As a rule, I can be contacted at any time, as I am an independent coach and consultant working primarily from home in my own office (2nd floor left). More ⇢Host.
Various information about all possible needs of daily life and also special situations can be found in this room folder.
For all other needs, wishes, questions etc. please contact me. Also in order to better meet your expectations, I am happy to receive suggestions and feedback from you in the spirit of “kaizen”, i.e. the principle of continuous improvement.
To all residents of the house, ie the guests of the room on the 2nd floor, me and my daughter Fatima “April” like son Ilyas Jason (only temporarily present) and the Scottish fold cat “Teddy”, a harmonious and relaxed coexistence, I ask you to comply with the few ⇢House rules. Thank you very much!
I wish you a productive and at the same time relaxing stay!
To reach Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER) by car/taxi takes about 30 minutes during normal traffic hours. By ⇢public transport, you should allow a good hour. As a rule, take the M11/X11 bus (from the “Stanzer Zeile” stop, about a 4-minute walk) to the “Lichterfeld-Ost” train station. For domestic flights you should check in one hour before, for international flights two hours before.
There is a phone on the kitchen counter or you can use your cell phone.

It is best to let me know the day before what kind of breakfast you want, also what kind of coffee or tea and also where you want to dine (kitchen counter, dining table, garden table on the terrace). However, I am unfortunately not allowed to issue a separate invoice for this, if it can also be included in the room rate and thus the total price appears on the invoice.
Alternatively, you can prepare your own breakfast with your own ingredients in your room or in the kitchen.

You’ll find it in the cutlery tray under the Smoothie mixer.
Carbon monoxide detector
For your safety, a carbon monoxide detector (Gloria K2D) is located in the entrance area to the right of the passage to the living room. In case of a too high concentration carbon monoxide in the air, the red LED is on and you can hear an alarm (4 beeps – break – 4 beeps).
Carbon monoxide, or carbon monoxide (CO) for short, is produced during the incomplete combustion of fuels containing carbon – in heating systems, during barbecues or even in shisha bars. Carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to significant health complaints, unconsciousness and even death. For example, in 2016 died 640 people in Germany alone due to carbon monoxide poisining. Typical symptoms of CO poisoning include visual disturbances, dizziness, severe headache, confusion, chills and nausea.
The probability of a high carbon monoxide concentration here due to the chimney and the heating system is extremely low: Both are checked and maintained annually by the respective professionals.
What to do in case of an alarm:
- Alert the ⇢host and all other persons in the house!
- Open all windows and doors!
- Leave the house with your mobile phone!
- Call 112!
- Inform the neighbors!
If the red LED flashes every 60 seconds accompanied by a tweet sound, the battery needs to be exchanged. This should theoretically happen in about ten years (as of January 2022).

The welcome cookies, which you will find at the beginning of your visit and at the reception / kitchen, are baked by myself from spelt flour and of course free for you. Other ingredients as well as the shapes (see below) I always vary a little.
The shape of the “little traffic light man” (Ampelmännchen) took on symbolic character for Berlin after the fall of the Wall, as they differed from the West German standard and were also perky and charming. The machinist, technical draftsman and psychologist Karl Beklau had successfully submitted his designs in 1961 (assisted by his secretary Anneliese Wegner). After the reunification, the designer Markus Heckhausen from Tübingen “rescued” the figures from building yards etc.. They were to be replaced by West German standards. Thus they became a symbol against “unreasonable post-reunification mentality” (Peglau). Heckhausen founded the Ampelmann company in 1995 and now sells the cult figures in all types and shapes. A book (Ampelmann. From traffic sign to cult figure.) has also been published. You can find it in the living room above the couch.
The Berlin TV tower was built between 1965 and 1969 at the instigation of the then GDR head of state Walter Ulbricht. When it was inaugurated, a light reflection on the sphere, which then formed a cross, led to mocking names such as “Pope’s Revenge” and “Saint Walter”. Today it is one of the most popular tourist destinations with 1.2 million visitors annually.
The Old Fritz or Frederick II “the Great” (1712-1786) continued his father’s commitment to Prussia’s greatness and is still effective today through his foresight, tolerance as well as love for the philosophy of the Enlightenment.
The Brandenburg Gate was built by the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II between 1788 and 1791 according to plans by the architect Carl Gotthard Langhans as a dignified end to the boulevard Unter den Linden. The quadriga on the roof was created by the sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow. Due to its location just behind the Berlin Wall (on the eastern side) and visible from the west, the monument became a symbol of the German division and subsequently a symbol of a reunited Germany.
A corkscrew is located in the cutlery tray under the smoothie blender.

