Apartments in Berlin

A holiday apartment in the city


Every year, Germany's capital Berlin accommodates over 2.5 million tourists from all over the world who stay in holiday resorts of all price categories. You have the choice between an apartment in the city or a classic holiday apartment outside the city centre. The range of modernly furnished accommodation is particularly extensive in the centre around Alexanderplatz on the right bank of the Spree and along the western bank of the Spree.
If you want to save money, you can cook in the fully equipped kitchen of the apartment. WLAN is also usually available free of charge. From your apartment in the lively centre of Berlin you can reach many of the sights on foot and, thanks to short distances, immerse yourself in the pulsating nightlife.

Apartments at Berlin's green lung

If you would like to pitch your tents away from the city centre on the outskirts, a holiday apartment in a quiet location, such as near the Berlin zoo in Friedrichsfelde or in Niederschönhausen, is a good choice. A vacation rental west of the Olympic Stadium on the picturesque banks of the Havel, Wannsee or nearby Tegeler See also promises relaxation in the countryside. Despite the green idyll, all these starting points offer excellent transport connections to the sights, bars and restaurants of the city centre, especially as the next stop of the well-developed bus, S-Bahn and underground network is usually only a few minutes' walk away from your modern accommodation. Especially families with children like to choose a holiday accommodation in the countryside.

Location and orientation

Spatial structure of Berlin

The city of Berlin is surrounded by the federal state of Brandenburg in the northeast of Germany and covers an area of 892 square kilometers. Berlin is divided into the twelve districts of Reinickendorf, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Spandau, Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, Neukölln, Treptow-Köpenick, Pankow, Charlottenburg, Lichtenberg and Mitte, which in turn are divided into 96 districts. Berlin is characterised by the flow of the Spree and Havel rivers and the adjoining floodplains and lakes, which open up the cityscape spatially and distinguish it from other metropolises with densely built-up areas.

Locomotion on site


If you live in a quarter in the city, you can leave your own car at the train station, at the airport or right in front of your doorstep. Despite the spaciousness, you can reach any point in the city within a short time with one of the 15 S-Bahn, 22 U-Bahn or 150 bus lines. Alternatively, you can also use the five ferry connections to explore the federal capital from the water.
If you live in the suburbs or are planning a trip to the surrounding area, you can alternatively rent a car from one of the major car rental companies or take advantage of the well-developed car sharing offer. For journeys in the often congested city centre, however, you should fall back on the experience of the Berlin taxi drivers in order to reach your destination quickly.

Travelers and Activities

Berlin for people interested in history

History has left numerous traces in Berlin, which culture lovers can discover in the city's numerous museums and historic buildings. The Museum Island in the middle of the River Spree is a particular tourist magnet, with the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Pergamonmuseum with its numerous antique exhibits such as the bust of Nefertiti, among others. Berlin is also home to a number of buildings from Prussian times, the interior of which shines with baroque splendour. However, the scars of the Second World War and the division of Germany have not been forgotten in Berlin either, as the Holocaust Memorial and the remains of the Berlin Wall prove.

Berlin for night owls

Due to its diversified club scene, Berlin has been regarded since the 1990s as a particularly hip city, especially by young guests, offering something for every taste. The spectrum ranges from quaint pubs on Wrangelkiez in Kreuzberg to cosy bars in Friedrichshain and noble lounges on Potsdamer Platz and Unter den Linden. Dance enthusiasts are drawn to electro clubs like Watergate, Katerholzig or the Week-end in Berlin Mitte. Friends of harder sounds, on the other hand, feel at home in the Sage-Club and the Dunckerclub on Prenzlauer-Berg with their rock music. If you want to enjoy a cosy meal, there is a large selection of restaurants on Kurfürstendamm and Hackescher Markt, Southeast Asian snack bars in Wilmersdorf and especially hip places in Berlin-Mitte.

1st Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate on Pariser Platz is Berlin's landmark and at the same time a memorial to German history, which you should definitely visit during your holiday in Berlin. During a guided tour through the city you will learn interesting things about the building and get to know the meditation room in the northern Torhaus, which is modelled on the Room of Silence in the UNO Building in New York City.

2nd Berlin from a bird's eye view

With a height of 368 metres, the Berlin TV Tower on Alexanderplatz is the tallest building in Germany and at the same time one of Berlin's most popular sights. In the Turmrestaurant, which can be reached by lift, you can enjoy a good lunch, a glass of wine or a café while enjoying the breathtaking panoramic view from the highest publicly accessible vantage point in Germany. When the weather is clear, you can not only see the entire city from the viewing platform, but also the Tropical Islands leisure pool 70 kilometres away.

3. Shopping in the KaDeWe

For those who come to Berlin for shopping, there is no way past the Kaufhaus des Westens, or KaDeWe for short. Opened for the first time in 1907, the shopping centre has an upscale assortment and is therefore ideally suited for the procurement of very special souvenirs. On the 60,000 square metre sales area of the largest department store in Europe, you will find everything from art objects to designer clothing to a huge selection of delicatessen in the so-called gourmet floor.

4. Visiting the Reichstag

The Reichstag in Berlin is Germany's monument to power and since 1999 has again been the seat of the Bundestag. Explore the spacious building and take part in a guided tour that takes guests through the underground visitor centre up to the glass dome. If you have always wanted to look over the shoulder of politics, you can do so from the gallery in the dome as you follow the debates in the Chamber.

5. The house at checkpoint Charlie

In the Wall Museum, in the so-called Haus am Checkpoint Charlie, not far from your vacation rental in the centre, you will be taken back to the time of the Iron Curtain and visit the border fortifications including the world-famous checkpoint. The exhibits also include countless flight props that tell of the adventurous and often fatal attempts to escape the GDR. Checkpoint Charlie is also an exciting sight for children.
