About our home

This is a top floor apartment with large balcony and beautiful view of Kreuzberg. There is a queen sized bed in the bedroom and the couch folds out to a double bed. Two minutes away from a major U-Bahn line, centrally located in the best neighborhood in Berlin. Local bars, cafes, parks and grocery stores are within a five minute walk. There is no elevator, just six flights of stairs! The climb to the top is worth it, though.

More about us

  1. We (Kate and Heather) are two American teachers who live and work in Berlin. We are both professionals and enjoy traveling on our breaks! We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see ours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Berlin. We look forward to taking good care of your house, as we hope you would take care of ours.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

I live in the Bergmannstraße neighborhood. The actual street is one block away from my apartment. Bergmannstraße in Kreuzberg is one of the most colourful streets of Berlin. The small shops interspersed with cafés and restaurants offer an insider’s tip of one kind or another.
Alongside long-established rummage and second-hand shops, unique boutiques have opened up – stylish hats at Coy art to wear - Hutkunst aus Berlin (Berlin Hat Art), and the bag to match at BagAge.Highly typical for Berlin is the Markthalle (Market Hall) am Marheinekeplatz, built in 1862 and steeped in tradition, which today offers fresh regional organic products.
Lovers of mystery and crime novels need look no further than the Hammett Bookstore, where thrillers ranging from Agatha Christie through to Stieg Larsson await their bloodthirsty readers. To relax from this, the famous Barcomi´s Café offers an excellent coffee as well as a delicious cheese cake or blueberry muffin.
Not far are two parks, Viktoria Park and Tempelhof - both are wonderful to explore and live life like a local.
