Markt am Winterfeldtplatz Grade A groceries

Stretching past the shadow of the St. Matthias Kirche, this beloved Schöneberg mainstay is a magnet for food-fanatics and locals alike, as well as enamouring all chancers who happen upon the twice-weekly hustle and bustle. With a nigh on endless bounty of cheeses, jams, honeys, meats and an abundance of other colorful produce, the joy here is to be had in wondering—indulging in a little (though more likely a lot of) try before you buy.

Aside from a little high-grade grocery shopping, Markt am Winterfeldtplatz is a great spot to grab some lunchtime eats, with Thai soup stalls vying with Pelmeni, fresh smoked fish and gourmet sausage stands for the chance to make their mark on your taste buds. Proceed with caution though—there’s little to stop you going overboard at this Berlin smorgasbord.

Admiralbrücke Kreuzberg nights

The Admiralbrücke is a petite Art Noveau style wrought-iron bridge that joins the Graefe Kiez with Kotti across a particularly picturesque stretch of the Landwehrkanal.

In the summer, the bridge and its adjacent shores come alive with plagues of Kreuzbergians populating every spare cobblestone, all chilling and chatting over some cheap beers from the Spätkauf across the road. An ever changing sideshow of happy-go-lucky buskers—including anything from a Jazz quartet to crazed out maraca shakers—provide an entertaining background scene long into the night.

Over recent years the popularity of the bridge as a gathering spot has caused some hangovers for nearby residents, notably the aftermath of broken glass and the inevitable noise pollution. So forgive us for getting all parentish, but if you do take the chance to enjoy a meeting with friends in one of the city’s most atmospheric spots, be sure to take your mess home with you.
