Cohesive diversity sounds counterintuitive, but it’s the unifying characteristic of Neukölln. Often referred to as “Little Istanbul,” Neukölln brims with Turkish specialties, but cumin-flavored delicacies are only part of this southeast Berlin neighborhood’s appeal. Artists congregate in Neukölln's reimagined public parks and easy-going bars that invite fierce self-expression and late night philosophizing. This progressive-leaning neighborhood’s busy streets and graffiti-covered surfaces look intimidating, but underneath its brusque exterior is a community based on shared support.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
