Buying a Condominium in Berlin-Mitte: At Home in the Heart of the City
The so-called Scheunenviertel quarter north of Monbijoupark is a particularly charming part of downtown Berlin. “Scheunen” means “barns” in German and, hard as it may be to believe, there were barns set against the city walls here until the late 17th century still, whereas today the streets are lined with trendy galleries and restaurants in lavishly refurbished period buildings. But the touch of bygone times is palpable everywhere you look. Take, for instance, the Heckmann-Höfe complex, a former timber trading yard with livery stables that has lately becomes a creative media centre with studios and restaurants. Or take the New Synagogue which dominates Oranienburger Strasse with its golden cupola.
