The holiday apartment
The apartment has large south-facing windows, with an undisturbed view over a quiet courtyard and over the neighbourhood's roof and tree -tops. The apartment is 50 m² in size, with a small kitchen, bathroom, corridor and a large 35 m² room.
There is enough space for 1-4 guests. It has a French bed and a sofa-bed, which is 2x2m in size when pulled out. TV, radio and wireless DSL internet are available (no telephone). The apartment has regular central heating. It lies on the 4th floor (no lift).
There are other friends in the house also renting out rooms and apartments, making it possible to accommodate a small group or a few couples. Altogether, we speak German, English, Italian, Russian, and Arabic.
I live in the neighbouring apartment. There is also always someone in the house to answer questions or give helpful tips about special events in the city.
3 bicycles (5 euros each per day) are also available to rent.
The apartment lies close to the Mauerparks, which were originally the border lines of the Berlin wall in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Every summer evening, they are transformed into gardens for barbecue parties. Once there was even a small camp fire, around which one could comfortably relax while sipping a drink! There is a flea market there on Sundays, which is definitely worth a visit. In the front part of Gleim Street, one can find cafés and bars, one after the other – African, French, Thai, Indian, Spanish, Italian and German food are all served.
3 minutes’ walk to the underground and city train stations - Gesundbrunnen, or to underground (U-bahn) station - Voltastrasse The M10 (metro tram) runs every 3 minutes (open 24 hours), between Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain / Kreuzberg. Tip: exploring Berlin on bicycle is much more exciting. They are available to rent, for e.g. in the Culture Brewery, where guided tours are offered in winter and summer
Around the corner, at Falkplatz, lies the Max-Schmeling-Hall, where large concerts and sport events are held.
On the other end of Gleim Street is the Colosseum Cinema. The Schönhauser Allee and Kulturbrauerei, with discos, salons, restaurants, clubs, galleries, Christmas market and bicycle rentals, can be reached within 10 minutes’ on foot. It takes 15 minutes’ by underground to reach Alexanderplatz (Alex) or Hackeschen Markt / Scheunenviertel, where diverse designer shops and galleries can be found.
Within a 2 minute walk, you will be able to shop at Aldi, Lidl, or the more expensive Real Supermarket. Diverse shops can be found in Gesundbrunnen-Centre or in Schönhauser Allee Arcades.
There is a Tartanbahn in Jahn-Sport-Park at the Max-Schmeling-Hall which is ideal for jogging. Or the nearby Humboldhain park on Brunnen Street is also a good option.
In summer it is well worth a short trip (about 30 minutes by city train) to Weissensee – a real lake in the middle of Berlin suitable for swimming.
