Discover the irresistible zest, sophistication and bourgeois charm of Berlin’s most elegant neighborhood. Experience Berlin’s pre-war modernist roots by enjoying a comfortable stay in this celebrated early 20th century modernistic architecture icon.

The space
This beautiful apartment consists of an ample naturally lit living room that includes an entry hall and an open kitchen, a separate bedroom and a comfortable bathroom. The apartment is centrally located at the very heart of Wilmersdorf on the Ku'damm, in a very quiet and charming modernistic International style building designed by famed architect Erich Mendelsohn in the late 1920's. Both the building and the apartment were recently renovated while maintaining their original spirit. The renovation took extra care to preserve the building and the apartment’s origins, including the exposed innovative metal stress bars, that can be seen arching across the living room.

The apartment benefits from an unobstructed view, towering over a green and tranquil surrounding. Transportation is as easy as it gets with immediate access to the u-bahn, s-bahn and bus systems. Going up to the 5th floor is made easy with a modernized original 1920’s elevator.

Filled with museums, theatres, gardens, cafes, art galleries, book stores, high fashion stores and fine dining establishments, Charlottenburg-Wilmerdorf is stylistic and sophisticated. Strolling the small streets to both sides of the Kudamm is not only pleasing and aesthetic, it allows visitors to experience and capture the artistic, intellectual and bourgeois spirit of pre-war and current Berlin, better than any other part of the city. You can literally feel the beat that drove cultural life in this city in-between the wars, still beating today.

The apartment includes:
* bedroom with a double king bed, a large built-in closet and a 1950’s precision scale
* spacey living room with open views and an open kitchen
* bathroom with a modern shower
* washing machine & dryer
* fully equipped kitchen with microwave, stove, refrigerator & dishwasher
* living room with sofa, armchairs, café table and a dining table
* free wireless internet
* 4K wide screen smart tv
* DVD
* elevator

A bit of history: This architectural landmark, was planned by the iconic Jewish German architect Erich Mendelsohn. The project includes the Schaubuhne theater (originally Universum, the world’s first modern cinema) and two adjourning residential buildings. The complex is listed under severe preservation code aimed at protecting its heritage and unique characteristics.

While in Berlin, we strongly recommend taking a day trip (by train or bicycle) to Potsdam to see Mendelsohn's highly influential architectural masterpiece - the Einstein tower, an astrophysical observatory built in 1919-21.

Our building was home to Walter Jurmann, a notable composer who, among others, composed the music to the Marx brothers famous film "A Day At The Races" (1937).
