“One of the worst Berlin neighbourhoods”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

This area is full of graffiti, immigrants, kebab vendors and I was asked more than once if I wanted to buy drugs. It does not even feel like being in Germany, with the whole Turkish kebab shops, rather in Istanbul or some other Middle East city. Stay away from here, nothing to see and to do.

“Not a place I would visit again”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This place looked very run down with graffiti spoiling every single wall as well as most doors and windows! It felt very unsafe as soon as I walked out of the train station and I honestly couldn't get out of the area quickly enough! Definitely not a place I would go back to when I visit Berlin again.

“Not a place to visit in the winter or daytime!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

The area in General is run down except for a few locations close to the river which is empty in winter. The rest of the area is ugly and full of graffiti! Maybe is better in summer?

“Great area”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

I hired a bike and cycled around the area for a few hours exploring all the back streets and checking out the street art and the general street life. Loads of places to eat and grab a beer, I thoroughly recommend!

“Great area full of life”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We spent a couple of days of our time in Berlin in this area. It is a great place to chill out and pass some time people watching. The area is still buzzing with energy and good for food and drink. There are many bars in some lovely locations. It seems busy all day but is really enjoyable after dark.
