We live in a great neighborhood. We are not far from the heart of the city where all of the main tourism is. We are really a short 20 minute walk or hop on the UBahn and it will take less than 10! The neighborhood has a main church that is currently under renovation on the inside, but the grounds are used for pop-up markets or soccer games with the kids. The church is that pretty yellow that so building are here- it is right on the end of our street and welcomes us down the street as we head home. We also have two grocery stores, two bakeries, coffee shop, soup shop, yarn shop, chocolate store (where they make the chocolate in the window), a "werkhaus" (which sounds scary but is a shop of homemade arts and crafts!), flower shop, many cafes, a bar where the patrons only get loud on "football" night, many parks, lots of families and kids. It feels like home.
