This trendy art gallery is located in a dilapidated building, a symbol of the manner in which art thrived in the bleak atmosphere of Cold War Germany.

Me and my boyfriend were strolling through Berlin to explore the city. Coincidently we walked passed the former Tacheles. We wondered what the purpose of the building is and were interested what was hidden in the courtyard. There we found a community of artist displaying...More

The enormous garden at the back is open, don't assume the entire thing is closed! Make sure you still get down there and explore behind Tacheles itself.

This place (squat) was brilliant - unfortunately, the authorities have closed it down to the benefit of property developers. Lots of crazy/quirky art - always felt the area was safe & friendly. It's sad that it has gone. I think some of the mad bars...More

Tacheles is a large squatter community that makes art. Most of the street-level parts of their building have been turned into art galleries and small shops selling art, jewellery and bric-a-brac. If you'd like to see and feel what a squat is like, check it...More

like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum

city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
