A beautiful family apartment with 3 bedrooms in the buzzing heart of Friedrichshain. Surrounded by cafes, bars, restaurants and all amenities. Centrally located with excellent transport links and great access to all that Berlin has to offer.

The space

This modern apartment is part of a newly renovated school from former East Berlin, with many original features and maintaining its old school charm. It is well situated in the much-loved neighbourhood of Friedrichshain, an area full of character and with a vibrant nightlife and cafe culture. The apartment is located on a street with numerous cafes, restaurants, pubs and convenience stores all within walking distance. Friedrichshain is located within the heart of Berlin on either side of the River Spree and trendy Prenzlauerberg, Kreuzberg and Mitte are a short train/tram ride away. The nearest S-Bahn station (Ostkreuz) is only a few minutes walk (400m) and will take you directly to Schönefeld airport (25 mins) and the centre of Berlin (10 mins) where you can delve into Berlin's extensive history.

Within a 10 minute walk you will find yourself in the popular Simon-Dach Strasse, which has an abundance of bars; cafes; restaurants; fashion boutiques and independent gift shops. Cassiopeia offers an alternative twist to the area with a climbing wall, outdoor cinema, skatepark, games rooms and bars. On a weekend Boxhagenerplatz provides a fantastic Saturday farmers market and on Sunday a flea market. There are many options for Sunday brunch (a must-do Berlin tradition), try Schneeweiss and Datscha.

The modern apartment is 98 sqm and has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a large open plan kitchen/living room. There is one bedroom with a large double bed. The second bedroom has a small child's bed and a double sofa bed, there is an additional bedroom joined to this room with a mid-height bunk bed. The apartment has a good-sized balcony with furniture and we also have a large communal garden with picnic benches and trampolines. It has a fully equipped kitchen and has Wifi access.

The apartment is family friendly with many toys, dvds and entertainment. Within walking distance are many Kindercafes and children's playgrounds. Travel cot, high chair and baby equipment is also available.

Berlin has endless possibilities for sight-seeing, relaxing, lakes, walks, shopping and nightlife. Steeped in history you will find sight-seeing tours (walking, boat, bike, trabis) all over the city. One stop from the apartment on the S-Bahn is Treptower Park, a beautiful large park set beside the river. It has boat hire, cafes and perfect for picnicking or a leisurely stroll. A train ride out of the city and you will find stunning Potsdam with historical Prussian places and a relaxed atmosphere.

The apartment comes with a private parking space. There is a lift and wheel chair access.
We love Berlin and we hope you will enjoy our home and everything that this vibrant city has to offer.

We had a perfect stay at Naidene&Michael's place. The apartment is very clean and cozy, equipped with everything you might need. We used the lovely balcony a lot. The private parking space and bike cellar are an additional plus. The location couldn't be better, it's right in the middle of Friedrichshain. Though we didn't meet Naidene in person, the communication with her was great throughout and her neighbour was just as easy to communicate with. We would love to return.

A wonderful, wonderful apartment in a great neighbourhood with plenty to keep the kids happy both indoors (toys, toys..toys!!) and out. Ostkreuz S-bahn station is just a stone's throw away which makes for easy access to the rest of Berlin. The experience from start to finish was flawless and we could not have wished for a better place to stay with our 3 young boys. Highly recommended!

We were welcomed by neighbor Ali, a very friendly Englishman. The apartment was like on the pictures, clean, roomy, modern and it has a great shower! We loved the neighborhood, all types of people, a very nice restaurant in the backyard (Turnhalle) and a Lidl around the corner... station Ostkreuz is at 5 minutes walking. Within a day we spoke about: 'going HOME for a shower or a nap'... a home away from home!

The flat was beautiful, clean and spacious, just as pictured. The location couldn´t have been better, everything you need is just around the corner. A superb bakery, organic supermarket, Lidl, nice restaurants and cafes, parks... Even if the neighborhood is very lively, it was nice and quiet during nighttime. Would recommend this place especially for a family.
