Beautiful Prenzlauerberg Studio

Our Home

Our lovely studio is newly renovated, in a turn-of-the-century building in the former East Berlin, just a short walk from Volksparkfriedrichshain.

Approximately 40 m2, it has a fully equipped kitchen, wooden floors, high ceilings, a double bed, and a sofa which can be opened into a single bed.

More about this property

The bathroom has a shower, a large washbasin, a toilet and a washing machine.

Our apartment is on the third floor, there is no elevator.

A small balcony looks out onto the sunny courtyard. You can take your coffee here in warm weather!

We have wireless internet and a printer/scanner. It's a wonderful holiday spot, but also a great place to research/write.

Transportation to the Staatsbibliothek on the 200 Bus only 20 minutes (stop: Potsdamerplatz) and to the new Grimm-Zentrum in only 15 mintutes (stop: Staatsoper).

No smoking indoors, please!


Our Neighbourhood

The apartment is located in an attractive part of Prenzlauerberg known as the Bà¶tzowviertel. It is a quiet area, more residential area with cobbled streets, lovely bakeries, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and book shops just out the door.

More about the neighbourhood

The beautiful city park Volksparkfriedrichshain is just two streets away and offers a luxurious space for jogging, picnics and cultural events (an open air cinema in the summer). (There are also tennis and volley ball courts and a climbing rock.)

From our apartment you are rarely more than 20 minutes from anywhere you might want to go. The 200 bus, which runs along the park, stops 5 minutes from the flat and you can take it direct to Alexanderplatz a major transportation hub. The M4 Tram serves the same function, but also takes you to the Hackescher Markt.

The 200 is a major tourism bus. From Alexanderplatz it continues along Unter den Linden, past the state opera to Potsdamer Platz, the Kulturforum, Tiergarten and on to the Zoo and zoological gardens.

We are also only minutes (7 on the M10) from Berlin's famous Mauerpark, where there is a huge flee market on Sunday's in all seasons. The M10 will also take you south-east to Friedrichshain/Kreuzberg (Warschauerstr.) in 10 minutes.

You are very well connected while in a very calm part of the city!


About Us

I am looking to swap the Berlin apartment for something equivalent in Frankfurt/Main this coming academic year - either for the winter semester or the whole year.

We have had great luck swapping in the past, in Paris, Marseille and Provence.

We are graduate students, based in Chicago for the time-being.

More about us

We are working towards phds in art history and literature respectively.

We have a close relationship to Berlin and have been living here on and off for the past 4 years. We love the cultural diversity it offers and its non-stop embrace of contemporary (and non-contemporary) arts.

Chicago meanwhile is like the Berlin of the United States. In both cities, we would be happy to offer you any advice on museums, theatres or excursions!
