Eventful history. Eventful present.
This city is promising. Increasing population figures, a stable economy, a large number of job opportunities, moderate living costs, and room for any type of lifestyle offer perspectives for Berlin’s citizens as well as anyone who is looking to become one. The number of people moving into the city attests to its attractiveness. Not only students stay. There are new Berliners from across Germany and from anywhere around the world, and they all benefit from the quality of life in and the infrastructure of the city, which can easily compete with any other city in the world.
PANKOW – District of superlatives
The city’s most densely populated district, Pankow, stretches from the east of the city at Alexanderplatz up to the border of the city state to Barnim Nature Park. Since the area reform in 2001, this district comprises the former districts of Pankow, Prenzlauer Berg, and Weißensee, and it is home to more than 400,000 people – a district with wide green space and idyllic parks, trendy neighbourhoods, and historical cultural sights, attractive living quarters, and flourishing business sites.
This is how what is now Pankow unites the cool creative vividness of Prenzlauer Berg with its green surroundings and its lively art and gallery scenes of Weißensees with the low-maintenance cosiness of family-friendly living in Pankow. The relatively central location and the proximity to the rural outskirts of the city, but also the availability of medical care, kindergartens, and primary schools, school and leisure options, as well as the extensive local transport network with trams, the S-Bahn city metro, and the underground and bus contribute to the attractiveness of this district.
