“Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Berlin dans la jolie maison de Maike et Andréas La maison est spacieuse et très bien disposée. Le jardin et la terrasse sont très agréables pour prendre les repas en extérieur. Le quartier est piéton et donc, très calme. La maison est entourée de verdure et de parcs pour les enfants. La situation de la maison est parfaite pour visiter Berlin à pied ou en métro (station à 5' à pied). Nous avons fait un très bel échange et merci à Maike et Andréas de nous avoir fait confiance. Merci à Maike de nous avoir préparer un bon repas typique à notre retour chez nous ! Sophie et ses gars”
Maike's reviewsAs a host (2)
“(English below) Wir waren in Berlin im April 2012, und es war einfach herrlich! Die Wohnung war SEHR angenehm, gross und hell, und dazu super zentral! Wir hatten einen echt netten Kontakt mit Maike und Andreas, die alles für uns bestens organisiert hatten. Auf dem Tisch war ein Ordner mit allen nötigen Informationen und sehr guten Tips für den Alltag (Supermärkte, feine Restaurants, schöne Spielplätze, usw). Unsere Tochter mochte sehr die Glocken der Zionskirche hören, wir haben viel von der "Bow-Window" profitiert ;-) Zögert nicht mehr: ein Austausch mit diesen lieben Leuten lonht sich ja! ---- We were in Berlin in April 2012, and it was just wonderful! The apartment was VERY nice, big and bright, and really central. We had a really nice contact with Maike and Andreas, who had organized everything for us very well. On the table was a folder with all the necessary information and great tips for everyday life (supermarkets, fine restaurants, cool playgrounds, etc). Our daughter was very fond of listening to the bells of the church "Zionskirche", we enjoyed greatly from the "bow-window";-) Do not hesitate longer: you will appreciate your exchange with really nice people in a nice place!”
Where is it?
Our house and the green idyll around are located in the southern "Wedding" district, or more precisely in the "Brunnenviertel", a multi-cultural neighborhood that is just becoming popular for young people and families. It is just at the border of the famous districts Prenzlauer Berg (5 minutes walk in Eastern direction) and Mitte (5 minutes walk in Southern direction). In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, the old buildings were demolished and new houses were built.
It is a residential neighborhood with lower apartment buildings - a motley, peaceful, quiet neighborhood with much greenery. Shops are close-by, in minor walking distance (5 min to Lidl, 7 min to the BIG supermarket Kaufland, 7 min to organic food store). The "Mauerpark" with its great Sunday flea market is a 3-minute walk, and through the Gleimtunnel, within 5 minutes, you reach the busy Falkplatz and Gleimstrasse in Prenzlauer Berg with its many restaurants and cafés. There is also the childrens farm "Moritzhof" only 5 minutes away, where some horses, goats, sheep, pigs, chicken and rabbits are kept. The idyllic and vast park "Humboldthain" with a great vantage point, a public open-air pool with water slide, and the old anti-aircraft bunker (on which freeclimbers try their fortune), is also only 5 minutes away. The Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Str is a 10 minute walk.
In addition, at Bhf. Gesundbrunnen, which is 5 minutes away by foot, you can make the great bunker tours of the "Berliner Unterwelten association". This is one of the most impressive experiences one can have in Berlin - our absolute tip for all visitors of Berlin, and necessarily for our guests!
In short: We offer peace and quietude just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. Right in the center, yet particularly quiet and green.
Even though it is a residential area, there are shops in the immediate vicinity: two supermarkets are just a 3 minute walk, a bakery with coffee take-away can be reached in 1 minute. There is also a lovely café with awesome cakes just around the corner, and several Turkish delis. The Gesundbrunnen Center, a big shopping mall, is within walking distance, too (7 minutes). There, you can find all kind of shops from a big organic food store to food discounters and the typical chains like H&M.
Within 10 minutes by foot, you reach the lovely streets of Prenzlauer Berg with their many small independent shops and boutiques, many cafés and the typical liberal Berlin atmosphere.
