The district Kreuzberg
Kreuzberg is the smallest district and belongs to Berlin's inner city. Unlike most other districts, Kreuzberg did not develop out of a rural village but was formed in 1920 as part of a major administrative reform out of the southern Friedrichstadt, Tempelhofer Vorstadt and Luisenstadt districts. It was named after the highest peak in the area, the Kreuzberg Mountain, which in turn took its name from the monument to the Freedom War (1813-15), topped with an Iron Cross, erected there by Karl-Friedrich Schinkel.
During the Second World War large sections of the district were destroyed, such as parts of the government quarter and the Ritterstrasse commercial area. The working class sections between the Spree River and the Landwehr Canal remained almost completely undamaged.
The district is located between Berlin's old city and the recreational areas to the east (Treptower Park).

Great apartment, in a nice quiet location within easy walking distance to everything you could need. Rene was helpful and met me when I arrived late at night. Apartment was exactly what we needed and the sofas were very comfortable - perfect for relaxing in after a day out on your feet.
As someone has previously mentioned, the photos aren't of the apartment that I stayed in (I think Rene has three properties in the building), although similar, the furniture is different (dated) and a bit tired in appearance - not that this mattered to us it was fine for what we needed.
There are four bedrooms, although to gain access to the smallest one you have to go through the largest one. Again this was fine as our child stayed in this one while we stayed in the adjoining one, but it may be an issue with groups of people.
The shower was good - nice amount of water pressure and instant heat.
Kitchen was functional, although we never cooked there. Bare minimum of equipment and plates etc, which may be a bit of an issue if you're wanting to cook for a full house. Then again, why would you with so many lovely restaurants all around.
All in all we were very happy with the apartment, and for the price I don't think we could have found anywhere even half as nice. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
Riesige Wohnung in der man mit 8 Leuten bequem wohnen kann. Verkehrstechnisch sehr günstig in Kreuzberg gelegen. Bus 50m um die Ecke, U-Bahn 10 min Fußweg. Wir hatten ein tolles Wochenende in Berlin.
Beste Grüße an René
We loved the apartment. Good location with lots of bars and restaurants nearby and a handy bus. Rene was helpful.
The location of the apartment is fantastic, just out of the city with plenty of great bars, cafes and restaurants in the area. Size of the place was fantastic and even larger than the photos appear, was clean and tidy upon arrival and the host was incredibly friendly and helpful on our arrival. Couldn't recommend enough.
Great spacious apartment in a fantastic area of Berlin. We loved the location and the ample space. Thanks
Very comfortable. Nice place to spend your time in Berlin. Definitely recommended.
