The working-class district with history, characterised by cultural diversity, is developing into 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 Rehberge, Schillerpark and Volkspark Humboldthain, Wedding even has its own green oases.
On the way to tomorrow
It seems as if the central city district, bordering Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and Moabit, has finally found its destiny: From the traditional working-class district, the “red Wedding”, to an international research and science location. More than 12,000 future engineers study at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences: the Virchow Clinic with the German Heart Centre is one of the main locations of the Charité. And at the site of the former Tegel Airport, the “Urban Tech Republic” is being built on almost 500 hectares as an international campus for urban technologies with plenty of space for companies, students and flats. This will accelerate the development of the multicultural district into a preferred place of residence for students and young families. The change in Wedding is already noticeable. Numerous high-quality new buildings are being constructed not only in the popular Sprengelkiez, but also in other neighbourhoods. The Gesundbrunnen district is merging more and more with the neighbouring Mitte district. The new BND headquarters on Chausseestrasse is also driving demand for real estate in Wedding. The time of stagnation is over; in Wedding there is only one direction: forward.
Highlights & Tips
Beyond the buzzing Badstraße, hidden behind high walls, the Uferstudios are one of the most important addresses for contemporary dance in Berlin. In 2010, the listed Uferhallen of the former central workshops of the Berliner Transport Company were converted into a cultural centre for visual arts, music and dance. Since then, choreographers, dancers and other artists have been using the spacious studios as a rehearsal, training and meeting place. The regular events and festivals are open to all.
Wedding is home to one of Berlin’s best restaurants: the “Ernst” with eight seats and a Japanese-inspired menu of around 50 courses. Its more casual brother is located directly opposite. The “Julius” is a wine and coffee bar during the day, the beans are roasted and brewed by a Japanese coffee master. In the evening, the young team serves a menu with the same high-quality ingredients from the Berlin area and Europe that are used to cook at “Ernst”. This is accompanied by selected wines, beers, cider and champagne.
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.
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.
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.
