Since my sister recently moved in with her boyfriend in Berlin and basically almost all of my friends back in Germany live in or around Berlin, it was only obvious I was going to visit Germany’s capital for a few days during my trip home this Summer.
I did quite a few fun things while in Berlin, but I edited it down to the highlights and my three favorite spots I would like to share with you!
FOOD: Distrikt Coffee
A super stylish cafe in the middle of Berlin. They offer a modern cuisine until 16:00 and me and my friends were just on time to have a late lunch with Avocado and Beets Toast, Buttermilk Pancakes and Acai Bowls. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the kitchen was able to cater to all our requests! I can’t wait to be back in Berlin to try a few more things on their menu – next time I’ll make sure to go in the morning, the whole cafe seemed to be the perfect place for a relaxed breakfast or brunch!
SNACK: Cookies and Cream
When my friends and I made our way to the Mauerpark on Sunday at noon, we were greeted by great weather and knew it was time for a cone of ice cream to go! Just when the thought hit us, we found a ourselves right in front of Cookies and Cream! They definitely had a deliciously good-looking selection of homemade ice cream that was hard to resist!
Now that I think about it, I should definitely have tried one of their cookies together with my ice cream, but this way I already have a reason to come back!
SHOP: Macy’s First Class Second Hand
Located in a back street to luxurious Kurfurstendamm in the heart of Berlin’s high fashion quarters, Macy’s specialises in branded vintage and second hand goods and clothes and is a popular stop for fashionistas and treasure hunters alike. I was swiped off my feet by the large selection of clothes, shoes, bags and goods, ranging from a few seasons back to off-the-runway current season! Definitely worth a visit on your next Berlin trip – I already know I will be back for sure and not just because of their cute shop-guard, the sometimes loud, sometimes cuddly dog Romeo!
