The building radiates a welcoming sense of calm. And it’s no wonder; the sturdy Altbau was built in 1900 and has since been witness to a turbulent history. Yet the building is now experiencing a new era. The façade and interior are freshly painted and renovated, the two courtyards are newly redesigned, and new balconies have been put up. Most of these predominantly 1-bedroom apartments face the courtyard, offering green views and a protected atmosphere. And as is typical of these buildings, the apartments have high ceilings and convey a wonderful sense of space, topped off with classic details, such as wooden flooring.
You can see from the map, Moabit is right in the thick of it. The river separates it from Mitte and Tiergarten, the Federal Chancellery and Charlottenburg Palace. Hipsters are drawn to Mitte, conservatives to Charlottenburg and diplomats and politicians to Tiergarten. So who is drawn to Moabit? The non-conformists, anyone who wants to live in the heart of Berlin but not surrounded by people, anyone who loves period buildings but is also energised by the city’s newest developments. And with stunning views of the water, plenty of green spaces, and the coolest insider locations, there is something for everyone.
