Districts like Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg are host to numerous ornate and historic cafés which serve to remind you of Berlin's glamorous past. One of the last places you would expect to find such an exquisite establishment is on Karl-Marx-Straße, working-class Neukölln's shabby shopping street. Here, hidden away in a courtyard behind the main road, is a glorious hall decorated with golden stucco, marble statues and large, gilt-edged mirrors. Built in the 19th century, this former dance hall was rescued from demolition in the 1980s and transformed into a café. A meeting place for coffee-lovers and art enthusiasts, Café Rix is also popular with visitors to the next-door Saalbau.
