Schlesische Straße is a street in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. This neighborhood is developing, becoming a fashionable place for young bohemians. In most bars and restaurants there is a terrace for summer days. They are Indian restaurants, Italian, art galleries - soft music lounges, buildings full of graffiti ... It is very lively street at any time. To stay try the hotel XBerger, a hostel from 11 euros per night in low season and a shared dormitory. Schlesische Tor means the door of Schlesische. And it was then a major road leading to the region of Silesia. It remains one of the busiest streets but nothing like Madrid or Barcelona, there are almost never queues and many people go by bike. Kreuzberg is a neighborhood that has developed economically, socially and culturally in recent years.
A fascinating alternative style courtyard, with plenty of graffiti, is just before the famous courtyards Hacke (Die Hackeschen Höfe). Definitely worth visiting. Here see an exhibition about Anne Frank (although she did not live in Berlin), and a museum which we could not enter, but it seemed to be very funny, "Monsterkabinett".
