•••
Berlin is known for its wild parties and vibrant young scene, and with new clubs popping up every day, and legendary clubs such as Berghain and Kater Holzig - it is no wonder it is one of the prime destinations for hedonistic holidays. One of the many yearly party-highlights is the street festival MyFest in the district of Kreuzberg, celebrated every 1st of [...]

Berlin Coffee Haven: Leuchtstoff Kaffeebar

•••
Berlin these days is not for the faint of heart: the pursuit for the ultimate slurp of coffee has increased demand for fine-tuned establishments offering more than your average Milchkaffee. You need to know your flat white from your V60 or Aeropress. Stumptown in, Starbucks out. On a mission to find out more and learn exactly what all these exotic words[...]

East London - the place for British food in Berlin

•••
England - Barely any other country in the world causes such different reactions when it comes to food. Whereas the English worship their greasy breakfast, fish & chips and Cornish pasties, foreigners are either disgusted by or addicted to it – there is no in-between. I have to admit, I am one of the addicts, which is why I was delighted to finally find m[...]

10 of the world's most fashionable museums

•••
Italians are known for their fabulous shoes, French women for their elegance, and who can forget about the fantastic royal wedding dress of English princess Kate earlier this year? Different countries as well as time periods are associated with different styles and fashions. I can spend way too much time looking at my favorite streetstyle blogs from around t[...]

A blind date with Berlin

•••
A while ago, we wrote about the Unseen Tours where you are guided to places you wouldn't normally see as a tourist. In Berlin, you can go on a guided tour where you don't see anything at all. The project "The heard city" (Gehörte Stadt) invites curious visitors to see hear the city with their own ears. With a sleeping mask covering your eyes, a lot of confid[...]

Create & Connect: The Hello Etsy Summit in Berlin

•••
It's always amazing when someone comes up with the effort and energy to create a time and place where like-minded people can get together, exchange, support each other and, in the best case scenario, enjoy a few cocktails while doing all of the above. This past weekend, that someone were the lovely people behind Etsy.com, the website that connects small c[...]

Hüttenpalast, Berlin - Indoor Camping at Hut Palace

•••
“When you travel you’ll always find extraordinary things. But this one is unique”. Philippe smiles. His buddy Alexander nods. The two Belgians are sitting in “their” caravan inside an old vacuum-cleaner factory. Yes, that’s correct. At the “Hüttenpalast” (German for Palace of Huts), the new star on Berlin’s budget-hotel skies, combining a perfect marriage of[...]

Having fun in Berlin without getting wet

•••
Growing up in the North of Germany has taught me two things; firstly, there is no such thing as bad weather, there is only unproper clothing. Secondly, there is no use getting annoyed about the weather, best is just live with it. Then I moved to Berlin and got spoiled by hot summers, the ones where you spend the day swimming in the lake and the nights out[...]

Coffee in Berlin: The Barn

•••
Having read about The Barn on a seemingly infinite number of blogs (for example here, here or here), I eventually decided that this was something I could not miss. What sold it to me, apart from a very good-looking cup of coffee and an attractive wooden interior, was the obvious American vibe in this place, which I do miss sometimes in Berlin's coffeesho[...]
