Dynamic and cosmopolitan


Berlin's most populous borough

As is to be expected from Berlin’s second-largest and most populous district, Pankow offers a huge amount of variety. From cosmopolitan, bohemian Prenzlauer Berg in the south, through the leafy residential neigbourhoods of Pankow and Weissensee, to increasingly rural landscapes in the north, there is a huge amount to discover. Its history as part of the former GDR can also be felt throughout Pankow, developing it in unique ways and making some of the most interesting neighbourhoods in the city.

Culture & Lifestyle
Culturally, Pankow is dominated by Prenzlauer Berg in the south. A hugely important part of East Berlin’s counter-culture, some of that can still be felt in the area’s lively cafés, entertaining bars, and hip galleries and studios.
As a focus of Berlin’s gentrification since the fall of the Wall however, you are more likely to encounter a flock of baby-strollers outside a café, than a group of young avant-garde artists.
The neighbourhood of Pankow was very popular amongst the political and artistic elite of the GDR, and its suburban charm continues to attract many.
Pankow was a popular day-trip destination and summer residence of the upper middle classes as early as the 19th century, and it still enjoys a large number of green spaces.
Mauerpark, in Prenzlauer Berg, is a public park on a former border zone between the wall that separated East- and West Berlin, which now holds a weekly flea-market.
The neighbourhood of Weissensee takes its name from the pretty lake surrounded by parkland.
The baroque Schönhausen Palace has beautiful park grounds, and the further north you get, the more open the spaces become.
Business and education is typically varied throughout the district. Prenzlauer Berg is home to some of the city’s biggest start-ups, such as Hello Fresh and Home24, both in the city’s top 200 employers. The Berlin Weissensee School of Art, founded by artists associated with the Bauhaus movement, is internationally renowned.
Buch, in the north of the district, is a hub of international biotechnological research and product development, centred around the Charité University Hospital, one of the largest biomedical centres in Germany.
