To mention them all would result in a small guidebook of Berlin!
The district of Mitte is definitely the district with the most tourist attractions in the whole city. The list of sights and historical buildings and squares, is endless. The Brandenburg Gate, a landmark both before and after reunification, is the most famous monument in Berlin. From here the magnificent boulevard Unter den Linden runs almost all the way to Alexanderplatz with its Television Tower and World Time Clock. On the way you will be passing the Humboldt University, the oldest university in Berlin, Staatsopera (the Operahouse), Museumsinsel (the Museum Island) and the site of the future Stadtschloss (town castle).
The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a World Heritage site. It is a treasure-trove of famous museums. Friedrichstrasse is today a commercial shopping boulevard with noble and grand shopping stores like Galerie Lafayette, Quartier Latin and various international couture boutiques. The street leads to Checkpoint Charlie, the main gateway for the Allied forces, non-Germans and diplomats before the wall came down - and then leads on further to Oranienburger Strasse.
The former Jewish quarter is nearby and is a very popular district for going out and very famous for its nightlife and hip young crowd. Nearby you will find the Neue Synagoge and the Hackesche Höfe. Gendarmenmarkt, which is said to be one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, is also not far away. Here you will find buildings like the Schauspielhaus as well as the German and French Cathedrals.
Berlin has an extensive network of public transport. Because of the very central location of the apartment, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked, or don't even bring them at all. Many of the tourist attractions are accessible by foot. Furthermore, the apartment has optimal public transport connections as it is located near the underground/urban train station Spitztelmarkt.
As stated above, major attractions like the Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmarkt and the famous boulevard Unter den Linden are reachable on foot.

This apartment is bright, clean, quiet, and conveniently located within Berlin. It is literally around the corner from the Spittlemarkt stop on the U2 line. Finding it and getting the keys was the easiest process of any place I have rented on Airbnb. I would gladly stay at this same apartment next time I am in Berlin, or if it is not available, rent one of Martin's many other properties.
Studio agréable, fonctionnel, propre, calme, bien situé par rapport au métro. Bon accueil et bonne communication pour la remise des clés. Des chaines d'information TV en anglais seraient appréciables... Adresse à recommander Michel
We had a great time in Berlin. This ended up being a great location. Big, clean and quiet at night. Great little coffee/bakery across the street for a cheap breakfast. Walking distance to check point Charlie, museum island, Brandenburg gate, and downtown shopping. Metro station right around the corner from the apartment. Communication was easy and accurate. Loved that there was free laundry facilities in-house. Overall, a great stay!
My parents had a wonderful stay at Martin's apartment, and the he is very professional and quick with communication. Upon arrival, they met Juergen and got the keys without problems. The location is very convenient. It's just a two-minute walk to the U-train that will takes you to all the interesting sight-seeing sites in Mitte. The apartment is located in a very quiet street, and looks as pictured, very clean and well maintained. The bed is very comfortable and the bedding and towels are spotless. Will definitely stay again if we come back to Berlin! Thanks!
Clean and good location. Only the cleaning fee is a bit steep, especially for short stays.
Great apartment!!)) location is in centre,very convenient for tourists. Subway is near. Near the apartment three cafes for breakfast) the apartment is new, very clean! Everything you need is their! I advice this apartment to everyone
This was my first airbnb experience and I am hooked! I stayed in Martin's wonderful apartment for five days and found it to be everything as described - immaculately clean, comfortable, all mod cons and a two minute walk from the U Bahn station. The area itself was quiet but only two stops on the train to the city centre.
Before the visit Martin answered all queries and provided relevant information very promptly. Many thanks also to Juergen for the early initial meet and for ensuring I got a taxi to the airport on my departure. Nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this apartment.

First of all, the most important thing :-)
Normally you will get an answer for every inquiry within the same day!
For whom is my service intended?
For everyone! My guests are very mixed – the businessman from New York feels as comfortable here as the young family from a small town. I welcome the culturally interested, those who come here to Berlin events like the Berlinale or Fashion Week, music lovers and clubbers, and those who just want a relaxing holiday. Everyone is welcome, from singles to extended families.
What’s my aim?
To offer friendly, comprehensive and straightforward service at moderate prices – no ifs and buts!
Who am I?
The idea of an unconventional apartment service was born in the sunny April of 2003 over a glass of wine, cheese and a baguette. The accommodation service was set up, and what was initially a bit of fun and a second job quickly grew into a profession and a passion. Add two staff members, three temporary assistants and a trainee – and you get an ambitious crew that aims to grow even further!
Where am I located?
The firm’s office is located in the legendary suburb of Prenzlauer Berg, a central location in the former east of the city. The ‘wild’ years that followed the fall of the Wall are past, but life here is still lively and upbeat. The apartments and rooms are in central locations of Berlin, especially in the West in a central location close to Kurfürstendamm (Nollendorfplatz), and also in the Eastern centre like Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt.
