An apartment can be purely functional, or it can embody an attitude to life: This 4-room apartment in Riehmers Hofgarten, an attractive 19th-century residential complex in Berlin, is a pure expression of architectural elegance. Soothing warmth and traditional flair flow through the interior, which retains its original character ceilings that soar to more than 3.50 meters, real plank flooring, arched windows and double-wing coffered doors, all of which have been painstakingly restored to their original glory.

In keeping with the stunning interior, the magnificently decorated facade of Riehmers Hofgarten also radiates an unparalleled flair. The building is surrounded by spacious courtyards and gardens with imposing street lamps. It is almost as if it were plucked from the pages of a classic Charles Dickens novel, or lifted from the Victorian streets of the London borough of Kensington.

From the traditional idyll of Riehmers Hofgarten, simply step out into the heart of modern Berlin-Kreuzberg. This vibrant and thriving district is not only home to the Bergmannkiez’s gastro mile and the bucolic scenery of Viktoriapark, it also boasts outstanding transport links. From Mehringdamm, you can easily explore Berlin’s best destinations, near and far. Kreuzberg is the epitome of Berlin, where the best of two worlds are at home. Where else could you choose between a 6-course menu in a Michelin-starred restaurant (tulus lotrek) or a delicious kebab (Mustafas Gemüse-Kebap)?

• Exceptional residential complex with spacious courtyards, private English courtyard garden and magnificent facades

• Lavish attention to detail and the highest quality materials and restoration work

• Soaring ceilings of over 3.50 meters

• Magnificent arched windows and double-winged doors

”Kreuzberg nights are long“ – the popular song from the 1980s is just as relevant today as it was back then. Kreuzberg is one of the city's trendiest neighborhoods with a well-established party culture. There's nothing you could think of that you can't find here – from rustic corner pubs to chic clubs to cozy cafés and some really unique bars. Kreuzberg's residents are just as eclectic. The neighborhood is home to people from every walk of life and ethnic background, newcomers and native Berliners, the young and the old alike.

And it is precisely this mix that accounts for Kreuzberg's perennial appeal. This isn't one of the most densely populated parts of the city without good reason! Life is good in Kreuzberg. The west, with its turn of the century period buildings, and the added bonus of the park at Gleisdreieck, is the most attractive part by architectural standards: splendid houses with lavishly decorated façades are a reminder of the rich history of this area. The quiet side streets are still paved with cobblestones, lending a charming nostalgic air. The popular area for afternoon strolls, Bergmannkiez, known to the locals as ”Kreuzberg's Ku'damm“ delights with its many street cafés, restaurants, and little shops.

      FAQs

      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • Can I obtain income from a seaside apartment?

        Yes. You can use the purchased property yourself for holidays and lease it to tourists for the rest of the time. To avoid the hassle of finding tenants and cleaning the property, it’s a wise idea to hire a management company to do all the work – these services usually cost about 20% of the rent. Take into account the length of the tourist season in the location you choose: in certain regions it will be easy to rent apartments out all year round, while in others it might only be possible to do so during the high season.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
