With these insider tips about Neukölln in this Berlin City Guide, you are able to explore Berlin as a local! Neukölln is a great neighbourhood – once you know where to go. Neukölln might not be part of your standard itinerary when visiting Berlin. Even when you decide to go ‘off the beaten track’ from the general tourist sights, you might decide to head to Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg. I love these neighbourhoods as well, but when I lived in Berlin two years ago, I discovered how amazing Neukölln is. This article shares my favourite places, restaurants and bars.
Berlin Tempelhof is a former airport in Berlin, which is now a great place to relax. You can enter the runways, do a tour through the former airport, relax in the grass or rent a long board somewhere in the city and longboard the runway.

I’m not sure whether to highlight this as a ‘place to see and visit’ or a bar. Klunkerkranich is located on top of the Neukölln Arcaden shopping mall. Take the elevator to the top floor and walk through the parking lot to arrive at the entrance. The fee to get in is €3 after 16:00. Enjoy your ‘Weizen’ and see the sun setting over Berlin.
If you are in to craft beer, definitely go and visit the Muted Horn. With around 24 beers on tap and who knows how many beers by bottle, you could spend your whole weekend here. I actually haven’t found many places in Europe where to selection is so broad and where many good breweries are present on tap.
The Weserstrasse area is a street with many restaurants and bars, mainly bars though. When you visit the street during the day, you might wonder – is this really a bar street in the evening? But mark my words, you’ll enjoy it.
Monella for pizza
I love the pizza’s at Monella and always take people to this place when I had visitors. The toppings are not your average and the disco ball oven is a great addition.
Gaston’s Tapas Bar for Tapas
Looking for tapas? This is the place! Right at the middle of the Weserstrasse.
Geist am Glass or Roamers for Brunch
Geist am Glass is the perfect place for a boozy brunch! Roamers might be one of the most instagram famous brunch places in Berlin.
Beuster as a proper restaurant
Beuster is the perfect place in Neukölln when you are looking for a proper restaurant.
Lavanderia Vecchia as a quirky Italian
An Italian restaurant in an old laundry saloon, with a great atmosphere.
There are many bars worth visiting and these are my favourite! It is enough for a great bar crawl – don’t expect party bars though.
