Like all Kieze in Berlin, Neukölln is a microcosmos on its own and especially for newbies it is easy to lose orientation. To give all the New-Neuköllners amongst you a little direction about what to do in the neighborhood, we have selected a couple of places for you that offer art, culture and relaxation beyond the bigger institutions you find in the city center. Here’s our list:

Neuköllner Oper
Yes, Neukölln has it’s own opera house, and the fact that it is Berlin’s smallest one makes it even more exciting. The opera exists since 1972 and seeks to represent the unique and diverse cultural scene of the capital and the neighborhood.

KINDL - Zentrum für Zeitgenössische Kunst 

The newly established art space in the former Kindl brewery has risen to one of Neukölln’s most important art institutions. KINDL offers carefully selected exhibitions while its café and restaurant “König Otto” is the right place for a coffee or lunch - all foods are Mediterranean style and vegetarian. 

Heimathafen Neukölln
“Heimathafen” was founded in 2009 by a local theater company which intended to establish a new ”folk theater” in Berlin´s most multi-cultural district. Today, the place is more than a theater – it also offers concerts, lectures and new show formats.

Britzer Garten
The Britzer Garten is a relic from a hugely popular gardening show that took place at the outskirts of Berlin in 1985. Today, it is a nice public park offering (floral) exhibitions, themed gardens, landscaped playgrounds and events. With a low entrance fee, it is a more fancy alternative to less well-maintained parks like the vast Tempelhofer Feld.

Werkstatt der Kulturen
This event space close to Hermannplatz seeks to represent the multicultural and migrant Berlin. Located in a beautiful old brewery building, their broad variety of concerts, screenings, studios and rehearsal spaces attracts a very open-minded, mixed crowd. 

If you go and visit one of these places, do let us know! We'd be curious to hear your opinion!
