Where is Kreuzkölln - Property Investment in Berlin

One of the latest "hype" areas in ther berlin housing market is Kreuzkölln or Kreukoelln for those who do'nt have the benefit of a German keyboard. This is an artificial name made up by the two districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln.

It is a region of less than 1 km² with a popolation of about 18.500. It is also defined as the "Reuter Kiez" because the square "Reuter Platz" defines its center. To the north and east it boarders onto Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain at the Maybachufer of the Landwehrkanal and Kottbusser Damm. Sonnenallee, Wildenbruchstrasse and Kiehlufer are the boarders towards the other parts of Neukölln.

Having been one of the problem zones and social hot spots of the district the area has developed into a trend area like Friedrichshain after Prenzlauer Berg was over subscribed. There are currently no shops available for rent as every possible space is turned into a cafe, restaurant or other trend-shop. This so called "gentrification" led to an attempt to verbally expand the area of Kreuzkölln e.g. to Flughafenstrasse.
