History in motion, that is Berlin-Mitte. Nowhere can you experience the Berlin feeling more intensively than here, where classic meets modern. With the government and embassy district, the headquarters of major companies and a lively start-up culture, the district is also the political and economic centre of Berlin. Mitte sets the tone for the capital and is an international trendsetter.
The heart of Berlin
Like no other district, Mitte stands for the new Berlin. Here, history and the present have grown together to form a very special mixture. Unter den Linden and around the Brandenburg Gate, between the Museum Island, Humboldt University, the State Opera House and the Berlin Cathedral, Prussia’s splendour shines as it did a hundred years ago. A tourist magnet, yes. But Mitte is by no means a museal centre: with the parliament, the Federal Chancellery, ministries and international think tanks, this is where the country’s most important political decisions are made. Around Hackescher Markt, Oranienburger Straße and Torstraße, galleries, boutiques, bars and restaurants mix with a cosmopolitan crowd. The tension between then and now makes Mitte an ideal source of inspiration for start-ups and the creative scene. Short distances and a perfect infrastructure further enhance the urban, dynamic feeling in Mitte. The rental and purchase properties in the district, which is one of the most popular residential locations in Berlin, are correspondingly sought-after.
Highlights & Tips
The Museum Island with its five museums is a unique piece of Prussian (architectural) history. The ensemble in the historic centre of Berlin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a renovation by David Chipperfield, the Neues Museum by Friedrich August Stüler with the Egyptian Museum, where the world-famous bust of Nefertiti can be seen, is once again as architecturally worth seeing as it was when it was built in the 19th century.
At “FREA” you can experience how good the conscious use of food tastes. Everything in Berlin’s first vegan zero-waste restaurant is homemade with climate-friendly organic ingredients, from sourdough bread to pasta to dark chocolate. Leftovers are turned into fertile soil by the restaurant’s own composting machine. FREA reflects the current spirit of the times – a restaurant with depth.

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.
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.
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.
