Wedding is situated in the north of Mitte and combines a wide variety of neighborhoods, which all something in common: a past as a working-class district, which can still be felt today. Living in an apartment in Wedding means living in the melting pot of cultures. The district is very green and therefore has a high recreational value. Generally, you can find here something like an an original Berlin and still the so-called Berliner Schnauze. The history of Wedding was especially during the period of the German division eventful, since the Berlin Wall divided the district into two parts. Spectacular escapes from the east took place here. The longest tunnel under the wall was dug here. In 1962, 57 Berliners managed to escape through a 145-meter-long tunnel. Today a memorial on Bernauer Strasse commemorates the division of Germany.
Wedding is very well connected to the rest of Berlin and you can be in Prenzlauer Berg or Friedrichshain very quickly. Wedding is traditionally more for living than going out. There are many restaurants, cozy and quaint pubs and nice cafes here, but for clubs you must go to other districts. In recent years the creative art scene has discovered this district for itself, and together with the long-established cultures, everything is combined here in a very special mix.
In Wedding there are spacious old apartments or social housing. Rents are still comparatively moderate and this district. This makes, together with the good connections, this district a very attractive place to live. An eye-catcher is Leopoldplatz with the Nazareth Church built by Schinkel. The Berlin99-tip: from the flak tower in Humboldthain you have the best view over Wedding and the rest of the city.
