The city district of Prenzlauer Berg is part of the amalgamation of the former Berlin districts or boroughs Weißensee, Pankow and Prenzlauer Berg. At first, there was no shortage of protests - former residents of all three districts feared to lose part of their cultural identity with the three quite different districts merging together. However,today the arrangement has been accepted and people even got used to the idea of calling the newly created district by the chosen name Pankow. After all, everyone will remain who he or she has always been - and I am and will always be a 'kid of the Prenzlberger Kiez
'. This website is dedicated to my 'kiez
', Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg.
