There are some fantastic, wildly unusual and overwhelmingly creative spaces and places in Berlin. Whether it’s a restaurant or a secret hideout for a romantic picknick, we love strolling around our little Metropolis to find fresh places with an exciting story.

Kanaan Hummus Restaurant

08.02.2016

When I received the invitation I just skimmed through the text because I only read texts that have 140 characters and are exclusively written by me. Visibly impressed I stopped and read the part again where it said „the best hummus in town“. „Ballsy“, I thought to myself. But what is Hummus exactly anyway? That gritty,

The Quick Berlin Tour

05.02.2016

My idea of a guided tour through Berlin is very self-centered. I have a very narcissistic narrative that mostly revolves around where I made out when with whom and which clubs used to be there but which aren’t anymore. My tours generally end without any legit piece of information, and sometimes wasted. There is also

ICC BERLIN

One of my favorite buildings in Berlin is the International Congress Centrum, also known as ICC Berlin. It is a monstrosity wrapped in tin foil, straight out of an Aliens invasion movie (somehow, I associate District 9 with this building). In typical Berlin megalomania, it is one of the largest congress buildings in the world,

Naturkundemuseum Berlin: A Field Trip

25.01.2016

I have to admit, it was the T-Rex that drew me to the Naturkundemuseum Berlin. Although I’d only recently been to the impressive Natural History Museum in New York, I’d never given the museum in Berlin a shot. In fact, I’ve never given ANY museum in Berlin a shot, so after eight years, consider this
Abandoned Warehouse Lichtenberg Berlin-8511

Fleischfabrik in Lichtenberg

20.11.2015

Between visiting the Stasi-Museum and riding our bikes to Don Juan Center, my friend Rachel and I stumbled upon an odd warehouse in the middle of Lichtenberg (although I don’t know if it is the “middle” of Lichtenberg. It’s maybe just somewhere in Lichtenberg). Since I’ve probably never even been through Lichtenberg before, and because we

  My favorite German word is “Hochkultur”, because it implies that culture, per se, is low and that you have to willingly participate in some form of elevation to know what Hochkultur means. Unfortunately, not many people know that High Culture doesn’t need to be elitist, conservative and lame. Especially when it comes to classical

BOULANGERIE FRANÇOIS: The Secret Bar

18.11.2015 · 38 comments

I always forget that this part of Friedrichstrasse exists. But walking up to the spotlit bright blue exterior of the BOULANGERIE FRANÇOIS, with all these fancy people queuing up behind the red rope in heels (HEELS! In Berlin!), I wonder why I’m not here more often. I’ve been tempted up here for the opening night
Stasimuseum Lichternberg DDR Berlin-8405

Stasimuseum Berlin

I never get tired of mentioning how much I detest museums and most exhibitions. Unless I have a very specific interest in something that is shown, I would rather spend my time and money on strolls through forgotten streets and eat artisan cakes. But the Stasimuseum caught my attention, not necessarily for its content (as German

The Definite Berlin To Do List

What bugs me with Berlin tourist guides, usually, is how general they are on selling the city. God knows everything is sold to you nowadays: even experiences. They’re bundled, packaged and sold. But come on, at least sell the right experiences. Berlin, like most global metropoles, offers many things that are becoming universal: designer cafés with stripped walls and

The Vacancy: A “Berlin Experience”?

26.10.2015

  Berlin is littered with abandoned places, but you can rarely find them in the city center anymore. The last one’s are either immediately sold to the biggest investor – a process that has been going on for a while – or used as temporary space. But not by artists, makeshift ravers or cultural programs,

  Guys. It was only a matter of time, but now my dreams came true: a Peruvian Ceviche restaurant, only 300 meters from my living room away. Guys. Paradise has opened its doors for me. It’s the truth. Of course, on the first day of opening, I had to go in and see for myself.

I’m a really bad Berlin blogger, as most of you know. I rarely update around here and when I do, I’m five years too late for the exciting stuff. I have stopped pressuring myself, though. In fact, I enjoy roaming the same streets every day, visiting the same restaurants. Unless it’s something really new, innovative

Urban Exploring: Photography with PERSPEKTEVA

  Visiting and photographing abandoned, mostly former industrial buildings from the Nazi & Cold War era has become a very popular sport in Berlin. There’s an eerie feeling to breaking & entering a seemingly forgotten place, one that actually reminds you of the history of the city you are residing in. It’s an unconstructed, uneconomic experience

Favorite Restaurants & Cafés of 2015 (so far)

10.09.2015 · 5 comments

What constitutes a favorite restaurant? I guess one of the main criteria is how often you actually go there. Not just theoretically. Of course, there are many places that I visit every so often for special occasions, or places that I’ve tried and been blown away by without returning (for whatever reason). In the past
