    Komm & Sieh

    This is probably one of the only 'secret spots' left in Berlin for buying cheap designer clothes. It's a small charity shop in a Charlottenburg mall. Let the treasure hunt begin.

    Osteria Ferrari

    Rumor has it that Daniela and Marco are the best Italians in town. And the best chefs, too. Try gnocco fritto and tigelle.

    Windburger

    Some say this is the best burger in Berlin. And there are a lot of burgers in Berlin. By the way, they have fries that are literally drowning in chili and cheese which we couldn't think more highly of. Thank us later.

    Bocci 79

    This wonderful place is a showroom for Bocci catalogue pieces and an archive for Omer Arbel’s free explorations and architectural projects. 79 is located in west Berlin inside a 2,200 m2 historic courthouse, constructed in 1896. Its always worth to go there for inspiration and for being tauchet by real beauty.

    Take a seat around the conveyor belt at this cute little Japanese spot. It's time to pack away many a round of high-quality sushi as you please. Craving? Sorted.

    Rogacki

    For a taste of bygone Berlin, make your way to this old Berliner market hall - and head straight for the very good fried fish. Not much has changed here since its 1928 inception.

    Schaubühne

    If I didn't live very far in the East and the trip to Schaubühne weren't thaaat long I would go to every play there. The choice of plays is great with the plays normally being innovative and modern in teh best sense of the word without having the need to constantly scream, get naked or hurl around feces.
