Reuterkiez is officially a part of Neukölln. Yet it seems that Kreuzberg did not want anything to do with it, so the emerging neighbourhood was turned without much ado into Kreuzkölln and is now one of Berlin’s popular residential areas. Charming cafés, galleries and interesting little shops populate the commercial areas of the old buildings and bring life into and onto the streets, and it is especially Reuterplatz and Weichselplatz as well as the fantastically beautiful Maybachufer that are used for strolling, relaxation and getting together on warm days and shopping sprees on market days. Leaving its dubious backyard-idyll behind, this neighbourhood lives Berlin’s multicultural image like no other. Kreuzkölln celebrates its individuality in a family-friendly, generation-spanning and broad-minded manner.
Donuts – the backed dough rings with sweet decoration – are freshly-baked in different tasteful variations without any animal ingredients in Berlin’s first 100% vegan donut shop.
The most beautiful harbour bar in Berlin – without an actual harbour offers maritime knickknack, a colourful, relaxed and mixed audience, a diverse breakfast menu and homemade lunch meals until 4pm. Savoury snacks and fabulous drinks are served in the evening.
Five Elephant is a specialty coffee micro roastery and bakery in Kreuzberg. Various trade fair coffee sorts as well as the best New York Cheese Cake outside of Big Apple are being served.
About the Project
The cherry on the top
This corner building, situated not only in one of Berlin’s most favourite neighbourhoods, but also at one of its most beautiful locations, is highly popular. With one staircase leading to Maybachufer and other two leading to Pannierstrasse, the building offers 41 units, without side or transverse wings. Following their renovation in 1993, all three stairwells contain lifts that reach the middle floors. On this occasion, the attic was also expanded and equipped with heat insulation on the street as well as the court side. Some flats have a balcony and enjoy partly magnificent views of the Landwehrkanal. We are helping this pearl shine in new brilliance with a new coat of paint, overhauled staircase and a thoughtfully designed courtyard.
A love for detail
As it is typical of Berlin’s older buildings, the 41 flats have various layouts and equipment details. The high ceilings create special ambience, especially on the lower floors, while the balconies overlooking the street offer outdoor space, at least in some of the flats, that all units have basement areas and the yard is planned for common use.
