The main shopping area in the city is located in Alexanderplatz (U/S-Bahn Alexanderplatz) although there are countless independent, boutique and niche stores in the city. On Sunday, all commercial outlets are closed except for bars, restaurants and clubs, so make sure to stock up on groceries on Saturdays.

Kreuzberg Apartments for Rent

One half of the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg duo, Kreuzberg is the West Berlin twin separated when the Wall went up in 1961, and now reunited since 1989. Expats and travellers looking for Berlin apartments for rent long term in this area should be forewarned: make coffee your friend because with all the goings-on about town, you’ll be hard pressed to find a moment of rest. Stocked to the brim with nightclubs, art galleries such as the Berlinische and street food galore, Kreuzberg is the perfect spot to live and play. It all starts with a thick underground punk scene with roots dating back to 1978 and that exists today in SO36, the legendary nightclub with a flair for alternative music and parties. On Tuesdays and Friday’s, Kreuzberg’s Turkish population comes alive as vendors erect the city’s largest Turkish market in the city along the canal. But if that's too energetic then you can always take a calming walk through Viktoriapark, Berlin’s highest point, with a 24 meter (artificial) waterfall and two fragrant vineyards.

Kreuzberg in bullet points

  • Görlitzer Park, packed during the summer and the venue for the infamous May Day celebration

Neukölln has plenty of open space and an abundance of charm, with renovated public parks, relaxing open-air bars and graffiti-covered cafes. Its residents are an eclectic mix of global citizens and it’s hard to find a more child and artist friendly neighbourhood in Berlin.Apartments for rent in Berlin, Neukölln, remain fairly reasonably priced and you can still find a bargain, despite the area's continued popularity.

Friedrichshain Apartments to Rent

Formerly a part of East Berlin, this youthful, happening neighbourhood is easily accessible and houses many middle-income residents and expats comfortably. It still retains a faint air of artistic activism and 20th century European intellectualism rife in its eclectic street bars and patios. Whilst Friedrichshain is a popular spot for student accommodation in Berlin, it’s also home to many young families and older residents who are involved within the arts. Irrepressibly expressive, residents of Friedrichshain happily restore and convert old industrial buildings into gallery spaces, loft living quarters and renovated co-working spaces. While there are several informal bars serving up cheap brews, several more well-maintained boutiques and cafes line the street. Friedrichshain is attractive to both tourists for its underground techno parties and residents exploring their own backyards. The area is close to the river Spree and is connected to Kreuzberg by the famous Oberbaumbrücke (Oberbaum Bridge). The East Side Gallery, featuring buildings preserved with intricate graffiti murals, is a particular draw.

Friedrichshain is home to Berlin’s (infamous) nightclub, Berghain, which each week draws thousands of locals and tourists to its techno parties. Flats to rent in Berlin, Friedrichshain are a mixture of Alt- and Neubau and many of the streets are pretty, treelined and graffitied. There's a food market every Saturday and a general market every Sunday on Boxhagener Platz. Although undergoing gentrification and its attractiveness to tourists, the area retains an identifiable character with its numerous independent shops, bars, restaurants and markets.

Mitte Apartments for Rent

From the “mitte” of Mitte — that is to say, from the “middle” of Mitte — rises the unmistakeable form of the Reichstag, the German parliament building. Given its central location, Mitte is home to luxury boutiques, galleries, Berlin’s central station (Hauptbahnhof) and the Tiergarten: Berlin’s 520 acre inner-city park that is a true ode to nature. Apartments for rent in Berlin within Mitte are very reasonable in residential areas such as Moabit and Wedding, with furnished apartments for rent closer to the ministry buildings generally more expensive. Because of its central location and Berlin’s healthy startup and tech sector, many of Mitte’s residents are young entrepreneurs, developers, international practicing artists and students. Berlin is considered the new startup capital of Europe and the majority of firms are located in Mitte, particularly around Rosenthalerstrasse and Schönhauser Allee. The area is known colloquially as 'Silicon Allee'. Humboldt University is in the area with more than 33,000 students. Given this youthful vibe together with the more serious governmental employees, Mitte is a sector whose bars, restaurants and shops can service both the trendy and the elegant.

