About our home

Hello - We are looking to swap our lovely Berlin home for ideally Los Angeles this winter but NY or even more rural Upstate NY, Mexico City Paris, Rome and London are also possible and we are open to any other possibilities - dates are flexible but longer exchanges are preferred .

Our 95 m2, (1000 sq. feet) 2 bedroom apartment is on the 3rd floor of a modernist architectural style building completed 2015. It has tons of light and open floor planning with floor to ceiling windows in the front main living room which connects to the hallway / entrance and the open kitchen, 2 bed rooms; 1 with a 160 cm bed with an organic coconut futon mattress and clothes storage; 1 kids bedroom with a day bed and a cot suitable up to about 3 years old - depending on your child - and toys and books (our son is born summer 2015 so suiting a baby - toddler mostly).
The kitchen is well equipped and we have a ton of books and very fast (fiber) internet - no TV though..
Hard wood floors and floor heating through out, a large south/west facing balcony and a bathroom with separate shower and bath and a washing machine (no dryer) and towel heater.

Elevator in building and very friendly neighbors.
Street parking is free and usually easy to find.


The apartment is located in the heart of Berlin in the neighborhood Kreuzberg bordering Mitte right on a small park and a block away from Oranienplatz , the house was actually build exactly on where the wall used to be, Kreuzberg being the old 'West' and Mitte 'east' Berlin. Its a very lively yet family friendly neighborhood with several cosy local restaurants amazing coffee roasters, art supply shops, books stores, galleries a beautiful indoors farmers market, small parks, communal garden prinzessinnengarten), a small petting zoo, playgrounds, the canal and even the Museums Insel within walking distance. Its really a unique location for experiencing and exploring berlin with a strong local neighborhood feeling as well as being right in the middle of everything.
