Wilmersdorf, considered one of the greenest districts in the capital, is centrally located in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf in West-Berlin. As it is in the immediate vicinity of the Grunewald, a forest area of about 3000 hectares, many nature lovers move to Wilmersdorf so that they can enjoy city life as well as be able to retreat into the quiet forest area. There are also many apartments and houses with gardens in this district, something that people who live in areas such as Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg can’t usually enjoy.
It is also a popular neighbourhood for families. This is not only due to the generous green areas, but also to the numerous schools, nurseries and other such facilities that the district has to offer. This is proven by the fact that the birth rate in Wilmersdorf is very high in comparison to other areas in Berlin. In the northern part of the district there is a wide selection of international restaurants, elegant cafés and stylish bars. Many flats have a very chic 1920s design and are in great demand in the property market.
