AN INSIDER’S GUIDE: Kreuzberg, the creative heart of Berlin

March 15, 2019

Spend a day exploring the Berlin neighbourhood that inspired our bold aviator frame, Kreuzberg.

Hidden down a residential street, The Five Elephant Cafe is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning cup comfortably seated at one of their sidewalk tables, just steps away from the buzz of the Keiz.

Contemporary art meets brutalist architecture at the König Gallerie at St. Agnes Church. Founded by then 21-year-old Johann König in 2002, the prominent program is known for its focus on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches in a variety of media. König took over the former Catholic complex of St Agnes and started an impressive restoration at the hand of architect Arno Brandlhuber transforming the massive windowless structure into an impressive large-scale exhibition space.
