The Wrangelkiez is a neighbourhood of the early 20th century, it is in the former western part of Berlin. It’s a very special postion because it’s at the extremity of west berlin.
It’s located in Kreuzberg, which is administrativly part of “Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain”. An area combining Friedrichshain on the east-side and Kreuzberg on the west side.
Wrangelkiez is a pretty young area, the average age is 36,9 years old, and it’s where the most amount of foreigners (33,71% officially but the number vary from 22,5 to 40%). It’s anyway hard to know really, because many of people are staying for a short time and are not registred.
It’s a really active area, with the most amount of art cluster and music companies (and bands). But also a poor area, the average monthly income is one of the lowest of Berlin.
Oberbaumbrücke is the only bridge linking Kreuzberg to Friedrichshain. It became a symbol of the reunification in 89, linking west and east.
This area is now changing a lot, but let’s do everything to keep Wrangelkiez, creative, free, cheap and real.
