There used to be a busy industrial port here, but the operation largely came to a standstill with the division of Germany. The first conversion took place in the 1980s: as part of the international building exhibition, new residential buildings were built by well-known architects.
In the meantime, the old harbor with its idyllic location between Tegeler See and Tegeler Fließ has become a trendy residential area. Not only are there elegant city villas on the shore, but also the so-called ‘floating houses’. If you stroll through the harbor here, the modern architecture will remind you of Copenhagen or Stockholm and you will quickly forget that you are still in the middle of Berlin.
