Berlin's downtown district of Wilmersdorf is a great place for combining urban living with a green environment. The stunning neighbourhood consists largely of period buildings that date back to the Belle Époque, and that account for much of the district's charm. Close to Wexstrasse, the parklands of Volkspark Wilmersdorf extend as a lush green belt all the way to neighbouring Schöneberg. The location also comes with convenient access to the public transportation network, the “Bundesplatz” underground and rapid transit station lying within walking distance. Served by the circle line, this station provides quick access to all other boroughs. Retail amenities are just as
convenient, with non-discretionary retailers in the vicinity and high-street shopping venues just a short commute away on Schlossstrasse or Kurfürstendamm. All things considered, buying a condominium in Wilmersdorf is a worthwhile investment, not least because of the capital appreciation upside in what is one of best areas in Berlin. Even today, rents in the greater borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf count among the highest asking rents anywhere in the city. This makes it quite safe to assume that rent rates will keep pushing up, because the demand for housing keeps growing as well.
