Oh holy summer, finally you’re here to prove our love for this city – we’ve never understood why some people would leave for holidays during those fabulous (but few) weeks of sunshine and heat, where Berlin looks and feels gorgeous and everything is just great! We hope this short guide will help you to make your summertime even nicer.
Musashi is very small but serves very fine japanese Sushi. (Kottbusser Damm 102, Kreuzberg)
Einstein is a local coffeehouse with branches all over Berlin, but their finest café is still their Stammhaus, located in Schöneberg with a beautiful summer garden and nostalgic charme. (Kurfürstenstraße 58, Schöneberg)
Salon Sucre prepares some delicious french sweets, pastries and cakes – read our interview with the owner to find out more! (Görlitzer Straße 32, Kreuzberg)
Bar3 lies just behind Volksbühne and is thus a favorite for theater people – other arguments would be the minimalistic interior, the excellent music and the cold Kölsch. (Weydingerstraße 20, Mitte)
AltBerlin is located on Mitte’s shopping alley Münzstraße, which is busy during the day, but as good as dead during nights – except the bulk of people visiting this old and charming bar. (Münzstrasse 23, Mitte)
Clubs – It’s summer, stay outside!
Rent a bike and enjoy Berlin’s extensive bike lanes.
Make a trip to Liepnitzsee, north of Berlin, swim to the island in the middle of the lake and dry yourself in the sun.
Thaipark is one of Berlin’s specialities: every weekend dozens of Thai families gather in Preussenpark to prepare and sell very delicious Thai food – bring a blanket and eat yourself through the day!
Have a beautiful summer!
