Berlin Properties Wilmersdorf 2023

Wilmersdorf includes Schmargendorf and Grunewald with very divergent residential structures. The chic Grunewald with its spacious villas, the small-town Schmargendorf and the more densely built Wilmersdorf are unequal siblings. In addition to well-preserved Wilhelminian style buildings, the quarters are today interspersed with numerous new buildings, which does not harm the popularity of Wilmersdorf in the least.


Classic, elegant and a bit conservative

Wilmersdorf is an elegant, bourgeois district without any smugness. The exclusive, partly a bit conservative character is definitely appreciated by the residents. Exclusive quarters can be found in the Grunewald districts, urban neighbourhoods in turn in the inner-city locations of the district. In the 1920s, many artists and intellectuals moved to Wilmersdorf. An attractive and lively downtown with cafés and theatres grew up in the west of Berlin. The noble Grunewald quarter was not far away and was an excellent location for the Berlin Bohemians. The Nazis put an abrupt end to the cultural heyday in Wilmersdorf and many Wilmersdorfers were forced into exile for political reasons or because of their Jewish origins. Today, important scientific and cultural institutions and agencies are located in Wilmersdorf. Numerous galleries are located here, as well as the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz. Some embassies in Grunewald and Schmargendorf are located in the immediate vicinity of the private residences of their ambassadors.

Neighbourhoods in Berlin Wilmersdorf

The reconstruction of the quarters in Wilmersdorf, which were destroyed in the Second World War, was carried out with relatively small means and the town planning was oriented for many years to the concept of the car-friendly town. During this time, little consideration was given to the historical structure of the building. In the 1970s many squares and quarters were upgraded again. The residents of Wilmersdorf feel very close to their surroundings. The quarter around the Bundesplatz is a good middle-class residential area with a mixture of old buildings and properties from the 1950s. A worldwide unique residential project, "The Snake" ("Schlange"), was realised in the 1970s in the district of Schmargendorf with a motorway overpass. Not far away are the Rüdesheimer Platz and the surrounding Rheingauviertel, which was planned and built in the English country house style. The apartments in this quarter - which are in great demand - are spacious and are located in four-storey houses. In 2015, the New York Times voted Rüdesheimer Strasse in Wilmersdorf one of the twelve most scenic streets in Europe. The residential area along Uhlandstrasse is also very popular, where many high-quality new construction projects have been developed in recent years. The apartments in the core region of the Ludwigkirchplatz and Olivaer Platz areas are mostly very large and luxurious. The Wilhelminian style houses impress with their beautiful facades and well-kept front gardens.
