Berlin is undoubtedly a fascinating city and if you want to move there to buy or rent an apartment you need to consider carefully which neighbourhood you want to move to. There are several where you can get a great apartment and have all the facilities that you need right on your doorstep.
The Mitte neighbourhood is one of the most diverse in the city. It has everything you need from designer stores to high street stores, friendly cafes and world class restaurants and plenty of employment opportunities. The history of the area is apparent – this part of the city is home to the Reichstag, the Jewish Memorial and the Brandenburger Tor.
If you are moving your family to Berlin with you then consider the Prenzlauer Berg district. It is a very popular area with young families and this is because it is a safe, clean and friendly neighbourhood, with a lot of things for families to do. It is also an area that has become known for health food, with plenty of vegan cafes and organic food stores. Here you can find both apartments and houses that are suitable for families.
If you are looking for an area of the city that will support a fun lifestyle then head to Friedrichshain. The housing here is considered to be affordable and the area has plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops.

For a cultured lifestyle try Kreuzberg. This area is popular with students and artists and it is one of those places where there is always something going on including art exhibitions. There are plenty of bars and the good news is that apartments and houses are very reasonably priced here.
