The district with the Tegeler See, the Tegeler Forst and the Jungfernheide is a green oasis in the north-west of the German capital and therefore not only a popular excursion destination, but it’s also attracting loads of people looking for housing. For a good reason: Lots of green and water areas in proximity and daily needs as retailers, schools, medical practices and restaurants only a short walk away.
Tegel is with 35.000 residents the 3rd biggest district in Reinickendorf. The district lives out of interesting differences. In the North one can find the Frohnauer villas, in the East the skyscaper-city Märkisches Viertel and in the south-west the green and water rich Tegel. The origin of the district lies in Alt-Tegel with its ancient church. A meadow with old small houses and trees are remains of the ancient village structure. Today one is connected to the inner-city with the near-by subway station.
To get into the pleasure of urban atmosphere one does not have to travel far in Tegel – urbanism is lived directly on the lively Berliner Straße. Besides of Cafés, small shops and medical practices one can also find a shopping mall at the Hallen am Borsigturm with neighboring cinema, bowling- and fitness studio. Only a few meters away one can find the newly designed Tegel-Center in the pedestrian zone Gorkistraße. The traditional market hall Tegel offers six days a week fresh vegetables and fruits, cheese and sausages in a variety that is unique in the city.
Living in Tegel is living in green atmosphere in the middle of the city
Tegel is a district with a solid and long grown neighborhood but it also comes to the fore of New-Berliners, especially families that look for less busy and crowded spaces in green and quiet fringes. They value the good infrastructure and the idyllic green areas. In Tegel ways between a heavily good infrastructure and walks in the green are as short as they are in no other district.
The centrally located palace garden has besides of the palace one of the most important monuments to offer: the oldest tree of Berlin, the 900 year-old oak ‘Dicke Marie’. Not enough of the oases, the Greenwich promenade invites for long walks in the middle of the city or the jetty invites for round-trips on the 450 hectare big Tegeler See. Relaxing hours can be spent in various beer gardens and shore restaurants. Extended excursions can be done by foot or bike in the close-by Tegeler Forst, where the lido at Tegeler See can be found too.
