Tim Sachse, concierge at Hil­ton Berlin, is over­flow­ing with rec­om­men­da­tions.

What does your per­fect Berlin day look like? Pan­cakes for break­fast at CHIPPS Restau­rant (Jäger­str. 35) fol­lowed by a walk through Tier­garten, then over to the Ku’damm for shop­ping, and lunch at NENI restau­rant (Bu­dapester Str. 40). Af­ter­wards, I like to re­lax at Liq­uidrom and catch a movie at Cines­tar where they show films in their orig­i­nal lan­guage, topped off with din­ner at the Pantry restau­rant (Friedrich­str. 120) and a night­cap at the Le Croco Bleu bar ( Pren­zlauer Allee 242). When friends visit, where do you take them? I’d take them to the main high­lights: Bran­den­burg Gate, Mu­seum Is­land, Check­point Charlie, and of course I’d show them Berlin by night. Se­cret Berlin tips? Among oth­ers, the vin­tage au­to­mo­bile col­lec­tion at the Clas­sic Remise and the Kleine Nachtre­vue theater. De­scribe Berlin in three words. A must see!

Tell us about your ho­tel. The Hil­ton Ho­tel has 601 rooms and is lo­cated on Gen­dar­men­markt, the most beau­ti­ful square in Berlin. Which events do you rec­om­mend for De­cem­ber? The small Christ­mas mar­kets, the Har­lem Gospel Nights at the Apos­tel Paulus Church, and Bryan Adams at O2 World. Where are the co­zi­est spots in Berlin? The beer gar­dens and restau­rants of our city parks. What’s your fa­vorite Ger­man spe­cialty? Eis­bein (cured ham hock) with sauer­kraut, mashed peas, and pota­toes at restau­rant Max & Moritz on Oranien­straße in Kreuzberg. What dif­fer­en­ti­ates Berlin from other ci­ties? The ex­cel­lent trans­port net­work, which takes you from A to B at any time of day or night, and the rea­son­able taxi prices. Any spot you would rec­om­mend for ro­mance? The Char­lot­ten­burg Palace.
