Prenzlauer Berg

From windmill hill to tenement quarter to “in” neighborhood

Although, relatively speaking, Prenzlauer Berg is newer neighborhood, it has had an eventful history. Spread over a hillside that was once covered with windmills, and country fields, the area developed into to one of the most densely populated in Berlin during the Wilhelminian era.

From the tenements of the imperial age to the part of town where, even in the GDR era, the rebel, the odd ball, and the bohemian found a place to call home; as he facades decayed, a colorful sub culture began to bloom. From the wild days after the fall of the wall, when a new club opened practically every week, to the gentrified, yuppified, and chic quarter it has now become; hardly any other neighborhood has experienced so much upheaval and change. We show you the thrilling side of Prenzlauer Berg.

The starting point is the “kulturbrauerei” where our bike tours also begin. Additional stops include: the synagogue in the Rykerstraße, the Oderberger straße and the Pfefferberg.
