“Our month-long exchange with Antje and Christoph Geusen in Berlin was excellent. Their spacious apartment is located in a lovely part of Prenzlauer Berg, one of Berlin’s culturally most culturally residential neighborhoods. Antje and Christoph are considerate and reliable people who communicate clearly. They also went out of their way to help us feel comfortable. For example, knowing that we’d occasionally be caring for our 2-year granddaughter (who lives in Berlin) in their apartment, they brought up from their storage area a dollhouse, other toys, and a high chair. We really appreciated this thoughtfulness. Antje and Christoph took good care with the use of our car and everything in our house. They left our home in very clean condition (as we did theirs). We are happy to recommend Antje and Christoph for any exchange you may wish to arrange.”

“Anyone lucky enough to have a home exchange with Antje and Christoph will not want to leave. Staying in their quiet and spacious apartment in the middle of a bristling district of Berlin was quite an experience; we visited for 10 days in July 2019. The kitchen is modern and easy to use. Antje, being a professional musician, has an exciting cd-collection. We loved Prenzlauer Berg both for its ideal location and atmosphere: you only have to walk a few minutes to find lots of shops and restaurants, often with outdoor seating. All the same, you're not in a touristy part of Berlin: this is simply local street life. Connections to the city center, with the museums, the Reichstag, etc. are easy by bus, tram or underground. We used the three bicycles a lot: Berlin is well adapted to bikes, with separate lanes and the like. Great way to explore a city. We also spent a few days in the summer house in Klaushagen, which was a nice retreat from the city, with lovely lakes for swimming and canoeing. Finally, Antje and Christoph were very easy to communicate with, and helpful in providing information on Berlin and their house.”
“We had a wonderful 10 days staying in Antje & Christoph’s apartment. The apartment is in a great location, very well connected to both tram & U-Bahn stations. The apartment is bright, spacious & very welcoming. Antje & Christoph were very supportive exchange partners, we enjoyed great communications both prior & during our stay in Berlin. We can highly recommend exchanging with them. ”
“We had a 3 weeks house (and Car) swap with Antje and Christoph Geusen in Berlin which was absolutely great! Their Berlin apartment is located in a Quiet, charming area, with many parks, suitable for young families, many restaurants, and an overall sensation of an area dazzling with all kinds of cultural activities. The apartment was spacious and airy, giving to 3 directions, with a well-equipped kitchen, with lovely ceramic pieces - we had great fun cooking & having breakfasts on the balcony. Their cat, Joschi, is adorable. When it became really hot in Berlin, we profited of their summer house, situated in a natural reservation, north of Berlin, surrounded by crystal clear lakes, enjoying the rural environment and change of pace. Antje & Christoph were very friendly, considerate, communicative and supportive –we were very satisfied with them and recommend warmly a home exchange with them. ”
Where is it?
Our apartment is located in the heart of the famous and popular district of Prenzlauer Berg in the former east part of Berlin. There are countless nice small shops, a farmers market, restaurants and cafes, but also parks are in walking distance as well sauna and gym. The district is very central in the middle of Berlin and very close to shopping districts and train stations, but also very quiet, safe and peaceful. Many families live there and enjoy having everything in walking distance.
Most of the museums, galleries and concert halls (e.g. Berlin Philharmonics) in Berlin Mitte can be reached with bike or easily with public transport. The next tram station is just 2 min to walk which brings you to Berlin Alexanderplatz in 5 min and from there to everywhere.
