Wedding

Wedding is increasingly evolving into a neighborhood you want to say 'yes' to.

Wedding has a history of finding solutions amidst struggle. This persevering neighborhood 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 apartment 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.

More than other 19th-century working class districts, the original character of Wedding has been preserved. It is said to be a place to find the Schnauze mit Herz ("big mouth and big heart") of the working class. However, that spirit is not exclusively German. The multicultural atmosphere even visible in the bilingual shop signs (German and Turkish, or German and Arabic)."

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