About our home

Our home is a brand new renovated apartment in the heart of Kreuzberg. The stucco from 1890 in living room, dining room and bedroom has been restored with a lot of love and has been kept in the original greenish color. All rooms except for bathroom and kitchen still have the original wooden flooring. The kitchen has a wooden-like flooring and the bathroom a black tile floor. The ceilings in our apartment are about 3,9m high and the windows in the rooms to the front (means living room, dining room and bedroom) still have the original double glass whereas the rooms to the back have new windows. The furniture in our apartment is choosen with a lot of love and is kept in a classic style to fit the rest of the apartment. We have central heating with gas and on on top of that an amazing old fireplace in the living room which is heated with coals. We also have a landline phone, high speed internet, HiFi that can be easily connected to your computer and a flat screen TV which receives German channels. Our kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. We have a stove with gas (as cooking with gas is so much better) and an oven with electricity, a dishwasher, fridge, microwave and all the crockery you need. Our bathroom has no seperate shower, but you can also shower in the bathtub that is no problem at all. As you can see on the pictures we actually just have one bedroom, but as you can extend our big sofa in the living room to a double bed there is space for 4 people to sleep, means couples with two kids for example could sleep in the living room and the kids together in the bedroom. The apartment is strictly non-smoking, but it is no problem to enjoy a cigarette on our amazing balcony with view on a nice market place with a church in the centre.


More about us

  1. We are a friendly and tolerant couple, that loves to travel around. I am a doctor, originally grown up in the eastern part of Germany and my boyfriend is a painter from Scotland. We are living in Berlin for 3 years now, but just 4 months ago we moved into this beautiful apartment together. Because our apartment means so much to us as we put so much effort into decorating this place, we would respect and take very much care of your place as well. We are very much down to earth and are looking forward to an apartment swap with another nice person/couple/family.

Where is it?


In our opinion Kreuzberg is the greatest part of Berlin to live in. We are perfectly situated in Kreuzberg 36, just 2 u-bahn stops away from Friedrichshain and 15 min away from Alexanderplatz. Our area is on one hand very quiet and child-friendly with a playground in the front. A lot of families are meeting at the ice-cream cafe in front of our house and many organic stores opened in the area. But on the other hand our area is the best spot to start your nights out. There are tons of little bars and restaurants around the corner and lots of hidden little clubs. By public transport you are just 15-20min away from all the important tourist attractions like TV-Tower, Brandenburger Tor, Checkpoint Charly, Museum Island, Eastside Gallery and so on. Kreuzberg is an exciting and vibrant place to live in, that almost changes every day.
