Bright and calm 2 bedroom appartment at the heart of Prenzlauer Berg

My bright and colourful and simply furnished apartment is located in the very heart of the highly desirable Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood on Marienburger Strasse, a 13 minute walk from Kollwitzplatz, 10 minutes from Volkspark Friedrichshain, and 10 minutes to Alexanderplatz by tram.

My Alma Mater, the Humboldt University is less than a 15 min bike ride away, I used to cycle to TU Berlin in 35 minutes door to door by bike, and it takes about as long by public transport. You can easily reach the outdoors swimming pool at lake Weissensee by tram in 10 minutes. The local park Friedrichshain is beautiful. Shopping and dining, and the many coffee shops are all very good. I am happy share my favourite restaurants and coffee shops nearby with you.

My flat is on the fourth floor with all windows leading to the inner courtyard of our building, hence very quiet, despite of being situated so centrally. It is 700 sqf/ 65 sm large, and the space is organised so as to make it best suitable for a single person, or a couple.

The bed is 1.40 m wide, and the bedroom is located in the back of the flat.
It's door leads to the spacey and open living room: The door from living room to kitchen has been removed during the house's renovation which makes for a really bright and lovely flat and a partly open space.

The kitchen is spacey too, with a dining table and six chairs of which I usually have one in the bedroom and one at my lovely desk in the living room, which for me is more of an office, with a couch that can be turned into a guest bed.

There are wooden floors in all rooms, and the bathroom is fully tiled.
The bathroom includes a full-sized bathtub with shower, as well as a washer.

There is no hallway in the flat, you enter it right from the door and into the kitchen, like in the good old days.

This is a charming neighbourhood with a Lidl and two organic supermarkets and an organic butcher right around the corner, as well as restaurants- it's nice and convenient without any side effects of noise or smell.

Nearby you find Kollwitzplatz with a nice local farmers market on thursdays and saturdays, saturdays also with crafts.
Several more markets are near by.

I have had the flat painted just a few months ago, and so there is one lovely coloured wall for a great atmosphere in every room.
I am here on and off, so the kitchen is fully equipped, but not as fully as when living here full time.

All in all, this is a lovely place to stay for an academic visit and for people who don't watch TV, as I have none. There is a plug for a TV in the flat, if you wanted to buy and install one, and I would ask you to remove it when leaving.

The flat is fully furnished.

A proof of income and a 1 month security deposit is required. I also ask for a professional cleaning at the end of the rental period (approx. 80 Euros).

If you have any questions, please contact me.
