Part of the hipster lifestyle includes having an eclectic taste in music, whether it be indie or in Kreuzberg’s case, punk rock. This neighbourhood is know for its historic punk rock culture that still today emanates through its streets. During the day, hipsters cool down by the neighbourhood’s floating pool, because any other pool is too mainstream. While at night, punks and hipster alike, hit the clubs for some headbanger music.

9. Malasaña — Madrid, Spain
