The Kollwitzplatz area is one of the most interesting places in the old workers’ district of Prenzlauer Berg. The apartment hotel “ackselhaus” can be found there, as well. 35 flats, studios and suites, a backyard garden and a terrace invite one to find respite in a verdant atmosphere. Even though no room in the two Wilhelminian era buildings is quite like another, they all have timber floor boards, high stuccoed ceilings and frisky interior designs in common. Especially academics and artists like to spend their time in Berlin at the “ackselhaus”.
