Your apartment in Prenzlauer Berg – how charming!
Prenzlauer Berg is more popular than ever: Home to Germany's most extensive, turn-of-the-twentieth-century selection of Wilhelminian properties, Prenzlauer Berg is equally loved by its residents and visitors. Walking along the streets makes you feel like you have stepped back in time, or walked into a painting! A stroll around Kollwitzplatz is all you need to see the wealth of renovated buildings, originally dating back to the turn of the twentieth century - beautiful stucco facades and wide, landscaped sidewalks included. Anyone who is greeted by this view out of their apartment's windows every morning is lucky indeed. It comes as no surprise that celebrities such as the actors Nora Tschirner, August Diehl, Daniel Brühl or the author Wladimir Kaminer all call Prenzlauer Berg home.
But Prenzlauer Berg wasn't always like this. When the Berlin Wall fell, the district was largely neglected. Heating with coal was a reality in most of the area's apartments. Many residents had to go halfway upstairs to use their bathroom facilities. The countless vacant apartments added to Prenzlauer Berg's run-down character. The influx of the young and the creative following German reunification made Prenzlauer Berg their own, lured by the cheap and plentiful supply of living space. One apartment after the other was filled with life and Prenzlauer Berg, thanks to its new residents, evolved into one of Berlin's trendiest districts. Evidence of this can be found everywhere you look, with hundreds of small galleries, theaters and exhibition spaces. Prenzlauer Berg has become famous for its restaurants and cafes - and the best coffee and food in the city can be found here.

Prenzlauer Berg is also an ideal place for families, recognized far and wide as one of the most child-friendly places you could wish for. Many of the apartments for sale offer more than enough living space and bedrooms for parents and their little ones. The area is also extremely well supplied with nurseries, schools and play areas. Lots of cafes also offer indoor play areas and the sight of a stroller or pushchair in a stairwell is not a seldom, or unwelcome, one.
