what better way to relax than over a good book and a fine wine, at the Buchkantine this is all possible. Just take a book from one of the shelves and find yourself a nice seat at one of the comfy sofas.

4. Hamam Berlin

It´s getting colder outside so why not warm up a bit at the Hamam to enjoy a really nice Turkish bathing ritual…

5. Buncker Tour
Are you interested in going beyond the popular touristic sights and explore a bit more of Berlins history?
Then go for instance on a bunker tour!
There are several different bunker tours, in english, german and spanish.
Something exceptional and very interesting! A must do!
And after partying like a madman you should have a big hangover breakfast, of course!
For instance at one of my favorite cafe´s in Prenzlauer Berg, Café Hilde. They do fantastic breakfast, serve good strong coffee and it´s nice cozy and warm inside!
Located at the Metzer Straße 11, it is just a 5 minutes walk from our hostel.
This is a traditional butcher, if you like meat and sausages go here to experience the true nature of the German meat culture…. They do lunch too, traditional food, meat! For small prices! This place is famous for its traditional black pudding. High quality! This is really a nice experience! But nothing for you if you are a vegetarian!
great cozy place, it´s mainly students you will find here. getting together to drink really
great wine and philosophize in a relaxed livingroom-feel atmosphere.
the concept of the weinerei is quite unique. You ´buy´ a glass, for one euro, and then you
can fill and refill it as often as you like. Also there are little snacks the accompany the
wine. when you leave you can pay whatever you think it was worth.
Don´t go here to late, when the wine is out, its over and out!!
9.White Trash Fast Food
This is a famous and legendary rock club. The name already implies it, they also have a fast food restaurant.
serving the most delicious burgers & fries I have ever had.
What else to expect at the White Trash, great live music & a great rock´n´roll atmosphere!!
10. Tempelhofer Freiheit
after the closing down of the Tempelhof Airport in 2010 the over 300 hectare are now open to public. It is a park with a special flair. A lot of people come here to kite, skate, and cycle. Or just simply to use the big green grass area for a picnic.
