Once in a while we actually come across an amazingly surprising restaurant. The Melbourne Canteen is one of those restaurants.

Berlin is well known for an abundance of cafes, brunch opportunities, food stalls, fancy restaurants and everything in between. However, while many enjoy life in Berlin by sampling the truly well represented international cuisine on offer, one should not forget to give German cuisine a try as well!
The Bergmannstraße is one of Berlin Kreuzberg’s most popular and beloved streets. Even though it is quite an attraction for tourists, it remains worth a stroll and a nibble.

Feliu is a cosy, authentic and Catalan-vibed restaurant in Berlin. Hidden away in one of Neukölln’s picturesque side streets and thereby safe from tourists or loud and annoying eaters. Feliu is one of those typical ‘Kiez’ gems, known mostly by locals and food-oriented inhabitants of the city.

And luckily, there are many solutions in a place like Berlin that can help you warm up and get through the cold winter nights.
Every year since we have written specials and articles on the Berliner Weihnachtsmärkte, we have mentioned the Lucia Christmas Market, which is one of our favourite locations to enjoy a good glass of Glühwein and/ or Glögg. This year, Lucia is back once more and we will dedicate another article to this fabulously Scandinavian market.
We thought it time to approach this issue differently. Instead of telling you why you should definitely visit as many Christmas markets as possible, why not tell you what is horrible about them? Because there are ample reasons for actually not visiting the Christmas markets during your stay in Berlin. And we will tell you why.
