1. Generator Hostel | The precast concrete building in blue and white looks so GDR that the futuristic hostel bar seems out of place even in daylight. The hostel draws a young crowd into the ageing Kiez | Storkower Strasse 160 |

2. Syringenplatz Park | The green opening offers a quiet, shaded spot for a break| On the corner of Syringenweg / Syringenplatz

3. Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg | A mountain of rubble from World War II in the 1950s and 1960s, today the Volkspark is a place to relax and play. One part of the park is wildly vegetated, criss-crossed by walks and pathways whereas the northern section is mostly meadows where you can hang out under the Berlin summer sun | Entrances Sigridstraße, Schneeglöckchenstraße, and Süderbrokweg |

4. Kleingartenanlage "Neues Heim" | This allotment site of tiny gardens seems an idyllic world and an extension of the park where other non-gardeners stroll through on their way from A to B | KGA Grönland |

5. Daniels | The area between the Volkspark and the cemetery offers few restaurants and cafés, but this small snack bar's drinks, ice cream and reasonably priced meat dishes are a blessing after a long walk | Northern end of Kniprodestraße

6. Carl Müller Gummiwarenfabrik | Known today as Puccini Hofgärten with modern apartments, lofts and townhomes, from 1898 to 1994 this factory produced all sorts of rubber goods | Puccinistraße, on the corner of Herbert-Baum-Straße |

7. Jüdischer Friedhof Berlin-Weißensee | Established in 1880, Europe's largest historic Jewish cemetery is the final resting place for more than 100,000 people. Take a quiet walk in the cemetery's awe-inspiring and peaceful beauty | Markus-Reich-Platz 1 |

8. Volkspark Friedrichshain | Probably the most popular and definitely the most varied park in eastern Berlin offers cafés, wide meadows, sports facilities, an open air movie theater, a rose garden, a climbing wall, war memorials, and quiet corners in the shade as well as a cruising zone at night. Little of the original plan from 1848 survived World War II, but mountains of rubble were built from two demolished bunkers | Danziger Straße between Kniprodestraße and Landsberger Allee |

9. Velodrom | Designed and built by a French star architect in 1997 for Berlin's bid for the Olympic games, the building's exterior is used by walkers whilst on the inside spinners perfect their sport. | Paul-Heyse-Straße 26 |

10. Schwimm- und Sprunghalle im Europa-Sportpark | Sunken in the landscape just as the adjacent Velodrom, this sports facility is open to amateur swimmers and divers and offers a direct view of the Ringbahn rolling by | Paul-Heyse-Straße 26 |
