The apartment has a living room with a stunning view over the square and the U-Bahn; a fully equipped kitchen with a dining area; a separate bedroom; a comfortable bathroom in which you can relax wonderfully. Free wireless Internet access is available.
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, and the blend of modern facilities with selected classic elements. We guarantee that this gallery-style is good for your soul and your peace.
You’re an artist, designer or photographer? World travelled, work in new media or in music? Here you will find one of Berlin's creative roots. From romantic to rock’n’roll. From the unusual to the totally crazy. From trash to art. Simply everything is here on your doorstep.
Pardon, of course "normal people" are also welcome to become acquainted with the heart of Kreuzberg and get an authentic picture of Germany’s most exciting area and one of the world's most exciting districts.
The location is absolutely perfect – without ifs and buts! You will hardly find anything comparable in Berlin.
The very central location allows direct and fast access to all destinations in West and East Berlin. Free parking is possible on the street in front of the house.
The apartment was fully renovated in January 2012. All of the rooms have been overhauled, and fully refitted with new furnishings, with attention to every detail. We have put an emphasis here on the combination of original design with unique pieces, in conjunction with comfort. In this way, a delightful and charming period-piece bed (matching the house) and a media-corner with an iPod connector complement each other wonderfully.
In the same house, you can also book a large 2-bedroom apartment (65 sqm) or a stylish 4-bedroom apartment (110 sqm).
The apartment is situated in Berlin's Kreuzberg district. Its central location means that it is not far from Kudamm in the west, or Potsdamer Platz, Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden or the government quarter in the east. You will live in a perfect location between city east and city west.
The apartment has generous space for luggage and clothes. The fully equipped, new kitchen - with cooker, fridge, crockery and utensils (from wine glasses to pots and pans), cutlery, coffee machine, toaster – lends itself to both a quick breakfast as well as a sumptuous dinner. Additionally, there is a dishwasher and a washing machine.
Optimally situated in an interesting quarter of the multicultural district Kreuzberg, you will be in the centre of Berlin’s trendy, up-and-coming zone. Art and culture combine with a wonderfully vibrant flair. You will be living at the beginning of the Oranienstrasse, which is the central nerve of the quarter, and which formerly had the magical postcode “Kreuzberg SO 36” (a famous location of the same name is also nearby).
Countless shopping facilities, and a lively cultural scene and nightlife are right on your doorstep. This area is particularly known for that, and it attracts curious visitors from all over the world. A large and beautiful market on Maybachufer is nearby and is considered one of the most interesting in Berlin. There is also a well-known organic market right outside your door, and an organic shop in the house.
You will only be a few metres walk away from a famous swimming pool, and likewise a large park (Görlitzer Bahnhof). Numerable attractions in the area have been (or will be) described in books, songs and films.
A special characteristic of this area is above-ground subway, which was built in 1902, as the first in Germany.
There is here a typical mixture of antique shops, numerous cafes and restaurants, art shops, galleries, antiquarian bookstores, and small businesses. The many small and medium sized shops in the vicinity entice you to a rich and varied shopping experience.
Berlin-Kreuzberg: at the centre of the action
Lausitzer Platz was created in 1882. Between 1890-93 the Emmaus Kirche (church) was built. In its original form, before its destruction in the Second World War, this was the largest church in Berlin, the Berlin Cathedral excepted.
The first underground railway in Germany went into operation in 1902, after six years of construction, and travelled past Lausitzer Platz as an elevated railway.
Following the 1st of May Festival in 1987 (this workers’ day festival has been held since the beginning of the eighties) the Lausitzer Platz witnessed street battles. These "May riots" developed out of the "traditional" conflicts on 1 May in Berlin.
In 1989 Kreuzberg was released, by the fall of the Berlin Wall, from its status as an “island” in the centre of Berlin.
Berlin has an extensive public transport network. Many of the tourist attractions are easily and quickly accessible. Because of the apartment’s central location, a lot of visitors leave their cars parked or don't even come to town by car at all.
