Weserstrasse with its classic Berlin period buildings is located in the eastern end of Friedrichshain in a quiet residential area. Tree-lined streets with wide pavements define the streetscape of this area. As you move away from the arteries nearby, you will find peaceful neighbourhoods that consist mainly of well-refurbished older buildings.
Just a short walk from Weserstrasse lies Boxhagener Platz, a square well known beyond the borough boundaries and colloquially referred to simply as “Boxi,” while actually protected as a horticultural landmark. People get together here just to spend time or to watch their children romp around the playground. On Saturdays, it hosts a street market. While there are many other parks and green spaces in the area, the best place to go for extended walks is the promenade along the riverbank and around the lake-like Rummelburger Bucht, which is also a suitable destination for day trips.
The vicinity of Weserstrasse offers all the advantages of a conveniently accessible local transportation network. Both a rapid transit station and an underground stop lie within walking distance and connect the location with the inner city. Local transport hubs such as “Frankfurter Tor” or “Warschauer Strasse” provide quick links to the “Ostbahnhof” railway station or to Schönefeld airport.
The livability of the neighbourhood around Weserstrasse is further enhanced by the nearby high street Frankfurter Allee with its boutique stores and major shopping centres. At its western end, this artery merges with Karl-Marx-Allee which will take you directly to downtown East Berlin.
Amenities in the wider catchment of Weserstrasse include the expansive Tierpark Friedrichsfelde zoo, the sprawling Treptower Park, and the Herzberge landscape park farther east.
But it is also a great place to live if you fancy the vibrant big-city life. In addition to many quiet corners, the urban neighbourhoods are dotted with cafés and restaurants for just about every taste, along with galleries and cinemas and even major event venues like Mercedes-Benz Arena.
