About our home

Our sun-filled penthouse apartment is located in the trendy district Mitte, just ten walking minutes from the Museumsinsel. You will find yourself very near the Friedrichstraße with its famous shopping oppurtunities, it leads you down to Gendarmenmarkt. There are plenty of bars, cafés, bistros, health-food stores, supermarkets, delis nearby - anything your heart desires. Theatres, museums, galleries and bookstores. Those who bring children will find playgrounds and parks within walking distance. Tram and train stations are within 5 min.
There is an inside swimming pool just across the street, and an opportunity for climbing or playing beach volley ball very near our apartment and in many parks you can play table tennis. Bikes are for rent all over the place - either on a per-day or on a per-ride basis.
In spite of the bustling neighborhood it is amazingly quiet on the fifth floor. A lift brings you to the fourth floor, where the main entrance is. On this floor you find the bedrooms and one bathroom (with bathtub). Upstairs, on the rooftop is a big living and dining area and a open plan kitchen. On this floor you find the second bathroom with a shower and washing and drying machine. What we love best is our southfacing terrace with lots of plants to keep it cosy and give it a touch of nature. Here you can enjoy breakfast or dinner or just take a break after sightseeing. And you can see the famous TV tower from here.

The kitchen has a dishwasher, stove, oven and a large fridge-freezer, toaster, kettle, etc.

Kat is allergic to cats - so unfortunately we cannot welcome cats. We have a dog that we do not necessarily bring along on our travels, and of course will not leave behind us in the apartment, but those who are allergic to dog hair should know.

This side of the Friedrichstraße is full of little boutique stores and buildings with hidden yards, for which Berlin is famous for. You could walk through Heckmannhöfe for example, then passing the Synagoge, take a peak into the Kunsthof (art yard) and then cross the street into the Monbijou Park right to the Bode Museum which is the east spot of the Museumsinsel. Most people stop at the Spree and take in the view, watch the passing boats and maybe have a drink and relax in the cozy seats of the "strand bar" of the Spree. Maybe you stroll by one evening and find several people dancing Charleston - this is Berlin pure.
