If you are coming over to the wonderful city of Berlin, either for moving here for an indefinite amount of time, or for a brief trip: there are different ways of arriving in and travelling to Germany’s capital. We will sum up some the essentials and will thereby hopefully help you along with your travels.
Brunch in Berlin is an essential activity, also adopted by trendy parents in the outskirts of Prenzlauer Berg. In Kreuzberg and Neukölln brunching is still young and populated mostly by the trend setting hipsters that Berlin is so well-known for. Mathilda is one of these places, with its small-scaled restaurant located in the Graefestraße right in the middle of Kreuzberg.
Easter is probably the best time to visit Berlin. The last four years that we celebrated this bunny-induced and egg-rich holiday, it has been mindblowingly fabulous weather in the center of the Deutschland universe. Sunny, hot and basically smoldering like a summer’s day. So if you are considering visiting the German capital over Easter: definitely do it. And where to brunch? We give you some answers.
Since I generally go out to eat sushi most of the time in Berlin, I have not been able to explore the various options of sushi ordering too much. (I mean: why order in when for the same price, you can enjoy it outdoors and have a funky experience to boot?) Well, sometimes one does need that lazy Sunday night on the couch, for which ordering sushi is absolutely perfect. One of my recent discoveries is an actually real good place for sushi…
I wandered the streets a few Sundays ago in the the most Wochenende Bezirk of all: Friedrichshain. I wanted classy, slightly posh and simply cosy, classic and à la carte for my brunch location. The night before had lasted traditionally long and with a tired and slightly post-intoxicated smile, we came across Kuchenrausch (Rush of Pie). I used to suspect this place is only interesting for their pies and cakes, but Kuchenrausch is actually a great breakfast restaurant too.
Every time I biked up to Prenzlauer Berg from Mitte or Schöneberg, I panted heavily when passing by Yumcha Heroes. With its bright neon lights showing off their logo and a look of happy and eating customers inside, I alway wondered about the delights that were hiding behind the doors of this restaurant. That this spot is about Asian and fusion, has always been apparent by the colouring and look of the place. Last week, it was finally time – and I made it to Yumcha.
In the hip and trendy Bezirk of Neukölln is a new exciting girl in town. Her name is Sauvage and she is a bio and Paleo-restaurant that offers a mighty interesting menu for a very special culinary experience. Great post-Christmas location for some authentic bio pampering.
The magical days of true Christmas spirit and enjoyment are only a few days away. If you are spending Christmas in Berlin, either as a visiting tourist or a stay-at-home Berliner, you might be wondering what to do in this large city with so many possibilities. That is why we have collected a small handy list of tricks and tips for the first days of Christmas.
Another absolutely fabulous market (because actually: which Berliner Weihnachtsmarkt is not fabulous?) is the Christmas market at and around the Opernpalais. This palace of the opera is one of the most classically beautiful spots in Berlin Mitte and will wisk you away with its magic. Seriously: if you have not been here yet, whether a tourist or a long-term expat, you should definitely pop by the Weihnachtsmarkt am Opernpalais.
