Bergmannstraße is the most famous street in the district of Kreuzberg and the center of the "Bergmannkiez" between Südstern and Mehringdamm.
History of the Bergmannstraße
The Bergmannstraße was named after Marie Luise Bergmann, who owned land around the street. Before the street received the name of the large landowner, it was called Weinbergsweg, because at the beginning of the 19th century, vineyards stretched up to the Tempelhofer Berg.
The Bergmannstraße is a lively and multicultural promenade popular with Berliners and tourists. Many small stores are lined up Cafés, exotic restaurants and bars.
Sights in the Bergmannstraße
Worth seeing are the true to original restored house facades from the Wilhelminian period in and around the Bergmannstraße. At Marheinekeplatz is the market hall XI, also called Marheineke-Halle
. From 1892 onwards, items of daily use were sold here. During the Second World War, the hall was almost completely destroyed. When the market hall was rebuilt, preserved parts of the facade could be inserted into the new building. Today the Marheineke-Halle offers a variety of small stands with regional food, delicatessen and gastronomic offers. On weekends a flea market
is held in front of the hall.
Behind the market hall XI in the direction of Südstern are the churchyards Bergmannstraße. The four adjacent cemeteries are among the oldest and most important cemeteries in Berlin. Visitors can walk from one to the other through wall openings.
