Where to live in Berlin?
Berlin is the largest city in Germany and offers a great variety of very different areas to live in. Before you make the step to move to Berlin, you should have a look at some of the 12 districts to find the neighbourhood that suits you best. Each district has a different atmosphere and local culture and there are noticeable differences in real estate and rent prices. Move to Berlin gladly supports your search with our local knowledge and expertise.
Living and working in Berlin – what you need to know
We aim at finding the neighbourhood that best matches your preferences. To help you make your decision, we offer orientation tours around the city. We will focus on the areas meeting most requirements and show you Berlin from an insider point of view. Here are some important factors to keep in mind:
- Berlin is a large city. It might be a good idea to look for an apartment near your office – or to have an eye on traffic connections.
- Do you prefer a quiet neighbourhood? Or do you favour a lively neighbourhood with restaurants and culture just around the corner? Berlin offers a broad variety of different areas, ranging from extensive forests to the street that has the highest density of bars in Europe.
- Insider knowledge is crucial: Not all neighbourhoods of upcoming districts like Prenzlauer Berg feel the same – and there are some beautiful and quiet areas in less famous east Berlin districts just outside the inner city, such as Lichtenberg. You should definitely take a look at the neighbourhoods yourself or trust a competent and experienced partner.
- You have children? Then you should acquaint yourself with the German day care and school system – and look for a child friendly neighbourhood.
