Nightlife and Entertainment in Kreuzberg

Edit This

Although the beating heart of the nightlife scene changed to ‘Mitte’ when the wall came down, Kreuzberg still has a sparkling nightlife. Whatever type of bar or dancing you’re looking for, there is a fair chance that you’ll find it in this area. Punk, rock ‘n roll, mainstream music, live performances, arty cafes, gay and lesbian bars…. Kreuzberg still has its own scene. West of Oranienstrasse, Tacheles offers cultural life in all its facets. Hackeschen Hofen is where the modern metropolitan heart beats. Oranienburgerstrasse is also better known as a red light and hard drugs district.

NOTE from BERLINER: here "Oranienstrasse" (Kreuzberg) is confused with "Oranienburger Strasse" (Mitte). Tacheles and Hackesche Hofe are in fact in Berlin-MITTE ! (and not in Kreuzberg)! Mitte is in former East-Berlin, while Kreuzberg belongs to former West-Berlin. I personally live in the Oranienburger Strasse in Berlin-Mitte and I know some tourists tend to confuse these locations, so please be aware of this.

SO 36

Edit This

What would Kreuzberg be without SO 36? Considerably worse off.

Varying opening times (usually from 10pm or 11pm) admission: 7-10DM, more for special events.
