"As artists, we are interested in places and people that stimulate our creativity.
We are pleased to share our passion for Berlin with you.
Become our guests in our self-made work-in-progress flat in the day after day more popular and trendy area of Neukolln."
The apartment is just one block away from the former airport Tempelhof, now an enormous park with beergarden, barbecue area and lots of activity, which is becoming very popular among the Berliners. This is only one of the many attractions this flat offers. Another is surely the extreme good connection to all kinds of traffic.
The Airport Schönefeld, the new international airport in Berlin, is only 20min by Taxi. The next Highway Exit, Britzer Damm, is only 6 minutes by car. The next Subway is 5 minutes by foot. There you can get directly to Kreuzberg, Alexanderplatz, Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and and and...
Before 2009 the "LIRA 32" has been famous as THE place-to-be for parties and experimental projects. The front building was well-known as the “Flamingo Beach Lotel”, a project created by the artist Miss Marylou: every flat was decorated from floor to ceiling in barocco-kitsch style by several artists. The purpose was to offer an unforgettable arty experience for low-budget travellers. In memory of its glorious past, don’t forget to greet the couple of pink flamingos on your right side, in the main entrance hall!
In the first courtyard, take your time to admire the nice wall paintings called “Heissball” and " La vie en Rose" before climbing the stairs up to our flat in the third floor.
Our project was to made our flat as comfortable as possible without losing this “L32 spirit”: We kept the original wooden floor, made the bathroom bigger and the kitchen smaller before hanging our paintings, drawings and collages on the walls - everything in order to transform the flat in a living but peaceful gallery.
Our purpose is to give you the possibility of chilling out after a walking day in museums or a dancing night in clubs in this handmade, comfortable and sunny flat.
The brand-new bathroom with its italian-style shower is hidden in the yellow cube in the center of the flat.
We have designed a bank in the corner of the kitchen so you can sip a warm coffee (in winter) or a Iced coffee (in summer).
If you want to spend a day in our "Schiller-Kiez" with checking your emails, you have the choice between these three cafes which could quickly become your second living-rooms:
We recommend you the
- "Pappel Reihe" (Kienitzer Strasse 109) for a soup or a Panini at Midday,
- "Frollein Langner" (Weisestrasse 34) for a tea and a cookie in the afternoon,
- "Engels" (Herrfurthstrasse 21) for a concert with pastas,
- last but not least "Sowieso" (Weisestrasse 24) for a concert with a beer.
Enjoy your trip in Berlin!
All the best
Frédéric & Anne-Marie

Reviews for this host's other properties
Our hostess had not promised too much: We expected an apartment in a class of large, bright, newly renovated - bathrooms, stove, refrigerator, hardwood floors ... all the best! This much peace in the house and in the backyard. We enjoyed our stay, which also is thanks to our host, who was always accessible and approachable for us, if we so wished. Maybe (re) Kol (l) ner yes but a special breed of people? It was great! Thank you!
Unsere Gastgeberin hatte nicht zu viel versprochen: Uns erwartete eine Wohnung der Extraklasse: groß, hell, neu renoviert - Bad, Herd, Kühlschrank, Parkett ... alles vom Feinsten! Dazu viel Ruhe im Haus und auch im Hinterhof.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen, was auch unserer Gastgeberin zu verdanken ist, die für uns immer erreichbar und ansprechbar war, falls wir dies wünschten. Vielleicht sind (Neu-)Köl(l)ner ja doch ein besonderer Menschenschlag? Es war toll! Vielen Dank!
We were with our two children 17 and 20 years in this great big well kept house. In a lively area with small eateries and restaurants. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to stay still and keep quiet. Middle of the city 5 min walk from the immense temple park where it is gorgeous. And 5 min walk to the subway. Overall a great place, good bed, good food, nice house. Elisabeth & Ruurt
Wij waren met onze twee kinderen van 17 en 20 jaar in dit heerlijke grote goed verzorgde huis. In een gezellige buurt met kleine eethuisjes en restaurantjes. Een echte aanrader voor een ieder die van rust houd en toch midden in de stad wil verblijven. 5 min lopen van het inmense tempelhofpark waar het heerlijk vertoeven is. En 5 min lopen naar de metro. Kortom een geweldige plek, lekker bed, goede keuken, fijn huis. Elisabeth & Ruurt
Very nice stay. Big and cozy apartment to a very affordable price.
We, two children and my father in law, had a nice stay at Uschi. The apartment is close the at U Bahn station and to Tempelhof flybahn, which is a area where the children can run/bike and play and the adults can relax.
We, family of four, spent a week in this lovely and huge apartment. 2 bedrooms a large living room/kitchen combined and a spaceous bathroom. A wonderfull and tastefully decorated apartment. Don't be alarmed about the graffiti and the missing tiles in the hallway.. In the kitchen there is everything you could possibly want. And if you don't want to prepare meals yourself, there is plenty of ethnic restaurants and cafees, "just around the corner" if you want to go "downtown" Berlin, take the U Bahn Leinestrasse, and you will be at Alex in 10 minutes. Uschi is a very nice and flexible host, she didn't mind my late arrival. This is much better, cosier and more homely than any hotel room. I am very satisfied and I wish it was possibel to reward this apartment (and Uschi) with more than five stars
Uschi and Rainer are super hosts, totally flexible and ready to help! The apartment is absolutely great and the location is awesome! Thanks for everything!
Uschi und Rainer sind super Gastgeber, total flexibel und hilfebereit! Die Wohnung ist der absolute Hammer und auch die Lage ist genial! Vielen Dank für alles!
We spent 3 days with our two children (12 & 15 years old) spent in this very well equipped apartment. The kitchen is truly a dream - it's all there, and the rest of the house leaves much to be desired - everything was as described. The hosts are very nice and helpful and the subway within 5 minutes walking distance. This runs every 10 minutes, so you ... in a few minutes at Alexanderplatz, the Bundestag is. Parking in front of the house are also available and in 3 minutes you are in the vast park "Tempelhof freedom". From the outside view of the house, you should not be impressed - the apartment itself and the hosts are perfect.
Wir haben 3 Tage mit unseren beiden Kindern (12 u. 15 Jahre alt) in dieser sehr gut ausgestatteten Wohnung verbracht.
Die Küche ist wirklich ein Traum - es ist alles vorhanden und auch der Rest der Wohnung lässt keine Wünsche übrig - alles war wie beschrieben. Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und die U-Bahn in 5 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar. Diese fährt im 10 Minuten Takt, so dass man in wenigen Minuten am Alexanderplatz, Bundestag ... ist. Parkplätze vor dem Haus sind auch vorhanden und in 3 Minuten ist man im riesigen Park der "Tempelhofer Freiheit".
Von der Außenansicht des Hauses sollte man sich nicht beeindrucken lassen - die Wohnung selbst und die Gastgeber sind perfekt.
We spent 4 nights in this appartement with our 2 children, 6 and 9 years old. The appartment is huge, very convenient with 2 separate bedrooms, and extremely well equiped, specially the kitchen... Those who do not know Berlin should not be impressed by the tags outside the building and on the door ;) ; once in the appartment, you feel really at home, with maps of the city, city guides, WiFi access, etc. A very nice place, quiet, easy to park for free in front of the door, 5 mn walk from the subway which will lead you directly to Alexanderplatz. We highly recommand this nice appartment.
Very nice appartment in a quiet neighbourhood. It was easy to find the adress and it was possible to park outside the appartment. Lovely flat, and Templehof (park) within a short distance. 5 min walk to public transportation.
