A Cultural Heritage

About this property

  • A building cluster that stands out from the standard architecture of its day and age – this was the idea of master builder Riehmer, which he implemented brilliantly. In the age of industrialisation, housing in this area tended to take the form of densely built tenements. Riehmer rejected the concept, aiming for high-end quality of living instead and designing a complex 18 buildings with a private street and generous garden sections in between. The result was a quiet, green idyll in the middle of the city. The landscape planning effort seeks to put it to various uses: In addition to quiet retreats embedded in richly varied verdure, there will be meeting zones for socialising among old-growth trees, but also near-natural play areas and a boules court. Horticultural elements like suspended wooden benches, natural stones and sculptures with trails and plant beds blend in harmoniously.

Local information

  • Riehmers Hofgarten is very centrally located in the heart of Kreuzberg and well connected. This makes the quarter the perfect home base for people who enjoy the vibrancy of the city with its many options but need a quiet urban retreat to come back to. Few districts of Berlin are as multicultural as Kreuzberg, where radically different approaches to life interact in a casual, tolerant and open-minded symbiosis. Opposites are appreciated for their stimulating effect, and diversity is cherished in the gastronomic sector, on street markets and in the bustling streetscape. Boutique stores, coffee roasters, Turkish produce markets, smart advertising agencies and backyard varieté theatres – it’s the blend that makes Kreuzberg so charming. And it is nicely complemented by parks, green areas and canalside hangouts as well as by a rich art and culture scene.
