    The Hackesche Höfe are a central point of contact for the Berlin scene and for tourists - a mixture of offices, hip trades and apartments. Here and in the immediate vicinity you will find numerous bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs as well as a small cinema.

    Since there are hardly any parking spaces around the courtyards, the best way to get here is by public transport.

    “The Hackesche Höfe in Mitte house a mixture of shops, culture and nightlife in a historic building ensemble.
    The Hackesche Höfe belong to an extensive old town district that has no equal in Berlin: the Spandauer Vorstadt, north of Alexanderplatz. The eight interconnected courtyards between Rosenthaler Straße and Sophienstraße were renovated in 1993 for 80 million marks and are now a popular meeting place for trendy people, night owls and tourists with their many shops, galleries and restaurants and clubs.

    In front of the Hackesche Höfe
    The area of today's Hackesche Höfe, north of Alexanderplatz, was outside the city walls at the end of the 17th century. There were numerous barns for storing straw and hay, as it was forbidden to store them inside the city walls due to the fire risk. The term Scheunenviertel comes from this time and has been used for the area around the Hackesche Höfe.

    The Hackesche Markt is created
    Around 1700, many people settled in the area in front of the city walls; the Spandau suburb with its own church was built. In 1731, at the behest of the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm I, the city wall was expanded. Now the Spandau suburb belonged to Berlin. The Hackesche Markt was created according to plans by city commander Hans Christoph Graf von Hacke, who was to develop open spaces in this area. Today's Hackesche Markt was created.

    Jewish life around the Hackescher Markt
    In the following years the area experienced an influx of Jewish and French immigrants. The first synagogue was built and the Jewish cemetery on Grosse Hamburger Strasse was built. The synagogue still standing on Oranienburger Strasse was built in 1866. "

    Wouldn't exactly recommend to ride through there (especially on market days) but yes, a place where you always find food, street artists and public transport. ;-)

    "Opening of the Hackesche Höfe 1906
    Directly opposite the Hackescher Markt in 1906 the Hackesche Höfe were opened after several years of construction. The complex of eight courtyards was designed and built by the architect Kurt Berndt as the largest residential and commercial property in Germany. The idea behind the architecture of the Hackesche Höfe was the close interlocking of the functions of the courtyards: the buildings of the first courtyard were used only culturally, the following commercial and in the other courts were intended only rental apartments. August Endell designed the first courtyard with an attractive Art Nouveau façade.

    Hackesche Höfe in World War II
    During the Second World War, the Hackesche Höfe were partially destroyed. After a renovation, the entire complex was listed as a historical monument in 1977. During the German division, the Hackesche Höfe became a people's property and not maintained. Thus, the facades gradually fell into decay. After the turn of the Hackesche Höfe 1993 were restored for 80 million marks.

    Today's use of Hackesche Höfe
    Since then, the Hackesche Höfe belong again to the sights of Berlin. The inhabited courtyards are closed every evening, while the front courtyards remain open with their diverse users. In addition to many offices, the farms are home to numerous small shops, restaurants, a cinema and a vaudeville.

    A beautiful market consisting of 8 inner courtyards offers many delicacies, toys, traffic light men and much more.
    Unfortunately, it is often very full.
