Apartments with history – newly renovated for you

If you are studying or doing an apprenticeship/training program in Frankfurt (Oder), we have the right apartment for you! This 19th century building complex, which recently underwent a renovation that was completed in 2020 and that also included construction of a stylish new building, is centrally located between the train station and Viadrina: the Ferdinandshöfe.

Each of the 129 accommodations (single, two-bedroom or three-bedroom apartments) has been modernised: custom-made furniture, sleek bathrooms and a practical kitchenette, fast Internet, numerous common areas, handicapped accessible and with a great sense of community.

How do I pay my rent?

Who can I contact if I have problems in my apartment?

Please contact the Ferdinandshöfe management directly using the form or call them at the telephone number at the bottom of the page.
We will soon have on-site caretaker service.

Providing notice, moving out

When and how can I provide notice that I want to terminate my rental agreement?

You can terminate your rental agreement as of the end of the semester by providing written notice at any time that is at least four weeks before the semester end (exception: the minimum rental term of three months and limited rental agreements). Note here that the termination notice must be received by the management by this date.

What do I have to do before I move out?

  1. You must provide the management with written notice of termination in due time.
  2. The management will send you a confirmation of termination in which the actual end of the rental term is specified.
  3. It is necessary for you to pay your rent until the actual end of the rental term even if you may want to move out earlier.
  4. Together with the building technician, the rental parties are to carry out a joint preliminary acceptance inspection no later than approximately 14 days before the actual end of the rental term. At this appointment, the building technician will point out possible defects to you. This leaves you 14 days to have the defects rectified in a professional manner.

When will I get my deposit back?

Handover/return of your apartment is usually carried out by the caretaker with you present. The condition of your apartment will be examined, and the handover will be recorded in a report. If there are no complaints or defects, you will get your deposit back in full. If your apartment needs to be repaired, the cost of the repair will be deducted from the deposit.
Payment/transfer is usually made within 6 weeks after the end of the rental term to an account to be named by the tenant (such as your account or your parents’ account) (see handover report). In the event of more extensive repair work, repayment of the remaining amount could also take longer. It depends on factors including availability of craftspersons or the required material.

Around the Ferdinandshöfe

Where is the Ferdinandshöfe located?

The Ferdinandshöfe is located in Frankfurt (Oder) directly between the train station and the European University Viadrina (approx. 5 to 7 minutes’ walk). The centre of Frankfurt (Oder) is also in the immediate vicinity.

When was the Ferdinandshöfe built?

The Ferdinandshöfe looks back on a long history that is rich in tradition. The complex was constructed as a brewery in the middle of the 19th century. After that, it was converted into a bedspring factory and then a distillery. Finally, the ensemble was extensively renovated and expanded to include a new building between 2017 and 2020.

Have the buildings been renovated in an environmentally friendly way?

The Ferdinandshöfe has been certified with the “Seal of Quality for Sustainable Housing”. The renovation was planned and implemented with sustainability in mind. The existing structure was kept and reused in part, allowing a great deal of “grey energy” to be conserved. In this way we make it possible for you to live with a minimal CO₂ footprint.

Is the Ferdinandshöfe handicapped accessible?

Yes. All apartments, common areas and pathways are accessible to the handicapped.

Are there different apartments to choose from?

Everyone can find the right apartment at the Ferdinandshöfe, whether you are looking for a single apartment, a room in a two- or three-bedroom shared apartment or an entire flat.
Due to the various building and floor plans, the individual apartments also differ from each other. Have a look at the floor plans here and send us the building and apartment number if you are interested.

How are the individual apartments furnished?

Each apartment is rented newly* furnished with a:
bed, built-in closet, shelves, a table and a chair available in every room.
A modern kitchenette with sink, stove and refrigerator is available in every apartment as well as a new* bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet.

*All apartments were fitted with new furniture in 2020 when the renovation was completed.

What is special about the Ferdinandshöfe?

The Ferdinandshöfe is not a dormitory in the conventional sense. In addition to your individual apartment, there are many other options available to you due to the great common areas and a sense of community you will love.
