The charm of the Wilhelminian era in Prenzlauer Berg’s oldest residential building

square meters

Built in the 1850s, this listed building fulfills the dreams of those who love Berlin’s Wilhelminian architectural style: the sandstone façade, historic stucco work and classic old-style floor plans make the building an absolute rarity.

The majority of the apartments and commercial units are currently leased. No tenant pre-purchase right exists, and a termination of the lease for the landlords personal use seems possible within the statutory notice period.

Wilhelminian elegance and atmosphere

The six apartments and two commercial units in the front building offer all the comforts and charm of an historical Berlin apartment building: spacious floor plans, high ceilings and classic materials in the interior.

A building characterized by historical finesse

It is the oldest residential building in Prenzlauer Berg and was renovated a few years ago in close cooperation with the Department for the Protection of Historical Monuments. Since then, the structure has shone in its former glory and impresses with historical details.

The oldest apartment house in Prenzlauer Berg
After, in 1840, the large landowner Wilhelm Griebenow sold the plot located at 55 Schönhauser Allee, it remained largely unbuilt until 1858, when the stonemason Rudolf Müller had the existing front building constructed as his summer residence. The building is now a listed structure and is the oldest surviving residential building in Prenzlauer Berg.
