Hi Dorianne, 

You picked a great time to come to Berlin! Summers here are absolutely incredible. Everyone is outside, restaurants and cafes all have tables out on the sidewalks, not a single person can be found indoors. It's quite magical! Bring your comfy shoes and warm weather clothes! 

Berlin is indeed a walking city. The public transportation system here is amazing, but the city is so walkable that many times I skip the subway/trams all together in favor of walking and exploring the streets. Definitely bring comfy shoes. You don't see a lot of high heels here. It's just not practical, especially with the cobblestone streets. I would suggest getting a 1-day, 3-day, or 5-day pass on the BVG system in the A-B zone (you won't need A-B-C zone). Or renting a bike if you like to bike. The entire city has bike lanes (mostly on the sidewalks) and since it's very flat, it's so easy to get around by bike. 

For food, it really just depends on what you like. Berlin is becoming more diverse by the minute, so there are more variations of cuisines available now than there were even a year ago. Here are some of my favorites: 

Hasir Kreuzberg - Outstanding Turkish food in Kreuzberg aka Xberg.
Silo Coffee - Really fresh brunch with excellent coffee in Friedrichshain.
Schwarzwaldstuben - Great German food in Mitte. Get the käsespätzle!
Restaurant Papaya - Really delicious Thai food in Friedrichshain. 
Ristorante Masaniello - Authentic Neapolitan pizza in Xberg. Everything is good!
Planet Wein - They do a 6 course cheese tasting dinner paired with wine, all of which are from Germany for 35euro! 
House of Small Wonder - Super duper cute spot in Mitte with authentic Japanese comfort food as well as tasty French food. One of the best brunch options in my opinion! 
Industry Standard NK Social Restaurants UG (haftungsbeschränkt) & Co. KG - One of the best meals I've had so far. Seems very Californian. 

As for museums, we have Museum Island here, so you can knock out 5 museums in one go! In addition to those, I would highly suggest the Topography of Terror and the East Side Gallery

Enjoy Berlin!

Hi Dorianne,

Not sure where you're staying in Berlin so I'll throw out a few places we loved. Berlin definitely has some great coffee shops: The BarnNO FIRE NO GLORYFive Elephant - Coffee Roastery & Cake ShopBonanza Coffee RoastersOslo Kaffebar19 gramsChapter One Ohg, and CK Café

You have to go to Mustafa's Gemüse Kebap for a doner kebab-the line gets long so if you can get there before the lunch rush on a weekday that's the best time to go. Totally worth the hype, the first place I'll be heading when I return to Berlin!

We had an AMAZING meal at Bocconi - a very small Italian restaurant owned by Fabio, originally from Sicily and he left his corporate job to pursue his passion. Delicious food, all homemade - including the pasta. I'd recommend a reservation. (More details and photos here)

Another great one-stop-shop for all your food needs is at KaDeWe, a major department store with an entire floor dedicated to food and drink. This would be a great stop at anytime of the day, but I think it's the perfect spot to grab lunch or pick up food for a picnic in the Tiergarten.  

Hope this helps, enjoy Berlin!

Hi Dorianne, 

When it comes to food, I can fill you in there! 

Berlin is amazing in the summer, so a few outdoor food events are popping up like Bite Club (near Arena Club, Badeschiff and Hopetosse), Neue Heimat and the long standing favorite, Street Food Thursday.  For pizza, I recommend Il Ritrovo-Cucina Casalinga Popolare,Ristorante Masanielloand for something a little more out of the box, Ron Telesky.  For coffee, you have to give The BarnSilo Coffeeand Bonanza Coffee Roastersa go.  Any other questions about food in particular I'd be more than happy to answer!

My favourite pizza place in Berlin is STANDARD - serious pizza in Prezlauer Berg. There are some good coffee shops in the city. The best ones are Bonanza Coffee RoastersThe Barn, Roamers, Five Elephant - Coffee Roastery & Cake Shop, Kaschk and Father Carpenter Coffee Brewers. It is a BIG city, so having a bike or using public transport will help you get around. There are lots of great museums including three of the best on 'Museum Island'.

Berlin is a great summer city. We visited in June one time and the weather was so great that we went to the top floor in KaDeWe store and bought lots of goodies and some wine then had a picnic in the Tiergarten I still smile when I think of that lovely lunch! Berlin is very walkable and the Metro is good too. Don't miss the Holocaust Memorial and the Botanischer Garten

Everytime I come to Berlin, I have to go to AMRIT - Berlin Kreuzberg. It's a very, very good Indian restaurant, they now have four restaurants (Oranienstraße in Kreuzberg, Oranienburger Straße in Mitte, Winterfeldplatz in Schöneberg and on Potsdamer Platz). Have a look here:

Ciao Dorianne,

one of the things you really shouldn't miss is the Street Food Day in Markthalle Neun every Thursday night! I love the market atmosphere and meeting people from all over the world that make their specialty! Pizza I like the Da Gregorio with typically Italian thin crusts :D! It's tiny so more a to-go or lunch thing than an long evening with wine experience, I'd say, but goood^^!

Just for seeing and exploring I'd recommend the Hackescher Hof with beautiful old mosaics and special creative shops! Also the audio-tour with OR-scans for the smartphone is nice!

Joy to you!
