Melancholic Berlin

by Niki Kefala

Berlin is a multicultural metropolis with a melancholic feeling. Size-wise, Berlin is pretty big but its key areas are wonderfully compact and easily navigated on foot, by bike or by using public transport. This is a city that staged a revolution, was headquartered by Nazis, bombed, divided in two and finally reunited.

Walk along remnants of the Berlin Wall, marvel at the splendour of a Prussian palace, visit Checkpoint Charlie or stand in the very room where the Holocaust was planned. In Berlin the past is very much present wherever you go. And if you enjoy the nights out, Germany’s capital is the right place for you, because is the city that truly never sleeps.

Dress up: If you are wondering what to wear,  I would recommend you comfortable flatties or trainers for tearing around during the day. Don’t make an effort to be stylish because in Berlin the street style rules and “comfort” is the key word.

Yummy: Berlin is known for its international kitchen, so the choice is yours. But I will recommended you to taste the famous German sausage. The ‘secret’ sauce topping its classic Currywurst comes in a four-tier heat scale from mild to wild. Yummy…

Like home: I stayed not in a hotel but in apartment that is available for renting through airbnb. It is cheaper and makes you feel like local.

The three words you must know if you are visiting Berlin.

Das Essen: meaning the food

Das Wasser: meaning the water

Guten Morgen: meaning good morning
