Hip, New & Cool : Neukölln

From Kiez-cool to suburban idyll

Artistic, vibrant, multi-cultural… Neukölln is one of the most colourful and interesting neighbourhoods in Berlin. Famous for its dynamic atmosphere and array of quirky bars, restaurants, and shops, yet still a place with a strong sense of community, where people from all walks of life find a place to call home. The northern neighbourhoods of the district are a bustling mixture of families and youngsters from all over the world, interspersed with enduring working-class Berliners. Further south, the district becomes predominantly residential, with detached houses and allotments.

Culture & Lifestyle
Ask any Berliner where is the cultural hub of the city, and you will get the same answer every time: Neukölln. For the past few years, the young, hip, lively crowds have been flocking to this part of the city, eager to benefit from the relatively cheap rents, multi-cultural vibes, and dazzling collection of underground bars, vegan cafes and music of every kind.
Retaining just enough of the grit that made it a genuinely exciting place to begin with, Neukölln has made the most of its cultural renaissance and is thriving from the influx of new residents. One of Neukölln’s most famous Kiezes is Weserkiez, which takes its name from Weserstraße, the lifeline of the neighbourhood. Around here, historic houses of Rixdorf can be found alongside artists’ studios and lively new establishments.
Nature
Though perhaps not as well served for nature as some other districts, Neukölln nevertheless features more than enough green, open spaces to which its locals can escape. Tempelhofer Feld, though mostly lying in the district which bears its name, nevertheless borders Neukölln, and is a hugely popular destination at all times.
Hasenheide park, shared with neighbouring Kreuzberg, is similarly beloved by locals, and was the site of the first gymnasium in Prussia, built back in 1811. To the East, Neukölln is largely bordered by canals; both the Landwehr and Teltow canals are attractive places to amble alongside.
Economics
As can be imagined from a district as laden with cafes, bars and restaurant as Neukölln, the service sector is thriving, with new places opening up frequently.
Towards the south, traditional industrial sectors remain reasonably well catered-for, particularly in automotive and mechanical engineering, the food and tobacco industries and chemical-pharmaceuticals. Companies such as Philip Morris, Kraft Foods and Viessmann Werke all have operations here.
