Diversity every day of the year. The quarter around Exerzierstrasse offers a wide variety of leisure, shopping and sports venues. The nearby area close to the Uferhallen complex reflects the special joie-de-vivre of the quarter. For ten years now, studios for contemporary dance have occupied the listed landmark brick building and have risen to the status of an internationally renowned institution during this time. Other tenants who have moved into the premises over the years include artists, start-up businesses, restaurants and one-off event venues.
Characteristic Brick Buildings with Custom Layouts
These two multi-unit dwellings on Exerzierstrasse in Berlin-Wedding occupy a corner plot between two quiet side streets. Striking to note are the large window expanses and the unique floor plans, which make these residential buildings from 1989 stand out from their surroundings.
Their façades will be repainted in a bright, harmonious colour scheme in conjunction with the refurbishment scheduled for late 2018/early 2019. The brick foundation of the right-hand house with its pointed façade will be cleaned and preserved in its specific structure. The six-storey building includes an attic floor and features two entranceways and a beautifully arranged courtyard with play areas, benches and trees. The housing estate is supplemented by a hexagonal tower building of five floors.
Residing and Living Close to a Creek
Exerzierstrasse is a residential street located between Osloer Strasse, Nauener Platz and Pankstrasse along the boundary separating the sub-districts Wedding and Gesundbrunnen. This part of Wedding counts among the more quiet ones in the district. Not far away, the Panke creek meanders through a scenic landscape that is just right for summertime picnics or leisurely walks. While itself quiet, the site lies only about one kilometre away from vibrant Leopoldplatz and, in the opposite direction, from the teeming streets close to the “Gesundbrunnen” station with its annexed mall, Gesundbrunnen-Center, and the many small storefronts and bars that mirror the multicultural life of the neighbourhood.
Languages other than German that are spoken here include Spanish, Arabic, English, Danish, among others: People from many different countries meet in Wedding and set the scene for a carefree and vibrant way of life.
