Our core regions
Deutsche Wohnen’s property portfolio in Greater Berlin is both large and architecturally diverse. In addition to six world-famous UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Berlin Modernism (‘Berliner Moderne’) style, its 116,000 holdings include estates from the 1950s and 1960s, large housing developments from the 1980s and 1990s, and historic buildings from the late 19th/early 20th century. The holdings in Greater Berlin are located throughout the city itself and also outside it – especially in Brandenburg’s state capital, Potsdam.
Deutsche Wohnen has a total portfolio of approximately 14,000 units in the Rhine/Main region. This comprises a wide range of residential units with a focus on apartments in the metropolitan regions of Frankfurt, Mainz, Ludwigshafen and Mannheim. In addition to housing estates dating from throughout the last century, classic historic buildings from the late 19th/early 20th century and luxurious new properties form a key part of the portfolio.
The Deutsche Wohnen portfolio in the Hanover/Braunschweig metropolitan area is made up of some 9,000 units and offers something for everyone. Just over half of the holdings are on standard housing estates in and around Hanover and Braunschweig, while the remainder consists of historic buildings and individual properties in the cities – some in central locations.
Deutsche Wohnen owns approximately 14,000 units in the metropolitan areas in central Germany, with an attractive combination of properties on housing estates and historic buildings. In regional terms, there is a strong focus on Dresden and Leipzig, which together account for just over half of the holdings. Deutsche Wohnen has considerably expanded its portfolio in these two cities in recent years, adding high-quality historic buildings. Its portfolio in Magdeburg, Halle (Saale), Erfurt and Chemnitz is also dominated by historic properties, including architecturally impressive buildings from the early 20th century.
With around 5,000 units on standard housing estates in Kiel and Lübeck, Deutsche Wohnen also has a presence in northern Germany. Most of the holdings in this region are located in Schleswig-Holstein’s state capital, Kiel, and blend into the cityscape. Meanwhile, the properties in Lübeck – famous for its marzipan and once part of the Hanseatic League – can be found on standard housing estates dating from the mid-20th century and boast excellent transport links both locally and nationally.
Consisting of some 5,000 units, Deutsche Wohnen’s portfolio in the Rhineland stretches from Dusseldorf in the North to Konstanz in the South. It features a wide range of architectural styles and also includes holdings in cities such as Bonn and Wiesbaden. The properties were constructed in various eras, from the late 19th/early 20th century and the post-war period to the 1990s.
