Fodor's Expert Review Leopoldplatz

Wedding Plaza/Square

The spiritual and commercial heart of Wedding, this square is anchored by churches: the Alte Nazareth Kirche (designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the 1830s, when the square was first developed) and the Neue Nazarethkirche, erected in the 1890s. Long considered the center of one of the city’s most downtrodden areas, Leopoldplatz has received a makeover, and the area’s residents find it a welcome respite from some of Berlin’s more hip and hyped districts. The square is a good starting point for a neighborhood stroll: you'll find beautiful (though still slightly run down) turn-of-the-century buildings, residential parks, and interesting multicultural (or multi-kulti) shops and cafés.
