In Berlin, you’ll find all kinds of fascinating things, historically and creatively. Friedrichshain is a host to many creative communities that use the very buildings of this beautiful neighborhood as their own canvas. By entering this funky, alternative neighborhood, you’ll get to see political murals covering the East Side Gallery, the history of the Soviet-era buildings that line Karl-Marx-Allee, and even a preserved section of the famous and historic Berlin Wall.
Rather than living in a big chain hotel while you peruse these streets, there are plenty of cool and authentic Airbnbs within Friedrichshain that put you in touch with the locals and have you living like a local yourself! Here is the top Airbnbs in Friedrichshain, Berlin to check out for your next trip.
