In recent decades, Berlin has experienced an incomparable upturn. Where once the city, the country and the whole of Europe were all divided, today people from all corners of the world come together and create an unparalleled level of diversity. Berlin is the place to be. The historical ensemble of Riehmers Hofgarten in the heart of Kreuzberg is a unique opportunity to experience Berlin’s cultural diversity up close, while also benefitting from a refuge of peace and seclusion. The unique cultural monument is a self-contained complex full of beauty and history. Meticulously restored in accordance with the historical model, newly-renovated treasures await new residents and owners. The crowning jewel is the five newly-built penthouse apartments perched atop the rooftops that allow breath-taking views across Berlin from spacious private terraces.
Berlin is also known for its diversity in terms of architecture. Wonderful buildings from the Wilhelmine period, Art Nouveau villas and charming old buildings characterise the image of many districts and neighbourhoods. But only rarely do you come across a truly iconic treasure such as Riehmers Hofgarten. More than 100 years ago, in the heart of Kreuzberg, the architect Wilhelm Riehmer created his visionary counter-design to the functional tenements he found himself surrounded by. The quality of life enjoyed here by the wealthy officials and merchants was rare for Berlin’s bourgeoisie at that time and the ensemble still draws its unique charm from Riehmer’s revolutionary zeal. Adorned with the finest stucco and brass, protected by wrought-iron gates and enlivened by the eponymous Hofgarten, or courtyard garden, this piece of architectural history is a sophisticated residential dream for all those who love Berlin as much as their own private seclusion and tranquillity.
Parallel to the ongoing boom in Berlin, the property market is also showing a rise in demand for the finest of residences with that very special something. Properties such as Riehmers Hofgarten are a unique opportunity and are very popular. The residential ensemble is located in the heart of the sprawling metropolis, in the district of Kreuzberg, making it centrally and conveniently located. Within a few minutes, you can get out to the city's main hotspots, such as the Potsdamer Platz, the East Side Gallery or the Kurfürstendamm. At the same time, however, it is not far to enjoy some local recreation in quieter places, such as the extensive Tempelhofer Feld or the wide range of parks and woodlands. If you want to live a demanding, culturally rich and cosmopolitan life, the heart of Berlin is the place for you.
Berlin is growing and thriving and will soon have more than four million inhabitants. Every new citizen makes Berlin even more colourful, diverse and rich. Spread out over almost 900 square kilometres, the modern urban spirit has everything he or she needs to spend their life richly and happily. The city centre is full of culture and the city's eventful history is evident on every street corner. At the same time, modern Berlin is home to top-level international companies from every industry as well as daring start-ups and cultural creators of every conceivable stylistic persuasion. But Berlin can also be quiet and calm; whether this be on the numerous green spaces, lakes and tributaries of the river or in a completely private refuge of peace and relaxation in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Riehmers Hofgarten offers a unique opportunity to live in a traditional piece of Berlin city history.
