Friedrichshain is currently a highly sought-after district with about 116,000 inhabitants. The central location and many bars, clubs and stores attract a young population, with an average age of 37,5 years, making it the youngest district of Berlin.
Historically, Friedrichshain used to be a working class quarter filled with dark alleys and small apartments. Because of heavy destruction during World War II, it was re-built and developed into a neighborhood favored by students and young families. Today, it has become a very stimulating borough with lots to see and experience. Friedrichshain is also a very friendly place when it comes to apartment rentals in Berlin.
Enjoy the variety of the international scene, hip start-ups and the spirit of young urban creativity. The Boxhagener Platz and the Samariterkiez with their lordly Altbauten located in Friedrichshain rank among the most demanded areas in the whole city. You also shouldn’t skip Karl-Marx Allee, the biggest open air gallery in the world.Show more
