http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kreuzberg

Kreuzberg is located to the south of Mitte, and is one of the most famous districts in Berlin, Germany. It has evolved from being one of the poorest areas in West Berlin to a cultural centre of the unified city. Most of its inhabitants are immigrants, many of which are of Turkish origin. While the river Spree flows alongs the district’s eastern boundary, the Landwehrkanal offers the opportunity of lovely walks along it. You can enjoy a walk in one of the two larger green areas, Gorlitzer Park and Viktoriapark. Public transport is well-developed all through the district, there are U-Bahn stations all over the district and also bus stops. The district’s name means cross hill, and it comes from a higher elevation area which has traditionally been a place for weekend outings. Among the many restaurants here, there is a monument in Viktoriapark, which commemorates the Napoleonic Wars. Enclosed by the Berlin Wall on three sides, the district became famous for its alternative lifestyle. Even today, it is one of the European districts with the youngest population. It has been home to the Berlin punk rock movement and other subcultures in Germany. The SO36 club is a famous Berlin venue for new artists, and it sticks to its punk tradition even today. Iggy Pop and David Bowie frequently came here, and the club used to be a rival to New York’s CBGB. Influenced by the African-American population, the area has also become a centre for rap and breakdance. You will see plenty of interesting graffiti and enjoy a visit to this hub of avant-garde galleries. Every year, the district hosts a festival called Carnival of Cultures celebrating the diversity of cultures with street parades, music and art and craft stalls. Reihenberger street is one of the interesting place to visit, due to its funky shops, cafes and bars. The restaurants in the area are a token of the multicultural characteristic of the place, offering food from all over the world.
