Live in Friedrichshain – which means living in one of the most exciting city districts! The district east of the city centre forms a district network together with Kreuzberg and represents the creative and dynamic side of Berlin. Whether it’s Astra Kulturhaus or RAW-Gelände, the beer gardens or bars, trendy clubs or the evening bustle on the Oberbaum Bridge, Friedrichshain’s cultural side and nightlife is extremely rich. Even the Mercedes Benz Arena, with its famous concerts and major events, is just a stone’s throw away. During the day, the many small shops, creative labels and art galleries attract visitors to the area.
But it’s no longer just the young alternative crowd that feels at home in Friedrichshain. The old-town district, heavily influenced by the Wilhelminian period, has been converted into sought-after residential areas for professionals and families over the past few decades. Not only will they find a great selection of nurseries, schools, games and sports on offer. With the nearby banks of the River Spree, the Lichtenberg zoo, the Rummelsburger Bucht bay and the Treptower Park, green oases for relaxing in are never too far away.
