Where is it?
The apartment is located on a quiet street in the center of Berlin near the beautiful and lively "Bergmannkiez" in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The area surrounding the apartment is like an open-air museum, with old ("Altbau") restored buildings from the early 20th century, cobblestone streets and gas lanterns.
Right around the corner, there are numerous restaurants, cafes, bars, playgrounds, grocery stores (including the fantastic market hall with numerous local and international specialties). There is also a bakery right on the corner (open early every day). Every Saturday there is also a street market on Chamissoplatz (2 minute walk) selling organic fruits, vegetables, meat and other foods.
There are many playgrounds (the next one on Chamissoplatz with a water pump and fountain), two outdoor swimming pools and four nice parks within easy walking distance: Victoriapark with the Kreuzberg waterfall, Hasenheide, Park am Gleisdreieck, and Tempelhofer Feld (the old Tempelhof airport, now a public park). The latter offers not only a unique experience to walk on the old airplane runways, but also numerous options such as biking, rollerblading, kite flying etc as well as a beer garden and a collection of urban gardens growing a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs.
Public transportation is readily available, making it easy to reach anywhere in the city easily. The U-Bahn lines U7 (East-West) and U6 (North-South) are within 5-10 minutes walking distance and allow for easy connection to and from the airports and main railway stations. There is also a direct bus to Alexanderplatz a few minutes away.
Berlin is a pretty green city with many parks and lakes you can swim in. For a change of scenery, you can visit scenic Potsdam with Sanssouci within half an hour, Spreewald with its winding waterways within an hour, as well as many lakes - all by train.
