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 big-city idyll and casual savoir-vivre. Kreuzberg attracts young people, but also more and more young families – living here is correspondingly desirable.
The legendary Kreuzberg nights are still long. And nowhere else in Berlin is more colourful than Kreuzberg. The diversity of the original working-class district has grown over decades, and the mixture of people with the most diverse cultural backgrounds is a real togetherness here. Since the fall of the Wall, the former border district has been part of the centre of the capital and is transforming from an alternative, hyperactive scene district to a modern, international hotspot: economically strong, arty, culinary sophisticated. And correspondingly in demand as a residential district. Between tolerant bourgeoisie in the Bergmannkiez, casual strolling on Maybachufer and big-city flair that feels almost village-like in the Graefekiez or Engelbecken, Kreuzberg keeps all Berlin promises. But one thing above all: here, everyone can be who he or she wants to be.
Highlights & Tips
Not far from the Axel Springer skyscraper, one of the city’s most exciting art venues has established itself. Gallery owner Johann König shows the works of emerging and established international artists such as Katharina Grosse, Norbert Bisky, Michael Sailstorfer and Alicja Kwade in the brutalist concrete building of the former St. Agnes Church. The programme focuses on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches, presented in a variety of ways: as sculpture, video, sound, painting, prints, photography or performance.
With artisan food from producers in Berlin and the surrounding area, Markthalle Neun changed the culinary scene in the capital. Especially on Saturdays and at one of the many events, it’s fun to sample the flavours of the new Berlin here: with homemade chorizo from “The Sausage Man Never Sleeps”, raw milk cheese from “Alte Milch” or a beer from the craft brewery “Heidenpeters”.
Nobelhart & Schmutzig
The “Nobelhart & Schmutzig” has a Michelin star. And yet it is anything but a stiff restaurant. Micha Schäfer’s “brutally local” cuisine is accompanied by the most exciting wines in the city, made from products grown no more than 120 km from Berlin. Landlord Billy Wagner has many things in his cellar that no one else has – as well as a fabulously good record collection and a talent for a good atmosphere. An experience!
Properties in Kreuzberg
Your real estate concerns in best hands
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.
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.
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.
