My apartment is in Berlin-Wedding, a nice area nearby the canal and close to the Ring-Bahn. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to discover. You can take the bus 142 and have a tiny sightseeing tour and pass the central station, Berlin-Mitte and in the end take photographs from the East Side Gallery!
Sidenotes: I just moved in the flat, so there are still many moving boxes in the living room but they are stacked. You will also hear the church from time to time. Smoking only on the balcony.