In addition, in exceptional cases, I will knock on your room door.

My daughter “April” designed the signs.

Your bedspread (four-season duvet Fjällbräcka by IKEA) made of duck feathers and down in cotton consists of two blankets: a light summer and a thicker, warmer.

The public transport system in Berlin comes right up to our front door. The bus stop “Oberhofer Weg” is served by the buses of line 112. A little further away (about 4 min walk) is the bus stop “Stanzer Zeile”, where the buses of the lines M11 and X11 run. Via the nearby train station “Lichterfelde-Ost” you can reach practically all other destinations in and around the capital.
Admittedly: Compared to ticket systems in other cities, Berlin’s fare system is so complicated that even controllers don’t always have an overview. We are here in zone B. If you don’t want to leave Berlin (e.g. trip to Potsdam or airport BER = zone C), then always take a ticket AB. If you plan three trips or more, take a day ticket. If you are staying longer, then a weekly or monthly ticket. If you purchase the ticket in the BVG app (see below), you always have it with you and cannot lose it.
To get around Berlin’s public transportation system, we recommend using three apps – just the way you like it:
- BVG – the official app of the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe incl. online ticket purchase,
- Google Maps – the universal classic is also designed for bus and train use,
- Öffi – Android App and Timetable information made easier and more manageable.

A stay in a salt cave helps to leave stress and everyday life behind. The grottos are places of deceleration. The medical benefits are controversial; after all, the concentration is too low compared to inhaling salt solutions. In any case, health insurance companies do not pay for it. But for centuries, people in need of relaxation have sought out the sea to alleviate or even cure skin and respiratory diseases. The salt cave in the Jadehaus Lichterfelde (Jägerstr. 16A, 12209 Berlin, 15 min walk) is open as follows: Tue–Fri 16:00-20:00, Sat 10:00-19:00. +49 30 76 58 03 53.

In your room, a small trash can (10l) is waiting to be fed under the smoothie blender. A wastebasket is under the desk. In the bathroom, there is a pedal bin to the left of the toilet. When it’s time to empty it, ask your host or dispose of the knotted trash bag in the trash can by the front door.

To help you see more of Berlin, I have collected various travel guides of Berlin and placed them on the living room shelf (above the couch) as well as on the sideboard on the first floor. A few books are also on the dressing table in your room. You are welcome to borrow them. If you then put them back after use, the next guest will also be happy.
Some sockets are already equipped with international plug system. A travel plug is also located in the top drawer of the office section of your cabinet.
In the upper cupboard of the entrance hall you’ll find different handy umbrellas for your convenience. Please, don’t forget to put them back!
Of course you are welcome to have visitors. If there will be more than two people, please coordinate the visit with the host. If someone stays overnight, it is no problem (and will not be charged extra). It would be nice if you could introduce me (so that I don’t accidentally shoot him/her as a burglar of the night ;-)).
The voltage is 220 V. A ⇢travel plug for other systems is waiting for its use in the third drawer under the smoothie maker.
If you want to make sure you wake up at a certain time and not fully rely on your ⇢alarm clock, ask your host.
Lilienthal Park attracts many walkers at any time of the year. It was there that Otto Lilienthal made his attempts at gliding. It is especially beautiful during the cherry blossom. Guided walks on certain topics can also be exciting. However, these are more likely to be found in the city center, e.g.
The two bottles on the side table are complimentary, you would have to get more bottles yourself (see supermarkets). The tap water has drinking water quality.
The Lower Havel in the southwest of the city of Berlin includes the Scharfe Lanke, the Stößensee and the Großer Wannsee. At several places you can practice the following water sports and rent the appropriate equipment:

Google the relevant keywords to find out about current offers. Virtually all of them can also be reached by ⇢Public transport.
To determine the weather, you can use your ⇢thermometer in your room and hygrometer and barometer in the living room (to the left of the display cabinet). In addition, you can use your standard smartphone app. From experience, this is not very accurate, as it is based on the American model, the Global Forecast System (GFS), which does not provide good values for small-hearted and changeable Germany. Better you orient yourself to wetter.net or wetter.com. Wetter online also provides information on pollen counts and winter sports.
For your well-being and a relaxing stay you can use the following things here in the house:
|⇢Bath and Bathtub ,||⇢Earplugs,||⇢Sports room,|
|⇢Bicycle,||⇢Eye mask,||⇢Swimming pool,|