The apartment is situated directly between the Berlin subway stations Kottbusser Tor and Görlitzer Bahnhof. Several subway lines, (night) busses and a taxi stand are also nearby. With the bus you can reach Checkpoint Charlie, Potsdamer Platz, the Bauhaus Museum, Kudamm and many other of Berlin’s tourist attractions, all quickly and directly.
The nearest motorway exit is located a few minutes away south of the apartment and is called Tempelhofer Dam (A100).
From Tegel airport, take bus 109 to the subway station Uhlandstrasse and change here to the subway line U1 (direction Warschauer Strasse). With this subway train travel to the station Görlitzer Bahnhof (travel time 47 minutes).
From Schönefeld airport take bus X7 to the subway station Rudow. From there take the line U7 (direction Spandau) to Hermannplatz. Here, change onto the subway line U8 (direction Oslo Strasse) and travel to Kottbusser Tor. Change here onto the line U1 and travel one station (direction Warschauer Strasse) to Görlitzer Bahnhof (travel time 43 minutes).
From Hauptbahnhof (central train station), take an east-bound S-Bahn (various lines) to Warschauer Strasse. Here, change onto the subway line U1 and travel until the station Görlitzer Bahnhof (travel time 24 minutes).

The apartment is in a great location, right in the middle "life"! It is perfectly adequate for a person in size and it was super clean. And the small balcony is ideal for decay to a Culture and Shopping.
A little tip: a few spare bulbs and batteries would be great.
Thank you and I'll be back.
Das Apartement ist super gelegen, mittendrin im "Leben" ! Es ist für eine Person absolut ausreichend in der Größe und es war super sauber. Und der kleine Balkon ist zum Ausklingen nach einem Kultur- und Shoppingtag ideal.
Kleiner Tipp : ein paar Ersatzglühbirnen und Batterien wären klasse.
Danke und ich komme wieder.
The apartment was ok, location great, but the coffee maker a disaster (because you could invest real time, is not that expensive) and less than 1.70 m, you should not be, because vanity and mirror are extremely high. Well, you do not look just one weeks time in the mirror ... All in all okay, but compared to other apartments a bit too expensive.
Die Wohnung war okay, die Lage super, aber die Kaffeemaschine eine Katastrophe (da könnte man echt mal investieren, ist so teuer nicht) und kleiner als 1,70 m darf man auch nicht sein, da Waschtisch und Spiegel extrem hoch sind. Na ja, guckt man halt eine Woche mal nicht in den Spiegel...Alles in allem okay, aber im Vergleich zu anderen Wohnungen etwas zu teuer.
Very nice Dg apartment overlooking television tower. Ideal for 2 people. Near Hackescher courtyards. Very clean and everything there, what woman would need. Martin very nice and uncomplicated. Recommended.
Sehr nette Dg Wohnung mit Blick auf Fernsehturmspitze. Ideal für 2 Personen. Nahe Hackesche Höfe. Sehr sauber und alles da, was Frau so braucht. Martin sehr nett und unkompliziert. Empfehlenswert.
In my review from last time is not much to add: again the apartment was as expected wunderbar.dazu came both flexible and generous attitude by Martin Wittke, who, as me I needed two extra nights - now an apartment in the same house (incidentally, better) offered!. Do not just between Christmas and New Year! Everything was done quickly and efficiently. Thank you to the owner and my recommendation to other guests: here Berlin becomes a home, Alice Hoffmann
Meiner Bewertung vom letzten Mal ist nicht viel hinzuzufügen: wieder war die Wohnung wie erwartet wunderbar.dazu kam die ebenso flexible wie großzügige Haltung von Martin Wittke, der mir -als ich noch zwei zusätzliche Übernachtungen brauchte - sofort eine Wohnung im selben Haus (übrigens noch besser!) anbot. Nicht einfach zwischen Weihnachten und Silvester! Alles konnte schnell und unbürokratisch erledigt werden. Vielen Dank an den Vermieter und meine Empfehlung an andere Gäste: hier wird Berlin zu einem zu Hause, Alice Hoffmann
