The charismatic neighbourhood of Belfort, Prenzlauer Berg, was once home to punk movements and GDR opposition members. Nowadays, while preserving its bohemian charm, it has become one of the chicest areas of Berlin. The area is particularly popular with families, students, artists and well-known personalities of the German cultural scene.

The building dates back to the so-called Gründerzeit, a historical period in the mid-19th century characterised by scientific and economic progress in Germany and Austria. The rise in urban residential complexes allowed for the creation and diffusion of a new architectural design with beautifully decorated facades that were inspired by the work of classical masters. Something that still fascinates visitors and locals.

Belfort preserves the historic facade and combines it with modern colonial interior design. Carefully selected shades of colour, hand-picked details and curated art make Belfort a true urban oasis. The Mediterranean garden in the courtyard with shades of pink and tropical vegetation gives it a relaxing atmosphere and allows you to forget that you are in the heart of a Metropole.


Belfort pays homage to the past and celebrates the present by combining old-school glamour with modern design. The result is an inspiring space that enhances comfort and homely feel.
