    If you like your hot sauce, then you are in luck. This place is dedicated to it. They have a great selection of sauces, recipe books, drinks and more. Quite literally the hottest spot in town.

  • Street art

    art • hidden spots • tour

    Street Art can often be very visible and famous, but at the same time, it can be hard to spot and very hidden! One of my tasks is showing you what I call "The Invisible City of Berlin" made of corners, details and many artistic "leitmotiv." If you join me with your eyes wide open, the tour will never finish since you will go on seeing those details that repeat all around town! I strongly recommended taking this tour during your first day in the city.



    burger • food • snack

    Loaded burger time! Take these to go or enjoy them in the restaurant with a side of chips and dip. Either way, these burgers hit the spot.


    Café Babette

    historical • hidden • beer

    Cool east-German style club. It was originally built as a beauty salon in the GDR in 1960. Now it has a beergarten, a pinboard, a laboratory, a playground, music and more.

    bridge • sightseeing • Friedrichshain

    Take a stroll over the bridge that used to mark the border between East and West. Watch the sun set over the Spree before hitting the clubs and bars of Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg. Now, on summer evenings the bridge becomes a stage for many street musicians and artists.

    Kater Blau

    nightlife • techno • music

    Dance, hippie, electro at Hopper; light techno at Acidbogen. Come with a good mood and leave any tourist or bourgeois guide behind you This is the place where you can wear a wonder woman costume, an old shabby frotte-morning gown, a Zylinder, a Circus-Jacket, a Marine-Boy outfit - and it will totally make sense. Time to dance.
