What used to be grim during the DDR days (when it was called Marz-Engel-Platz), Hackescher Markt has been gentrified within an inch of its life and has become a bustling square filled with cafes and restaurants. There are good places to eat here, and during the summer it's a lovely place to grab a pizza and beer whilst people watching. Don't miss die Hackeschen Höfe courtyards (http://www.gogobot.com/hackeschen-hofe-berlin-attraction), and the market on Saturday mornings can be lovely.
If you're looking to explore Berlin, this can be a good place to start. A walk to the north will take you up Rosenthaler Straße to the lovely Kastanienallee and Mauerpark and up into Prenzlauer Berg; a walk to the east will take you over to Alexanderplatz; heading south will take you to Museum Island; and a walk to the west will take you up to the restaurants and cafes of Oranienburger Straße.

This market was restored and turned out to be one great place to go if you like alternative shops, caffes and art galleries. The surrounding area from the Haeckesher Hoef is great to find small nice caffes.

A great place for food and entertainment. This square has 2 sides filled with restaurants and bars. They have more tables outside the inside where you can lounge in the sun after lunch, dinner or a drink.A lot better choice and quality then around the cathedral and the museum insel. Some days of the week there is also a market, which is fun.
