Berlin

In September, we had a chance to visit Berlin – my absolute favorite city in Germany – for the second time. As always, Berlin was filled with culture and charm.

Berlin always feels like a unique space, where history exists everywhere in concentrated form. From the pre-war buildings, retro stations to the remnants of the Berlin Wall, you can really feel the modern German history wherever you go.

 

The Coffee – Café Einstein Stammhaus

 

We only had a weekend in Berlin, so we tried to be selective on where we visited. For coffee, we went to the Café Einstein Stammhaus on Kurfürstenstraße. Situated inside a villa, this café has a very artsy, retro vibe and has a great brunch menu.

The Tea – Paper & Tea

 

Paper & Tea, a tea concept store in Berlin, is all in all a great place to visit. Their collection of fine teas in beautiful packaging, as well as their stationary collection with labels like Rifle Paper & Co. are definitely worth a look.

The Bookstore – Bücherbogen

 

A good bookstore is a must on my list every time I travel. Bücherbogen is a great place to browse books on art & culture and has a very relaxed atmosphere.

Hackesche Höfe

 

Hackesche Höfe in Berlin Mitte is a collection of different shops situated inside eight gorgeous art nouveau buildings. It’s worth a visit to admire the architecture and browse different types of shops and venues.

The Food

 

We had a lot of fun on the gourmet floor at the KaDeWe department store, where they serve a variety of international cuisines. The historic Paris Bar, an institution in Berlin, is also worth a visit for good French food.

It was a pleasure to be able to experience this cultural and international city again. I hope my next visit won’t take too long.