Furnished apartments for rent in Berlin

Berlin’s rental market is extremely buoyant and it can be notoriously difficult to secure Berlin apartments for rent long term, as many people in the city only rent out their rooms or apartments from a few days to a couple of months. All of our properties are available for rent from the mid- to long-term. That means anywhere from three months to three years. Ask almost any newcomer to Berlin how many apartments they’ve lived in since arriving in the city and you’ll be surprised (possibly even shocked!) at the number. Finding flats to rent in Berlin long term can be a drawn out and stressful process. Competition for long term flats can be fierce. It’s customary for potential tenants to arrive at a viewing with all the required documents and even the full deposit. You’ll often have the pleasure of viewing the flat with countless other hopefuls (who will all probably have the correct documentation and funds as well). With Nestpick you can book Berlin apartments for rent long term up to four months in advance, entirely online from anywhere in the world. There are no viewings, no endless email exchanges. Finding fully furnished flats to rent long term just got a whole lot easier.

As the worlds of work and education become increasingly global, people are coming to expect to move into their new home without the hassle, or the expense, of having to furnish it themselves. We want to make your next move the easiest ever; think of the time and money you’ll save by not spending hour upon hour in IKEA.

What exactly constitutes our furnished apartments to rent in Berlin? The basics that we expect from landlords are a bed, a desk, seating and an adequate amount of storage. However, the majority of our apartments are more comprehensively furnished. For our flats to achieve ‘verified’ status, the flat must include at least the above items.

Berlin flats don’t have an identifiable style but are generally divided between Altbau (old building) and Neubau (new buildings). The former tend to come with high ceilings, wooden floors and original features, the latter are generally post-war blocks of good proportions with a utilitarian style.


Gay-friendly neighborhoods in Berlin

Berlin has always been a very progressive city, and the gay scene has been very active since the beginning of the 20th century. If you are looking for a gay-friendly environment to live in, Berlin is definitely a top pick. Read more about it in our article about the gay scene in Berlin per area: you will see that every Kiez has something for you.



Finding Student Accommodation in Berlin

Berlin has five public universities: Humboldt Universität, Freie Universität, Universität der Künste, Potsdam Universität and the Technische Universität.

Finding a place to live in Berlin as a student can seem overwhelming, with so many factors to bear in mind. You probably want somewhere affordable, close to the university, located in a lively area... the list goes on and on!

Many students in Berlin live in "Studentenwohnheime" (student housing) provided by their university. While these are good short-term options, most students choose to move to a "WG" ( shared flat) at some point, as it opens up more possibilities in terms of space and location. These student apartments are also a perfect way to make friends in a new city and mix with the locals. If you would rather live on your own, another possibility is to find a short term rental in a studio. Either way, short term rents are very easy to find and typically don't require a lot of paperwork.

Whatever you think is best for you, we have all of these options on Nestpick, so that you can pick and choose from the largest possible selection.


Looking for a Studio Apartment as a Student in Berlin: What You Need to Know

Short and medium term rentals will be the easiest to arrange as student arriving fresh in the city. The paperwork and financial requirements will differ depending on the agency you use, but usually a copy of your student ID will be required, as well as a copy of your scholarship certificate if you have one. If you are doing an internship in Berlin, a copy of your contract is commonly needed.


An Easier Option for Students: Shared Student Flats

If you are looking to rent a room in a shared apartment, often it will be the current flatmates who make the decision about whether or not you get the room, rather than the landlord. Make sure to sign a contract (Untermietvertrag), and that it mentions the security deposit, to make your stay official.


Humboldt University

This university has 3 campuses, located in different areas of Berlin.


Free University

This University has several campuses, but as an international student you are likely to end up in Campus Dalhem (Philosophy, Social Sciences, History and Culture). Located outside of the city center, in the South West of Berlin, you can access it with the U3 line. The district of Charlottenburg is the closest option, but if you are looking for a “cooler” neighbourhood, Kreuzberg (around the U1 line) and Neukölln (close to the Ringbahn) are also good options.


Technical University of the Arts (UdK)

These universities have their campuses on the same area in Charlottenburg, in the western part of the city. Both are easily accessible with U-Bahn line U2, but you can also walk from the station Zoologischer garten where the S5, S7 and S75 lines run, as well as the U1 and U9 lines.

Many students choose to live in Moabit, located a bit further north, where rents are on average more affordable than in Charlottenburg. From there, as with many places in Berlin, the best transportation is a bike.


University of Potsdam

Like the name suggests, the university has its campuses in the city of Potsdam, on the outskirts of Berlin. You can choose to live in a student dorm directly around the University, but if you want to experience the Berlin lifestyle, travelling from Berlin to Potsdam takes about 40 minutes with the regional train RB20 or RB21. If you wish to minimise your commuting time, rent a room around one of the stations - the area around Berlin Hauptbahnhof has affordable flats that are ideal.
