    Description

    Between Kreuzberg and Hallesches Tor

    In reference to its former zip code, the larger Western part of Berlin-Kreuzberg is commonly called Kreuzberg 61. A monument reminding of the Wars of Liberation has been towering over the highest elevation of the former »Tempelhofer Vorstadt« (suburb) since 1821. »Kreuzberg« (literally: cross-hill) was founded in 1920 and supposedly got its name from the Iron Cross at the tip of this monument.

    A large number of Gründerzeit tenements shapes the neighborhood until today. Unlike other parts of Berlin, the area between Hallesches Tor and Viktoriapark survived the bombings of WWII relatively unharmed. In the course of area rehabilitations, a greater part of the well-preserved building stock fell victim to a rigorous demolition policy starting in the 1960s and lasting up until the late 1970s.

    Fortunately, residents opposed this policy and succeeded in saving a large number of the meanwhile heritage-protected buildings from this urban clear cutting. The squatting era is over. Despite the prevailing gentrification, the neighborhood around Bergmannstraße is still marked by an alternative multiculturalism.
