Location

Where two worlds meet,
a special place comes into existence

The Friedrichshain lifestyle along the north bank of the Spree is well-known and treasured even beyond the bounds of Berlin. Living and working in an urban setting strikes a chord with the young, international and digital business avantgarde. Long-established crafts and new factories, established creative industries and dynamic start-ups set the limits in which an urban work-life balance exists. New projects and creative firms point the way to the future. In the meantime the immediate neighbourhood offers everything which makes Berlin unique.

East Side Gallery

Kieztour

East Side Gallery

At first a historical witness of the German partition, and now the longest open air gallery in the world, the East Side Gallery is today famous the world over. 118 artists from 21 countries decorated the largest still-existing piece of the Berlin Wall with unique and colourful motifs.
