Welcome in our home! On this page you’ll find all information you need to make the most of KMA123.
there will be a person coming to look at various meters inside the flat. Among others, these are the water meters and the heating meters (on the batteries).
It usually does not take longer than about 5min but they need access to all the meters, i.e. things in front of the meters should be cleared away. This is particularly important for the water meters in the kitchen (see photo).
It would be really great if you could be there during that time and let the people into the flat.
Water meters in the kitchen, please remove glasses before the service people arrive.
The white box on the floor in the hallway.
Please do not bring any bikes upstairs. There is a Bike shed inside (on ground floor, left side). Park your bike there. Please remember to lock the room, we had cases of thievery there.
It would be great of you could occationally have a look into our letterbox in the entrance area of the building and notify us if there is anything there. Just take a photo of the envelope and send it to us. Thanks!
The mailbox key is the small one on the left in this image.
The red floor is beautiful but has two flaws:
The flat is generally a little wet, so please make sure to ventilate the rooms at least once a day (open many windows for 10-15min). Dry your clothes on the foldable wooden rack, e.g. in the living room. We found that an additional tumbling (turn the dial to “Pumpen/Schleudern”) reduces the time for drying to 1-2 days.
Good news! The plants in the kitchen are getting their water automatically. Please have a look roughly every four weeks and refill the tank in the corner box. Just plain water from the tap, please.
All other plants (kitchen, bathroom) would need some water every week or so. We and the plants would be grateful if you could provide it to them occationally!
Please sort your garbage like this:
The garbage containers outside are the left ones in the photo (taken from our kitchen window). You need the general house key to open the gate.
For some of the trash containers, an additional key is needed: it is the one with the squarish shape labelled “PALUTKE”.
Please separate your garbage as follows:
The stove uses gas. There is a lighter somewhere next to it (with a long snout). You can use that to start the oven, too.
To start the oven,
There are additional oven plates in the drawer below the oven.
The vacuum cleaner is in one of the seating boxes in the kitchen corner. Just lift the lid and take it out.
The dishwasher is straight-forward to use (and is save to be used while being away):
The dishwasher cleaning powder box is the one on the right side of this photo.
The washing machine is straight-forward to use. There is cleaning powder in the closet next to it (“sonett”). Do not add too much powder to it, it’ll complain otherwise.
We made some space in the closet for your items.
Have a wonderful stay!
