Bars in Amsterdam

Not only will you find some of the best cocktails at Tales & Spirits, a friendly staff will also host you. And what’s even better: they surely understand their job. Later at night, the party is picking up, especially if they start to play some old tunes. It might happen that the crowd starts to sing.

Sightseeing in Berlin

Of course, the current Checkpoint Charlie somehow is Disneyland. You might not be aware of this but the historical Checkpoint Charlie, which served as a border crossing between the American and the Russian sector of the once-divided Berlin, actually stood a few feet further than its present location. Nevertheless, a photo with the men dressed as military staff is – at least- for the first visit to Berlin a clear must! And just because you are already there and a little education in history hasn’t hurt anybody yet, pay the neighboring Checkpoint Charlie Museum a visit!

Best bars in Berlin

There is hardly another place that currently attracts more hipsters from around the world like this spot. “My Lake House” as you would translate it – is the epitome of Berlin Mitte for quite some time now and is located directly at Rosenthalerplatz

Shopping in Berlin

Leaving the MEININGER Hotel Berlin Prenzlauer Berg to the left and head down the road that seems to lead nowhere and you will reach the Winsviertel that has yet remained somewhat untouched by tourists and this is why we highly recommend it. Here SOEUR is hiding – and it’s a real gem. The vintage store is a great find for fans of eccentric pieces. Even designer fashion is sold here for reasonably prices. Take your time and discover clothes that you won’t find in any other vintage store in Berlin.

Cafés & Restaurants in Berlin

Muse might be the perfect lunch spot in Berlin. The restaurant offers delicious sandwiches, homemade soups and other yummy dishes on weekdays. It is nearly completely farm-to-table as most of the ingredients come from local organic farmers around Berlin.
