I’ve never been to Berlin before but I’ve heard nothing but good things about this city. I’m very very VERY excited to go and explore for myself.
Couz Dan moved there two years ago, and I’ll be staying at his place (thanks dude for the hospitality and for the picture!) He lives in Friedrichshain, a supposedly very trendy neighborhood I’m so stoked to explore.
Needless to say it, I’ll do some sightseeing and be a typical tourist, but for the most part I’ll just wander the street of Berlin and do as the locals do.
I’ll definitely go for a run at Temperhofer-Feld — a former airport recently converted into a city park in downtown Berlin.
I also plan to take a Bikram Yoga class in German. I won’t understand a thing, but I’ll just go with the flow and have a blast.
Then there’s this Street Food Thursday festival in Markthalle Neun I can’t wait to go to.
It’s a food fair that takes place every Thursday night, where you can taste delicious food from all over the world, cooked by young, talented chefs. I’ve heard so many good things about it, I can’t wait to see for myself what it is all about.
There are tons of places I’m dying to check out such as: Sunday flea markets (Maybachufer, Neue Heimat), hip cafes (Aunt Benny, Kaschk, Suicide Sue, Gipfeltreffen), trendy bars (Hops & Barley, Klukerkranich, Prater Garden, KPTN), and local dining favorites (Yumcha Heroes, Chicago Williams, Roamers).
What else do I have to see? I’m listening because you were so right about the Amsterdam suggestions last year.
If you happen to be in Berlin, you can spot me in the streets. I’m the tall, blond guy who walks excessively fast. I always have a camera with me and I do my best to not look like a tourist. Though I fail. Every.Single.Time. The fact that I don’t speak a word of German is the dead giveaway.
