Berlin-Wilmersdorf is mature middle-class. The shopping facilities, theatre and restaurants are first-class, people meet in specialist shops and at their favourite Italian restaurant. There are stately old buildings here as well as modern residences for the most discerning tastes. You don’t move away from Wilmersdorf, you settle here.
Elegance with a well-being factor
Wilmersdorf is a district to lean back in. In the middle of the big city, yet you feel safe, stress-free and comfortable. The district is traditionally middle-class characterized, with well-kept old buildings from the Wilhelminian period, detached houses in small-town Schmargendorf and stately villa architecture in Grunewald. The quality of life is high, as is the income structure in the respective districts. With the Kurfürstendamm, the newly renovated shopping centre WILMA Shoppen with its own food court and many established specialist shops, elegant Wilmersdorf has an enviable density of retail for the highest demands. The district has also always had a lot to offer culturally: In the 1920s, City-West developed into the hotspot of Berlin’s intellectual bohemia with cafés, restaurants and theatre. Many of these structures have survived to this day. Families also appreciate the Wilmersdorf consistency; people identify with their district. The feel-good atmosphere is coveted: rental and purchase properties are still in high demand, and prices are steadily rising.
Highlights & Tips
Schaubühne at Lehniner Platz
For more than 50 years, the Schaubühne has been committed to modern theatre. In addition to great classics, many contemporary and experimental plays are staged here. There are also regular discussion series and festivals. Don’t miss it: Ensemble member Lars Eidinger as “Hamlet” in the play of the same name by William Shakespeare, staged by long-time Schaubühne director Thomas Ostermeier.
The St. Petersburg star gastronome Aram Mnatsakanov loves Italian cuisine and great wines from Italy. That’s why his first Berlin restaurant, which he opened together with his son Mikhail, is a tribute to the Italian way of life. In a spectacularly beautiful ambience of Belgian wooden tables, wallpaper by Cole & Son and light sculptures by Tom Dixon. The ambitious dishes are prepared with first-class products from Italy. There is also a wide selection of organic and biodynamic wines, which alone make a visit to this stylish restaurant worthwhile.
The Michelin-starred Bieberbau bears the signature of master sculptor/ plasterer Richard Bieber. Today, the Bieberbau’s ornamentation bears fascinating witness to a forgotten art form and attracts guests who enjoy dining in this imaginative décor. A unique jewel in the gastronomic landscape of Berlin.
Güntzelkiez & Prager Platz
The Güntzelkiez between Hohenzollerndamm, Bundesallee, Berliner Straße and Brandenburgische Straße is something very special. Between small, owner-operated delicatessens and handicraft stores as well as a rich culinary landscape, nice restaurants and cafés, you can really enjoy the peace and quiet here, but also quickly immerse yourself in the city bustle.
The modern houses around Prager Platz look as if they were tailor-made piece by piece for the square. The square is not so much a tourist magnet as a center of attraction for residents, with a green area, a fountain and a shopping arcade.

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.
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.
