Nice to walk along this street with typical DDR buildings. Start at Warschauer Strasse to end near Alexander Platz

If you want to see a show-piece of the Soviet era, simply view the buildings on Karl Marx Allee across the major 2 mile stretch (as well as the area around it). The buildings are a stark reminder of the very drab architecture of the...More

If I have well understood, this very long and very wide avenue has been built by the Russians after 1945. There isn't much to see but this transport you really in Russia. Big dull buildings. I have appreciated the style, my kids less. Unfortunately, it's...More

As soon as we got out of the U-Bahn there was a lady behind my husband, lurking and clearly trying to pick-pocket. The architecture was interesting and it was worth taking a wander down here however it felt very deprived in places with large groups...More

Ok. Let's get some perspective. It's just a street. It's got apartments in. But wow. I thought the communist layout and architecture were fantastic, as well as the fountain half way along. From the Khrushchev prefabs nearer Alex Platz to the magnificent Stalin architecture as...More

When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of
the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party
hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is
palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter
are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may
find a bar with international crowds, electronic
music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other,
an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit
