After a year (and since the first edition is sold-out), it was time to seriously update my beloved printed guide to this city – to not only cover all the new opening times of my long-time favorites, but to finally include all the new additions – twenty-six new spots to be precise, which pushes it to 98 best places in Berlin in total! To honor this update, Alexandra Bruns developed a new design, with new colors, and a new glossy cover – while we kept all the things that proved to work so well: the format, the folding, the categories. Let me know what you think! And get it here.
The Best Places in Berlin – Map presents my favorite spots in Berlin to eat & to drink, to shop & to simply enjoy. It covers recently opened restaurants like Lode & Stijn or Kanaan, as well as old favorites like Sasaya in Prenzlauer Berg or Dao on Kantstraße. This means it’s not only about in-vogue places such as The Store Kitchen or the internationally renowned Voo Store, but it also showers love on less flashy places that still serve gorgeous food—Akroum Snack on Sonnenallee or GoBento in Prenzlauer Berg, for instance. In addition, I reveal some of my most beloved destinations to shop for fashion, beauty, interior design, and books.
The map received an update for 2016, now featuring 98 places. among them 26 new ones – from Danish bakery The Bread Station to the only good pizza in town: Standard.
Whether you’re a proud Berlin resident or just a temporary or prospective one, I hope you like it as much as I do. It was designed by the gifted Alexandra Bruns (inspired by an Italian pasta package), printed in Berlin by Heenemann, and the little banderole holding it all together was placed by yours truly.
