Large Flat in Berlin-Mitte, Germany

Our appartment is right in the middle of Berlin-Mitte, but very quite, close to the New National Gallery and Potsdamer Platz, Winterfeld Market, Schöneberg's gay quarter and  the Tiergarten (nice for jogging and biking). It is also only a short walk or bike ride to the Philharmony, the Brandenburg Gate, The Bauhaus Archive, Berlin's Technology Museum, the Embassy Quarter and the House of World Cultures. The spacious, lovingly renovated flat (200 m²) is on the second floor of a house from the 1860s, with wooden floors, high ceilings and stucco, tile stoves and huge windows. It offers  four bedrooms,, an open "living-in"-kitchen, a living room with piano and guitar, two offices, two bathrooms and a balcony.
We are a family of four (Robin working as  translator and psychoanalyst; Michi as anthropologist), a studying son (22), a daugter (17), and a black cat named Tony (who need to be taken care of if you live at our place).
There is plenty of history, culture, design, globalisation  and experimental ways of living to explore in Berlin and you do not need a car to do this: we can lend 4 bikes. Public transport (subways no 1,2,3 and many busses) are only a 4 minutes walk.  Cafes and restaurants are close by. You can also use our Peugot  407 to explore Berlin's surroundings, for example the beautiful Uckermark and the Feldberger Seenplatte. The Baltic Sea is a three hours drive away.

We are always interested in long weekend-city breaks (esp. Amsterdam, Neapel, Palermo, )
and look specifically for exchanges during the following periods

October 27 - November 3, 2017: Amsterdam
February / March, 2018: Neapel, Sicily, Southern Italy
August, September October 2018: New york City,
