About our home

My apartment has a large terrace over the lake from which you can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets. The house has access to a boat/swimming dock and I have an inflatable canoe that seats 2 you are welcome to use.
The apartment is decorated with antique furniture, the bedroom is South Seas/Thai style, all rooms have lovely views of the lake, the kitchen is fully equipped except for a microwave and there is a black marble fireplace in the living room. In the summer I light candles in it, starting with autumn, logs can be burned for a warm, cozy atmosphere with hot Glühwein and books galore to read.
You are in the heart of the most beautiful part of Berlin, in Grunewald, with breathtaking ancient mansions and spectacular gardens. The Koenigssee, "Kings Lake" is one of a series of four smaller lakes all interconnected. Paddle along the shorelines for intimate views of the private gardens of Berlins most beautiful properties.
10min by car or taxi into the center of West Berlin. Several good restaurants and supermarkets are a 2 min drive or 10min walk away, the train station is a 10min walk for easy access to all parts of Berlin. Tegel Airport is a 15min taxi ride away.
There will be a 100€ fee for cleaning after departure, due upon arrival. We do not have life jackets, so please bring your own if this is an issue. The lake is safe to swim in, the water is clean. Some summers we have a bit of detached underwater plant growth - just push it to the side if you encounter any on your morning swim. If you come in the winter, you may get lucky if the lake is frozen - covered in snow it looks like a fairy tale.
Please understand that I will accept only stays of 5 days or longer at this property. Due to the many antiques, sculptures and artwork only suited for adults. No pets.

Where is it?


Berlin has practically everything you may desire to offer. The options are virtually endless. Ask me!

Buzzy restaurants
Close by or further away
Cool bars
Same as restaurants. One of the best bars in Berlin is a 20min stroll or 5min cab drive away.
Cozy cafés
15mins by foot a cafe that was plucked out of Vienna with the most decadent cakes and petit fours imaginable. Goodbye slender hips!
Retail therapy
Kudamm, the western shopping mekka with any high end designer that you can think of is less than a 15 min taxi ride or bus ride away
Bit of culture
Philharmonic? Theatre? Ballet? And museums amongst the best of the world at your service.
Walks in the park
In this part of the city, no parks necessary, just stroll down the streets and you will be in awe at the most incredible fairy tale mansions and gardens you can imagine. 15min away one of the biggest city parks ever in the middle of the city - King Fritz used to to hunt there. Families picnic and barbeque there in the summer.
Day tripping
Potsdam is a short 20min train ride away with castles, mansions and parks to die for.
