Escape: Victoriapark & Kreuzberg

Sponsored by Belsazar Vermouth

Have you ever asked yourself, why Kreuzberg is actually named Kreuzberg? Turns out it’s strikingly simple: it’s named after the cross on top of a hill in Victoriapark, located in the south west corner of the borough. In contrary to most of the rare and small “hills” in Berlin – which are mostly high piles of war-rubble – this one’s a natural, glaciation formed hill. Rising 66m above the ground, topped with a Prussian national monument, it’s a perfect place for a sundown-drink with a Belsazar Vermouth. Read on for a chance to win an all-inclusive package of Belsazar.

Sandwich at Mo's Kleiner Imbiss, best Falafel in berlin

Falafel in Kreuzberg: Mo’s Kleiner Imbiss

I’ve written about this place before, but I feel like it still doesn’t receive the love it deserves. This teeny-tiny place on Urbanstraße is the literal definition of hole in the wall: you’ll order at a window facing the street, your food is prepared in a kitchen space that can host two people max, and there are four narrow seats on the street, from where you can watch the fancy roof top terraces on the building across the street. But it is a super delicious falafel, probably the best falafel in Berlin, so don’t miss it.
