Berlin Prenzlauer Berg Neighbourhood Guide

Mitte was once the coolest suburb of Berlin but as the big brands move in, Mitte is losing its edge and Prenzlauer Berg is starting to become the place to be. Wider streets, easy transport, a young population and growing list of cafes and great eateries make it an ideal base for a Berlin visit. It's a short tram ride down to central Mitte but at the same time you can experience life in Berlin's laid back and hot new suburb.
