Exerzierstraße almost inconspicuously takes a curve from lively Badstraße to Schulstraße, leading directly to Leopoldplatz, one of the most known places in Wedding. The streetscape is mostly characterized by classical Berlin style old buildings from the beginning of the 20th century combined with new- or 80’s-buildings.
While Wedding is known as one of the liveliest districts in the city, you’d almost doubt this in the quiet, tree lined Exerzierstraße. In direct neighborhood loads of green areas and planted places, as for example at the shores of Panke or in the open designed backyards, can be found. But only a few steps away the bustling, typical places of Wedding can be reached, where numerous retailers and bars can be found. Life seems to take place on the street and faces seem familiar all around Nazarethkirche at Leopoldplatz or at the Park at Brunnenplatz that unveils a nice view on the districts court – an impressive listed building in Gothic Revival style.
In direct neighborhood of Exerzierstraße every important retailer, ranging from the small shop around the corner to the big shopping palace at Gesundbrunnen, can be used for daily needs. Ideal infrastructure is guaranteed through two subway lines, one tram station at close-by Osloer Straße and numerous bus lines making it feasible to discover the city above its borders.
If you’d like to get an authentic picture of the district Wedding, a visit to the theater ‘Gutes Wedding, Schlechtes Wedding’ on Müllerstraße is a must. The district is threated lovely and with lots of humor taken onto the stage at a high level – a very special declaration of love. Afterwards you’ll walk with more open eyes through the district and feel even more comfortable. There is enough reason to have this feeling. Some value the multicultural mix. Others the informal togetherness, that can be felt especially during summer months in places like Nettelbeckplatz or Sparrplatz at Sprengelkiez. As soon as days get warmer, a walk along the river Panke, which shores are an oasis in the big city bustle, is a recommended activity. In winter times the Erika-Hess- Eisstadion invites young and old onto its ice-track.
Wedding returns more and more in the focus of new- and original Berliners. Here a growing district culture developed over the last years that created offers for youngsters and families. The range goes from Co-Working spaces and ateliers to institutions like Labyrinth Kindermuseum, the Klingende Museum Berlin and the Atze Musiktheater offering events for schools, daycare centers and families. Additionally the direct neighborhood to the more exclusive district Mitte make Wedding as residential address more and more attractive.
