Osthafen Berlin

Osthafen Berlin

A panorama of the Osthafen Berlin.
The photo was taken at the blue hour and shows a view from the Oberbaum Bridge over the Spree.

Until the 1990s, coal tugboats and cargo ships were still docked here, because the Osthafen was an important inland port and elementary for the supply of the city.

Today, the former port and industrial area is considered a “filet piece” of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.

The historic warehouse buildings are a popular location for the creative scene; for example, Universal Music and MTV Germany are headquartered here.
In addition, striking new buildings such as the Hotel nhow Berlin have been created, which also bring the Spree embankment architecturally into the 21st century.

From coals and potatoes to hipster hotspot – the development of Berlin’s Osthafen is truly remarkable.
