Located in the hip district of Prenzlauer Berg, our large home is a beautiful turn-of-the-century building with a gorgous view of the Kulturbrauerei complex across the street, a historic brewery building that hosts cinemas, clubs, theatres and a grocery store.
The interior is a mix of old and modern. We have a large kitchen that you are free to use including lots of equipment, a large living area and a balcony where you can enjoy your meals with a few of the bustling city life below.
This is our own apartment which we rent out while on vacations, so we are sure you will feel right at home and enjoy the amenities, books, music that come with a fully equipped place. Have breakfast on the balcony, enjoy your coffee on the window board overlooking the street or feel free to cook dinner.
