About our home

Our 4-room-apartment is situated at the 6th floor - don't worry, there is a lift ;-) - of a newly built (2011) house located in Berlin-Kreuzberg. It has about 110 m2 of living space inside. In summer, the highlight is a big roof terrace (more than 50 m2, direction South-West, parts of it with lawn) with a great view over the roofs of Berlin, and a smaller terrace (about 10 m², dir. East) where you look into the green yard. The flat has a big living room with an open kitchen, a bed room with a double bed and an office/guest room with another double bed. In the children's room, there's a bunk bed (200 cm long) and an additional mattress. We have a bathroom with tub and shower and an additional WC. With its big windows in nearly every room, the flat is very bright and sunny.

As our house is owned be a cooperative, we have lots of nice neighbours who will gladly help you when you have any questions or problems during your holiday.

More about us

  1. We are a couple in our forties (web developer and political scientist) with 5 year old twins Naomi and Lior. We love travelling, and as this is not so easy anymore with small kids, we were looking for alternative ways of travelling that go with our „new needs“.
    Since 2011 we have made 7 exchanges to Haifa, Copenhagen, Jutland, Amsterdam, Annecy, Galway and Tel Aviv. All of them were really great.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Kreuzberg is a very multicultural and lively district at the Center of Berlin, only some metro or bus stations away from the most known touristical „hotspots“ such as Brandenburger Tor, Reichstag, Alexanderplatz/TV-Tower, Kurfürstendamm, Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz and so on.

Situated at the former inner German border, up to 1989 Kreuzberg was a very quiet district „at the end of nowhere“. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Kreuzberg found itself at the middle of the (then) capital and changed a lot.

In the last few years, Kreuzberg was getting more and more „hip“ and sought after, so the area becomes more and more interesting for tourists and, first of all, the rents raised a lot. Despite the ongoing process of gentrification Kreuzberg is still an alternative district.

Especially in the summer, there are lots of things to do: You'll find different parks in our area, there's a lot of water (the river Spree, Landwehr Canal) where you can make nice boat tours or rent canoes, you can go swimming in one of Berlin's lakes - there are quite a few -, sit in nice cafés, restaurants and beer gardens, make a nice trip to the country side or watch films in open air cinemas.

Some interesting this things to see and to do nearby:

- East/West (Oberbaumbrücke, East Side Gallery)
- water (Spree, Kanal) and parks
- lot's of restaurants, snack bars, cafés, bars, clubs, some off-cinemas and -theatres
- stylish fashion shops, organic food store, turkish grocery shops...
- the amazing Jewish Museum
- at the Landwehr Canal, at the border to the next district, there are different markets worth visiting, especially the big oriental market on Tuesdays and Fridays (and the flee market at the weekend)
