Berlin Flat No 18
Friedrichshain, the district of Berlin in which this Berlin holiday flat is located, is a very fashionable and trendy neighbourhood full of young people. The apartment is located on a quiet street close to Karl-Marx-Allee.
There are various parks that are not too far away such as Blankensteinpark and Volkspark Friedrichshain. In the middle of the park Volkspark Friedrichshain you will also find an open air cinema where you can enjoy a variety of films surrounded by trees and nature.
Using the excellent Berlin transport system you can also be in the centre of the city in a matter of minutes. Travel to Alexanderplatz to enjoy the view from the top of the television tower and check the time on the World Clock. From here there are many transport connections to all parts of the city. Travel to Mauerpark and take part in the Bearpit Karaoke on a Sunday and show off your musical talents! Afterwards you can stroll through the market and buy some typical German food from one of the many cafés or refreshment stands.
Take the train to Checkpoint Charlie to learn about the separation of Berlin and the various attempts to escape from the East to the West. Wander along the old Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery to admire the artwork of about 100 artists. Get your photo taken at the Brandenburg Gate with one of the many unusual street performers and human statues.
