Apartments close to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin
Berlin is one of the most sought out destinations all year round and even more attractive for visitors at Christmas, if possible, for all the reasons we have previously mentioned in our Christmas series. Because, who doesn’t feel like some hot Glühwein (mulled wine) in one of their many Christmas markets in the middle of really cold weather and some unrivalled Christmas decorations and lights? It is also very popular thanks to its nightlife, its endless number of restaurants of all kinds, and of course its authentic cultural and intellectual lifestyle.
If anything springs to mind when we think of Berlin, it is the Brandenburg Gate. Built between 1788 and 1791, this architectural element symbolises the entrance of the “new Berlin” and many of the city’s historical and determining events have taken place in its surroundings. Situated on Paris Square, it stands between the famous Tiergarten Park and Strasse des 17, Juni Avenue, as well as the majestic Unter den Linden avenue (literally meaning under the lime tree), one of the city’s core locations, meeting places, and recreation centres with numerous institutions, and cultural and tourist sites such as the famous Berlin State Opera House which unites the Museum Island, and centre East Berlin.
To enjoy the most authentic Berlin there is nothing better than staying in an apartment situated in the heart of the historic area and better still if it is located near theBrandenburg Gate, so you can take advantage of the cultural and university atmosphere that graces the Unter den Linden avenue. In addition, is it easy to get around the most interesting points of the city, such as the green lung of Berlin, the Tiergarten Park, the modern Potsdamer Platz, and the artistically rich Museum Island, as well as the central Alexander Platz from there.
If you fancy being a part of all the action in Berlin then the Gendarmenmarkt I, II, III, IV, and V are your ideal choice of apartments to stay in. They are situated right in the heart of the Mitte district, a few metres away from the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden, and the Französische Strasse station. From there you can wander to other districts and corners of Berlin on foot, or take the underground. With three bedrooms the Gendarmenmarkt apartment II is prefect for visiting Berlin with your family or friends, given that there is room for up to 7 people. It is a modern and well-lit apartment thanks to its large Berlin windows, with parquet flooring, a spacious and well-equipped kitchen, and a huge bathroom that will make you feel quite at home but without losing a hint of the Berlin feel.
If you prefer to visit the German capital in a petit comité, or are visiting with your partner, the Gendarmenmarkt III, IV, and V apartments, located in the same building and which have practically the same features as the GendarmenmarktI, and II apartments are the perfect choice for you. They only have one bedroom but they have sufficient room for more than two people thanks to the spacious salons with a sofa bed in each one. Finally, just like the Gendarmenmarkts I and II, they provide the maximum comfort, and are cosy and pleasant apartments, the best in Berlin accommodation, and the best that Friendly Rentals has to offer.
This is thus an incredible opportunity to enjoy the most peaceful, authentic and historic side of Berlin, in one of these apartments perfectly located close to the Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island, which will make Berlin appear even more attractive to visit and guarantee that you spend even more enjoyable holidays there, if possible.>
