Berlin Central Apartment
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The spacious 53sqm one-bedroom apartment is located in a quiet side street, a short walk away from the Tiergarten park and a 5 minute flat walk to the Bellevue S-Bahn station. It is very centrally located and many of Berlins' major attractions (Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Zoo, river Spree, Tiergarten park, Potsdamer Platz) are within easy walking distance. The apartment is quiet, secure, fitted with good quality contemporary furnishings and has a balcony that overlooks a leafy garden area. Boat trips depart locally and the riverbank is a stunning place to pass a lazy summer afternoon watching the boats sail by.

The Brandenburg/Berlin region
Predominately a city break, there are many parks, forests and lakes in and around Berlin which are accessible by public transport and the city is the urban beach capital of the world with over 30 urban beach bars and of course numerous biergartens.
Berlin's main attractions are easily accessible from the apartment and many are within walking distance. From Bellevue S-Bahn there are regular trains connecting to Berlin's densely woven transport system (only 2 stops to Zoologischer Garten.) The nearest U-Bahn (underground station) is Turmstrasse which is approx 15 minutes walk. The spectacular new main train station (Hauptbahnhof) is only 15 minutes on foot and taxis are in plentiful supply here.
There are plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes in the local neighbourhood. Several are found at the intersection between Alt-Moabit and Kirsche-Strasse - a short walk away
We like CoffeeMamas at the top of Kirche-Strasse. Laid back atmosphere, lovely coffee and cakes. Open in time for breakfast.
Further down Kirche-Strasse, once you reach the bridge, you will find the modern Cafe Lavien and across the road a gorgeous cafe-bar restaurant on a boat on the river Spree - lovely in the afternoon sunshine or on a warm summer evening
Cross over the bridge - look at the ornate elephants - and you will find Konditorei cafe, with a garden terrace. There are plenty more nice cafes/restaurants on Kirschestrasse but we have not had the opportunity to test them all yet.
We like Otti Imbiss on Alt-Moabit for Turkish kebabs, falafel, pide etc. It is fast-food but good value and provides a tasty take-away. Head up to Alt-Moabit, turn left and it is maybe 200 yards away, across the road.
Just around the corner from Schlecker on Alt-Moabit on Thomasuissestrasse is a lovely cafe (I can't recall its name) serving a brunch at the weekend. Very friendly, peaceful and relaxed, and recommended.
Teehaus in the Tiergarten is fantastic. It has a great location, has an excellent beer garden and is well worth a trip. Cross over the river on the foot-bridge, turn left along the river and take the path to the right, just as you have gone under the railway bridge. Take an immediate right and follow the path. It is a 7 or 8 minute walk. On your way, you will pass the adventure playground where the kids can let off steam.
In the Bellevue S-Bahn station is a small Thai-Chinese restaurant serving lovely food at very good prices - around €5 for a main course. This restaurant is much better than it looks and there are tables and chairs outdoors in the summer
Just on the other side of the road from the Thai place is a nice Grill Restaurant. It has a nice terrace just under the bridge.
Heading in the direction of the Hauptbahnhoff at 129 Alt-Moabit you will reach - after a 5 minute walk - Don Giovannis restaurant, serving good value pizzas, pasta and other Italian food
There is another nice Italian Trattoria very close on Flemingstrasse
Steinecke is a great little bakery just around the corner that you can see from the terrace. Opens at 6.30 (7 on Sunday) in the morning in time for your breakfast
Saloniki does a great range of olives, feta, tsatziki and the likes for a take-out and will make a great picnic. Good prices too.
Angkor Wat on Paulstrasse (at the railway end) is a nice Cambodian restaurant
We like Neumann's for a beer. Ignore the beer garden outside and head into this large, traditional German bar. Turn right on Alt Moabit and it's a short walk.
The church on the corner of Alt-Moabit and Kirche-Strasse has a beer garden in the warm months
Next to Hansaplatz metro station is a good-value Italian place with a large terrace in the summer
A little further along, at Klopstockstrasse 2, is Giraffe Restaurant. It's a nice restaurant located in the unlikely ground floor of a tower block of flats. Again, it has a nice terrace in the summer
Sempre does good pizza and pasta for around €5 a plate. It's next to the small shopping arcade at Hansplatz. It's a pleasant 10 minute walk. It has a great terrace in the summer and free WiFi
Next to the Ablon Hotel are two or three upmarket bistros and restaurants. There is also a Kaiser supermarket open Monday to Saturday. There's also a branch of Berliner Bank here
Deutsche-Bank has a branch with ATMs, close to the church on Alt-Moabit. Turn left when you reach the main road
You can find a Pennymarkt supermarket on Alt-Moabit. Turn right at the main road and it's a short walk, near the first set of traffic lights. Open until around 9pm but closed on Sunday
Slightly further along towards Hauptbahnhoff is ALDI supermarket
There is a modern shopping mall in the Hauptbahnhoff including a Kaisers supermarket. Open until midnight Monday to Saturday and until 10pm on Sunday.
