Prenzlauer Berg - walking tour

One reason that the Berlin Wall fell first in Bornholmer Strasse is probably that the residents of Prenzlauer Berg have always distinguished themselves from the other districts and organized themselves in a special way.

In no other East Berlin district lived so many people who were "different". In addition to the small worker, artists, homosexuals, punks, squatters and of course many opposition members lived here in their neighborhood.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the picture changed very quickly. The destruction during the war was kept within limits and in the GDR one set on new buildings in the wheel districts. Thus it happened that the many beautiful buildings were found unrenovated but in their original condition and could then be renovated.

Since 1989, a lot has happened, many of the "original residents" have disappeared. The new residents of Prenzlauer Berg are people who can afford the now high rents and young families. Today Prenzlauer Berg is the district with the most children in Berlin. On our walk we show you why so many want to live here. We present you residential ensembles that are still unrenovated as well as the "hip" streets and squares in Prenzlauer Berg. A tour in the change of time, with a small coffee break in the neighborhood and, except Sundays, a currywurst at famous Imbiss Konnopke.
