensiedlung, a building that resembles a horseshoe in shape. It was listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 2008..
Apartments and rooms in BerlinIf you are going on vacation or on a weekend to Berlin, we can recommend a cozy apartment in the Kreuzberg district, a typically entertaining area of the German capital. If you prefer a quieter area of Berlin we can recommend an apartment in the Charlottenburg district. If you want to save some money, we can recommend cheap accommodation in districts farther from the center, such as Wedding or Neukölln. It's worth remembering that you can get to the center from any district thanks to a well-planned transportation system (U-Bahn, S-Bahn, streetcars and buses).
- The most popular snack in Berlin is 'currywurst', which is a typical German sausage in tomato sauce and curry. It is often served in a bun or with fries. .
- In a single day, there are about 1,500 events in Berlin.
- Between the S-Bahn and U-Bahn Wedding stations there is a great club called Stattbad. The venue is different from others because it is located on the site of a former swimming pool.
- Berlin was practically razed to the ground after World War II. .
- The east and west sides of Berlin differ in a few respects. On the eastern side, traffic signals show an orange light, while on the western side it is a white light.
- The traffic lights on the eastern side are white.
What do we need to see in Berlin?You would need weeks to explore Berlin lengthwise and crosswise. However, there are places you need to see no matter how long you stay in the German capital. The most famous building is certainly the Brandenburg Gate. After visiting the Brandenburger Tor, it's worth strolling to Potsdamer Platz, where we'll find the cinema complex - Cinestar. At the same place, we can take the 100 or 200 line and explore Berlin while sitting comfortably on a tourist bus. Another symbol of Berlin is the TV tower at Alexanderplatz. From there, it's worth moving to the famous Berlin Wall, with its famous graffiti depicting Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker. Also not to be missed is Checkpoint Charlie, the border between East and West Berlin.
City of EntertainmentBerlin is a city where it is impossible to get bored. The most famous musical event is the famous Love Parade, or Love Parade. On every corner you will find a cozy restaurant or bar. Every day there are sports events, and on weekends we can visit various flea markets, where we can find a lot of trinkets and antiques. The musical theater "Friedrichstadtpalast" offers various performances, understandable to an international audience. Literally in every district of the city you will find unique places where you can relax and enjoy a good German beer.
Green CityBerlin is often called a green city, for in every district you will find wonderful green parks. One of the most popular parks is Tempelhof, located in the southern part of the city. The site was once Berlin's main airport and was particularly important during the Cold War. Another unique green place is Görlitzer Park, where a lot happens during the May Day celebrations. Mauerpark is another unique place. It hosts an outdoor karaoke every weekend. So no matter in which district of Berlin you find yourself, in each you will discover a beautiful park, which can be a fantastic stop for a rest during sightseeing.
How to get to Berlin?We don't have to worry about getting to Berlin. The easiest and fastest way to get there will be by your own car. Berlin is located right on the border with Poland. However, if you decide that such a trip may be too tiring for you, get on a cheap coach and set off. The cost of such a trip ranges from 14-18 pounds one way and takes about 8 hours. If time is of the essence, you can take a train and within 5 hours starting in Warsaw, you will find yourself in the heart of Berlin at the Hauptbanhof main station. Tickets can be purchased from about 22 pounds one way.

Memorial of the Berlin Wall
Commemorating the barrier which divided Berlin for 28 years, this memorial is located at the site of a remaining piece of the Berlin Wall and one of its watch towers. There is also an exhibit in the Documentation Centre which displays a concise history of the Wall.
Situated on Berlin's Museum Island, this is one of the City's most popular attractions. It is made up of three separate museums: the Collection of Classical Antiquities; the Museum of the Ancient Near East and the Museum of Islamic Art.
This 18th Century neoclassical monument is one of Berlin's best-known landmarks. It has often featured as a site for major historical events and today represents Europe's tumultuous history as well as standing as a symbol of peace and unity.
