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.

Here is the top Airbnbs in Friedrichshain, Berlin to check out for your next trip.
