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.

Abandoned Warehouse Lichtenberg Berlin-8511

Fleischfabrik in Lichtenberg

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 weren’t really

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 music,

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 of

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 born and bred, what

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

The Vacancy: A “Berlin Experience”?


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, at least not that I know, not like

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. After binge-gorging on Ceviche in

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 and cool, I am quite happy

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

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 months, though, there

I should be work­ing on my thesis and vari­ous other import­ant life things (but mostly Uni­ver­sity related), as I am most likely to take the award home for “longest under­grad stu­dent for a Bach­elor of Arts degree EVER”, and yet here I am think­ing: well, I should go to a trip to the Bundestag some time.

Laily’s Berlin: Three Days Of Nelly


Once again I was able to share my bliss­ful stay with another vis­it­ing friend. She’s a German-bred woman, but had not yet given her taste-buds a bite of this city… not to men­tion the heav­enly Prin­zessinnengarten pizza we rewar­ded ourselves with when our insanely busy week­end came to an end. I’ve real­ized this trip has taught me a lot about myself;

Club Doors: Day & Night 2015

29.07.2015 · 13 comments

Over four years ago, Mar­cus released a post on Find­ing­Ber­lin about how the Ber­liner club doors looked by day­light. The post became one of our biggest at the time, and people star­ted play­ing the game of “guess the door”. What it became to me, though: a list of clubs that were slowly disappearing. Now, in 2015, not only

Laily’s Berlin: Steak Night Show Recap


STEAK NIGHT SHOW was put on by none other than Medi­asteak (we can see how the theme ties in eh?), an online blog ded­ic­ated to show­cas­ing their per­sonal col­lec­tion of not­able doc­u­ment­ar­ies and short films. It is a bril­liant way to expose your­self to a world of film that isn’t so often publicized. The night took place
