A nice flat with good karma, lots of useful services included. Located in Prenzlauer Berg - in a great surrounding with lots of cafés and restaurants.
Welcome! When I am away, you can rent my home. The apartment consists of one large room of 40 square meters and a huge balcony with 8 square meters. As the front windows are facing south, it is bright and sunny. From inside, you are looking into a green courtyard with a nice tree. The location is very quiet.
The flat is fully furnished in a simple and cosy style. The furniture is nice, not always new, and sometimes even a bit improvised. The bathroom comes with a shower.
There is a king-size bed (80x70 inches), and, if required, I can set up a small, foldable extra bed (70x30 inches). Have a look at the photos.
You can use the kitchen and everything you find. There is internet (via LAN and WiFi) and a telephone with your own number. With the telephone you can make cheap VoIP calls to fixed line phones all over the world. Because I am a bit environmentalist, there's organic spices in the kitchen and a eco-cleaner. You will find the flat clean, but not aseptic :-) A new washing machine, an iron and an ironing board are at your disposal.
The use of the two bicycles is free (see the photos). I can adjust the height of the saddle(s) for you!
I will provide linnen, towels, shampoo and more, if you need it. If you want to fly to Berlin only with hand luggage: Tell me if I can prepare more things for you. This could include a hairdryer, an umbrella, toothbrushes, toothpasta, shaving stuff, washcloths, first-day food, espresso, coffee and tea, maybe some T-Shirts in M and L, and other stuff you need.
If you want to enjoy the sunny balcony, a quiet stay, the nice surrounding and city cycling, then go ahead! The time of arrival and departure is to be agreed - let me know as early as possible. Please, contact me if you have questions.

Interaction with Guests
Before you arrive, I will communicate with you to make your stay as comfortable as possible for you. When you are here, it is your space, of course.
The famous Prenzlauer Berg is a great surrounding with a lot of cafés, restaurants, bars and shops. Enjoy it!
For my guidebook with important places near the apartment see the map below.
The apartment is located between the S- and U-Bahn-stations of Schönhauser Allee (S 41, S 42, U2), Eberswalder Straße (U2) and Prenzlauer Allee (S 41, S 42). From there, it takes you five minutes, from the tram stations Husemannstraße (M10), Fröbelstraße (M2) and Raumer Straße (M12) even only three.
Feel free to do and to use everything that makes you enjoy your stay! Smoking only on the balcony, please. Last but not least: Please be friendly and act responsibly towards my neighbors, who I like and who like me.
I really can't say enough good things about Christian. In addition to being a solid dude, his communication was quick and helpful, and he was very attentive and sensitive to our needs.
The flat is as exactly as it looks in the photos, so there were no surprises what so ever, not to mention it being very clean and tidy.
I would happily stay at Christian's again if I found myself in Berlin.
We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf in het appartement van Christian. De beschrijving van het appartement klopt helemaal: een heerlijk rustige plek in het hart van Prenzlauer Berg, een superhippe wijk in Berlijn. Met de fietsen van Christian hebben we Berlijn ontdekt: een groot feest. Christian was zeer royaal met de uitcheck tijd waardoor we een onbekommerde laatste dag hadden en om vier uur naar het vliegveld konden gaan. Als we weer naar Berlijn gaan, komen we hier zeker terug.
Trevlig enrummare i härliga Prenzlauer berg. Stor skön säng med möjlighet till en extrasäng. Rejäl balkong som vi dock inte hade möjlighet att utnyttja på ett bättre sätt i det gråa decembervädret.
Nära till massor av restauranger och butiker som har vad man behöver.
Vi träffade aldrig Christian personligen men överlämning av nycklarna ordnades på ett annat smidigt sätt efter kontakt via sms. När vi åkte droppade vi dem bara på anvisad plats. Överhuvudtaget var Christian trevlig och tillmötesgående när vi undrade något.
Christian was welcoming and helpful when we arrived, and made himself available for any queries we may have had about the apartment or the area/city.
The apartment is a great space; clean and light and matching the description on the listing. The apartment is quiet and tucked away from the street, and you will have a lovely stay here.
Additionally, the area around the apartment is very interesting, with nice bars and restaurants to explore.
Would highly recommend the apartment and Christian and a host.
Christian provided a lovely experience for us. Even though we arrived quite early in the morning, he was still there to greet us personally and answer all our questions. We really felt at home right away.
The apartment is just as it looks, beautiful, light, airy, and perfectly functional. Kitchen and bathroom had all that we needed for our stay. The view is so nice from the apartment, and the neighborhood is great! Tons of cafés, bars, boutique shops and very close to the public transportation system, both S and U bahn and the tram. The apartment is uniquely quiet and peaceful yet right in the heart of a very cool neighborhood. We would totally recommend staying here.
Oh, and also worth mentioning, Christian was extremely punctual in answering all correspondence. I received emails quickly and full of great tips and advice!
Great AirBNB experience!!!
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in Christians geräumiger, heller und sehr ruhiger Wohnung. Es war alles vorhanden, was man braucht und die Lage der Wohnung am Prenzlauer Berg ist interessant und schön. Jede Menge Kneipen, Restaurants, Cafés, Läden, grüne Plätze und schöne Altbauten rundherum. Ein sehr schöner, interessanter Stadtteil von Berlin. Es lohnt sich ihn kennenzulernen. Die Fahrräder sind ein zusätzliches Plus, allerdings nur für sportliche Fahrer geeignet, da beides Herrenräder sind und nur in "Rennradhaltung" benutzbar. Wir hatten aber viel Spaß, damit in Berlin herumzukurven und haben so manchen Autofahrer im Stau hinter uns gelassen. Die Kommunikation mit Christian war sehr nett und hilfreich. Alles hat super geklappt.
Christian went well out of his way to ensure that my transition into his space went smoothly and it is a GORGEOUS space. exactly like the picture, wonderfully bright and open. He was very accommodating about some changes to my schedule and generally a very nice person to interact with. The neighbourhood is great and the bar on the corner ended up informally hosting the after-party for my conference because it was so cozy there. I would definitely stay here again.
I like airbnb because I love both travelling and staying in interesting and cosy places. Being a Berlin-based historian, I travel for professional purposes and for private fun. I love amazing new surroundings that give us new energy and that allow us to broaden our mind.
When travelling, I enjoy being in contact with open-minded people who are awake and curious. Sustainable lifestyles, yoga and organic food are some of the things that I am interested in.
As a host, I will do my best to provide you a perfect stay in Berlin - first of all, with quick, easy and reliable communication. I will organize things and services you need. Ask me!
