One year of rent-free living in the heart of Berlin
reporting about the Eastern Bloc, Berlin and the neighbourhood
The lucky winner will be living at 16 Strausberger Platz, in a refurbished but authentic apartment on the first floor of a historic building. Covering 73 square meters, it has 3 good-sized rooms, a modern bathroom (with a bathtub!) and a bright kitchen. The highlight of the apartment is its unique view. On one side you can see Strausberger Platz with its impressive fountains, and on the other side the TV tower at Alexanderplatz, only a few hundred meters away. It’s the beating heart of Berlin – the best vantage point from which to write the Eastern Blog.
