Neighborhood: Prenzlauer Berg

This rectangular, leafy square in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg is surrounded by tall buildings, busy outdoor cafes and restaurants. Named after a famous left-wing, anti-war artist Käthe Kollwitz , this was the clandestine meeting place for radicals, intellectuals and artists during the socialist era. Today, the square is one of the most throbbing sites of Berlin, with trendy coffee bars and exclusive restaurants such as Gugelhof, where German Chancellor Schröder once took US President Clinton out to dine. The square has an ambiance that still reminds one of the era of socialistic revolution.
