The Berlin Artist Apartment is situated in a pre-war apartment building in the heart Berlin's Friedrichshain district, east of Alexanderplatz. It is perhaps the last resort for Berlin's famous alternative subculture. The streets culture is colourful and vibrant: Left over artist squats merge with imposing monumental Stalin-era buildings. Late-nineteenth century apartment buildings, galleries, alternative bars, clubs and cafes permeate the streets. Simon Dach Strasse is a popular spot with students, artists, young families as well as young Berliners.
The front of the apartment building has a liquor and convenience shop, a fantastic bakery, café and icecream shop. Nearby Boxhagener platz hosts the fantastic farmers market on Saturday, and the famous flea market on the Sunday. There are a range of supermarkets nearby.
Many more cultural, sporting and shopping options are also within walking or cycling distance. A walk away is the “East Side Gallery", the largest remaining section of the wall, saved by artists who've turned it into a canvas for their work. There is also the 02 stadium, just a walk away, as well as berlin's most famous clubs.
By far the best way to experience Berlin is by bike (there is a bike rental at the front of the building) however the apartment is a walk away for all types of transport. The underground station (U-bahn – U5) and overground station (S-bahn S9. S41, S42, ) are a five minute walk from the apartment. The apartment has a direct trainline to schonefeld airport. Alexanderplatz is about five minutes by train or a 10 minute bike ride. Nearby public transport connections mean that favourites such as Berlin's TV tower, shopping in Hackescher Markt or the Reichstag and Brandenburg gate are 15 minutes away.
