The „Oberbaumbrücke“ is a remarkable landmark in connection with Kreuzberg, the Frankfurter Tor and the Karl-Marx-Allee are well-known terms for anyone.
The district of different cultures is determined by a relaxed lifestyle and it is considered a quiet residential location for people who appreciate the neighborhood life. Shoppings are mainly done in organic markets and on the popular market on Boxhagen place.
