About our home

Large, quiet 4-room apartment with a lot of light, 85 sq. metres. You can use 1 bedroom with a double waterbed (width 2.00 m) as well as one bed-couch for 2 persons in our study. Besides, there is a living-room with armchairs and a dinner table and our son's room - currently including a baby bed.

Wie are on the second floor of a house built in 2011/12, Master bedroom, living-room and balcony face West and look onto the huge common garden shared with 10 other houses. The garden is equipped with playgrounds, sandboxes, benches, deckchairs, table tennis and boule places. In our house there's a lift large enough for buggies etc.

The kitchen is very functional and is equipped with a fridge, dishwasher, induction stove and a sufficient supply of cooking utensils. The kitchen counter seats 2 people.

High speed internet access (bring your computer, we give you the WLAN key), German satellite TV (+BBC World), CD players, Wii available.

Bicycles (+ helmets, if needed) can be made available, including hints for cycling in and around Berlin.

Large collections of board- and cardgames, music and books which you are welcome to use.

We are open for short-time visitors while we're there - you'd stay in our study with a very comfy bedcouch and use the common rooms (living room, kitchen, bathroom) together with us.

Kreuzberg is the old "alternative" city quarter of West-Berlin. The apartment is close to the center of "Kreuzberg 61", the Bergmannstraße, with a lot of nice pubs, restaurants and interesting shops.

The underground station "Platz der Luftbrücke" (U6) is 10 minutes away by foot, a bus stops in front of our house.

Potsdamer Platz is about 30 mins by foot and 15 mins by bike, the same is valid for the historic city center in Mitte with the Berlin wall and Brandenburg gate. Buses and the underground also take you there easily.

The "gay quarter" Schoeneberg is close, as is Friedrichshain, where currently the hippest clubs are.

We are a lesbian couple in our late thirties/early fourties, academics, non-smokers. Our son was born in late 2012 and travels with us.

Andrea works as a desk officer in the federal environment ministry and has a small publishing company for boardgames. Karin is a psychologist.

We have been living in Berlin for 10+ years and know the city very well. A lot of our (English-speaking) friends live nearby and might be interested in showing you around. Besides, we can give you a lot of hints on what to see and where to go.

We already concluded eight simultaneous and one non-simultaneous exchanges and also regularly host couchsurfers. We are open to your suggestions.
