Falckensteinstraße is located in the well-known Wrangelkiez in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. It runs from Oberbaumbrücke to Görlitzer Park, crossing Wrangelstraße and Schlesische Straße. Kreuzberg is famous mainly for its lively scene and multicultural diversity. Colorful, shrill and cosmopolitan, Kreuzberg shows itself every year in the spring by the Carnival of Cultures, which attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world.
Due to its location on the Spree, there is hardly a place in Berlin where you can relax so well and at the same time end your evening in a club or outdoor location, as in Kreuzberg. The Oberbaumbrücke, which connects Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg across the Spree, becomes a party mile at night and is a popular destination for night owls. From the legendary club Watergate, whose large window front offers a magnificent view of the river, to the Lido, one of the top addresses for indie rock or electro parties.
Kreuzberg is not only a popular residential area for party seekers. Various leisure facilities and parks, such as the Viktoriapark with its impressive waterfall, also provide relaxation here after an eventful day at work. The countless restaurants, bars and pubs also make Kreuzberg a lively place. You can enjoy hot meals here until well after midnight, because as the saying goes, “Kreuzberg nights are long.”
More and more Berliners and new Berliners also enjoy and appreciate the charm of the once disreputable district, where no one wanted to live.
