About our home

This is our home in Friedenau, Berlin. It is situated in a white house built in the late 19th Century. We offer 4 bedrooms in a spacious flat that has two floors. On the upper floor, where you enter the flat, there is a large open living room, the dining room and the kitchen, where you can eat as well. You can enter the huge balcony from every of these three rooms. On colder evenings, one can use the fireplace (closed with a glass door), TV (+DVD, blueray and Wii) or play the electric piano. We also have dvds in English.
Also there is a small bathroom and the two children's rooms - 2014 freshly renovated into "Teens' rooms"! One with another balcony, the other with a table soccer and a dart board. They are quite big. We do have a guest matress, if you need to sleep more than 1 person in these rooms.
When you go down the stairs, there is the master bedroom, a guest room with a second TV and an indoor bicycle, a large bathroom with tub and a seperate shower. Also there is a storage room with a freezer and garden equipment. This part of the apartment is in the basement of the house, but all rooms have big windows.
All floors have parquet flooring (except kitchen and bathrooms).
We also own a part of the garden, which is sunny to sit in.

More about us

  1. We are a family of four.. My husband is a professor for Sociology at the University, our daughter was born 1998 and our son was born 2001. I am a bookseller working in a children's bookstore in Schoeneberg.

    We do some sports and like travelling, arts and music. When we visited the US for some months in 2010 we lived in a private home, not a hotel and liked it very much!

    We have experienced 2 very nice house exchanges with Cannes and Edinburgh in 2014.

    My husband and my son are highly allergic against pet hairs, so we can't exchange with a family who keeps dogs or cats, I'm afraid.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Friedenau is a charming part of Schoeneberg. Our street is quiet and has a lot of trees and old houses. Two streets away (5 minutes walking distance) is Berlin's second largest shopping street with lots of malls, cinemas and cafes.
The underground station (U9), the S-Bahn-station (S1) and busstops are nearby, so you can reach for example the Zoo in 10 minutes, the Brandenburg Gate in 20 minutes and the Philharmony in 20 minutes by public transport.
We have a variety of supermarkets (also bio) nearby.
For excursions to the Grunewald or the local swimming pool you can use our 6 bycicles (1 is older children size). Summer in Berlin is beautiful! In wintertime there are great "Christmas markets", Theatres and shopping nearby.
