The former East Berlin district is a magnet for new Berliners from all over the world, and it is correspondingly young and lively here. With countless restaurants, bars and clubs, and a distinct start-up scene, with yet many open spaces the district is now also very attractive to many young families. So the forecast for the development of purchase and rental prices in Friedrichshain is correspondingly positive.
Between past and future
Friedrichshain is a place of new beginnings, change and development. The district in the former eastern part of the city is characterised by its past as a workers’ quarter with harbour, railway and industrial areas. The spirit of the socialist East Berlin is still radiating today by the listed Stalin buildings on Karl-Marx-Allee. The East Side Gallery is a reminder of the wall that once divided the city. Just like the Oberbaum Bridge between Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, today a symbol of the growing together of East and West. The dynamics resulting from the then and now can be felt everywhere in Friedrichshain: In new neighbourhoods on the banks of the Spree, on the site of the former Bohemian Brewery or around Ostkreuz station. The student party district with its high density of nightlife options around Simon-Dach-Strasse now also appeals to international families who appreciate extensive green spaces like Volkspark Friedrichshain and the idyllic Stralau peninsula. The very convenient transport connections within Berlin and to BER airport and the short distances to neighbouring districts make the district even more attractive.
Our Highlights & Tipps
Boxhagener Platz is the essence of Friedrichshain. With a large weekly market, one of the best flea markets in the city and many cafés, restaurants and small shops in the adjacent streets, the “Boxi” perfectly embodies the spirit of this district, which oscillates between alternative and middle-class.
Take a deep breath, please! Close to the hustle and bustle of the capital, yet still so private, is the Stralau peninsula between Lake Rummelsburg and the harbour at Treptower Park. With its modern, high-quality buildings, the idyllic area around the former fishing village of Stralau is now one of the most sought-after residential areas in Berlin.
This insider tip among Berlin’s wine bars has been around since 2014. In a former stamp shop on Karl-Marx-Allee, two friends from Italy have created a gem: Under the motto “Grandi vini – piccola cucina”, Italian (natural) wine treasures can be found in the cosy bar furnished with flea market furniture. This is accompanied by mixed antipasti and a pasta of the day with fresh products from the market.

Our property insights
Idyll with city view
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.
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.
