Why settle in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg : Berlin


Friedrichshain merged with Kreuzberg, the neighbour district in 2001 and hence the district is also referred as “Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg”. The western part of the districts has buildings with concrete slab constructions, while the eastern part has historic buildings of the Wilhelminian time. Karl-Marx-Allee and Frankfurter Allee are in the central location and hence apartments in the stalinistic buildings are in high demand. The apartments in the huge condos have practicable cuts and are easily accessible through public transportation system (BVG) and in proximity to many restaurant and cafés.
