Perched on a hill in the north Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg is one of Berlin’s most picturesque neighbourhoods. With small winding streets full of little designer stores and delicious restaurants, it certainly is a sweet place to live! The architecture is the epitome of contemporary Berlin: historical stone buildings adjacent to high-end, glass-and-steel buildings developed in the past decade, which offer both charming and luxurious amenities.
In the commercial area of Rosenthaler Platz, one will find plenty of cafés, foreign restaurants, and shops. But stroll a few blocks up the hill and the atmospheres quiets down. On the Zionskirchplatz, the rumble of cars and tramways is only distant, and it’s a little quiet universe of its own. Prenzlauer Berg sure is a romantic place.
The neighborhood is famous for having high quality schools and amenities for children. While it was loosing inhabitants just 20 years ago, Prenzlauer Berg is now particularly attractice for young professionals and their families, and is also home to many start-ups.
