The apartment is located in the district Neukölln. Like neighboring Kreuzberg, Neukölln was on the edge of West Berlin while the city was divided. Since Neukölln was known for its low rents, it attracted many immigrants here: so a special, multicultural flair was born. After reunification, the district suddenly became more central and popular with students and young people. The alternative subculture of Kreuzberg gradually reached the north of Neukölln. After the Tempelhof airport was closed, the area is no longer so loud and the Tempelhof field is a popular within walking distance. Likewise the nearby park “Hasenheide”.
Within a few years, Neukölln has become one of the trendiest places in Berlin: it offers international cuisine, cafes and bars for a small budget. The clubs in Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain are easily accessible by public transport. The border area between Kreuzberg and Hermannplatz is known as “Kreuzkölln”.
The area has good transport links. The subway line U7 leads directly to Kreuzberg, the U8 to Kreuzberg and Mitte. The S-Bahn lines S41 and S42 connect the neighborhood with Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg and all districts of Berlin.
