Berlin locals, Heather and Jan, shares their favourite places in Berlin. Take a hot rod city tour, enjoy delicious handmade sausages at Meisterstück, grab a drink at the Monkey Bar, and you’ll have spent your day like a true Berlin local.
Berlin doesn’t claim to be Europe’s most beautiful capital, but it’s a city that represents Europe’s past – and its future. It’s hard to believe that barely a generation has passed since Berliners tore down the Berlin Wall, and since then, the city has resonated with diversity and open-mindedness. Walk the streets of Berlin and you will come face to face with reminders of some of the most terrible and moving periods in world history. That’s even before you enter any of the hundreds of museums, galleries, and memorial sites. Join the locals for a drink by the canal in Kreuzberg, sample organic produce at a market in Prenzlauer Berg, party all night in Neukölln, or check out the shops and cafés of elegant Charlottenburg.
