Spotlight on a neighbourhood - Hufelandstrasse

We are usually dashing up this street to get to our weekly music class at The Center but last week I took some time to look about.

This street has masses of interesting individual shops and restaurants, and there is definitely a bit of a Scandi influence. (I heard that when the area was renovated lots of Danes and Swedes moved in and the shops do seem to reflect their tastes)

There are lots of bio (organic) shops both on this street and the adjacent section of Griefswalder Strasse. It may be a bit gentrified for some but I love the atmosphere here. This family friendly neighbourhood is definitely worth an explore plus it is very close to Friedrichshain Park.
