About our home

This is a beautiful large room in the historical Russian buildings of Karl-Marx-Allee Berlin. The flat is being shared with a great housemate who is into fashion, arts and design. The view is exceptional and you will be located super central. Groceries, subway stations, art galleries, gyms; everything is reachable within minutes. I use the room as living space and art studio, it's sunny and very spacious. Since I am a photographer I travel a l lot and often don't use the apartment myself. We have some house rules and find important to keep the place beautiful, tidy and peaceful and are just as much very relaxed and open for interesting lovely new people. You are allowed to smoke on the French balcony or in the kitchen. In our pretty bathroom with 3 channel light system you can take long baths and chill out after your adventures in Berlin. The double bed is soft and cosy with plenty of pillows and sheets. You can lay down in candle light and enjoy the city view from your bed with a glass of wine!

Where is it?


The neighbourhood is rather quiet. It's a mixture of artists, elderly people and families. A calm spot right in the middle of everything. In front of the house is the beautiful Karl-Marx-Allee which can at peak times get busy with traffic. You'll always hear the calming sound of water of the prestigious fountain in front of the window (off at night and during winter months). Right across the street is the subway station (U5) which connects you to all lines. If you want it really busy everything is within walking minutes; the beautiful cinema Kino international, bars, restaurants, grocery stores and boutiques as well as a huge shopping centre (10 minutes walk). The park will give you some green time out when needed. On weekends you will find plenty of flea markets with vintage fashion, good food and street music too.

Buzzy restaurants
There are two wonderful Italian restaurants right next to my house. Walking 10 minutes you find a large variety of cuisines in the bohemian area of Mitte. From chic and pricy to relaxed and reasonable - everything is here.
Cool bars
You will have direct access to all the cool bars of Kreuzberg, Mitte and Friedrichshain. The location is perfectly central so even late at night you won't have to travel far to get back home and do bar hopping at its finest.
Cozy cafés
I am happy to recommend all my favourite coffee places down the street, mostly with wifi connection and great relaxed atmosphere.
Retail therapy
Shopping centres as well as more unique boutiques and vintage stores are within walking distance.
Bit of culture
The house itself is a piece of culture as well as Karl-Marx-Allee with all its historical buildings. My flat is located in one of the largest and most prestigious buildings in the area with view onto a big fountain right in front.
Walks in the park
Volkspark Friedrichshain is only a few metres away where you can have long walks and visit the beer gardens and restaurants.
Spot of exercise
There are plenty of gyms, yoga studios and dance studios near by. I take ballet classes opposite my house!
Day tripping
Alexanderplatz is a 10 minute walk away from which several tourist buses start city tours. Sine you are right in the centre of everything and public transport is perfect you can reach all areas of Berlin without problems if you want to explore the city independently. Bike renting is also very common here, so if the weather is good why not exploring Berlin by bike? :)
