Oh, Berlin. You’re honestly such a beautiful city!
From 27th of July till 2nd of August I stayed in the shabby-chic-place-to-be Berlin. I got an invitation from Neon Wood, a new opened student apartment house. It is located in Friedrichshain, the cool hipster area, close to Berghain and good vegan food options. I love this area, a friend of mine is also living there, so I have been there a couple of times. It is very close to Frankfurter Tor, from where you can reach the whole city. The interior is very new and super chic. Every apartment has its own small kitchen and bathroom.
I want to share with you my short trip experiences. Luckily Martin from RSA Media surprised me a lot: my girl Olivia from London was also there. Last time I saw her was on NYE in Manchester, so I got really excited. But the best thing: not only Olivia, but also Nina, Susi, Léa and Caleb were also part of Neon Wood. We did a lot of cool things, participated on creativity workshops (I designed my own shirt and bag) and had a funny evening at the opening party on Saturday. Some workshops will take place in the future at Neon Wood as well because they want the students, who live there to engage with each other and create a strong student community.
We explored awesome vegan breakfast places, chilled at the river and did some sightseeing. I have to say a massive thank you to Neon Wood. They were so friendly and helpful and gave us a long list with things to do in Berlin or where to eat. <3
Beside staying at this beautiful place I did a lot of vintage shopping with the girls. And because so many of you asked me on Instagram what to do when you’re in Berlin, I just wanted to write down some recommendations – shopping, food and culture related.
For shopping I absolutely love Garage at Nollendorfplatz, Pick’n’weight at Bergmannstraße and Made in Berlin. For food there are so many places to go! My favorites are Organic Superfoods and Liquids, Goodies, Shakespeare and Sons and for my beloved Georgian food you should try out Schwiliko. Spot pretty architecture everywhere, get to know the difference between slavic inspired East Berlin and West Berlin. You should definitely spend at least a day for museums and culture. Classical places to visit are Reichstag, Brandenburger Tor, Mauermuseum or Holocaust-Mahnmal. Also there is a place where with loads of museums, the so called Museumsinsel. I also loved the Salvador Dalí Museum, with a lot of original artworks from the famous painter. For hanging out with your friends go to Tempelhofer Feld or Klunkerkranich.
I absolutely loved this interior at the Neon Wood lobby.
We quickly made some pictures at a photo booth to capture the Berlin memories. <3 Thank you all for making my trip so amazing!
