As a French poet living in Berlin, I also move a lot and love to share this space of mine in this inspiring city with other fellow travelers when I am not around.
The apartment is a one room flat of 33m2.
The corridor leads to a spacious bedroom, a separate kitchen with a window and a glass door opening to the balcony, and a bathroom (shower) with a nice natural light.
It is located on the 3d and last floor of a small building from the 20's, in a cute small residential street from the same period.
Very bright, it is all West orientated, and from 12 h on the sun shows up above the roofs and the trees, until sunset.
It has a very warm and simple atmosphere, with nice bright wooden floors.
The building nestles on its East side in a group of gardens where stands the bicycle shed, as well as pine trees, fruit trees and a children playground.
The whole neighbourhood is extremely quiet.
The flat is furnished for two, the kitchen has a fridge and a gas cooker, pots and pans, and bed and bath linen are provided.
The flat has WLAN, but sometimes it is not working so well.
Located between Schöneberg, Kreuzberg and Neukölln, Tempelhof, with a village spirit, is very green and quiet.
Shops, cafés and bakeries, including the ecological bakery, café and cultural space UFA Fabrik, can all be found in the neigbourhood.
There you can also find the former airport of Tempelhof, one of the Berliners' new favourite place. 5 mn by bike, and 15 mn within a walking distance from the flat, this local Central Park lets explode all the inhabitants' imagination : skite surf, rollers, and even wind surfing, but also kite, picnics, gardeners, sunset watchers, tightrope walkers, tango dancers... in a setting steeped in history.
From there you can also catch the S-Bahn, the comfortable and practical Berlin's aerial metro, that takes you round the city and to lakes, forests and other Sans-Soucis Park in Potsdam.
The regular metro line 6 easily leads from station Alt-Tempelhof (10 minutes walk from the flat, through the Bose Park for example) to the centre of the city, in Mitte.
Kreuzberg and its lively Bergmannstraße is only 4 stations away, or 20 minutes by bike. The milling, "multi-kulti" and hip life of Neukölln awaits for you just the other side of the former airport park.
Schöneberg's city hall is only 20mn away with the bus M46.
The connections from train stations and airports are easy : one S-Bahn station only from Südkreuz, 50 minutes from Tegel and Schönefeld (direct S-Bahn every 20 minutes).
I am a French writer, translator and artist of 40 years old. I moved to Berlin in 2009 and found there the perfect city for me. I am very happy to welcome people from all over the world in this flat that I wanted both simple and warm.
