Its artistic, cultural and gastronomic diversity are the central elements of Berlin's trendy Kreuzberg district. In hardly any other district will you find so much on offer and so many different ways of life co-existing so peacefully and tolerantly alongside one another. A walk through Kreuzberg is like a little journey through the world. Some neighbourhoods seem to have no sense of time at all and there is always laughter to be heard somewhere. In the midst of all this colourful liveliness lies the historic residential ensemble of Riehmers Hofgarten. Having a residence here allows you to rediscover Kreuzberg every day. At the same time, the magnificent treasures of the older buildings and luxurious new penthouse apartments, located in an oasis of privacy and tranquillity, provide an opportunity to retreat at any time to relax and gain new strength. High-end life and living in Kreuzberg in one of the finest and most sophisticated properties Berlin has to offer.
Riehmers Hofgarten is an architectural gem in the heart of Kreuzberg – and has been for far more than 100 years. In the second half of the 19th century, the architect Wilhelm Riehmer created a visionary counter-design to the prevailing mood of the time. In contrast to Berlin’s rather functional tenements, Riehmer’s ensemble contained spacious apartments surrounding their own magnificent courtyard garden. This flair of high quality living can still be felt today and the desire for "quality, greenery and retreat" remains unchanged in the hustle and bustle of the city. Elaborate renovation measures to both the interior and exterior have allowed the Kreuzberg icon that is Riehmers Hofgarten to shine with renewed brilliance, while numerous apartments in the older buildings have been meticulously renovated and restored. In addition to this, five newly-built, exquisite penthouse apartments now sit enthroned on the ensemble and allow those residing there to live above the roofs of the city and to enjoy breath-taking views and encircling roof terraces, which are private oases of calm offering fantastic vistas over Kreuzberg.
More so perhaps than any other district of Berlin, Kreuzberg stands for tolerant co-existence. It is a place where traders offer their goods in colourful weekly markets, while important agency meetings or client appointments take place just next door. Kreuzberg is home to quiet cafes, award-winning restaurants and small back-yard theatres – often all on the same street. Those who love Berlin for its diversity, openness and tolerance will relish living in this part of this wonderful city. In the Riehmers Hofgarten apartments, versatility is combined with the seclusion and tranquillity you’ll need to be able to immerse yourself in art and culture the next day.
Whether as a yield investment or for self-occupation, a residential apartment in Kreuzberg represents an excellent choice due to its location in the city. Located in the centre of Berlin, the district is centrally placed and easily accessible. Other districts close to the city such as Mitte, Friedrichshain or Schöneberg are only a short distance away, while the famous Victoria Park, the internationally-renowned Landwehr Canal, the multi-award-winning Park am Gleisdreieck and the extensive Tempelhofer Feld are also all close by. Riehmers Hofgarten is a unique address for an urban retreat amid the vibrancy of the big city.
