the days are long and the nights are hot! If you want to see a great movie with English subtitles or in English language go to the open air cinema Kreuzberg!! @ Marianneplatz 2!!
After watching a movie you can stay in Kreuzberg to explore this cool neighborhood. A lot of nice bars and clubs are within walking distance from the open air cinema!

3. The Volkspark am Friedrichshain
is a very big park with a lot of different things to see and do. There is a fairytale-fountain, a sportpark, a beach-volleyball-area and a open air cinema!
It is perfect for jogging, pickniks, or just a nice and relaxed strawl. In the middle youll find Friedrichshains highest hill, which provides a 78-metre high view over Berlins flat terrain. The hill was actually man-made to cover up a destroyed anti-aircraft bunker from World War II, as well as several tonnes of bombed out rubble.
4. Badeschiff Berlin
By far the most hip swimming pool in town! Also it is the most extraordinary swimming pool Berlin knows. It is floating on the river spree!

Together, the Wannsee Lake and the surrounding Grunewald and Düppel forests form one of the most popular recreational destinations in southwest Berlin. The Wannsee, which is actually a large bulge of the Havel River, offers a wide variety of excursions and leisure trips to the Brandenburg countryside. The Berlin Stern- and Kreisschifffahrt boat tour service is located directly in front of the Wannsee S-Bahn station.

10. Deck 5
a rooftop beachbar….a bit difficult to find, that´s why its still a bit of a secret spot, which is cool. Go to the Schönhauser Arcaden shopping mall. Take the elevator to the 5th floor…and there you´ll have it: sun coktails and a great view…
Enjoy your stay in Berlin!
