It is freezing outside, so why even bother going out? stay inside where it´s warm and cozy. We present you here a list of some of the coolest indooractivities in Berlin. And, okay you have to go out first, but Berlin has a good public transport system, so that shouldn´t be a problem! If you need help with how to get there, just come ask us at the reception!
1. Hamam Berlin
This is for ladies only! Located in the popular district Kreuzberg, easy to reach by public transport.
It´s getting colder outside so why not warm up a bit at the Hamam to enjoy a really nice Turkish bathing ritual…
Hamam is a bathing ceremony of the cleansing of the body and soul. Relaxation and communication in a warm and pleasant atmosphere are key elements of the Hamam culture. Here women from different cultures and walks of life work and meet.
You’ll find the Hamam at Mariannenstr. 6 in Kreuzberg
Opening hours: daily from 15h till 23h
Entrance fee: 14€ for 3 Hrs
2. Go to a Museum, for instance to the one and only Ramones Museum Berlin
Punk rock legends The Ramones come from New York, but their biggest fan might just be from Berlin. Florian Hayler collected hundreds of Ramones-related items, and attended more than 100 Ramones concerts, then decided to collect his expertise and souvenirs in a museum. It debuted in 2005, a year after the death of founding band member Johnny Ramone.
Opening Hours: Tue-Thu 8.30 am-6 pm, Fri 8.30 am -8 pm, Sat 10 am -8 pm, Sun 12-6 pm
Admission Fee: 3,50 Euro
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!
4. Pergamon Museum
One of the most popular attractions in Berlin, the Pergamon Museum is world famous for its archaeological holdings. The Pergamon, located on Museum Island, is really three museums in one – the Collection of Classical Antiquities (also on display in the Old Museum), the Museum of the Ancient Near East, and the Museum of Islamic Art. The Pergamon Museum’s monumental highlights are truly breathtaking to behold.
Am Kupfergraben 5
Opening Hours: daily 10 am -6 pm, Thu 10 am -10 pm
Admission Fee: 8,- Euro, red. 4,- Euro
5. Big hangover breakfast
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!
Kind of kitschy modern deco German Restaurant, nice ambient and friendly service. Located in the vivid WranglerKiez which is really worth a visit if you are in Kreuzberg!
They serve really nice Swabian food like for instance Flammkuchen! Also, as a big fan of Spätzle, I could really recommend their Käse-Spätzle (spätzle with cheese).
8. Go Shopping, go to Kauf Dich Glüklich
this shop is a bit different from regular shops, cause it is not actually a real shop. It is a cafe selling
the best waffles in town!! Hmm then why is it on the list of best shops, you
might wonder…. Thatʼs because almost everything inside the cafe is for sale. So if you like
the seat you are sitting on, or the artwork on the wall, you can buy it and take it home with
you. The name of the shop translated in to English means as much as buy yourself happy.
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!!
10.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!!
Enjoy wintertime in Berlin! For more suggestions on what to do in Berlin just read our blog on Berlin!
