1. The hip neighbourhood

Neukölln is THE hippest and trendiest neighbourhood in Berlin. Years ago, cheap housing and a low cost of living attracted artists and other creatives, who gave the district its now-distinctive atmosphere. This made the area attractive for others striving for self-realisation. Students, citizens of the world and those looking for something alternative: they all find a place in Neukölln where they feel at home. Unexpected things happen here, and life is constantly surprising, relaxed and exciting in equal measure. You can be who you are (or who you want to be) and develop yourself and your personality.

2. A colourful mix

Anyone who thinks that the flood of newcomers has expelled the native population of Neukölln is sorely mistaken. The long-established have welcomed the newcomers with open arms, as they upgrade this former problem district, opening up new business sectors and increasing tourism. Named Rixdorf until 1912, the area has the highest proportion of inhabitants with a migration background in Berlin, after Mitte. This results in a mix of different origins and cultures, creating a harmonious district that is utterly unique – and not only in the capital.

Shopping at the weekly market

3. No empty pockets

Despite the popularity of the district, life in Neukölln is still affordable. The espresso in the café next door and the beer in the pub around the corner are cheaper than in Charlottenburg, Mitte or Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. Housing prices are also lower than other parts of the centre of Berlin. But if you’re looking to buy an apartment in Neukölln, you had better be quick, because demand is high and the situation will soon change.

4. Bored? Not around here!

The diversity in culture is also reflected in the variety of leisure activities. Anyone walking along Sonnenallee, for example, will be greeted by a colourful hustle and bustle. At every corner you can choose between second-hand shops and department stores, between Köfte and veggie-burger or between shisha-bar and quaint pub. There's certainly something for everyone.

5. When it's dark outside

With a youthful population comes a pulsating nightlife. Neukölln can now easily keep up with the legendary Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, with its multitude of options for going out which are as extraordinary as they are exhilarating. Whether dancing in Griessmuehle, enjoying a drink with a magnificent view over the city in Klunkerkranich or laughing in the Comedy Café: between Sonnenallee, Hermannstraße and Tempelhofer Feld, the nights are magnificent.

6. Nature close at hand

If all this cultural diversity isn’t your thing, you can retreat to less populated areas. There are a huge number of green areas, allotments and parks, especially in the south of the district. The Britzer Garden, for example, offers a variety of outdoor activities in case the hustle and bustle of the city becomes too much for you. The often-green surroundings and proximity to nature are what many people like about the former Rixdorf. Because of the contrasts and variety, there is nothing you have to do without.

Escape to the green parks

7. One district, many worlds

The district of Neukölln consists of five different neighbourhoods: (North-)Neukölln, Britz, Buckow, Rudow and Gropiusstadt. While the north is the cultural epicentre, it becomes greener and quieter the further south you travel. Each of the neighbourhoods has its own charm, but you can certainly benefit from the short distances. If, for example, you choose Britz for the sake of your idyllic neighbourhood, you can still reach the more exciting areas in no time at all. On the other hand, if you buy an apartment in the north of Neukölln, you don't have to miss out on relaxing hours in the countryside - because it's only a stone's throw away.

8. Tempelhofer field

Tempelhofer Feld also serves for local recreation. Since no more aircraft take off or land at this old airport, it has been taken over by the local residents and used for various leisure activities. Jogging, longboarding and barbecuing are just some of the most popular activities - the almost endless area offers dozens of possibilities. Among other things, it is the proximity to this special place that makes Schillerkiez one of the most popular residential areas of the city. Even though Tempelhofer Feld does not strictly belong to Neukölln (it is part of its own district, Tempelhof-Schöneberg), its proximity improves the lifestyle of many Neuköllners.

9. Kreuzkölln

In addition to Schillerkiez, Neukölln has other areas which are known beyond their own borders. These include Reuterkiez, because Neukölln is busiest where it meets Kreuzberg. Also known as Kreuzkölln, due to its fluid location inbetween Kreuzberg and Neukölln, this is one of the city's most popular neighbourhoods. One pub after another, culinary diversity and an abundance of shopping possibilities make the district one of the liveliest areas of the city.

10. Summer by the canal

At the edges of the Neukölln Ship Canal and the Landwehr canal there are not just any banks. Weigandufer, Maybachufer and co. are known to all Berliners. Especially in summer, the floodgates open and along the canal a flourishing promenade develops. Neuköllners of all types come together here to walk, picnic and enjoy the sun. It is difficult to find a more relaxed vista in a big city.

S-Bahnhof Sonnenallee

11. Well-connected

Even if you do not have the privilege of having your job in your own neighbourhood, you are in good hands in Neukölln. You can easily reach the rest of the city by bus and train. The Ringbahn stops at the three S-Bahn stations Sonnenallee, Berlin-Neukölln and Hermannstrasse. The underground line U7 crosses almost the entire district from Rudow and meets the U8 at Hermannplatz. You can bridge the other small distances with various bus lines. Here you are really well connected. So if you are playing with the idea of buying an apartment in Neukölln, we can only agree. It is an interesting district with an exceptional character that has not yet reached the end of its development. Here you have the chance to develop and help shape your neighbourhood - at affordable prices. If you are looking for a home in Neukölln, take a look at our portfolio.
