A big cosy couch and a well equiped kitchen may want u stay inside, but Friedrichshain's parks, comfy cafes, bars, restaurants, clubs & small shops offer u Berlin at its best. Plus: Discover the city by various Trams, S&U-Bahn from around the corner.
S- and U-Bahn Warschauer Straße (U1, S5&7), U-Bahn Frankfurter Tor (U5), S-Bahn Ostbahnhof (several regional trains and ICE) and M10 (tram to Prenzlauer Berg) are all in 5-12 min walking distance and bring you everywhere in town.
I don't recommend going around Berlin by car. Parking is expensive nearly everywhere and the public transport so great. Alternative: get bikes for 8-10€/day in a close bike-shop or a "Spätkauf" (small late night shops).
Find free parking everywhere in the neighbourhood north of Frankfurter Allee (400m from my place):
- Please keep the wooden counter in the kitchen dry at ALL TIME!
- Please take care of the plants in the flat. I will tell or send you instructions
- no parties, no loud music after 22h; there are a lot of children living in the building and my neighbours still like me untill now ;)
