When paying for lunch at the cafe next door, a poster for a photography exhibit at the Amerika Haus caught my eye. While that exhibit is no longer there, I thought the Amerika Haus was a great, artistic "find" just a few blocks down from the Berlin Zoo.

When paying for lunch at the cafe next door, I stumbled into the Amerika Haus. Right now there are two photography exhibits on display -- one about the Leica "Actung Auf!" (or Eyes Open or Watch Out) and the other called "Two Germanys" featuring photos from both West and East Germany from 1977 to 1987.

The location of Amerika Haus is now Hardenbergstr. 22-24 and it houses the legendary C / O Berlin.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
