When German magazines want to illustrate a particularly beautiful street in Berlin, they often end up with a shout out of Gräfekiez. And still, for some reason, this part of the city isn’t on most travel guides. During the evenings, the scenery conjures a mix of Italy and Berlin. At night, the Admiralbrücke Bridge bustles with people noshing on pizza from the nearby Italian restaurant and drinking local brews from the Spätshop convenience stores. You can spend a warm Berlin summer night like an actual Berliner here, listening to music performances and enjoying some good vibes. And if you’re lucky, someone will have moved a piano onto the bridge, too.
