Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

--We are looking for exchanges in 2023--

Our home is a small suburban house, built about 100 years ago as a timber frame house, of which the beams can be seen from the inside. It has been enlargened twice, most recently in the 90s which added a big open living space in the ground floor, with loads of windows, which makes it flooded by light when the sun is out. And even on rainy days you feel like you are outside, with views of the garden all around.

Downstairs there is a open living room with a separate dining area and an open kitchen, as well as the master bedroom. Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a big bathroom with a built in sauna and a restroom with a bathtub and a heated louger leading out to a french balcony with a view over the back yard. There is a basement, where my desk, the washing machine and the wine cellar are to be found.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our home is located in a quiet suburb, in the middle of Tegel forest. On three sides there are lakes nearby, still you can reach the city center by train in about 30 minutes. The station is in walking distance. There are shops in walking distance. Still, it lays within Berlin's city borders and all of the vast cultural offer lays right ahead. The neighborhood itself consists mostly of family homes with gardens surrounding them.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Obviously Berlin is a city way to complex and difficult to explain in such small text box. In addition to the city though, there is Potsdam about an hour to the south with the beautiful Sanssouci park and castle. About an hour and a half to the south there is Spreewald, where the Spree river divides into a multitude of channels and arms. It's perfect for canoeing, wich is the best way to discover the traditional villages, some of which only can be reached by boat.
In the rural area around Berlin there is a very well maintained net of bike trails both for day trips and multi day tours.
Due to the excellent public transport everything is really accessible by train or bus (most by both).
