Which District of Berlin Are You?
From Prenzlauer Berg to Mitte, to Treptrow – Berlin is an eclectic mash-up of different districts. Each has its own personality. The question is, which one are you?
You’re a serious individual with a complex past. These days, you have a love for culture, high and low. Delayed gratification is the name of the game. You shun instant coffee, and can probably quote Proust. You like good wine, and good conversation, preferably whilst walking round an independent gallery.
Mitte: at the heart of Berlin, Mitte is full space jostling with heritage sites, museums, and memorials. High fashion collides with partial renovations in this fascinatingly ambivalent space.
If life’s a journey, you’re prepared to take the road less travelled. You’re an individual and you like your space. Yes, you love catching up with friends, but you’re also happy to curl up with a good book or film.
Treptow: A bit of a distance from the centre, Treptow is a space of walkers and cylists. It neighbours Treptow Park, full of green spaces and a chance to get some headspace.
You’re a rebel at heart, and embrace any counter-culture you can find. You like to be the centre of attention, and light up whatever room you enter. Always surrounded by a group of friends, you’re less interested in the sheer sheer excitement of the moment than you are in enjoying the social and emotional connections you make with others.
Kreuzberg: A grafitti-spashed cosmopolitcan, full of late-night cafes, vintage shops. At night the streets glare with neon signs advertising everything from hookah pipes to taxi ranks.
You embrace the YOLO ideology: life is short, and and you’re going to make the most of it. You’re exuberent, energetic and love to embrace life’s intensity – both the highs and the lows. You don’t stay up late, you stay up until dawn.
Friedrichshain: this buzzing district in east Berlin is full of painfully cool bars, clubs, pubs, and cafes. You head for the streets at 11pm on Friday and get spat out again on Monday morning.
