Located in Prenzlauer Berg, surrounded by great dining and original shopping, this magnificent turn-of-the-century flat is the perfect place to discover Berlin from on foot, by bike or public transportation or to simply spend an day on the balcony.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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.

Interaction with Guests

We are happy to provide you with information about the place and the area in advance. While you are here, you will have our apartment all by yourselves, but our next door neighbors are available for your needs and questions.

The Neighborhood

Located in the Eastern part of the city, our neighborhood has been among Berlin's most popular over the past 15 years. The streets are bustling with with people, there are plenty of bars, restaurants and little shops. Mauerpark with its flee market, open air karaoke, and street artists is just a 10-minutes walk away and Berlins most popular Sunday destination.

There are bakeries and plenty of inexpensive little restaurants across the street as well as supermarkets and specialty stores.

Getting around

It's a great and easy place to discover Berlin from with many downtown places within walking distance and the subway station a mere block away. The U2 subway will take you to all the major downtown destinations such as Alexanderplatz, Mitte district with Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and Zoologischer Garten. The popular Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt areas are within 20 minutes walking distance or easy to reach by streetcar. Several places around offer bike rental.

The airports can be reached by public transportation within 35 minutes (Tegel) and an hour (Schönefeld) at a cost of around 3€. You must change busses / trains once in order to get here.

Parking is possible at 7€ per day in a garage around the corner.

Other Things to Note

While check-in time is generally flexible, check-in does need some advance co-ordination as we need for someone to be there for you when you get here.

If we have guests before or after you, we will need time for cleaning which means you might have to leave in the morning around 10/11 or might not be able to arrive before the afternoon around 4.

  • We had a wonderful time in Berlin - loved the city and loved the flat! Daniel and Dietmar left the apartment beautifully clean and gave comprehensive instructions for all appliances as well as a list of restaurant and bar suggestions. They made some great recommendations for things to do, including the Berlin Culture Festival which was awesome! Their flat is very spacious and in a great part of town. We would love to come and visit again sometime, we miss the flat, the curry wurst and Berlin in general!! Thank you for having us, guys!

  • Very nice, large, clean and bright apartment in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg. Perfect for a family with two children. Daniel and Dietmar helped us with a lot of information and help with parking license for our car. We can highly recommend the apartment.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Berlin, this town is amazing, and the choice of prenzlauerberg is a good choice because it's very interesting to leave east side. Daniel and Dietmar's flat is gorgeous, i loved the vintage décoration! Also, they provide us a lot of informations and such a warm welcome. It was a very nice stay in a very nice apartment with very nice hosts, I highly recommend!!!

  • Daniel and Dietmar have an amazing home and luckily they share their place with people!

    Next time I am in Berlin I contact them in advance to know their plans because I wish I could spent another happy holiday at their place.

    It was easy to communicate with guys from the very beginning! Daniel and Dietmar polite and cheerful and open people! The flat has its feeling and this is most important since my family and I we all feel at home. No need to say that the flat looks exactly the same as on the pics: it is bright, spacious, clean with the beautiful balcony and the view to the roofs and trees, and you can find whatever you need there.

    The area is perfect - quiet, well connected to the center, there are many places around to eat or drink.

    Just excellent!

  • Excellent apartment in an fun, restaurant-filled area of Berlin. Dietmar and Daniel left an organized guide to the offerings, and then made some personalized recommendations. U-Bahn station and tram lines are within easy reach, and so is the rest of Berlin.

    Once you're through with all of that, the apartment is a comfortable, stylish place to put your feet up and relax.

  • My first experience on Airbnb had just been amazing : friendly Dietmar welcomed my friends and I, and we had great times in the super flat (huge, clean,cozy, with great location).
    And the magic book Daniel and Dietmar left for guests is a treasure of advice !
    Thanks again guys.

About
My partner and I moved to Berlin in 1999. We both studied Political Sciences at the University of Potsdam and now work in downtown Berlin for a state government and a local cinema operator. We bought our apartment in 2009 when it was beautifully renovated. We love music (singer-songwriter, bluegrass, electronic), dinner with friends in our georgous kitchen or in one of the many little restaurant around, and travelling. Since we are gone frequently, we are renting out our place to anyone interested in discovering Berlin from the perspective of a private visitor while we travel to our favorite cities like Stockholm, New York, Madrid or take roadtrips through the US or other countries.
