Description

The space

Perfect if you are coming to Berlin and want to be up front and center! The fully-equipped Riverfront Panorama is on the seventh floor of a riverfront property across from the Museum Island (Pergamon, Bode Museum) and is located close to the Friedrichstrasse station in Berlin Mitte. It is directly on the river Spree promenade (Schiffbauerdamm), spacious (100 square meters) and commands a stunning panoramic view of the entire city (Reichstag, Sony Center, Potsdamer Platz, Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, Pergamon Museum, City Hall and Television Tower).
Five minutes’ walk bring you to the Bode-Museum or to Monbijou and Oranienburgerstrasse with its international restaurants, a synagogue, the Old Post Office (modern art museum), the arts center and Hackescher Markt and the art gallery district of Berlin. For foodies the Torstrasse is a five minute walk and truly a paradise.
The Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, the exclusive shops of the upper Friedrichstrasse, Humboldt University and the Berlin Cathedral are also only a stone's throw away. The television tower of the "Alex" overlooks the scene.
The spacious living room has a surround system for listening to CDs, internet Radio or your own music from your smartphone or tablet computer. The second living room with the dining table ensures the place is spacious and not cramped. You can relax wonderfully after an active day in the city or work at the desk. Of course, the apartment provides broadband Internet and wireless WiFi. There is no television (the view out the windows is 100 times better than tv).
The kitchen is fully-equipped for you to make meals that you can enjoy in the spacious dining room area while enjoying the panorama view. The supermarket (Edeka) in the Friedrichstrasse train station is open until midnight and on Sundays. There is also a Rewe supermarket just outside the station with similar opening hours. The bathroom has a tub and hair dryer. You can also use the washing machine.
Sheets and towels are included.
The Riverfront Panorama apartment is in the middle of Berlin's theater district. You can see the famous Berliner Ensemble from the living room and the Friedrichstadtpalast from the bedroom. The revived Admiralpalast, Deutsches Theater, the Opera house and countless other stages are just a stone's throw away.
Parking: There is some limited free parking in the neighbourhood and there are several parking garages within a few minutes' walk that offer special rates.
Minimum stay: 3 days
The Riverfront Panorama is a non-smoking apartment.
In a nutshell a review I received describes exactly why I love sharing my apartment:
"It's clear from the apartment contents that you're a traveller too and have many similar interests to us which created the lovely feeling that we were borrowing a friend's apartment for the week. Knocks the spots off a week in some faceless hotel! Thanks again for all your help, and all the very best for a healthy, happy and successful new year."

Guest access

You have full access to the facilities the spacious apartment provides.

Interaction with guests

If I am not in Berlin I am easily accessible by mobile phone and email.

The neighborhood

I love the fact that you can enjoy the beauty of the river (6 bridges) from home. There isn't much you can't find within 5 minutes' walk: First class museums, Berlin's incredibly creative cuisine (foodies will be in heaven), great pubs and cafes, galleries, theaters - everything from classic to underground.

Getting around

You have your choice of subway, tram, bus, boat, taxi - all within a minute's walk. Plus, this is one of the nicest parts of Berlin to explore on foot!

Other things to note

A favorite review I received that describes exactly why I use airbnb: "It's clear from the apartment contents that you're a traveller too and have many similar interests to us which created the lovely feeling that we were borrowing a friend's apartment for the week.

House Rules

Most important "rule" is enjoy yourself and make yourself at home. Most things are self explanatory. I will make all arrangements on an individual basis for picking up and dropping off the keys.

“Creating a World without Poverty” – Muhammad Yunus and I share a vision of placing poverty into a museum in our lifetimes – so we don’t forget what it was. Many years ago I began dedicating myself to issues surrounding poverty and the environment after an extended trip through Asia and Africa in 2000. I began to wonder – what if you could harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, inequality?
My personal journey has taken me to many places on this planet in many capacities. As a young student growing up in the United States during the height of the cold war, I could not phantom why people on the other side of the world would want to kill me. Conflict and conflict management in international affairs became an underlying theme in everything I did. I visited the Soviet Union to dispel the myth. Later I became a professor of transition theory at the University in Kiev, Ukraine, worked in the State Department of the United States, launched an internet company, established a foundation and consulted international organizations such as the OSCE and the Council of Europe. I discovered there are many ways to tackle conflict. But where could I have the most impact?
Now, I am focusing my efforts nearly 100% on Social Business as a Social Entrepreneur – a pioneering model for nothing less than a new, humane form of capitalism. I understood that conflict prevention starts with reducing poverty. I have always liked the motto “Doing well by doing good” and am motivated by triple bottom line metrics – people planet profit.
