Meet the Neighbors: Prenzlauer Berg & Friedrichshain

As neighbors themselves, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain couldn’t be more different! Once home to East Berlin’s punk scene, Prenzlauer Berg has completely transformed itself into a comfortably yuppie neighborhood of cafés and markets, boutiques and baby strollers. Friedrischain, on the other hand, is a neighborhood with a bit of a split personality: Some blocks are a hotbed of anti-establishmentarianism and squat houses; others are lined with trendy eateries and EasyJetsetters.
