Falkensee in Brandenburg has experienced a real boom in recent years. Located in the idyllic Havelland region just outside Berlin, the green town on Falkenhagener See is a real family paradise with lots of nature, a growing cultural scene and an excellent infrastructure. And the capital is only a stone’s throw away.
Idyll with a city view
Falkensee lies on the city border to Spandau and, with 45,000 inhabitants, it is the largest town in the green and water-rich Havelland region. As part of Berlin’s “Speckgürtel”, Falkensee is a popular, dynamic and rapidly growing as a new development location in the western Berlin suburbs. Accordingly, many new properties for sale and rent have been built here in recent years, in the form of flats, detached and semi-detached houses and town villas. The infrastructure has adapted well to this positive trend: Falkensee offers numerous cultural and sports facilities, schools and kindergartens. A popular excursion destination is the approximately 42-hectare Falkenhagener See, a landscape conservation area with beautiful lakeside paths. But the town is not only attractive for families with its extensive woodland, meadow and water areas. Artists and creative people also find peace and inspiration in the idyllic Havelland, with the proximity to the big city. Falkensee is excellently connected to the centre of Berlin by regional express train. The long-distance train station Berlin-Spandau is only ten minutes away. Falkensee offers the perfect mix for many – also to avoid the tight Berlin property market. This is also reflected in the price trend for flats and houses.
Falkenhagener and Neuer See
The “Neue See” and its big brother, the Falkenhagener See, which is right next to it, have been connected by a circular hiking trail for several years. It leads through the Nauen-Brieselang-Krämer landscape conservation area and is a paradise for jogging, hiking or Nordic walking fans. There is a great playground for children and in summer, you can rent a pedal boat from the restaurant “Quo Vadis” at Falkenhagener See and swim in the lake from there. In winter, the lake often freezes and turns into a great ice-skating area.
Bredower Forst with nature trail
The nature trail in Bredower Forst was set up in 1930, the first of its kind. Here, between Falkensee and Brieselang, the local flora and fauna can be explored at 16 stations. Since the forest is home to a very high diversity of native deciduous tree species in a small area, it is considered a particularly interesting place from a botanical point of view. Mushrooms and herbs can also be found here. On foot or as a bicycle tour, a perfect Sunday excursion.
Ristorante Seeterrassen Falkensee
Enjoy Italian classics, tradition and hospitality in a Mediterranean atmosphere at a candle light dinner, a cosy evening with a group of friends or a family meal with a direct view of the Falkensee.
Don Frà ice cream factory
From watermelon sorbet to classic milks – enjoy delicious Italian gelato or a cup of espresso at the Don Frà ice cream factory at Bahnhofstraße 40 in Falkensee.

The metropolitan district
The former eastern district is a magnet for new Berliners from all over the world, and it is correspondingly young and lively here. There are plenty of restaurants and places to go out, a strong startup scene and many young families. There are still many open spaces here - the forecast for purchase and rental price development is correspondingly positive.
Cool, creative - always wanted
Berlin-Kreuzberg is a district full of contrasts. With its renovated old buildings and its diverse, international cultural scene, the district is a charming mix of idyll and casual savoir-vivre. Kreuzberg attracts young people, but also more and more young families - living here is correspondingly sought-after.
Cosmopolitan, the place to be
History in motion, that is Berlin-Mitte. Nowhere can you experience the Berlin feeling more directly than here, where Prussian history and GDR past meet pulsating life, modern art, culture and architecture. Mitte is the center of the capital: as multifaceted as the whole of Berlin.
Much more than an insider tip
The cozy, centrally located Moabit with its beautiful old buildings and quiet residential streets is gradually awakening from its slumber. The former working-class district has a lot of historic, mostly renovated buildings, a mature infrastructure with the best shopping opportunities and many cafés and restaurants. Moabit is back!
Scene neighborhood with 1,000 facets
The most international and diverse of all Berlin's boroughs: from the hip scene neighborhood in the north to the village idyll in southern Rudow and Britz, you'll find it all here. Neukölln, with its proximity to Tempelhofer Feld and the new Berlin airport, has experienced an unprecedented upswing in recent years - this is also reflected in the rising real estate prices.
Nature unites with lifestyle & culture
The former noble district of East Berlin with its numerous Gründerzeit buildings is still characterized by the upper middle class today. It has been joined by many young families, who appreciate the good transport links, excellent shopping facilities and proximity to extensive green spaces such as the Botanical People's Park in the northernmost district of the capital.
Cosmopolitan, relaxed living
Germany's largest Wilhelminian quarter was an artists' quarter in GDR times. Today, "Prenzlberg" is a paradise for lovers of lavishly renovated old buildings and high-quality modern residential architecture. Gastronomic diversity, cozy squares with beautiful stores and a family-friendly infrastructure make the district extremely desirable.
Beautiful living in Berlin
It's nicer to live in Schöneberg. The mature district with its beautiful old buildings is home to numerous families, and at the same time there is still a lively neighborhood culture here. The new Gleisdreieckpark with its attractive modern residential development is a magnet for all those who like it green, relaxed and sporty even in the big city.
Green forests, lots of water and an old town
Almost like country life: The relaxed Spandau offers greenery, proximity to water, historically grown village centers and quite a lot of space. The former Slavic settlement on the western edge of Berlin is well connected to the inner-city districts - the metropolis can be reached quickly from Spandau, yet it is still quite far away.
Urban living in green
In Berlin's green center you live centrally and at the same time very relaxed. Here you will find modern architecture in the government district and around the main train station, lavishly renovated old buildings in the Lützow neighborhood and midcentury architectural monuments in the Hansa district. An attractive mix - surrounded by the city's green lung.
Green multicultural in the middle of Berlin
Now Wedding is really coming: The traditional working-class neighborhood characterized by diversity is now Berlin's youngest trendy district. Students and young families are discovering many new restaurants and cafés in the centrally located district, which borders Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. With Volkspark Humboldthain, Wedding even has its own green oasis.
Noble life in new splendor
Berlin-Wilmersdorf is grown bourgeoisie. The shopping opportunities, theaters and restaurants are first class, people meet in specialty stores and at their favorite Italian restaurant. There are stately old buildings here as well as modern residences for the highest demands. You don't move away from Wilmersdorf, you arrive here.
