Edi­tor’s Note

Where Berlin - - Contents - SOLVEIG STEIN­HARDT EDI­TOR, WHERE BER­LIN

There isn’t just a lot to see in Ber­lin. There’s also a lot to do. In which other city can you rent a raft and sail around the canals for a whole week­end? Or peek into draw­ers in­side the pri­vate homes of eclec­tic artists? Or have a pic­nic on the run­ways of an air­port? Ber­lin in­spires ad­ven­ture, and this month we’ve put our heads to­gether to guide you through the city's most ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ences (p. 10).

But Ber­lin is also a city of nightlife. For un­de­cided nightowls, we com­piled a (slightly) sci­en­tific quiz that will help you choose the per­fect af­ter-dark des­ti­na­tion, from a clas­si­cal con­cert to a wild night of techno (p. 14). And since sum­mer­time of­ten means fam­ily time, we also thought about all you par­ents vis­it­ing Ber­lin with young off­spring. We all love chil­dren, but we also re­ally love to re­lax, don’t we? Turn to page 18 for a list of par­ent-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties that'll keep the chil­dren happy.

And there's much more to see and dis­cover this month: re­mem­ber, it's still summer, so pick any sunny day, grab your bathing suit, and run to the Sch­lacht­ensee Lake for a dip in the wa­ter sur­rounded by na­ture. For more ur­ban views, head to the Arena Bade­schiff float­ing pool in Kreuzberg, made from an old in­dus­trial barge. En­joy!
