Kreuzberg: new living & working

Traces of the Berlin Wall
For almost thirty years, the Berlin Wall ran as an insurmountable border between the two Berlin districts of Kreuzberg and Mitte. In 1990 it was demolished, leaving behind large inner-city wastelands. Today there are exciting housing projects to be discovered in this former no-man’s land – many built by building groups. These private initiatives give more weight to aesthetics and ecology than to financial aspects. The result is a varied and innovative architecture in which sustainability and community play an important role. The route along the former Wall strip starts at the Spreefeld building group project and leads via Engeldamm and Engelbecken to Moritzplatz.
