Le Labo Fragrances store in berlin Schlüterstraße. A visit is a beautiful feast for the senses.
Living in Berlin, means having every day the possibility to go to another super cool, trendy Café, Restaurant or Bar. Well, I have neither the time nor the money. Further it is quite tiring all this trendiness. So if you know me a bit or follow me on social media you already know there are a few places I go regularly.
Kame – Japanese Café and Bakery in Berlin – Kirschblüten für Gottfried Wilhelm Japanese Baking goods for us. Well, it wasn’t by chance that my friend Mark discovered a Japanese Café and Bakery in Berlin. Kame had to be found by him, him and his obsession for everything Japanese.
Well, that’s the thing with Berlin, being in the press for being one of Europe’s most trendy, cool, cheap, party city only shows one little bit from this beautiful city. Almost every real Berliner will inform you this reputation has not so much to do with the city we grew up. Berlin is a very green“ city. There are many parks like the Tiergarten (210 hectares (520 acres)), Tempelhofer Park, Mauerpark and many, many more. Furthermore 18 % of the Area of Berlin is Forrest, like the Grunewald and the Spandauer Forrest.
Everybody is buzzing about this place and because it happens to be located in my neck of the woods, I guess I want to make sure I mention it as well.
Long Story Short, is a cafe & shop in Berlin-Charlottenburg. I can’t believe this little treasure was found by Jonathan and not me – usually, I am the Kaffeetante.
Very close to the ICC is the Berliner Funkturm, a former broadcasting Tower. the tower is built by Heinrich Straumer in the 1920ies on the occasion of the third international Funkausstellung. The lange Lulatsch as the monument is nicknamed in Berlin, is more than 40 Years older than the Berliner Fernsehturm and now a protected monument. There is now a restaurant and etc., I advent been on the Top since I was child, but the view is breathtaking and worth a visit.
The Kastanie in Berlin Charlottenburg, is one of the places you go when you need a chilled drink and a relaxed place to be, nothing posh or hip.
Summer arrived finally in Berlin as well with hot 37°C. A very good opportunity to pick up our tradition of posh summer picnics at Spreeufer with Mark and Jonathan. Nicely chilled champagne, cheese, salad and fruits no wonder the swans were joining us watching the sundown.
Maître Phillipe & Filles is a deli located at Ludwig-Kirch-Platz, in Berlin Charlottenburg, selling french delightfulness. So the place to be for me.
Karun Bistro offers Persian style kitchen and is an excellent place for a snack and not too expensive, not as cheap as everybody thinks but still OK. The staff is super friendly and after a exhausting shopping experience on Wilmersdorfer Strasse the right thing to help you to recover. What you see in the picture is a falafel in bread and the schawarma plate.
