Centrally located Moabit with its beautiful old buildings and quiet residential streets was long considered an insider tip. In the former industrial and workers’ district, which is surrounded by waterways and canals is a lot of historic, mostly renovated building fabric, a mature infrastructure and numerous cafés and restaurants. Meanwhile, the increasing popularity of the neighbouring district of Wedding is also rubbing off on Moabit. A district with a lot of positive development potential.
Moabit has always been lively. Situated between leafy canals and the Spree River, the district developed into a highly populated working-class neighbourhood in the course of industrialisation. With reunification, Moabit moved back into the centre of Berlin. Today, the district north of Tiergarten is multicultural and popular with students, but also with young families who appreciate the wide range of schools and leisure facilities. The main railway station and the local transport network ensure perfect connections. The lively Turmstraße with its small shops, supermarkets and restaurants, the new Schultheiss-Quartier with its diverse shopping opportunities and the historic Arminiusmarkthalle with its wide range of culinary specialities from Peru, Austria, Vietnam, Canada, Lebanon or Italy – Moabit has it all. Word is spreading: the manageable range of properties is in high demand. The price trend reflects the growing interest in the centrally located district.
Highlights & Tips
The reception building of the former Berlin-Hamburg railway station from the 1840s is the only surviving one of Berlin’s large terminus stations. Today, the late classicist building houses one of the world’s most interesting public collections of contemporary art. This includes large-scale works by Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, sculptures and installations by Georg Baselitz, Elmgreen & Dragset, Bruce Nauman and Dan Flavin. The special exhibitions are also excitingly curated.
Sourdough bread as crispy as in London or Copenhagen? You can get it at Domberger Brot-Werk, a small artisan bakery on Essener Straße. The light and dark sourdough breads and rolls made from organic flour from the Ore Mountains are sensationally tasty. No wonder Domberger’s bread can now be found in the city’s best restaurants.
Fine dining since 1987: The restaurant combines German, French and Russian tradition and creates its own definition of culinary pleasure – creative, fresh as well as regional and seasonal.
Buchkantine Cafe and Feinkost
The Book Canteen is a combination bookstore, deli and café that invites you to stroll through the book section, feast and host private events.
In the historically protected market hall with a large fish offer, varied gastronomy and gourmet handicrafts, everyone can enjoy themselves. For example, the Hofladen serves Austrian specialties, schnitzel, cheese spaetzle and goulash. At the Wohnzimmerbar you will find a selection of regional and international wines. For brunch, a Prosecco Butler awaits you. Lovers of American Southern cuisine will get their money’s worth at the Pignut BBQ.
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.
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.
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.
