Berlin-Neukölln-Rixdorf Apartment on Böhmischer Platz: November - April

Berlin-Neukölln-Rixdorf Apartment on Böhmischer Platz: June + August

The fully-furnished 96-square-meter apartment is a 19th century 3-room “Altbau” with high ceilings, wood floors and balcony overlooking Böhmischer (“Bohemian”) Platz.

It's unique feature is the location: directly overlooking a sunny square and in the heart of old Rixdorf, a community founded in 1737 by Bohemian refugees, and which remains in tact with tiny cobbled lanes and half-timbered barns.

The apartment is available for six months, and is suitable for an academic on sabbatical, or a post-doc, that is looking for a spring - summer rental, or as an entryway to a longer, more permanent stay in Berlin. There is a super sweet cat that comes with the apartment – and thus a discount in the price is offered.

The apartment was renovated 3 years ago and is furnished with a mix of contemporary design and several antique pieces.

The large kitchen is well lit with overhead lighting and wall lamps. It comes equipped with dishwasher, breakfast table for two, a separate two-person bench, full-size fridge and pantry, 5-burner stove top, oven and a washing machine.

The spacious bedroom has a queen-size bed and balcony. The mattress is of excellent orthopedic grade quality. Bedding, sheets and towels are all provided, with ample space in the drawers and closet for all your needs.
The living room has a dining table that seats 8 people. There is a sitting area with a large L-shaped couch, armchair, coffee table. We have a Sonos-connected stereo with speakers in all rooms, plus WiFi but no TV.
There is a large desk in the study, along with a full couch (with pull-out bed) and printer-copier-scanner available for your use.

The bathroom's main feature is an oversized floor-level shower with fixed rainwater shower head and hand-spray attachment. The sink and wall-hung toilet are new, as is the heated towel rack.

The flat is brilliantly located: in tiny Rixdorf with its quiet, village-like feel, and yet in the heart of Neukölln, one of Berlin’s most international and off-beat districts.

One block over is the larger Richard Platz along with multiple restaurants and stores on Karl Marx Strasse and Sonnenalle. Both metro (S41 / U7) and bus (M41) service are within 5 minutes walking distance and offer quick access to the adjacent Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg neighborhoods, as well as a direct train connection to Schönefeld airport.

Personal belongings have been moved into basement storage and into a separate closet space.

The €1650 rent includes water, heat, electricity, housing allowance charges and internet. Also thrown in are two monthly metro cards, free of charge.

Not included is a cleaning charge: €60 / month. We request a €250 refundable security deposit.

Apartment measurements: living-room (31m), bedroom (19m), study (15m), kitchen (18m), bathroom (10m), balcony (3m).

Suitable for 1-2 persons; guests can stay for short visits on a comfortable pull-out sofa.

About Me
I'm a freelance journalist, Columbia Journalism School graduate ('03) and recently coming off a Robert Bosch Stiftung cross-border reporting grant. I'm living in Berlin since 2007 and the owner of an apartment in the Neukölln neighborhood since 2014. I'm originally from the New York City area, while my wife, Agata, grew up in Poland. I'm now considering a move towards a masters or PhD in sustainability studies. I'm in transition, having ended a one-year contract and returned to full-time freelancing on topics of climate, sustainable production and green energy.
