Cheap apartments in Karlshorst

Karlshorst is located in the Lichtenberg district and has a suburban character. In general, Karlshorst is a very tranquil place to live, as it has various well-preserved types of buildings from the Wilhelminian period, as well as housing estates and large, stately villas where you can buy an apartment. Recently some of the old buildings have been renovated and new ones planned. These buildings enhance the value of the place without overloading it. Karlshorst is best known for its trotting track and the campus of the University of Applied Sciences (HTW).

Directly next to Karlshorst, which is dominated by villas, lies the Friedrichsfelde, which appears completely different from an architectural and socio-cultural point of view, with its famous zoo, which the people of Karlshorst like to choose as a destination for their excursions. Strong greenery and a family-friendly atmosphere give Karlshorst an increased capital value and attract more and more families. Not least for these reasons some also compare the district with the more southern Dahlem.
