Friedrichshain merged with Kreuzberg, the neighbour district in 2001 and hence the district is also referred as “Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg”. The western part of the districts has buildings with concrete slab constructions, while the eastern part has historic buildings of the Wilhelminian time. Karl-Marx-Allee and Frankfurter Allee are in the central location and hence apartments in the stalinistic buildings are in high demand. The apartments in the huge condos have practicable cuts and are easily accessible through public transportation system (BVG) and in proximity to many restaurant and cafés.
Friedrichshain is well connected with Ostbahnhof, the major station of former East Berlin. Warschauer Straße is another important connection point and the closest stop from Friedrichshain to Kreuzberg. Friedrichshain is well connected through extensive tram network, which is a step up from bus, as well as the S- and U-Bahn lines. On the contrary, Kruezberg has a few connection points on the tram network, while it is easy to get to and around via S- and U-Bahn lines or bus.
Bergmannstraße is easily accessible off the U6 at Mehringdamm and for upmarket Kreuzkölln area, get off the U8 at Schönleinstraße or Hermannplatz stations. SO36, Kottbusser Tor is the ideal leaping off point for Erster Mai or the best Turkish food in the city.
