Berlin’s district Friedrichshain is trendy and rough, with lots of graffiti and a distinct East German charm and an off-beat alternative culture. It’s very low key, and not yet as commercialized with a big student population, low rents, but also a rich history in working-class roots.
Come and explore this district on a self-guided tour of Friedrichshain. You can follow the tour via Google Maps.

Berlin has a good amount of rain in June, so keep that in mind as you pack. We’ve made a list below of what to bring:
1. Rain Jacket
With about half the days in June expecting rain, it’s a good idea to bright a light rain jacket. Something like this one by EZRUN packs easily and will also keep you dry and warm on chilly or wet days. An umbrella is also suggested.
The best way to make sure you’re comfortable is to pack a sweater for layering on for cooler mornings. A simple pull-on is enough, like this one to go over comfortable cotton tops
3. Long Pants
Long pants and skirts are a good thing to pack. Jeans are a good option, being comfortable to go from chilly morning to a warmer afternoon without being too hot or cold.
