Since starting this new series, every week it made me happy to find so many inspiring links all around the web which expressing the city’s spirit. With summer just around the corner, there are already more than 10 editions of Links in Berlin and we’re looking forward to many more. Feel free to share your own favorite reads about this beautiful city tagging them #linksinberlin on twitter or Facebook and I’ll be happy to include them in future editions. Until then enjoy our round-up of the best of Berlin’s blogs (and some news):

Summer hit Berlin, pushing us citizens with temperatures that can only be called “too hot” – where is this weather-glory leading, you might ask. Will we have an endless summer? Weeks of sun and shine ahead?
At least, tomorrow there’ll be rain and slightly cooler temperatures. A good day to read all the links we’re suggesting in this very post. Because Sunday it’s great weather again (!), so we’ll head to the parks and lakes (after we fulfilled our citizen-duty and voted, of course).
Oranienstraße is the prominent street that is crowded with people searching for drinks and fun at night, and hundreds of hungry working lot looking for a good lunch during the day. Hence the street is filled with restaurants, cafés and bars. Many of them rather unspectacular and living off circumstance that people have to eat somewhere. And then there are the little foodie havens, which I enjoyed to discover since we moved our office to this part of Kreuzberg. One of the first places I went was Anaveda, and I have loved it ever since.
If you love Rianna Kounou’s colorful vintage paradise just off Oranienburgerstraße, you will most likely also love her newest adventure: she teamed up with Nina Kuhn to open a new store on Steinstraße, were they invite you into their world of gaudy fun made of beautiful pillows, eccentric bags and statement kaftans. It is certainly something else, while most shops in this part of Mitte rely on an international chic interior with moderate colors and graphic furniture, this one’s all about colors and patterns and them clashing in every possible way.
Vegan spots are on the rise, not only in Friedrichshain. This little deli is located just off Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg and thus makes the perfect vegan alternative, and despite calling itself a haven for all vegan junk food lovers, its offered dishes are a lot more healthy than your usual vöner.
