Located between Schöneberg and Tiergarten (a few hundred metres away from Potsdamer Platz), this historical neighbourhood was once the epicenter of the Berlin art scene. After decades of oblivion from its own glamorous history, it is once again the home of the Avant-Garde, with some of Berlin’s best contemporary art galleries, cafes and shops coexisting with long-settled businesses and residents.
Here is a selection of the Darklands’ team favourite places nearby.
