Food in Berlin: Mädchenitaliener

There’s been a time, it’s already several years past, when “lunch menues” had their moment in Berlin. Means getting a starter and a main course for mostly around 8 Euros in mostly Kreuzberg restaurants. This is pretty affordable for two courses, but it also means you eat a lot and as a consequence are very tired in the afternoon. But today, we revived the old habits at Mädchenitaliener.

Shop in Berlin: Arkona Platz Flea Market

First things first, this flea market is not even close to being an insider’s tip. In fact this one might be in every Berlin guide and on every must-do list one can find. On top of that, the offered goods are rather expensive. So why post it, you might ask.

Escape: Polo in Berlin

This weekend I went out to explore what’s usually not on my list of sunday to-dos. We drove far east to watch the finals of the Bucherer Polo Trophy Berlin on the grounds of Galopprennbahn Hoppegarten. Means I spend my sunday in a crowd dressed in white jeans, riding boots and polo shirts with huge logos, and I am not talking about the actual players.
