In case you can’t go to Japan for the cherry blossom season, you can still enjoy the feeling in Berlin. On April 14th, the Gärten der Welt will open their doors for the annual Kirschblütenfest (cherry blossom festival).
All about berlin
Markthalle Neun is one of the most famous places in Berlin’s food scene, but in some ways its success is a mixed blessing.
When we came Berlin in the early 2010s, this was the quintessential “hipster” place for us: We’d go and listen to the guy at the next table, boasting how he wasted €200 on drinks last night.
I got the recommendation for Lon Men’s Noodle House from a colleague, and I half expected another hip asian place, with a brutalist concrete interior and incandescent lighting. It was not.
Tommi’s Burger Joint appears to be another Berlin classic. I never came around to try it, but since I went on a burger spree for The Urban Animals, I tried their Ku’damm branch as well.
This place rightfully belongs to Paris: French department store Galeries Lafayette is one of the few flagship branches outside their french home.
