This year, World of Coffee has partnered with the team behind the Berlin Coffee Festival to build a guide to this year's host city. To help you make the most of your time in Berlin, PHILIPP REICHEL, co-founder of the Berlin Coffee Festival, has put together a list of handy tips and recommendations for this year's World of Coffee attendees.
Berlin is one of the greenest cities in Germany. Little to big parks are spread all over the city. If you find relaxation in strolling through nice neighborhoods or little markets, you can have that in Berlin as well. Here are some recommendations if you are looking for a little retreat!
Flughafen Tempelhof / Tempelhofer Feld: Berlin’s old airport that is now the largest park of Berlin. You don’t feel like being in the city anymore when being there!
Tiergarten: Berlin’s “Central Park.” Be careful when entering, you might get lost in it because of its size. Loads of great areas for chilling and architecture/sculpture hunting, including a little Cafe (@cafeamneuensee) and a teahouse (@teehaus_berlin).
Alt-Treptow: A neighborhood that is kind of a doorstep to nature. Forests and parks everywhere. Close to the neighborhoods of Neukölln and Kreuzberg.
Wrangelkiez: One of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Berlin. Full of historical architecture and side streets with little shops.
Rixdorf: Almost more of a village than a neighborhood. Ancient side streets that want to be discovered with restaurants and cafes to explore!
Nikolaiviertel: The neighborhood where Berlin was founded. Full of museums and galleries and packed with cafes and restaurants as well.
Most of the markets in Berlin are only happening on the weekend. Here are some to visit:
Boxhagener Platz | Sunday fleamarket
Markthalle Neun | Friday & Saturday farmer’s market
Mauer Park | Berlin’s biggest flea market with infamous karaoke sessions on Sundays
