Trendy places in Berlin
Wednesday 29, September 2010
Berlin – the capital of Germany, is often called the New York of Central Europe. No wonder why. In this city nationalities, trends and art styles create an incredible mix.
The best way to get to know the city better, is by visiting its districts one by one as each of them creates its own world. The most trendy place in Berlin is the Prenzlauer Berg where the most famous designers live. If you want to see some of the Parisian style and elegant boutiques, you need to visit the Charlottenburg. The Stadtmitte (the middle of the city) is another place not to be missed as there you can meet not only celebrities, but also VIPs or artists sipping the so called Milchkafee (coffee with steamed milk) with the Apfelstrudel (apple pie) or drinking a cold beer – the BerlinerKindl.
Below we present some of the most trendy places in Berlin:
1. Fionna Bennett
Hats looking like pieces of arts. As simple as that. They are handmade, unique and personally tailored. They are very diverse: funny, elegant or extravagant.
Mitte, Grosse Hamburger Strasse 25
You can find here everything what you need while dancing: clothes, shoes and accessories. There are tango shoes directly from Argentina.
Schoneberg, Goltzstrasse 3
The name Shibuya comes from a fashion district in Tokyo. Here you will find a mix of Japanese trends. Clothes, bags, jewelry and lingerie can be all yours.
Hackeschen Höfe, Münzstrasse 16
PUBS, CLUBS, RESTAURANTS
1. CHA CHA Restaurant
Here you will experience “positive eating”. The restaurant offers some great gluten free options. All the meals are really fresh and light.
Mitte, Friedrichstrasse 63
2. Telecafe in Fernsehturm
The Berlin’s highest bar and a restaurant at a height of 207m. Enjoy this fantastic lookout point which, on a clear day, offers a view of up to 80 km in all directions.
So called “ fashion victims club”. Visited by models, stylists and fotographers. In this place, a dress from Prada is a must as well as a bottle of a good Champagne.
Unter den Linden, Friedrichstrasse
1. Bleibtreu Hotel
Experience an open, modern and communications-friendly house at the Bleibtreu Hotel Berlin, whose smooth elegance and attention to detail create lasting impressions. Furnishings designed exclusively for this boutique underline the house’s individuality. Each floor has its own style and the color scheme.
Uhlandstrasse/Adenauerplatz, Bleibtreustrasse 31
2. Ku Damm 101
Modern and stylish, every room of the Ku Damm 101 Hotel is furnished with designer chairs, and a rubber toy peers back at you from the white-tiled bathroom meant to emulate the Paris metro. Business travelers will appreciate the high speed wireless LAN access of the Ku Damm 101 Hotel and the proximity to the convention center, while everyone will like the sunny seventh-floor breakfast room.
Adenauerplatz, Kurfuerstendamm 101
3. Hotel Otto
Completely renovated and refurbished in 2008. 46 modern rooms and studios offer functional design and highest comfort. Free high speed wireless (WIFI) Internet connection available in all rooms. The breakfast lounge Etage 07 offers an extraordinary view over the rooftops of Berlin. Organic products, homemade and weekly changing specialities and an extra long breakfast service till 11 am promise a perfect start in the day. The favourite place during summer: its sundeck!
Ernst-Reuter-Platz, Knesebeckstrasse 10
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
