The picturesque old buildings have been lovingly restored in this district, so that they are a delight for every eye. Despite the numerous street cafés and restaurants, it is hard to get a table on warm summer evenings. Savoir-vivre is the mantra displayed in Prenzlauer Berg. The sculpture 'Mutterliebe' by Kollwitz on Kollwitzplatz is an ideal symbol for the area, which is dominated by many young mothers. The ecological market on Saturdays has a great location between inviting street cafés and is also very popular with celebrities. The water tower and its surrounding park are idyllic now, but area also monuments to Nazi crimes. During the National Socialist period, the machine house attached to the water tower served as a concentration camp.
