Living in a green and quiet place in the middle of the city? Easy neighbourhood living in East Berlin? The popular Weitlingkiez neighbourhood with its quiet residential streets lies within easy walking distance of the “Lichtenberg” rapid-transit station. A well-preserved stock of period buildings with tree-lined streets defines the character of the new quarter. This up-and-coming borough of Lichtenberg is also where our multi-family dwellings are located, one on Irenenstrasse and one on Zachertstrasse: Period-building charm complemented by a leafy courtyard in an up-market residential area. What is amazing about this is that you are close to a bustling railway station that provides regional and long-distance service by train or coach in every direction, as well as rapid transit and underground connections to the rest of the city. It’s a top location!
Right off main street, you are welcomed by green and friendly side streets with well-appointed rows of houses that are typical for this quarter. The Weitlingkiez neighbourhood certainly lives up to Lichtenberg’s reputation as Berlin’s latest trendy district. Having been considered remote and hardly attractive until a few year ago, the latest figures suggest that especially young people and families now feel drawn to the borough. Especially in the western part of Lichtenberg, which borders directly on the rapid-transit circle line, demand for housing has been rising briskly, and with it rents and prices. People from the trendy districts of Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg are packing up and moving into the green and reawakened borough of Lichtenberg next door. With convenient access to all major forms of public transportation, you are perfectly connected to the inner city and simultaneously well within reach of scenic and waterfront day-trip destinations: This is what people appreciate about the eastern part of Berlin.
The borough itself is as heterogeneous as it could possibly be, not just in terms of the cityscape and its population structure, but also in regard to serious discrepancies in purchasing power and the drastic differences in housing costs. From students to families who relocate here, and all the way to the elderly who have lived here their entire lives, the borough is home to a rich blend of residents. Anyone passing through the Weitlingkiez neighbourhood will instantly understand why demand for housing in this area is growing steadily and that the price growth here is faster than almost anywhere else in the city. A charming neighbourhood with a high degree of liveability! Buying a condominium here as a buy-to-let investment is a sound way to invest in your future.
