The city district of Prenzlauer Berg was once known for its working class people and talented artisans. In 1920, Prenzlauer Berg officially became part of the city of Berlin and it was called Prenzlauer Tor. The added borough contributed roughly three hundred thousand German citizens to Berlin’s population. A year later, the Prenzlauer Berg was born, and it has been a traveler’s destination ever since.
Prenzlauer Berg has an area of eleven square kilometers, and a thriving population of 160,000 inhabitants. With the tall buildings stabbing into the summer sky, the panoramic view of Berlin in the summer leaves many wondering why there are not more people. In your apartment it's nice to have a street (Stargarder Strasse) that can be walked down without pushing and shoving.
When strolling through the Prenzlauer Berg you will see fantastic images of both new and old, through art and commerce. The French Quarter area of Prenzlauer Berg on Oderberger Strabe, was developed after the German French war of 1871, and is situated between Schönhauser Alee and Prenzlauer Alee. The beautiful streets can be easily recognized, as they have been named for places in France such as Metz, Mulhausen and Kolmar.
World War II saw extensive bombing in the city of Berlin. with many of the buildings destroyed, a rebuilding effort began in 1945. Through hard work and a determined national pride, the Germans, most specifically the Berliners, worked insatiably until the town was rebuilt.
For you it's nothing more exciting and enriching than visiting a section of a city with so much history. Although the history was very traumatic with the bombings from the allies at the end of World War II, it is nonetheless history, and it's great to learn about Berlin and the effects of the war on this great city.
The entire area is alive with history, as every street that you turn down offers another insight into the spirit of European togetherness as there are Prussians, French, Danish and Norwegian street names all throughout Prenzlauer Berg. This makes Prenzlauer Berg one of the most interesting and vibrant places for a traveler of any in Berlin.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Cozy place, good location.
At first I worried, as I saw a lot of negative comments about WIMDU and I had already paid. However, I was very positively surprised and quickly put at ease:
The responses from the website were prompt and professional. The apartment was clean and the interaction with Martin was excellent. Pick up of the keys was friendly and professional. The apartment had everything I needed and was in good order. Location is ideal; very central to public transport, cafe's, shops. The apartment quiet and around the corner there is action, if that is what you like.
One minor matter, which is why I give it 4 stars and not 5 (I think 4.5 stars is realistic): The blinds on one window (shower+ toilet) needs replacing. The rest of the apartment is in excellent shape. I can highly recommend Martin and the apartment.
The apartment was in a great location, near food shopping, etc and near the transportation network - S - Bahn.
We had what we need for the week's stay. Shower head needs a small repair and we were not able to turn on TV--but maybe that was our problem.
Heike met us and was very helpful in assisting us with baggage when we arrived and when we left.

We spent 7 nights in the apartment. The location is superb (not in the center, but nice and quiet neighborhood). Gabi was so kind and gave us the keys, even when we got there a bit late. Supermarket, U and S stations and bus, literally 1 min walking. The apartment is spacious for 2 people, clean, and with all the amenities you can need, including extra towels and sheets. The kitchen is big enough to eat in there, and very clean. Bathroom small but enough to feel confortable. The only bad thing I would say about the apartment is that the mattress is old and not so confortable (but we survived). No problems with the wifi and hot water. I would repeat without doubt...but more happily if they change the mattress.....XD
The apartment is great, big, clean and very good situated. Check in/out was very easy.
