My guide to Berlin

I was going through a very hard moment in my life when I visited Berlin last year. I remember that I didn’t appreciate the city right away. It took me some time. I had to take a step back and look again with different eyes. And, then, suddenly I was mesmerized by the electricity, artistic vibe, and youthfulness this city exudes. Fernando Pessoa said ‘First it’s strange, then it gets into you’. And that’s how I feel about Berlin! The places you will find listed below are some of the places I loved and absolutely recommend! This post will be updated every time I go back!

Shakespeare and Sons 
Warschauer Str. 71, 10243 Berlin

Shakespeare and Sons began in Prague in 2002 in a former brothel in the Vrsovice neighborhood, eventually relocating to the charming Mala Strana district to accommodate the ever-growing book collection. In 2011 we opened a second branch in Berlin’s Prenzlauerberg, and in 2014 moved again to Friedrichshain to take over the historical bookstore at Warschauerstrasse 74. We also own and operate the Fine Bagels bagel bakery and cafe alongside the book business. Come visit us for a read and a bagel!

Curious Fox is an English language bookshop and cafe in Berlin-Neukölln, selling new and used books, stationery and postcards. I really loved this place! Such a vintage vibe!

Dussman das KulturKaufhaus
Friedrichstraße 90, 10117 Berlin

Their English Bookshop presents Germany’s largest selection of novels and non-fiction books in English on 2 floors. The International Bookshop offers books in 11 languages with a focus on foreign-language children’s books. And, I bought books there, obviously!

Mauer Park
Flohmarkt im Mauerpark, Bernauer Str. 63-64, Berlin, Germany

Every Sunday the flea market at Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg gets packed with a crowd of tourists and Berliners looking for secondhand clothes, vintage bags and jewellery. I absolutely loved this park! There was this cool band playing there! Unforgettable! You can eat inside and find yourself some pretty unique items!
