A collection of insider tips from Berlin concierges.
What does your perfect day look like? “I like to immerse myself in the history of Berlin by gliding through the city’s waterways on my stand up paddle board.” – Carina Gerber, The Ritz- Carlton Berlin “After a hearty breakfast at the Literaturhaus on Fasanenstraße, I'd go on a bicycle ride along the beautiful banks of the Spree in Treptower Park. Then dinner at Savignyplatz, followed by drinks on the terrace at Monkey Bar overlooking Charlottenburg to round off the day.” - Marc Schnabel, Kempinski Hotel “I consider every day as perfect, an opportunity to learn something new. My city never sleeps, and this never- ending chance to discover gives me great joy.” - Marc Schiffer, The Ritz- Carlton Berlin “Breakfast at Anna Blume in Prenzlauer Berg followed by a private boat tour along the seven lakes around Wannsee. Lunch break in Potsdam, then dinner at Volt restaurant.” – Philipp Stopp, Regent Berlin “My perfect day starts with a sleep-in and late breakfast at my favorite coffee bar, Coffee Cult on Bergmannstraße. Afterwards, I’ll grab my bike and ride through the multicultural streets of the Kreuzberg and Neukölln districts to discover the newest hotspots. Around noon, I’ll have a quick lunch at Curry 36 before relaxing at Liquidrom spa. In the evening, I’ll watch a movie at the newly renovated Zoo-palast, followed by a leisurely Vietnamese dinner at the Saigon- Green.” – Aykut Kanbak, Grand Hyatt Berlin “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 (Budapesterstr. 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).” – Tim Sachse, Hilton Berlin “A late breakfast in Prenzlauer Berg and a visit to the nearby fleamarket at Mauerpark, followed by a walk on Museum Island and dinner on the terrace at The Grand.” – Swen Roessler, Grand Hyatt Berlin “I like to meet friends for breakfast in one of the city’s many cafés. Refueled, I enjoy walking through the districts of Berlin, because every neighborhood has its own unique character to discover. I also like visiting the city’s many galleries to let the art inspire me.” – Gerhard Buskies, Hilton Berlin
