Our flat is in a typical Berlin 'Altbauwohnung' (built in about 1900). There is one bedroom, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. It's our home, but we are happy to make it available to others in the spirit of the sharing economy. The flat is in Steglitz in south-west Berlin. It is in a quiet residential street but just two minutes from a major shopping street and UBahn station.
Steglitz is in the south-west of Berlin. It's a pleasant residential and shopping neighbourhood and not part of the city most frequented by tourists. The good U-Bahn and S-Bahn connections mean you can swiftly be in the centre of the city, but there are also many interesting places to visit in south-west Berlin and you have the chance to get to know a non-hipster part of the city. Some of the local places of interest include: the Botanical Gardens, the woods and lakes of the Gruewald, the Grunewald Jagdschloß museum (in the old royal hunting lodge and home to a collection of German Renaisance art), the Brücke Museum (a fine collection of expressionist paintings), the Allied Musuem (about the role of the western allies at the time of the cold war). There is also a good transport connection to Wannsee. The Wannsee Villa, venue of the infamous Wannsee Conference in 1942, is now an informative museum and memorial. In the same street is the Liebermann Villa, the summmer home of the impressionist painter Max Liebermann and now a museum with a collection of his work and beautiful gardens.
The flat is very close to Schloßstraße station on the U9 line and close to Rathaus Steglitz on S1 line.
