Apartments for short stays in Berlin
Berlin is packed with visitors year-round, but it can be especially cumbersome to book a room in summer, during Oktoberfest, Christmas, New Year’s, and Easter weekend. To rent an apartment in Berlin instead of a hotel room may prove a convenient and money-saving alternative, if you are staying longer and travelling with companions.
By choosing apartment accommodation in Berlin, you get a completely autonomous home with all the comforts and advantages of independent living. Apartments in Berlin are self-catering, so you can cook and make tea or coffee if you do not feel like dining out.
If you are about to travel with family or friends, apartment accommodation comes in handy, because renting a 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartment in Berlin is much easier than booking several hotel rooms, not to mention that it is much cheaper. Not only will you stay in a comfortable setting, but also you will be able to spend quality time together without necessarily having to go out.
The wide variety of apartments available in Berlin, especially in the central district Mitte, makes it easy to find a perfect apartment that suits you just right. Most of the apartments are close to major attractions and sites of Berlin which makes sightseeing a breeze.
Sweet Home Abroad also offers apartment, cottage and villa short-term rentals all over Europe and North America.

Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate, or Brandenburg Tor in German, is a tangle of historical triumphs and tragedies, misunderstood messages and missing statues. It was originally constructed in 1791 with a very peaceful purpose – to symbolize peace itself. For that reason the statue of the Goddess of Peace was put on top of it along with the God of War Mars shown sheathing his sword. The ensemble was later taken to Paris by Napoleon and stayed there for seven years, but was returned to crown the Brandenburg Gate again when Prussians (for the gate was the symbol of Prussian Germany at the time) defeated Bonaparte in 1813. The Goddess of Peace then became the Goddess of Victory.

In the 20th century in the Nazi Germany the Brandenburg Gate was turned into a symbol of something completely opposite to the original message: it stood for aggressive triumph and later for the division of Berlin into two – West and East. On the historic day of November 9, 1989, after two and a half decades of standing unused and practically abandoned, the Brandenburg Gate was flooded with happy crowds coming through and to and fro in now united city. The Room of Silence, built into the gate, is dedicated to its original message of peace in Berlin.
