The quarter on the banks of the Spree river, though not one of the capital’s most beautiful districts, does have much to offer and is inspiring with its naughty, friendly spirit. Lordly old buildings on quiet backstreets are interwoven with practical, yet styleless 50-year-old structures to create delightful small alleys along the water, with Istanbul’s exuberant flair. Embraced by the Spree, famous for the central railway station - these are Moabit’s hallmarks. Where else would one find a house, guarded by a dozen cherubs, the best shawarma in town and Berlin’s oldest confectionery? Obviously only here - because “Moabit is the best”.
