New Architecture in Kreuzberg

Traces of the Berlin Wall

For almost thirty years, the Berlin Wall ran as an insurmountable border between the two Berlin districts of Kreuzberg and Mitte. In 1990, it was demolished, leaving behind large inner-city wastelands. Today, there is an exciting mix of forward-looking projects to discover in the area around this former no-man’s land. The route along the former Wall strip begins at the historically rich Kunstquartier Bethanien on Mariannenplatz. On the way to the former border crossing at Heinrich-Heine-Strasse are numerous contemporary residential and commercial buildings, two buildings by the Taut brothers and a forgotten subway station. Passing the remaining traces of a market hall and the Aufbauhaus on Moritzplatz, the tour finally ends at the new commercial hot spot beyond Oranienplatz.
