Kollwitzplatz is a city square in the Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg, district of Pankow. The square forms the center of the so-called "Kollwitzkiez". It was named on October 7, 1947, after the German graphic artist and sculptor Käthe Kollwitz, who spent a large part of her life here in the house at Weissenburger Straße No. 25 (destroyed in the war, since 1947 property Kollwitzstraße No. 56a). Until then, it was called Wörther Platz; a name that was given to it when the area was planned for construction in 1875. Indirectly, this name is also a reminder of his husband Karl Kollwitz, who worked here as a physician until 1940 and thus shaped the area around the square independently of his wife. The triangular complex is bordered by Kollwitzstraße, Knaackstraße and Wörther Straße (with Husemannstraße branching off from it). In total, the square is about 6000 m2 in size.Our Berlin trip itinerary app makes visiting Kollwitzplatz and other Berlin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

On Thursdays, there is a street fair full of options for you. There one guy, I call him Pasta Guy. He’s going to make fresh pasta dough in front of you, cook it and serve with the most amazing truffles straight from Italy. Each black truffle gram is 1€, starting at a minimum of 5 grams. But I assure you it’s totally worth it. Get some wine to accompany the amazing pasta you just got. There is a wine stand with great white wine for lunch time. Finish the experience with a great espresso. There is a coffee stand near the pasta guy, and coffee there is also pretty good.
The Saturday local market is always so lovely and so Berlin-style. Here you can enjoy the vibes of Prenzlauer Berg and see how normal life is, far from the chaos and the flashy lights of the main tourist attractions. It doesn't matter if you want to purchase something or just have a look, the atmosphere is always very relaxed, spontaneous and easy.
