For an insolite weekend in Berlin, here is a list of ideas about where to sleep, where to party, where to take a drink? Where to eat, and where to pass the evenings.
Where to sleep?
For your stay, you have the choice between two hostels, Insolite, they are, saving money furthermore is even better.
1- A Soviet DDR Hostel
Being welcomed by a portrait of Lenin is quite confusing. Everything else is in tone. Precisely, the gray and brown tones. Outdated, socialist, minimalist. Another idea of the vintage. A unique experience, the GDR in its juice.
2- The Michel Berger Hotel
At first, The Hotel has no link with The french Pianist and Singer Michel Berger. The trendy hostel is located in a former factory. The cozy hostel offers true unusual experiences. Each room is different in every detail.
Where to have fun?
3- The giant Karaoke in Mauerpark
Singing in public and open air, that promises an original afternoon. Amid Mauerpark, a vast green area in which stands a famous flea market on Sundays, it is a kind of Roman circus in the open. In the center, in Sundays good weather, a karaoke is setting up and the stands are full of curious. The bold volunteers sing the tune of good mood.
4- A visit to Berliner Grüselkabinett that give the creeps
A haunted bunker! Mass of cold and austere concrete with an uninviting aspect, this former shelter for travelers of the nearby station is being inhabited by ghosts. We push the vice even further, you can also go to the show in the tone of this scary place, a show about medieval medicine and practices … Creepy, No??
Where to take a drink?
5- Going to The Spree Badeschiff
The Badeschiff, a floating pool on the Spree is to discover as soon as the weather permits, it’s a real beach in the heart of Berlin. Like any respected beach, there is a beach bar!
6- Boating and Biergarten in Treptow Park
The Treptow, a huge park crossed by the spree river. Small resting on the grass and boat tour on the calm waters that we cross to continue the appetizing activities in a Biergarten (beer garden) on the island.
7- On roof of a shopping mall, A beach, The Deck 5
Deck 5, the highest beach bar in town. Perched on the roof of a shopping center, the sky replaces the blue of the sea. With a panoramic view, a lounge atmosphere, and white sand, you relax in this haven of peace before returning to the noise of the city.
Where to eat?
8- A delirious dinner at White Trash
The White Trash looks like a Chinese restaurant. Recovered as such, laced with a lush decor and colorful elements to hard-rock influences, country, glam, punk and more. We taste a famous burger as good as generous and attend to the live file on the ground floor, dancing in the basement, and, why not, for a ride by the tattoo parlor to finish.
Where to dance?
9- Waltz and disco at Clärchens Ballhaus
The Warm atmosphere of Clärchen Ballhaus, a former dance hall of the GDR, charming place where people come to eat pizza, dancing on waltzes or disco, drink or just have a good time in the leafy beer garden listening to live music under the lanterns.
10- A crazy night in Russian disco Kaffee Burger
A little more for the road. Before going to bed, don’t miss the evenings Russendisko Kaffee Burger, straight out of communist years with the period decor and the Soviet frenzied music. Traveling in time and scenery is guaranteed.
