The true center of Berlin is a green and tranquil place – between high class and high life

Close to gently lapping waters, in direct dialogue with the multiple epicenters of the German capital: the Hansa Quarter is something of an invisible celebrity. West of the federal government and east of Charlottenburg, it occupies an area of interplay between global issues and entrenched bourgeoisie.

Major destinations such as the embassy district on Tiergartenstraße and Berlin’s main train station are all within very easy reach. Thanks to the district’s well-developed infrastructure, the zoo and Friedrichstraße merge into one meaningful neighborhood: your own.

Founded in 1874, the district represents the old center of Berlin. Today, quiet Claudiusstrasse, a street lined with discreet period buildings, is part of the historic neighborhood to the north of the modern architectural settlement. A place that lives and breathes history.

Encircled by the Spree River, nestled in the verdant greenery of the Tiergarten, flanked by Straße des 17. Juni, this is where life can be lived in almost complete seclusion – and yet still in the middle of it all: in the quiet eye of the big city.
