Hackesche Höfe

On our last day, Mom and I stumbled on this pleasant cluster of courtyards called Hackesche Höfe. It is one of my favorite places in Berlin.

"When the district prospered at the turn of the century and became a respectable address, a man by the name of Quilitz acquired the plot at Rosenthaler Strasse 40 and 41 and Sophienstrasse 6, had the buildings pulled down and a complex with eight rear courtyards built – the largest in Europe. Restaurants, industry, shops and flats were to be built – a colourful mixture which would be easy to find tenants for."

I’d live there if it wasn’t so popular among tourists.
