Nature
“Berlin will surprise you. For example with the most charming petting zoo in a public park. Take the street down towards Görlitzer Park and turn left just by the entrance. It's an amazing place if you travel with children, for sure. We also love to come here to let out our inner child or to play some table tennis. Closed on Wednesdays.”

“The 8mm Bar is about the size of your living room at home, so a first-class location to get talking with new people. The crowd in this in-place is fairly international, the atmosphere is easy-going and flirt-benficial. Above all, the bar is well-known for their sharp-looking staff. Not only is the 8mm Bar the place to be for many rock fans, also bands like Franz Ferdinand, Interpol and Bloc Party have turned the night into day here. So if you want to make out with a rock star...”

Coffee Shop

“You stuble basically into Rixbox when you leave our flat. This mini streat-food, coffee-box is just one of my favorite spots in Berlin. You get realy realy good coffée, wonderful snacks and delicious vine. I love this place as it brings together all kind of people from the quarter, because they use regional products and colaborate with other neighbourhood initiatives as for example the balera-vine corner, where they get their vine from! Every wednesday they organise small life-gigs what's also realy nice! Perfect spot, just try it!”
