Weekend inspo: Berlin Edition 


Following the international theme of Cherry's Copenhagen post, our designer Lauren has given her places you must visit from her recent trip to Berlin. Lauren described it as a cross between her two favourite UK cities, London and Sheffield. Built up with amazing architecture yet super green, Berlin is a great city break in Autumn filled with orange hues and we hope you enjoy it as much as she did.

Things to do:

Exhibitions & galleries
Bauhaus Archive- an obvious and very necessary visit
Animal Lovers exhibition- hidden inside a book shop this was a pleasant surprise
Kunsthalle by Deutsche Bank- you may be dubious of art within a bank but it questions itself on this concept within
König Galerie- Contemporary art in a minimalistic space similar to the White Cube in London

Buildings
Kulturforum- a collection of interesting buildings, make sure to check out the ones that have resemblance to blocks of cheese
Reichstag Dome- book in advance, the views and building are really cool
Unite d'Habitation- if you like the brutalist architecture of Sheffield's Park Hill flats this is definitely worth a visit

Shopping
Do you read me? a great magazine and book shop
Papier Tigre and RSVP- beautiful stationary and gift wrap. They're on the same street and are lovely to wander around and stop for a coffee.

Papier Tigre, Mulackstraße 32, 10119 Berlin, Germany

Voo store- a mix of contemporary fashion, with new and renowned brands and designers, books, magazines and a in-house café

Mauerpark Flee Market- a Sunday must do, the biggest market I've been to full of vintage clothes, bric-a-brac, vinyl and crafts.

Things to eat:

W-Der Imbiss- unique Indian-Mexican dishes with a Hawaiian twist you'll want again and again. The 'W' ironically is the Mcdonald's 'M' upside down and prides itself in healthy and fresh meat free food. We ordered fish tacos, curry-in-a-hurry and their signature naan. The place was super busy with a lot of tables having reserved signs so we felt lucky to get a seat. 

Vöner- the best vegan kebab restuarant in Berlin. Even if you eat meat Vöner is worth a visit, we had the Vöner kebab and Currywurst with fries. The place is small and cosy and the food is incredibly tasty. Not too far from this is a charming pub with it's own brewery Hops & Barley.
