It is the most international and diverse of all Berlin’s boroughs: from the hip, trendy neighbourhood in the north to the village idyll in southern Rudow and Britz, everything can be found in Neukölln. With the Tempelhofer Feld as a huge open-air playground for all generations and the proximity to the new Berlin airport, Neukölln has experienced an unprecedented upswing in recent years. This is also reflected in the steadily rising property prices.
A trendy neighbourhood with a thousand facets
Neukölln is simply unbelievable. The vibrant district in the south of Berlin is changing constantly and rapidly. Its diversity, the many different nations that live together here, make up the pace and dynamism of this fascinating district. Neukölln is sociable, noisy and chaotic – but that is precisely where its enormous potential lies: everyone who wants to fulfil themselves will find their place here. Neukölln is big and tolerant enough for everyone: artists, tech companies or young chocolate manufacturers. The openness to new things makes the multi-ethnic district between kebab shops and natural wine bistros a kind of laboratory for the future that shows Berlin its almost infinite development possibilities in an unorthodox way. But you can still take a deep breath here – on Tempelhofer Feld or on Maybachufer. In the south, Neukölln resembles a green suburb. In Böhmisch-Rixdorf it exudes village flair.
Highlights & Tips
On the Neukölln side of the Landwehrkanal you will find one of the liveliest weekly markets in the city every Tuesday and Friday. The oriental bazaar with a neighbourhood flair offers international specialities, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, regional organic bread, handicrafts, fabrics and ribbons. If you’re in the mood for donuts on Maybachufer: Brammibal’s has the best in town. A few steps away, Populus Coffee serves home-roasted coffee.
It is an icon of modern urban development: the housing estate in the Britz district, built by the architects Bruno Taut and Martin Wagner and the garden architect Leberecht Migge between 1925 and 1933 in the shape of a horseshoe, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. Architecture fans can experience the special design and colour scheme of the estate houses in the “Tauten Heim”. The perfectly restored terraced end house with garden, terrace and historic tiled stoves is furnished original in the style of the 1920s and can be rented as a holiday home.
A visit to Tempelhofer Feld is like a trip to the countryside – without having to leave the city. Since it was opened to the public in 2010, Berlin has gained one of the largest urban open spaces in the world with international appeal. Where airplanes used to take off, there are now more than 300 hectares of green leisure and recreation space for playing sports, skating, walking, picnicking, cycling, kiteboarding or simply lying in the grass and relaxing.

From the zoo to the fairy tale playground to the outdoor cinema: Near the street Hasenheide there is a tree-rich area where animals from different continents live. An emu from Australia is one of them, as well as Kashmir goats from Asia, parks or alpacas from South America. The elaborately designed fairytale playground is centrally located: Here the children climb and romp under high wooden palm trees or board a pirate ship. Neighbouring the playground is the open-air cinema Hasenheide with 1,000 seats, which was built as a natural theatre from 1955 to 1958. The “Hasenschänke”, a snack pavilion in typical architecture with a forecourt, which is used as a café in summer, dates from the same period.
Discover real estate in Neukölln
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.
