Honoured condominiums in Lichtenberg - a district on the upswing

For a long time, Lichtenberg was one of the districts that polarized Berlin the most. The image and thus the reputation of this district has changed significantly in recent years.

Not only the popular Victoria city and Karlshorst, which is literally adorned with old buildings and single-family villas, is sought-after by investors and young families. In all neighbourhoods, renovations and the development of vacant, unused spaces increase the value of this district. Lichtenberg is experiencing an upswing, not least due to the reconstruction of the Ostkreuz railway station.

Buying an apartment in Lichtenberg is attractive, as both the expansion of the infrastructure and the renovation of the old buildings here are being driven forward. The proximity to the neighbouring district of Friedrichshain has had a strong influence on Lichtenberg’s popularity over the past decade. Nevertheless, compared to the rest of Berlin, the apartments are extremely moderately priced.

For a 60 square metre apartment in Lichtenberg, that amounts to a purchase price of around €268,080; for an 80 square metre apartment, about €357,440. Spacious new apartments of 120 square metres cost around €536,160.

Given the tight housing market in Berlin right now and the low level of residential construction activity in relation to demand, a further increase in purchase prices for apartments in Lichtenberg can be expected, especially given the neighbourhood’s high desirability.

Increase in value through new construction projects

The age trend for those who buy an apartment in Berlin Lichtenberg is clearly on the rise. Although the district is also popular with younger students for temporary living, older Berliners, for whom the various neighbourhoods have become their home, prefer to settle here.
This gives Lichtenberg a quieter appearance at many corners, which makes the district, which is optimally connected to the city centre, a pleasant place to retreat.

Living in Lichtenberg

Where is it best for you to live? A condominium in Lichtenberg is interesting for those who need a good connection to Berlin’s centre, but are not averse to the charm of a suburban idyll, as you will find in the coveted districts of Karlshorst or Rummelsburg.
