The listed court complex, renovated at great expense in the 1990s has revived this part of Berlin-Mitte, commonly known as Spandauer Vorstadt.
There are nine individual but interconnected courts which accommodate some shops, among others with fashion from young designers and an Ampelmann store, a lot of restaurants and bars with places like Bar Oxymoron for example, and many cultural venues such as a movie theatre or the music hall-theatre Chamäleon. In a nutshell: The courts of Hackesche Höfe are among the top Berlin sights with a large potential for discoveries and new experiences!
- Always open:
- Parking: difficult
- Range of venues: A variety of shops with fashion, jewellery and souvenirs, various trades such as an old print shop, Bar Oxymoron, the music hall-theatre Chamäleon, a movie theatre and the club Sophienclub.
- Languages: The movie theatre there shows many original versions (with subtitles). A lot of English screenings but also movies in French, Arabic, Turkish, Norwegian, Spanish and Polish.
- Barrier-Free: Rather not. Especially accessing the shops in a wheelchair is difficult. In court I there is a disabled toilet.
