Water tour built in 1877 and in use till 1952. It contained apartments for its workers that are still occupied to-day. Striking building located in a charming area of Prenzlauer Berg near Kollwitzplatz.
Although this place is called "water tower", in fact, it's a cistern or water catchment that has been buried to form a hill that is public green space with nice views of the surrounding neighborhood. It's quite a pleasant spot for a stroll to look...More
The oldest in Berlin. Completed in 1877 and in use until 1952.
Used in Nazi times by the SA as a concentration camp, for those interned without trial and murdered.
Underground parts are used for exhibitions
Lots of nice cafes and lunch places in the triangular square opposite! If you want to relax and be away from the crowds come here!!!
Thank Ashuveen L

No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
