BACK TO THE 70´s, special in Berlin

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Seestraße, Berlin, Berlin 13353, Germany

The Space

Back to the 70´s:
2 rooms - max. 5 people

Our apartment in Seestrasse 118 is reached from the airport Berlin-Tegel particularly well.

Because of its "historic" wallpaper, we have decided to devote it entirely to the style of the 70s. We are especially proud of the monumental wall poster with a contemporary engraving in Orange.

Our apartment in Seestrasse 118 is 60 m2 and has 1 double bed and a bunk bed with two Schlafmöglichkieten. In addition, the sofa pulled out to a very comfortable double bed. The apartment is divided into a very large living room, a small bedroom and a kitchen. There is a bathroom with shower. The apartment is very quiet in the second cross-building, 3rd OG located. In the apartment there is a monumental wall poster with a mountain motif from seawater, as well as various großmotivige wallpapers from the 70s.

In Berlin you find a very dense public transportation net. Many sights are directy and rapidly accessible. Because of the central location most guests leave their cars parked or do not even bring it along at all. The apartment lies at 400 m at U6-train station Seestrasse. Several underground lines, (night -) buses and a taxi are in the Seestresse.

From the airport Tegel you take the bus 128 (direction "Osloer Straße") up to the station "Kurt-Schumacher-Platz" and rise there into the U6 (direction "Alt-Mariendorf") and drive up to the station "Seestraße" (about 18 min.). From the airport Schönefeld you take the X7 (direction "Rudow") to the station "Rudow", change into the Underground U7 (direction "Rathaus Spandau") to the station "Mehrindamm". There take the underground U6 (direction "Alt-Tegel") and leave at the station "Seestraße" (about 55 min.).
From Hauptbahnhof (central station) you take the S-Bahn (direction "Friedrichstraße") and rise there into U6 (direction "Alt-Tegel") and drive up to the station "Seestraße". Alternatively you could take the bus 120 (direction "Hainbuchenstr.") up to underground station "Seestraße" (about 13 min.).

The history and sights of the neighborhood of Wedding:

In the 12th century, the manor of the nobleman Rudolf de Weddinge was located on the small Panke River in the immediate vicinity of today's Nettelbeckplatz. The farmstead, which burned down more than once, remained abandoned in the forest until the 18th century. In the mid-18th century, while Gesundbrunnen was being built up as a health resort and spa town, gambling and prostitution moved into Wedding, transforming it into a pleasure district. In 1864 Ernst Christian Friedrich Schering established the Schering pharmaceutical company on Müllerstraße. Nearby the room is the The Fachhochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (German, literally University of Applied Sciences for Engineering and Economy) or FHTW is the youngest and largest University of Applied Sciences in Berlin. It has almost 10,000 students studying in programs in the area of engineering, computer science, business and graphic arts. The Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin is the medical school for the Free University of Berlin and the Humboldt University of Berlin. In 2003, the Charité claimed to be the largest university hospital in Europe after the merger with their fourth campus. Many famous physicians and scientists worked for at least part of their careers at the Charité.

The constant migration of country-dwellers into the city at the end of the 19th century converted Wedding into a working-class district. The labourers lived in cramped tenement blocks. After World War I Wedding was known as "Red Wedding" as it was renowned for its militant, largely communist working class; it was the scene of violent protests on May 1, 1929. Because of the politics of the workers in Wedding, it was a target of attacks by the Nazi government in the 1930s.
More than other 19th century working class districts, the original character of Wedding has been preserved. It is said to be a place to find the Schnauze mit Herz (big mouth and big heart) of the working class. However, the spirit is not exclusively German. The multicultural atmosphere is visible in the bilingual shop signs (German and Turkish, or German and Arabic). The buildings of Wedding are relics of European post-war Modernism. Many are monolithic housing blocks. Some old buildings survived the war and urban renewal and still have coal fired heating. Wedding did not experience the boom and gentrification of the '90s in Berlin.

A green oases mark the west borders of the "old red" district. The idyllic Plötzensee lake in the Southwest. Plötzensee is a popular summer hang-out offering sandy beaches and long lawns.

  • Great place. Arrived by air and it was easy to get there by public transport. The closes U-bahn is just 5-10 minutes walk away. During the day there is a tram just outside the building if you don't want to walk. =)

    The apartment is equipped with washer and an iron which saved me after sloching my self with some pasta bolognese.

    Quiet, nice and clean place. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment is set in a very quiet building, away from the street and the result is that one can absolutely relax after a hard day doing whatever you are in Berlin for. The apartment itself is well equipped and full of light from the tree-filled quad.
    Maruska is friendly, helpful and everything you could expect for a host. Thank you!

  • Great and spacious apartment with unique atmosphere. Enjoyed my stay very much - and Maruska is a very nice and helpful host. Highly recomendable, I will surely come back.

  • Die Wohnung befindet sich im Hinterhaus. Dadurch bekommt man von der befahrenen Hauptstrasse, als Gast, nichts mit. Es ist sehr ruhig. Die Wohnung ist sehr bunt und kreativ eingerichtet, was einem jedes Mal beim Eintreten zum Schmunzeln bringt. Die Einrichtung ist sehr familienfreundlich. Als "Nichtfamilie" (wir waren vier Erwachsene, "Nichtpaare") ist die Wohnung, vor allem das Badezimmer, sehr eng.
    Saras Empfang war sehr herzlich und warm. Auch die kleine Verstärkung von Maruska hat uns positiv überrascht. Die zwei sind die perfekten Gastgeberinnen. Besten Dank an euch.

    Danke nochmal ...
