We’ll start with an area just below the apartment called the “Präsidentendreieck“. During the warmer months, many people come down to sunbathe on the lawn in front of the Bellevue Palace, and at night, they come to take in the fresh air by the river.
The Moabiter Werder runs along the north bank of the Spree River. The site has a long history dating back to the 13th century when it was first settled. In the 17th century, Elector Friedrich Wilhelm I expanded his hunting grounds there. Today, the area is mostly residential and is home to members of the Bundestag and federal government employees. Notable buildings in the area include the Ministry of the Interior, which was built between 2010 and 2014, a police and fire station, and a school. Additionally, the area is being enhanced with the addition of restaurants and parks.
