Overall assessment on the Berlin scale

Mitte is one of the Berlin boroughs with the heaviest load: With 8 out of 20 planning areas with five- and fourfold load (i.e. 40.0 %), a disproportionally high number of areas with high loads are situated here. This problem becomes even more evident in view of the number of inhabitants. Mitte accounts for almost half of all affected inhabitants in Berlin who live in the areas with the heaviest loads (99,481 out of altogether 204,116 of all Berlin inhabitants (48.7 %)).

Spatial focal points of the multiple load

The northern districts of Wedding outside of the S-Bahn ring (PLAs Westliche Müllerstraße, Reinickendorfer Straße, Sparrplatz, Soldiner Straße, Gesundbrunnen) as well as western Moabit (PLAs Beusselkiez, Heidestraße) are areas with particularly high loads. The historical city centre also forms an area with significant load; by contrast, Spandauer and Rosenthaler Vorstadt (PLAs Oranienburger Straße, Charité-Viertel, Invalidenstraße) are subareas with a comparatively lower load in the borough.

Thematic focal points of the multiple load

The thermal load in the usually very densely built-up areas is a pervasive problem (high categories). Whereas the prognosis area Centre (0101) is characterised by high air pollution almost throughout, the other prognosis areas to a higher extent include planning areas with a medium load. As regards the distribution of the social condition, the situation is reversed; here the prognosis area Centre (0101) – in contrast to the other prognosis areas – can largely be classified as average, in parts even as good.

Number of affected persons in the planning areas with a particularly high load

The particular load of the prognosis areas Gesundbrunnen (0103) and Wedding (0104) and to a lesser extent Moabit (0102) becomes evident when the population numbers in the highest load categories 4 and 5 are included. Out of altogether 348,102 inhabitants (28.7 %), 99,481 people live in these prognosis areas.

Overall assessment on the Berlin scale

The Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg borough belongs to the most heavily disadvantaged boroughs in Berlin with respect to environmental justice. Two- to threefold loads of the planning areas are the norm. The number of inhabitants negatively affected by several core indicators is also higher than in the Berlin average (borough 212,898 (77.8 %), Berlin 1,771,903 people affected (50.4 %)).

Spatial focal points of the multiple load

The borough as a whole is a focal point of the loads; only some planning areas, for example next to the Tempelhofer Freiheit (PLA Chamissokiez), in eastern Kreuzberg (east and west of the Görlitzer Park, PLAs Reichenberger Straße, Wrangelkiez) and in western Friedrichshain (PLAs Barnimkiez, Weberwiese) show a onefold load.

Thematic focal points of the multiple load

Except for the noise load (which is slightly below the average), all core indicators and the social condition are worse than in the Berlin average. Thus, there is a need for action in nearly all fields of environmental justice.

Number of affected persons in the planning areas with a particularly high load

The share of inhabitants from Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg who live in a load-free planning area is very low. 77.8 % (212,898 nhabitants) live in planning areas with at least a twofold load. Consequently, along with the challenges resulting from the social condition, they are also exposed to at least one health impairment.
