In Neukölln you will find numerous old buildings with beautiful stucco at reasonably affordable prices. A lot has already been renovated, but often the toilet is still in the stairwell and you have to make do with a stove heater. Not all districts of Neukölln have a consistently positive image. However, many neighborhoods have a neighborhood management that strives to improve the quality of life. Sometimes the residents take the improvement of their situation into their own hands.
The so-called “Kreuzkölln” around the Weserstraße has already passed this change. The neighborhood has become a trendy district – new cafés, shops and galleries are constantly being added, as well as new residents from Mitte, Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg. Neukölln is a typical residential district, especially in the southern districts it becomes suburban-rural. Real Neukölln residents, young students and families from about 160 different nations live together in the district.
The district of Neukölln consists of the districts of Neukölln, Britz, Rudow, Buckow and Gropiusstadt. The Gropiusstadt has only been a separate district since 2002 – and divides Buckow into two parts.
