Insider tip: Lichtenberg

Lichtenberg borders on the two trend districts Friedrichshain and Pankowa, and on Marzahn-Hellersdorf. The proximity to these localities, as well as good S and U-bahn connections to the city’s centre, have made Lichtenberg increasingly popular. This quarter has long been an insider tip for young people and students alike.

Lichtenberg is constantly underestimated and even more often overlooked. That’s why it’s worth taking a second, much closer look, at this part of Berlin. It is a young environment with lots of culture and variety and a sense of community.

Lichtenberg lies in the east of Berlin to the east of Lichtenberg station. The station provides the district with its own main line station. It is also well-connected to the local public transport network with S and U-bahn trains, trams and buses. You often need to take a second, closer look at Lichtenberg to see the charm it has to offer: most of the time it’s hidden behind the socialistic architecture.


A bit wacky but warm – that’s Lichtenberg

Vanessa is a real Berliner. She was born in Lichtenberg and grew up in Mahlsdorf, in the eastern part of the city. She explains why Lichtenberg is so unique and quite simply the best place on Earth: for one it’s the different people, for another it’s the flair which makes Lichtenberg what it is – because Lichtenberg is like Berlin, only smaller. And not to forget, of course, the warmth and friendliness that the Lichtenbergers exhibit.

Vanessa the trainee loves Lichtenberg because of its uniqueness.

Vanessa is 21 and doing a training at the Ministry of Justice. She likes coming home after work. Because the neighbours greet each other and help each other wherever they can. And she has found a real friend in one of her neighbours too.

For Vanessa Lichtenberg is like a miniature edition of Berlin. “It’s always good when different cultures meet,” she says. She decided to move to this district because it doesn’t take her long to get to the office – or anywhere else either for that matter.

Vanessa loves the special moments that you can only find in Lichtenberg: a little dance, for example, with a complete stranger on her way home. Or a quick chat with someone she only just met in the morning before work, who then goes on to wish her a nice day at the office. For Venessa this is the Berlin which she calls home.
