Expat Guide for Berlin
Living and working in Berlin
If you want to live centrally in Berlin, you should take a look around the districts Mitte, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Schöneberg. Friedrichshain and Neukölln are considered to be the trendiest districts, while Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg are particularly popular with residents and tourists and are considered „more upscale“ and where there are many beautiful old buildings.
The outer districts of Berlin, such as Steglitz and Spandau, are mainly characterised by residential areas, which makes them particularly attractive for families. Many hip young families have also settled in Prenzlauer Berg. Treptow-Köpenick is one of the greenest districts in Berlin and especially suitable for people who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
A detailed list of the individual residential areas and what distinguishes them can be found in this Expat Guide Berlin. In addition, we have compiled some insider tips for you with scene locations that you must have visited in Berlin.
