The apartment is located only 3 minutes walking distance form eberswalder street underground station and only two stations away from berlin's city centre. You may want to take a beautiful walk through kastanienalle into the centre and skip the trains. Right as you come out of the apartment you will encounter countless pubs, restaurants, cafés, galleries and little shops, which create a day and nightlife atmosphere unique from the rest of berlin. Prenzlauer berg is a focal point of the berlin art scene.
Prenzlauer berg is one of the most popular districts in Berlin, is one of Berlin's prettiest neighborhoods and still central, yet quieter than berlin mitte. Much of prenzlauer berg escaped damage in the second world war and post war redevelopment. Nowadays prenzlauer berg offers trendy shopping with many streetstyle fashion designers selling their wares in trendy boutiques.
Kollwitzplatz and helmholtzplatz (1 and 2 blocks away) have weekly street markets, and the former breweries kulturbrauerei, pfefferberg and kastanienallee are the hot spots of interest.
Prenzlauer berg has recently become a popular area for the current wave of american and european immigrants into berlin, many of whom are artists who have moved to berlin in search of the cheap downtown apartments and studio space which are very hard to find in other capital cities and 'centres for the arts' like New York, London and Paris but which are abundant in berlin. Conversations in english can often be heard in the street cafes along the kastanienallee.
