What you need to know about Neukölln
Neukölln is renowned for its lively mix of the old and new. This excitingly bustling borough is full of contrasts – from its estates of detached houses in the south to the high-rises in the Gropiusstadt neighbourhood and a vibrant multicultural area around the border to Kreuzberg.
Above all, though, Neukölln is home to people from around the world – as you can easily tell from your choice of street food! Here, the veggie burritos are nestling next to Basque specialities, while US burger outlets rub shoulders with Arabian bakeries, Vietnamese snack bars and upscale restaurants – and yes, Neukölln has those too! For some years, fans of authentic Italian cuisine have raved about the Lavanderia Vecchia, located in an old laundry in the Schiller neighbourhood. Or you could pamper yourself (and your taste buds!) with the fine flavours of sophisticated German-French fusion at the Eins 44 restaurant in a stylishly revamped old distillery.
