This another popular area for tourists and Berliners, it is really part of the Pankow Bezirk. It is among the most famous neighborhoods for a reason. It remained relatively untouched during the Second World War with many of its elegant old architecture intact. Swift gentrification has transformed it from a ghetto to one of the richest areas in Berlin full artisanal shops, and breweries. It is also a popular spot for young up-and-coming professionals with kids. You can frequently see them with strollers visiting numerous organic ice-cream shops, kids’ cafes and playgrounds, especially around Kollwitzplatz and Kastanienallee.
