About our home

We live in a two-storey maisonette rooftop flat in a typical 1906 period apartment building in a quiet side street of Kastanienallee bang in the vibrant centre of Berlin.

We have a small flat on the 4th and 5th floor (60 sqm) that can be reached with an elevator.

The flat has 1 master bedroom, a bathroom with bathtub and an office on the downstairs floor, and an open space living room and kitchen, separate WC and balcony with view to the TV tower on the upstairs floor.

We offer 1 large double bed, a kids bed and sofa bed in the living room (could sleep 2 + 1 and 1 child).

We do have the following ammenities:
* cleaner available
* fast DSL connection
* centralised heater and water supply
* telephone - no TV though!
* toys and children books
* Deutsche Bahn rental bike station just around the corner

The flat is easy to reach from both airports TXL and SXF and has public transport (tube and tram right around the corner) - easy parking just in front of the house

If the balcony is not enough, we have a lovely little public park nearby and are also a short walk away from Friedrichshain park and Mauerpark.


More about us

  1. We are a young professional couple, both German (in our fourties) and little daughter (Helene, 5 years).

    Ludwig works as a UX consultant and Heike as a freelance Product Management Consultant. We both enjoy all things digital. Heike loves (Bikram) yoga and running and Ludwig is a big fan of Crete and its culture.

    We can be quite flexible with dates, depending on our work commitments.

    No smoking, sorry, except on the balcony!

    We speak German, English and French.

    We are new to home swapping but are looking forward to it! - We would like to show our little daughter the world and we believe homeswaps is a great way to do so.

Where is it?


The flat is located in a quiet side street of Kastanienallee bang in the vibrant centre of Berlin, a lot of cafes and restaurants are just outside. A supermaket (Lidl) and bakery (Lila Bäcker) are just next door, as are small late night off licence shops (the "Spätis") and an organic shop.

The flat is officially situated in Mitte, but it is literally on the border to Prenzlauer Berg, well-connected by tram and tube to the rest of the city.

The cultural centre "Kulturfabrik" and the lovely Kollwitzstrasse Saturday street market as well as the Mauerpark flea market are just a 5 min. walk away.
