The house at Am Goslarer Platz dates back to 1911, a rarity in this land of new-builds, and it has all the features beloved of Altbau buildings: generously proportioned apartments, high ceilings, wooden floors and an elegant façade. Entering from Goslarer Platz 6, you are immediately welcomed by an atmospheric barrel vault and historic mosaic tiles. The building was renovated and modernised as recently as 2017/2018, melding classic style with modern convenience.
Surrounded by the River Spree and several canals, Mierendorff Island is a secret hidden in the middle of the city. Despite being surrounded by sophisticated Charlottenburg, only a little of that borough’s glamour can be felt here. Instead of luxury boutiques and champagne bars, this is an area of artisanal craftsmen and weekly farmers’ markets. Yet it is not completely cut off from the world around it; the many waterways are traversed by numerous bridges, and the island has its own subway station. Many of Charlottenburg’s highlights are located within comfortable walking distance; you can easily go for a jog through the gardens of Charlottenburg Palace, before an evening at the opera. The only limit is your appetite for discovery.
