How to get to Humboldt-Universität
The apartments for the Winter Session in January 2015 at the corner of Adalbertstrasse and Melchiorstrasse are not far from Berlin's city centre. The Heinrich-Heine-St. underground station (U8) and the Jannowitzbrücke underground and suburban rail stations (several lines going in various directions) put you within minutes of Alexanderplatz, Humboldt-Universität, and of a variety of restaurants and cultural institutions.
Close to the apartment building you can find supermarkets, a shopping mall with grocery stores, small restaurants, banks and a pharmacy.
Just a few minutes walk from the apartment block you can find several doctors, dentists and an internet café where you can purchase prepaid calling cards.
Here you can find photos and information PDF. If you have questions, please write or call us directly. Please do not use the address given on the information sheet.
If you prefer not to rent the apartments offered by us, you can also choose to book a room in a hotel or hostel in the city.
The university’s dining hall offers reasonably-priced lunch (approximately 3 Euro per meal).
** You will receive your deposit in cash only in the event of a flawless inspection of your room during the regular check-out times.
In case of early departure we kindly ask you to inform us about your bank details within four weeks after the end of your course. The deposit will be transferred to your account given that everything is in order after the room inspection.
