Only 10 minutes away from the Oberbaumbrücke bridge, not far from the scene clubs and international media companies on the Spree, lies the Baumschulenweg district, a gem of neighbourhood culture and the location of the HEIMATGARTEN housing project. To the north the Spree, to the east and south the Britzer Kanal, to the west the Heidekampgraben: Those who live in the Baumschulenweg could call themselves islanders. And who in Berlin already enjoys this privilege?
