Hüttenpalast in Kreuzkölln

Explore quirky, creative Kreuzkölln in a hotel with a twist

Discover Berlin in a brand-new way – at the Hüttenpalast Berlin in the heart of the lively Reuterkiez in Kreuzkölln, a hip Berlin neighbourhood nestling between ultra-cool Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Restored vintage motorhomes and homemade huts in a former factory building offer an inspired twist on classic hotel accommodation. The property is as quirky and creative as lively Kreuzkölln itself. Vintage clothes shops, independent cafés and other local highlights are just a short stroll away.

Experience a Berlin city break with a twist at Hüttenpalast Berlin

The Hüttenpalast Berlin can be found in creative, quirky Kreuzkölln – an area on the border between the hip Berlin districts of Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Located in a former vacuum cleaner factory, this off-beat establishment offers bright and modern standard hotel rooms alongside eight lovingly restored vintage campervans and cosy huts in two indoor camping halls – the perfect spot to chat to other guests. The hotel also offers a welcoming breakfast room and a peaceful courtyard and garden. It’s a unique concept for a unique community with a vibrant mix of long-standing Berliners, young people, artists and makers from all over the world.

Reuterkiez – the neighbourhood around lively Reuterplatz – is the perfect gateway from which to discover the wider Kreuzkölln area. It’s packed with cafés and restaurants to explore and while away an afternoon. If you prefer the outdoors, even built-up Neukölln has green space to discover: the vast Volkspark Hasenheide is just 300 m from the hotel, and right behind it stretches the broad expanse of Tempelhofer Feld, the site of a former airport. It’s the ideal spot to jog, cycle and relax.

Kreuzkölln art and culture on your doorstep at the Hüttenpalast Berlin

Kreuzkölln’s cultural scene is as diverse as its community, with offbeat local favourites including the Theater im Keller. Just two minutes’ walk from the hotel, this local institution has been staging incredible drag shows since 1987. Another must-visit is KINDL – a contemporary arts centre situated in Neukölln’s former Kindl brewery where you’ll find changing exhibitions with impressive large-scale installations. On hot summer nights, check out the Hasenheide open-air cinema, and when the weather turns less pleasant, head indoors to City Bowling Hasenheide, a bowling hall that’s been a fixture of the local area for over five decades.

A different divide: Landwehrkanal and Maybachufer

Visitors to Berlin might be familiar with the border between east and west – but in Kreuzkölln, you’ll find a divide with a difference: the Landwehrkanal. This waterway, just 600 m from the Hüttenpalast Berlin hotel, marks the boundary between the Kreuzberg and Neukölln districts of Berlin. Quaint side streets with magnificent old buildings fan out from the canal on both banks – the Maybachufer on the Neukölln side and the Paul-Lincke-Ufer in Kreuzberg. Either is the perfect place to while away a summer’s day, strolling and listening to street musicians or people-watching at little cafés. One incredible pitstop is Brammibal’s Donuts – a donut shop famous for its homemade vegan masterpieces, as well as its coffee. Across the water, you can enjoy authentic Neapolitan pizza straight from the wood-fired oven from Pizzeria ZOLA.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, you’ll find a market with a Middle Eastern feel on the Maybachufer, also known as the Turkish market: it sells all kinds of Turkish products, as well as fruit, vegetables and fabric. A visit to this popular market is well worth your while – if only to sample the tasty snacks from the different stalls. You’ll find local organic produce from Neukölln and much more at this fixture of the local weekly calendar.

As the sun goes down, you can settle in at Ankerklause, a long-established bar on Kottbusser bridge, about a kilometre from the hotel, and watch people come and go on Kottbusser Damm. If you’re looking for somewhere a little more lively, check out Klunkerkranich on Karl-Marx-Straße – this popular rooftop bar, playing host to regular live DJs, can be found perched on a leafy shared roof garden atop a shopping centre.
