The north easterly Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg is widely regarded as one of the most fashionable in the capital and has a distinctly bohemian atmosphere making it popular with the city’s ‘it’ crowd. The area is bursting with stylish restaurants, artisan coffee shops, kitsch gift shops and traditional pubs, making it one of the city’s favourite entertainment and nightlife hotspots. Art lovers will also appreciate the number of independent contemporary galleries which can be found in the area.
Just a short walk from the hotel is the Friedrichshain district which sits upon the banks of the great River Spree. Whilst in the area hotel guests are advised to pay a visit to the internationally renowned East Side Gallery; a 1.3 km preserved section of the former Berlin Wall which has been turned into an outdoor art project. Consisting of 105 paintings commissioned in 1990 after the collapse of the former border which separated east and west, the gallery is one of the capital’s most visited historic attractions and a must-see for those truly seeking to experience Berlin’s turbulent past. Hotel guests are also free to relax and unwind in the Volkspark Friedrichshain after a long day of sightseeing, one of the largest and the oldest of Berlin’s public parks.
Prenzlauer Berg is conveniently connected via the S-Bahn stations of Prenzlauer Allee and Berlin Griefswalder Strasse, allowing hotel guests to access Berlin’s central Mitte district with ease. Dominating the city skyline is the famous Fernsehturm TV tower in Alexanderplatz, the tallest structure in Germany at an impressive 368 metres. The tower’s viewing platform is open to the public to admire unrivalled panoramic views over Berlin and visitors can even dine in the Telecafe restaurant which rotates 360° every 30 minutes. Alexanderplatz is also home to the iconic World Clock, majestic Neptunbrunnen fountain and the Die Mitte shopping mall.
