Free wireless Internet access is available. I will provide a multimedia player also. You can use for it your own photos, music and movies of your USB stick or harddisc.

You’re an artist, designer or photographer? World travelled, work in new media or in music? Here you will find one of Berlin's creative roots. From romantic to rock’n’roll. From the unusual to the totally crazy. From trash to art. Simply everything is here on your doorstep.
Pardon, of course "normal people" are also welcome to become acquainted with the heart of Kreuzberg and get an authentic picture of Germany’s most exciting area and one of the world's most exciting districts.
The location is absolutely perfect – without ifs and buts! You will hardly find anything comparable in Berlin.
The very central location allows direct and fast access to all destinations in West and East Berlin. Free parking is possible on the street in front of the house.
The apartment was fully renovated in January 2012. All of the rooms have been overhauled, and fully refitted with new furnishings, with attention to every detail. We have put an emphasis here on the combination of original design with unique pieces, in conjunction with comfort. In this way, a delightful and charming period-piece bed (matching the house) and a media-corner with an iPod connector complement each other wonderfully.
In the same house, you can also book a large 2-bedroom apartment (65 sqm) or a stylish 4-bedroom apartment (110 sqm).
The apartment is situated in Berlin's Kreuzberg district. Its central location means that it is not far from Kudamm in the west, or Potsdamer Platz, Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden or the government quarter in the east. You will live in a perfect location between city east and city west.
The apartment has generous space for luggage and clothes. The fully equipped, new kitchen - with cooker, fridge, crockery and utensils (from wine glasses to pots and pans), cutlery, coffee machine, toaster – lends itself to both a quick breakfast as well as a sumptuous dinner. Additionally, there is a dishwasher.
Optimally situated in an interesting quarter of the multicultural district Kreuzberg, you will be in the centre of Berlin’s trendy, up-and-coming zone. Art and culture combine with a wonderfully vibrant flair. You will be living at the beginning of the Oranienstrasse, which is the central nerve of the quarter, and which formerly had the magical postcode “Kreuzberg SO 36” (a famous location of the same name is also nearby).
Countless shopping facilities, and a lively cultural scene and nightlife are right on your doorstep. This area is particularly known for that, and it attracts curious visitors from all over the world. A large and beautiful market on Maybachufer is nearby and is considered one of the most interesting in Berlin. There is also a well-known organic market right outside your door, and an organic shop in the house.
You will only be a few metres walk away from a famous swimming pool, and likewise a large park (Görlitzer Bahnhof). Numerable attractions in the area have been (or will be) described in books, songs and films.
A special characteristic of this area is above-ground subway, which was built in 1902, as the first in Germany.
There is here a typical mixture of antique shops, numerous cafes and restaurants, art shops, galleries, antiquarian bookstores, and small businesses. The many small and medium sized shops in the vicinity entice you to a rich and varied shopping experience.
Berlin has an extensive public transport network. Many of the tourist attractions are easily and quickly accessible. Because of the apartment’s central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all.
The apartment is situated directly between the Berlin subway stations Kottbusser Tor and Görlitzer Bahnhof. Several subway lines, (night) busses and a taxi stand are also nearby. With the bus you can reach Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz, the Bauhaus Museum, Kudamm and many other of Berlin’s tourist attractions, all quickly and directly.
The nearest motorway exit is located a few minutes away south of the apartment and is called Tempelhofer Dam (A100).

Berlin-Kreuzberg: at the centre of the action
Lausitzer Platz was created in 1882. Between 1890-93 the Emmaus Kirche (church) was built. In its original form, before its destruction in the Second World War, this was the largest church in Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral excepted.
The first underground railway in Germany went into operation in 1902, after six years of construction, and travelled past Lausitzer Platz as an elevated railway.
Following the 1st of May Festival in 1987 (this workers’ day festival has been held since the beginning of the eighties) the Lausitzer Platz witnessed street battles. These "May riots" developed out of the "traditional" conflicts on 1 May in Berlin.
In 1989 Kreuzberg was released, by the fall of the Berlin Wall, from its status as an “island” in the centre of Berlin.

Reviews for this host's other properties
wie beim letzten mal habe ich mich total wohl gefühlt und gerne mal wieder.
Completamente adecuado a nuestras espectativas.
Cozy place, good location.
Ich war für 11 Tage in der Wohnung. Alles war zu meiner Zufriedenheit. Die Wohnung war sauber, in einer tollen Lage mit super Verkehrsanbindung und bietet alles, was man für einen Aufenthalt in Berlin braucht. Auch die Schlüsselübergabe funktionierte perfekt. Das einzige, was wünschenswert wäre, ist ein Backofen. Ich würde wieder buchen.
Das Apartement ist super gelegen, sehr zental. Die Steinstraße ist eine Nebenstraße und das Apartement liegt im Hinterhaus, daher auch ziemlich ruhig. Es war alles sauber und gepflegt, ein paar kleine optische Mängel sind zu vernachlässigen. Die Ausstattung ist insges. gut, ein paar Müslischalen wären nicht schlecht. Insgesamt prima!
Lage der Wohnung top. Alles andere unzumutbar. Dreckig, verwohnt, Matratze, Geschirr, Töpfe völlig verschmutzt. Vermieter nicht erreichbar. Heizung funktionierte nicht.
At first I worried, as I saw a lot of negative comments about WIMDU and I had already paid. However, I was very positively surprised and quickly put at ease:
The responses from the website were prompt and professional. The apartment was clean and the interaction with Martin was excellent. Pick up of the keys was friendly and professional. The apartment had everything I needed and was in good order. Location is ideal; very central to public transport, cafe's, shops. The apartment quiet and around the corner there is action, if that is what you like.
One minor matter, which is why I give it 4 stars and not 5 (I think 4.5 stars is realistic): The blinds on one window (shower+ toilet) needs replacing. The rest of the apartment is in excellent shape. I can highly recommend Martin and the apartment.
Interessante zentrale Lage!
FeWo im Zentrum mit allen erdenklichen Vorteilen:
24 Std. Supermarkt unten in Haus, Frühstückscafe's, super Restaurants, ... alles in der verkehrsberuhigten Straße vor dem Haus!
Aber natürlich Berlin City!
Localización excelente, apartamento acogedor y anfitrión muy amable y simpático. Sin duda, muy recomendable.
Überrascht...von der netten Betreuung und dem Apartment. Sehr zentral gelegen mit guter Anbindung ÖPNV und verhungern kann man in Schöneberg eh nicht.
Danke an Martin!
