Lokal
Kit Kat Club
Infamous for its starring role in the Liza Minnelli film Cabaret the KitKat club is now known for its more 'adult entertainment'.

Tiergarten Park
Ehrenburg
The cheerily lit Ehrenburg is the perfect spot for a mid-morning espresso.
Hotel Art Nouveau
Intimate converted townhouse designed with artistic flair.
Marina Lanke Berlin
With its waterways and rivers Berlin is the ideal city for taking out a boat and reclining blissfully on the deck of a chartered yacht... hopefully glass of wine in hand.
Der Freischwimmer
A laid-back flea-market decorated living room vibe.
Kapelle
This organic café is the perfect place to relax over a long breakfast.
Fluido
Fluido works hard to earn the title of best cocktail bar in town.
Ellington Hotel
Tradition with a modern twist is served up in style at the wonderful Ellington.
Kaufhaus des Westens
A spectacle of a department store analogous to Harrod's in its finery. A different class of shopping.

Locals flock to Epoque for the fresh inventive seasonal menu.
Schneeweiss
Warming alpine fare in a light white hipster environment.
Vau
Modern and elegant this Michelin-starred restaurant offers true gastronomic work-out.
Staatsoper Unter den Linden

Aside from the various flea markets where bargain hunters can pick up vintage clothing and antique jewellery, there are a few dedicated shops in Mitte and Schöneberg selling all sort of knick-knacks.
P&T Boutique
Tea becomes unbelievably hip at a boutique aimed at teaching Berliners about the finer points of tea...

Flea Markets
Berlin is famous for its well-stocked flea markets which sell anything from vintage clothing and retro furnishings to old audio equipment and antique jewellery. Snap up a bargain!
Badeschiff
Berlin's swimming pools are a great example of Berlin's uniqueness - where else would you find a heated pool suspended in a river (that serves cocktails) regular nude bathing evenings and kilometres of sandy beach? 50 laps has never been as much fun.
Morgenrot
Harking back to East Berlin's more anarchic days this café is affiliated with the neighbouring squat.
