2 rooms in this nice apartment are available. The 2 rooms together will take up to 4 persons, ideally 2 persons in 25 square meter room, and 1 person in 18 square meter room.
This description is for the 25 square meter room with balcony.
The minimum stay is 5 Nights.
Within Berlin – Friedenau – belongs to the older quarters and was incorporated into the city around the 1920´s. Because of its art-nouveau buildings it has a sweet, village-like flair. It has attracted writers (Uwe Johnson and Günther Grass) and other artists (Karl_Schmidt-Rottluff) and still does. Friedenau/Schöneberg has a flourhishing gallery scene – for example it is hosting a 2-day event every autumn: (URL HIDDEN) which displays works of 40-50 different artists. I myself will exhibit my Objects [turned wooden art].
Berlin´s Main Concert Hall – the Philharmonie – is 10 min away by cab. As are the most important museums in the Centre.
Other than that you find nice cafes and restaurants in walking distance. Subway-, S-Bahn-, and Bus-Station are pretty close by - just 5 min walk. Autobahn access within 500 meters.
You can reach the airport in 45 min and the main train station in about 15 min.

Medium size bathroom, aptly planned so it feels spacious. Light, well aired.
I want to mention that there is no aircondition. We are in Germany, after all... The apartment has many windows - the danger of congestion is close to nil.
There is an Indian Restaurant just around the corner:
India-Palace, which has yummy food.
A little further you find a nice Cafe/Restaurant 'Lula' which is featured/mentioned lately quite often in local newspapers and magazines. Great coffee, international cuisine.
On Hauptstrasse [3 minutes walk] itself you will find are two excellent Restaurants.
One is the Italian Restaurant Trattoria del Corso - Lunch/Diner - Its really good, and Tomasa with an rather international menu. This place is very nice for breakfast which is also served in the garden-area - I go there quite often with friends.
There is another cafe/beer garden next to the S-Bahn station - 4 Min from home.
