Berlin has a great international reputation for its creative economy, as a hotspot of the most innovative start-ups and as an inspirational cultural center. Above all, though, the city counts among Europe's most important locations when it comes to higher education. This attracts young people from all over the world, which in turn has led to high demand for modern studio apartments.
STUDIO HOUSE BERLIN adresses the demand, offering students and apprentices ideal living space for rent. At the same time, it provides investors a chance to participate in Berlin's strong real estate market.
Cafés, restaurants, shops and markets are what makes the districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg so popular. However, Berlin is also a green city, with more than 2,500 different parks and gardens. The Mauerpark is a shining example.
It's a popular meeting place for culture, sports and recreation. Its special atmosphere makes it a hot spot for young singles and families.
The park complex is planned to be extended from 9 to 16 hectares in 2016. It is located right beside the public arenas of the Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark and the Max-Schmeling-Halle, where great sporting and cultural events take place.
The shops, cinemas and fitness clubs in the area and the nearby shopping malls, Gesundbrunnen Center and Schönhauser Allee Arkaden, ensure there is no shortage of choice. It's all part of the mix that makes Berlin so livable.
All institutes of higher education can easily be reached from STUDIO HOUSE BERLIN by bus, tram and subway. The nearby transport hub Gesundbrunnen is also connected with regional, national and international rail routes.
With four universities, the Charité university hospital, five technical colleges, two church-run and 28 private colleges of higher education and more than 70 non-university research institutions, Berlin is Germany's biggest science base.
Berlin is an international city in which people from all over the world have made their homes. The threeday “Carnival of Cultures” that takes place at Pentecost weekend gives a good impression of this ethnic and cultural diversity.
Almost one in ten Berliners works in the media and entertainment sector, which generates about 13 percent of the city's economic activity. Worldwide, only London has a higher proportion.
Berlin is also the city with the highest density of art galleries. Estimates put the number of galleries at about 350. One highlight of the art scene calendar is the annual “Gallery Weekend”, which is held jointly by numerous galleries and art institutions.
In 2015, the capital's hotels posted new visitor records, making Berlin number 3 in Europe for tourism. Experts put the boom down to the broad range of events in Berlin and the unique “spirit of the city”.
More than 6.5 percent of Berlin is made up of lakes and waterways. Within the city limits, there are navigable canals, 13 lakes and five rivers with over 360 kilometers of shoreline. The city is home to about 60 rowing clubs and more than 100 sailing clubs.
