    Bergmannstraße Churchyards

Bergmannstraße is a multicultural boulevard with Wilhelminian charm and many international stores, cafés and restaurants.

Bergmannstraße is the most famous street in the district of Kreuzberg and the center of the Bergmann-Kiez between Südstern and Mehringdamm. The boulevard is popular with Berliners and visitors because of its lively, multicultural atmosphere and its array of small stores, vintage and antique shops, restaurants, bars and cafés.

History of Bergmannstraße

The Bergmannstraße was named after Marie Luise Bergmann, who owned land around the street. Before the street received the name of the landowner it was called Weinbergsweg ("vineyard road" in English) because at the beginning of the 19th century, vineyards stretched all the way up to Tempelhofer Berg.

Sights and Attractions on and around Bergmannstraße

The area surrounding Bergmannstraße is famous for its beautiful old residential buildings featuring restored original facades from the Wilhelminian period. The Marheineke Market Hall on Marheinekeplatz is a popular destination for foodies. From 1892 onwards, items of daily use were sold here. During the Second World War, the market hall was almost completely destroyed. When it was rebuilt, preserved parts of the original facade could be inserted into the new building. Today, the Marheineke Market Hall houses a variety of stands offering regional foods and delicatessen as well as Italian, Asian, Spanish, French, Greek, vegetarian and vegan specialties. On weekends, a flea market takes place in front of the market hall.

Behind the market hall, in the direction of Südstern, are the Bergmannstraße Churchyards. The four adjacent graveyard are among the oldest and most important cemeteries in Berlin. Visitors can walk from one yard to the other through openings in the separating walls.
