Caught in between left-wing artists and young-preppy Bavarian families, this is a fast-changing neighborhood, where, among new home developments, you can still find alternative theaters and bookshops. There are some wide cobblestone streets with impressive façades, the Altbau, best explored by bike. Kastanienallee is worth walking up and down. Kollwitzplatz is a nice area for brunch (expect baby stroller bottlenecks on weekends). Kulturbrauerei has cinemas, events and food trucks. Mauerpark on weekends is a must, when there is the flea market.
