The warm weather has finally arrived in Berlin, opening a universe of fun activities that no longer involve Christmas markets or searching for the very best hot chocolate in the city.
This post is a list of our favourite places in Berlin for making the most of the summer. Enjoy!
Cool down in the oldest, the healthiest and the smallest parlours
Here are three wildly different ice cream parlours that are well worth a visit:
At Florida-Eis, they serve 80 different flavours, and as the oldest ice cream parlour in the city, they really know what they’re doing…
Tribecca Ice Cream is the place for vegan ice cream connoisseurs and anyone who wants to avoid sugar-laden versions.
Finally, Eismanufaktur is the smallest ice cream shop of them all, but is cosy and welcoming!
Ask about out Picnic Deal and enjoy it out in nature
Treptower Park, on the Insel der Jugend (Island of Youth) and Stralau Peninsula are ideal spots for enjoying a quiet picnic and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Anyone on the lookout for great views while they eat should head to Viktoriapark, while Tiergarten is ideal if you don’t want to move too far away from the city’s major attractions.
Relax in a beer garden
The renowned open-air Biergärten serve Germany’s best beers in magical surroundings. Our favourites are Cafe am Neuen See, Schleusenkrug and Pratergarten, which are all near the water and offer spectacular views.
Dive into a crystal-clear lake
Whether you’re looking to enjoy some fishing, swim in amazing turquoise water, take a trip in a rowboat or jog along the lakeside, you cannot miss out on the top summer activity in Berlin! We love to take a quick trip to Liepnitzsee, Schlachtensee and Krumme Lanke as often as we can.
