Berlin - Checkpoint Charlie

THE PLACE TO BE – ALTE JAKOBSTRASSE 166/167


Metropolenhaus in Alte Jakobstraße 166/167 is located in the middle of a landmark-protected ensemble in the Southern Friedrichstadt – immediately next to the Bundespatentamt and diagonally opposite the IG Metall building designed by the expressionist architect Erich Mendelsohn.

In short: The Landwehrkanal and the lively Bergmann Kiez are within view to the south. The prestigious Gendarmenmarkt, the stylish Friedrichstraße shopping mile and bustling Potsdamer Platz are just a few minutes walk to the north. Everything is available, from noble to conventional to organic. The central U-Bahn lines U6 and U1 as well as numerous buses Lageplan Grundstueckstop at nearby U-Bahn station Hallesches Tor. On a historical site fronting Besselpark, the wholesale flower market hall is currently being converted for expansion of the Jewish Museum. Together with the Museum Square, a new Berlin subcenter is emerging here to generate even more cultural and creative hot spots.

Now that the real estate prices in Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg have skyrocketed, the Southern Friedrichstadt has moved into focus for urban development – a insider tip for avowed city-lovers.
