About our home

On offer is our home: a large and modern apartment in the eastern centre of Berlin.

We built the two houses on Kollwitzstraße with our neighbors and moved in early 2008. We all share the big garden around the garden house (with lawn, trees, a trampoline, a sandbox, slide, basketball hoop etc.) and the underground garage.

Our flat is a maisonette in the house facing the street. The kitchen is on the 2nd floor with a large table (sits 8-10), a sofa and a large balcony with a garden view. Besides, there are two separate bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath tub and washing machine) and a bedroom with a double bed 160x200 cm.

Our living-room with sofa, TV and DVD (and a guest bed/lounge 200x200 cm, if needed) is on the 3rd floor and gives access to the second balcony with garden view. Our children's two separate rooms with a 140x200 cm bed each share the third balcony facing the street. There is also a third bathroom with shower.

More about us

  1. We are Magnus (16), Mira (18), Heike (51) and Norbert (50). When Magnus doesn't go to school or play basketball for ALBA Berlin, he likes to hang out with his friends, his smartphone and / or his Playstation. Mira likes dancing, swimming, music and meeting her friends. Heike works for the VATMH and Norbert is a producer for a public radio station.

    We have exchanged our place four times so far and we would love to do it more often. We love our home and would treat yours with great care and responsibility.
