Directly on the banks of Berlin's River Spree, dreamy, tranquil location with fabulous river & parkland views with majestic trees, yet within 10 min. drive to the Alexander Platz. And from there to the centre of the city with Brandenburger Gate, the Reichstag and the famous boulevard 'Unter den Linden,' Charlottenburg Palace, the Museum Island etc. and yet only a 5 min drive from the remnants of the Berlin Wall. Treptow Park across the river is ideal for biking, jogging, walking, fly-fishing and of course boating on the river & nearby lakes. The famous Zenner Biergarten is easily accessible. Treptow Park Center has a comprehensive selection of shops, banking and a post office, along with many eating opportunities. Take-away food is plentiful in and around the Treptow Park S-train station and the shopping center. Although ours is a peaceful residential location you don't have to go far to experience everything Berlin has to offer.
