Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Berlin

Golfpark Schloss Wilkendorf
Berlin is not top of the greens when it comes to golf but if the prospect of a city break without teeing off gets your argyle-patterned knickers in a twist then you'll be pleased to know that an 18-hole course awaits.
Spa de Rome
Part of the upmarket Hotel de Rome this exclusive environment is perfect for relaxing and re-energizing.
Tiergarten Park
Hamam in der Schokoladenfabrik
Only women are allowed at this spa, and they can take advantage of the tearoom and gardens or enjoy a extended massage.
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.
Thermen am Europa-Center
Alba Basketball
Basketball may not be an international sport here in Berlin but a game is fun nevertheless. Slam-drunks abounds here at Max-Schmeling-Halle.
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.
Olympiastadion
Germany is known as the home of good football so it's hardly surprising that its capital is home to a good stadium. Cheer on the boys like a local.
Adlon Day Spa
Not many spas can boast being set over three different floors but this is one of them and could be your escape from the stresses and strains of hard Berlin partying.
Sommerbad Kreuzberg
The Princes' Pool out doors with multiple pools and even a nudist area for those who want to hang loose in the summer sun. Expect it to get busy on hot days.
Surf & Segelschule
Set against the biggest lake in Berlin this a school offering courses as well as renting out all sorts of different aquatic vehicles.
Aldon Day Spa
Liquidrom
A completely unique experience is to be had at the Liquidrom spa where underwater speakers add an utterly new dimension into soaking in water.
Berlinagenten Lifestyle Tours
Bespoke lifestyle tours that get under the skin of Berlin and discover the city's local hotspots.
Kanu Connection
Canoeing can be a competitive sport indeed, which is why Berliners love nothing more than taking to the waterways that run through their city and paddling like there's no tomorrow.
Kart World
Everyone loves tearing around track in a go-kart so put your foot to the metal in Berlin and show onlookers what you're made of. Ready, set, go!
EuroSpeedway Lausitz
A mere 130km south-east of Berlin lies the petrolhead-heaven of the Eurospeedway Lausitz; check ahead for the racing schedule or test the limits of your own car on track days.
ADFC Berlin e.V.
Almost totally flat and laced with cycle lanes Berlin is built to bike. Many use it as a means of transport but there are plenty of scenic routes to be enjoyed too.
Ars Vitalis
Most of Berlin's five-star hotels boast world-class spas but in the unlikely event that you find yourself holed up in a hotel without one head to a day spa to rest relax and rejuvenate.
Stadtbad Charlottenburg
With two halls to choose from this swimming centre can either be a sedate paddle through history or a more serious thrash to good health.
Sporting Club Berlin
Wassersportzentrum
Bero
Berlin Ballooning
Up up and away! There's no better way to see a city than from above so jump in a basket and get a bird's eye view of Berlin from the comfort of a balloon.
Galopprennbahn Hoppegarten
A day at the racing is always fun and that's no more true than in Berlin. If you're visiting Berlin in August during Derby week remember to bring a big hat.
Beach Mitte
They might not look like beach bunnies but Berliners take beach volleyball very very seriously. Some 3000 tons of sand are deposited annually making the city a serious contender in the seaside sport.
Schloss Wilkendorf
City Beach Berlin
It might seem an unlikely location but Berlin is a premier spot for beach volleyball. The German Open is one of the biggest on the circuit and Berlin played host to the World Championships in 2005.
Day Spa Berlin
Everybody needs a little break away from the hustle and bustle - and a professional spa treatment where you can you sink into blissful state of relaxation and lethargy is one of the best ways to do that.
Stadtbad Mitte
The architecture of this unusual building alone is enough to draw the crowds. A renovated 1928 Bauhaus structure, the 50-metre pool can be found within a glass cube.
Benita
Wassersport Grossbeeren
