Wedding

Old factory buildings, preserved flat blocks, and a nice place for artists to grow up.

Wedding has a history of finding solutions amidst struggle. This persevering neighbourhood was the site of one of the first secret tunnels aiding East Berlin refugees during WWII, and later survived being razed in the name of urban renewal. Now, Wedding is a mix of UNESCO protected flat blocks that recall the toil of the working class, graffiti-clad factory buildings, and a growing population of young artists attracted by Wedding’s hard-knock roots and unwavering resiliency.

Rooted in the firm infrastructure of 19th century architecture, many of Wedding's buildings stand in stark contrast to its later-built no-nonsense facades.

Despite the buildings' disparity in appearances, many locals express deep affection for both of the neighbourhood's styles.
