Berlin In Your Pocket city guide


Summer is here! We braved the winter and the Christmas madness before dipping our toes into the magic of spring, but it really is the next few months that bring out the very best that Berlin has to offer. The sun does its bit as the days stretch out ever further, allowing our joy to last long into the evening. Summer in Berlin is it? You better believe it!

Berlin is a magnificent city in which to drink a beer or three, and it doesn’t get any better than enjoying the golden nectar as the sun sets in one of the city’s marvellous beer gardens. Head to page 19 for the best beer gardens and beach bars that Berlin has to offer. While you’re there, cast your eyes to the proceeding page to check out the open-air cinemas of the German capital, and get ready for a romantic date (or two). 

There promises to be plenty of late nights in Berlin this summer so it is important to keep active, either for health reasons or as an excuse to have one more beer or one more burger. We’ve put together a collection of ways to get active in the capital this summer, things you can do to combine exercise with enjoyment, aerobics with aesthetics. 

What else is on tap? The usual array of exhibitions and events that this city is so famous for, along with the continent’s best cafes, restaurants and bars. Berlin is a city of parks, rivers and lakes, and there might not be a better combination in tourism than the setting sun and this stupendous city. As usual we appreciate all feedback, be it through social media, email, or drunkenly slurred in a beer garden at closing time. We’ll be back in August with our 100th guide.
