Monday, August 15th, 2011

Our top 10 of things to do in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg
If you are coming to Berlin we could recommend you to pay a visit to the vivid district
Prenzlauer Berg.
here you will find loads of small shops, bars, markets and parks. For all the people who
don´t have any idea what to see and do in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg, we have made a handy
top 10 of great activities in our amazing neighborhood. All of these sights and bars are
within walking distance to the East Seven Berlin Hostel. If you are planning to come to
Berlin you are more than welcome to stay at our cozy hostel, right in the heart of Berlin
Prenzlauer Berg.
Here is our personal TOP 10:
1.It´s summertime, Yeah!! a must visit: Berlins largest and oldest beer garden – the
Prater.
2.Wasserturm The unofficial symbol of Prenzlauer Berg, this 30m high tower was built in
1877 as the local water reservoir. Once used by the Nazis as a prison, today the round
brick Wasserturm has been converted into trendy apartments.
Check for art exhibitions next to the tower, in the underground reservoir.
3.enjoy Berlin´s great bars/clubs/cafes all around us – e.g. White Trash, Prater
(Berlin’s oldest beergarden),
Week End, Icon Club, Kaffee Burger, Bassy Club,
Tacheles etc.

6.Helmholzplatz. According to local legend, Prenzlauer Berg has one of the highest birth
rates in all of Germany. Helmholzplatz is just one of the places in the district where
mummies and daddies come to push their new-borns around in expensive pushchairs and
gorge on a little brunch.
Visit the best affordable Japanese restaurant in East Berlin: Sasaya
Alternative and strictly limited Berlin fashion and graphics: Supalife Kiosk in Raumer Str.
7.Kollwitzplatz: Käthe Kollwitz, the famous left-wing, anti-war artist, would no doubt take
great pride that not only is there a square named after her (complete with bronze statue)
but that its one that was once a meeting point for intellectuals and artists during Prenzlauer
Bergs nasty East Germany days.
Dont miss Kollwitzplatz`s famous market on saturdays
Enjoy amazing cakes and delicious coffee at the Anna Blume café on the corner of

8.Kulturbrauerei This huge complex of night-time hangouts originally housed Berlins
Schultheiss brewery for more than 150 years. By night the Culture Brewery turns into a
popular meeting point for determined drinkers, eager to explore the buildings wealth of

The Kulturbrauerei is also a popular venue for famous live acts.
9.Mauerpark If you are over 20 and still like to play (particularly with beer bottles), then
this is your playground. Its the best place in Berlin for relaxed outdoor boozing and there
are hilltop swingsets which are a great spot for watching the sun sink lazily in the West.

TOP 10 of things to do in Berlin, for FREE!!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

 

Summer Berlin

We have made a TOP 10 of amazing things to do in Berlin, all free of charge!!

Berlin is an amazing city, and it doesn´t need to be to expansive to have a good time in Germany´s Capitol! If you are traveling on a budget there are still plenty of cool things to do, that are totally free of any charge!!! Read on and we will give price some of the best things to do, for free!

Here is our TOP 10:
1.Tacheles – One-time department store then SS headquarters in the heart of Berlins
former Jewish quarter, the Tacheles was taken over by squatters in 91. Behind the
buildings bombed out façade is a wealth of art studios.  Just opposite youll find delicious French fries served from a dodgy looking
trailer called Beckers Fritten
2.Gendarmenmarkt – Touted by many guidebooks as the prettiest square in Berlin,
Gendarmenmarkt is famous for its two churches – one Protestant, one Catholic – each
built opposite each other by the opposing religion. Not often that happens. TIP:
Fassbender & Rausch, possibly the worlds greatest chocolate shop, is on the corner of
Gendarmenmarkt
3.Kollwitzplatz – Käthe Kollwitz, the famous left-wing, anti-war artist, would no doubt
take great pride that not only is there a square named after her (complete with bronze
statue) but that its one that was once a meeting point for intellectuals and artists during
Prenzlauer Bergs nasty East Germany days. Dont miss Kollwitzplatz`s famous market on
saturdays
Enjoy amazing cakes and delicious coffee at the Anna Blume café on the corner of
Sredzkistrasse and Kollwitzstrasse.
Just round the corner is Rykestrasse Synagogue, Germany’s largest synagogue.
4.Topography of Terror – Back in 1987 a group of students excavated, with little more than their bare hands, the cellars of Berlins former Gestapo and SS headquarters. The Topography of Terror is the fruit of their labour, an open-air exhibition documenting what happens when a totalitarian regime tortures its people to death for fun.
TIP: Pickup a headset from the reception for English audio commentary.
TIP: Next to the Topography of Terror is an excellent art museum called Martin-Gropius-Bau
5.Reichstag- The German parliament building, re-opened in 1999 after the government
and most of the ministries moved from Bonn to Berlin. British architect Lord Norman Foster
redesigned this place, complete with a huge glass dome with public access, so you can
watch the politicians at work.
You can get in for FREE. Try to avoid the queues at the Reichstag, make a reservation at
Kaefers restaurant at the top of the glass dome. This should get you in the side door.
6.Holocaust Memorial- Berlins ultra-controversial memorial for the murdered Jews of
Europe, 2,711 concrete blocks jutting off at offensive and suffocating angles.
Co-incidentally only a stones throw away from the site of Adolf Hitlers former underground
lair, the Führerbunker.
Walk through the memorial, youll quickly realise its not the kind of place you want to have
a summer picnic at.
7.Free Dinner Party at EastSeven Berlin Hostel

Every Monday an Wednesday we cook a vegetarian meal for all our guests, and it is for free!! We even have a happy hour for beer!!
8.Volkspark Friedrichshain -A beautiful park, excellent for jogging or having a picnic or
barbeque. In the middle you’ll find Friedrichshains highest hill, which provides a 78-metre
high view over Berlins flat terrain. The hill was actually man-made to cover up a destroyed
anti-aircraft bunker from World War II, as well as several tonnes of bombed out rubble.
Also you can play beachvolleyball for free here. They have a special area reserved for
beachsports. Its free to use for anyone but you´d have to bring your own equipment.
9.Fleamarket -Sunday is fleamarket day. Close to the hostel (500 m) you find the
Arkonaplatz Fleamarket and the famous Mauerpark fleamarket. If you don´t want to buy
something – no problem, you first of all go there to see all kind of urban subjects with
hangover and even sober ones. Berliners go there – you should as well, and ofcourse
there is no entrance fee here!
10.Brandenburg Gate -Every 10, 20 and 50 cent German Euro coin is minted with a
picture of this big city gate on its reverse side. Stranded in a lonely no-mans land between
1961 and 89 thanks to the East German government, no other structure in Berlin better
symbolises the temporary division of the city. Just go to foot from Unter den Linden and
take a closer look at this immense Gate. This Beautiful sight in Berlin is also admission
free to visit.
Have fun exploring Berlin on a low budget! If you are still looking for a cheap bed in Berlin you are welcome to stay at our cozy hostel in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg!
