We will welcome you and hand-over the keys; in case we will be traveling, the cleaning lady will do the same.
If you have any questions,we are always available via telephone or email, and we get back to you in a matter of minutes!
The area is one of the most trendy neighborhoods in Berlin, with lots of shops, bars and nice restaurants, all reachable by foot; we can provide you with list of the best places to eat and/or have a drink, please just ask (or check the guidebook in our profile).
The area is very quite and green, with a few cars passing by; it's also very safe (thanks to the two police stations in the area). In front of the house there is a church famous for having been the place where the peaceful revolution started (don't worry, the bell rings only during the day ;)
Mauerpark, also known as („wallpark” because of the Wall which passed through it) is just 20 minutes away, there you can relax or visit the famous flee market on Sunday.
In the area you can find several shops and supermarkets:
- mini-market next to our place, on the left
- Supermarket, postoffice and several shops in the Schönhauser Arkaden mall (5 minutes from home, behind the church on the left)
- Kaiser's (supermarket), Pappelallee 45 (5 minutes walk, first street on the left taking a right when leaving home)
- Kiepert & Kutzner (organic supermarket), Schönhauser Allee 65 (10 minutes walk, second left taking a left when leaving home)
The apartment is 10-15 minutes from the center (Alexander Platz and the television tower, an ideal point to start exploring the city), reachable by subway (S-Bahn and U-Bahn Schönhauser Allee), tram, bus all 3 minutes away by foot.
Airports are conveniently reachable: Schönefeld is directly connected to the line S9 (S-Bahn) and Tegel by S41/42 + bus TXL. The main station (Hauptbahnhof) is connected to U2 to Alexander Platz + any S-Bahn going westward.
If you want to rent bikes, at the corner with Greifenhagener Straße (one minute walk when leaving the apartment on the left), you can find some for a decent price; just ask in the café Gina M.
Really, you couldn't find a place strategically better positioned in Berlin!
Other things to note
When booking please let us know your arrival and departure times, so that we can organize it accordingly.
Check-in is after 15:00 and check-out is before 12:00 (noon), but we are flexible according to the availability (if there is no other guest coming you can stay until the afternoon and arrive in the morning). So let us know before you arrive so that we can find a solution which is best for you!
Out of respect for others guests we don't allow smoking in the apartment (it's super convenient to smoke in the yard or in the front of the house). Please note that there is a smoke detector in each room of the apartment.
Small size pets are allowed, so please leave your Saint Bernard at home ;)
Also please don't download anything since it's illegal in Germany and this law gets enforced, this means we'll get a letter from a lawyer asking for damages (it already happened)!
We are a friendly couple who would be glad to rent our 90 sqm flat (about 960 sqft) to people traveling to Berlin :)
We are working for an internet startup and we would be more then happy to advise you about the best activities in the city and help you have a great time in one of the most vibrant capital cities in Europe.
