Walk through Scheunenviertel

Hackesche Höfe, New Synagogue and Clärchens Ballhaus - Scheunenviertel in Mitte has lots of sights to discover which can be explored on foot with your parents.


The Scheunenviertel or Spandauer Vorstadt, like the neighbourhood around Hackescher Markt is called, used to be centre of Jewish life in Berlin before National Socialsm rose to power. Many houses were destroyed during World War II but it's still possible to walk its history.

For example Haus Schwarzenberg, in direct vicinity of Hackesche Höfe, is the location of the Anne Frank Museum. The New Synagogue, opened in 1866, details with an exhibition of Jewish life in the neighbourhood. And in the former Jewish Girls' School is next to the award-winning restaurant Pauly Saal also the deli „Mogg und Melzer“, which may easily serve the best Pastrami sandwiches outside of New York.

On top of all that there are more sights in the neighbourhood like Clärchens Ballhaus with its lovely little beer garden and it's mirror ballroom, the Chamäleon Varieté or KW Institute, the gallery of modern art and organizers of the Berlin Biennale.
