A Day in Prenzlauer Berg

Morning

Set off from U-Bahn station Senefelderplatz – one of the lively spots in Prenzlauer Berg. From here, explore the old tenement blocks and backyards. Now continue in a westerly direction along Fehrbelliner Straße to Zionskirchplatz with its eponymous church. There are numerous cafés on the square, such as Kapelle, where you could stop for a capuccino. Continue along Zionskirchstraße, then turn left into Kastanienallee. This is one of the most colourful streets in the quarter. At the end of the street you could pop into Prater ; now turn right into Oderberger Straße, one of the best preserved streets of the district. Continue along Sredzkistraße in an easterly direction until you reach Husemannstraße. Have a good look around the Old Berlin streets, you may find something interesting to buy.

Afternoon

You could have lunch at one of the many restaurants in Kollwitzplatz : Gugelhof and Zander are both worth recommending. Continue along Knaackstraße to the small Synagoge Rykestraße. From here it is only a few paces to the Wasserturm in Knaackstraße. Give your feet a rest on the small green space around the tower, before continuing along Belforter and Kollwitzstraße to Schönhauser Allee. You will find perfect tranquillity there in the Jewish Cemetery.
