Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
In a building dating from 1884 and listed as a historical landmark, the 55 square meter spacious apartment in the heart of Mitte is a gem. Located on a very central but quiet street, it has the original crown moulding, high ceiling and wide wooden floors, but with modern comforts: washing machine, heated towel racks, wifi, Bose iPhone stereo, etc. Down comforters and pillows ensure a cozy night's sleep. The original artworks compliment the carefully-chosen furnishings. The apartment is unusual in that it looks out over a private garden which guests have access to. Depending on the time of year, you'll see the wisteria blooming, or the roses, or the hydrangeas. It also has access to a private roof terrace (also shared by the building). The roof terrace has an extraordinary unobstructed view of Berlin's skyline.
There's a roof terrace, also shared with the building. The building is one of the highest apartments in the area, so the view of the Berlin skyline is special. From the roof one can see the assorted domes, church spires and rooftops that make for a beautiful vista.
The neighborhood is the historical center of the city, and it's still its heart. Mitte has Unter den Linden, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral, the Berlin wall memorial, and other sights. Museum Island, on the UNESCO World heritage list, is within pleasant walking distance from the apartment.
Closer still are the Berlin gallery and shopping districts around Auguststrasse, Linienstrasse, and Alte Schönhauser Strasse. The neighborhood is beautiful and vibrant, with many cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, and galleries.
It's a 7-minute walk to either Rosa-Luxembourg-Platz or Rosenthaler Platz U-Bahns. From Rosa Luxembourg, Alexanderplatz (main station in the area) is one stop away. Overground trams run north/south and east/west from Rosenthaler, and taxis are easy to find.
It's a beautiful apartment in the best area. You will have fun!
