MAGICIANS, THE GREENS, BANKERS AND FILMMAKERS This is the national heritage monument of one of the best-known areas of Berlin, Kreuzberg, also known as X-Berg, in one of Berlins most famous streets. Gutschow House, built in 1895, an important work of historicism (Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance), is due to the elaborate façade design, its location, its history and the fact that is the only house in the area that 100% survived the World War II, the symbol of southern Friedrichstrasse. Here was from 1910 to 1990 the Mecca of the magicians through the magic headquarters of the world-famous and respected magician Conradi-Horster.

Gutschow House, built in 1895, an important work of historicism (Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance), is due to the elaborate façade design, its location, its history and the fact that is the only house in the area that 100% survived the World War II, the symbol of southern Friedrichstrasse. Here was from 1910 to 1990 the Mecca of the magicians through the magic headquarters of the world-famous and respected magician Conradi-Horster. His positive action, remains until the present to protect and develop the uniqueness of this place and its inhabitants. In 2006, the Greens conjured up a unique opportunity for the then tenants: the right to buy the entire house, 21 apartments. But why has only a mother with two children made use of this right and pledged to pay within 30 days a million amount that she did not have? How could she stand up to gentrification fighting bankers and lawyers with the help of filmmakers? MyBerlinStyle is this touching past and present. The national heritage monument has been 2014 fully restored (new roof, elevator, balconies, windows, heating, bathrooms). The decoration is of high-quality. For the health of our guests and wanting to create a sustainable way of living, we mostly built with natural and organic products like oiled and not varnished massive furniture and floors, natural stones for bathrooms and kitchen, clay walls, organic wall paint. Cleaning is made with gently dosed organic materials, no softeners, no perfumes. Reviews that spark our excitement: 'Feel the history; Love the Comfort' by Curiousnellie brought us to install a lift: 'Six of us - women 'd'un certain age'- stayed here at the beginning of this winter and were all delighted with our choice. The building itself is beautiful, redolent of end of empire flourish, while the apartment, with the gracious proportions of an earlier era is warm and welcoming. We loved the beautiful original wooden floors, the decorative plasterwork on the bedroom ceilings, the sense of space, as well as the terrific shower in a stylish, modern bathroom. Our inner homemakers thrilled to the quality and solidity of the linens and general fittings (and dreamy beds ). The kitchen is really well equipped so we did not just eat breakfast there but prepared some meals too, though there are some good restaurants close by. The main room and the bedrooms are really roomy, not even with 6 of us did it ever feel crowded. Marion , our host in Berlin, was welcoming and gave some really useful tips on eating out and things to do, and his welcome package was chosen with care - organic and delicious. IMPORTANT ! This is a very quiet house, suitable for families or professionals and not for groups drinking a lot and being loud or coming back in the night and disturbing the neighbours. Interaction with guests Interaction with guests is prefered by email and depends on the guests needs Other things to note Please, consider that you will have to pay a 500 Euro security deposit. If you not travel for business reasons, you will have to pay 5% city tax on arrival. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 02/Z/NA/002627-16More
