With a rising population, a growing economy and a modern, dynamic urban landscape, over recent decades Berlin has become one of Europe’s most exciting and vibrant capital cities. Rising property prices show no signs of slowing, so now is the perfect time to consider investing in a development in Berlin.
Berlin is one of the best capitals in Europe for those starting a business, according to Ernst & Young’s Startup Barometer and Startup Genome, with around 500 tech startups coming to the city each year. More than just making it a great place to do business, the city's popularity with startups has helped shape Berliners’ lifestyle too. Many startups chose the city for its understanding of the importance of a healthy work–life balance. Residents work hard, but leave plenty of time for more leisurely pursuits too.
For some Berliners, this means taking advantage of the superb public transport system to explore the city’s diverse neighbourhoods. For others, it means enjoying the nightlife; unlike in many other cities, Berlin bars have no official closing time and trains run through the night, so the city is alive at all hours. Lovers of culture have three opera houses and over 150 theatres to discover, along with the city's Museum Island – a UNESCO World Heritage Site with five world-class museums. Those looking to get away from it all in their leisure time are also well provided for, with 19 golf courses and dozens of spas, including a genuine salt cave where you can indulge in a range of relaxing treatments.
Engel & Völkers are currently handling a variety of exceptional developments in Berlin. Three of those we would like to introduce to you in the following. The first, GLEIS PARK Berlin takes advantage of the fact that Berlin is the greenest city in Germany with an exclusive location in the heart of an urban park. Each apartment is designed to create a bright, spacious living area that sits in harmony with the natural world around it, but incorporates the conveniences of a central urban location.
For those who love having nature on their doorstep, the SUED1 development could also be an exceptional choice. Located in the well-established city-west district Wilmersdorf, SUED1 is close to charming boutique stores, restaurants and galleries. It also borders onto the vast forests and bodies of water of Grunewald, making it a perfect natural idyll for anyone seeking a healthy rural lifestyle without sacrificing fast access to the city centre. Each apartment at SUED1 is light, spacious and offers balcony or loggia.
Further north, close to Kurfürstendamm and the shopping, culture and culinary offerings of Charlottenburg, you’ll find our third development: Mulberry Yards. Inspired by nouvelle cuisine’s emphasis on quality and aesthetics, Mulberry Yards is a tempting architectural treat right in the heart of Berlin’s culinary district. The central location makes it a great base for exploring the city, but the apartments’ elegant interiors mean residents will be just as happy unwinding at home.
In 2018 prices for apartments in Berlin rose by more than 15%, spurred by healthy demand. If you’re interested in any of our development projects, or need more information on investing in Berlin, contact us today.
