Berlin Summer 2015: Haubentaucher Urban Pool & Events Space

Posted on by admin Posted in Bars, Clubs, Drink, Learn, Read, Street Art | Leave a comment

In the summer 2013 it was the rooftop bar of Klunkerkranich and the beginning of street food craze at Bite Club. In 2014 the street food trend continued at the super popular Neue Heimat. But what will be the trend location for summer 2015 where hip Berliners can stand in long lines, pay inflated prices and be seen? Like with Klunkerkranich in 2013, Mogli Oak Berlin has a pretty solid prediction.

I’m Hungover and Bored Sundays: Do Communists Have Better Sex?

Posted on by admin Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The Cold War was a time of competition. Capitalism Vs Communism. For the players on each side, they both wanted to show the other, and the rest of the world, that their system was indeed the superior one. This competition had many elements related to things like military, economy, power, freedoms and growth. Then there were oddities like sporting success and the space race. But competitions existed elsewhere, away from the governments and systems eyes, in the bedrooms of the people themselves. The following documentary ‘Do Communists Have Better Sex‘ sheds a little light on which systems flag rose best in a bedroom situation.

5 Alternative Ways To Celebrate The Fall Of The Berlin Wall

Posted on by admin Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Everybody knows of the Lichtgrenze and today’s celebratory concert featuring Paul Kalkbrenner at Brandenburger Tor, but there are a million other ways to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of The Berlin Wall. Here are 5 alternative ways to celebrate.

1. Eat Bananas… with the skin on!

Everyone has heard the joke/(story?) of how when East Germans came across to the West for the first time, people offered them bananas and because they had never eaten one before, they started eating them with the skin on! Well, why not reminisce today and see if it tastes any good!

Best Views of Berlin: Zionskirche

Posted on by admin Posted in Places, See | Leave a comment

If you were to ask someone to translate the German word Berg into English, the common response would be mountain. Saying that, if you were to then look at a map of Berlin, which includes neighbourhood names like Kreuzberg, Schoeneberg and Prenzlauer Berg, you would assume it is quite a mountainous city. In reality, it is more like a lumpy pancake where some of those small yet significantly enough sized lumps (or Berg’s) give great views over the rest of the pancake surface. One such lump is Weinberg that is adorned with the beautiful Zionkirche to where a wonderful view of Berlin can be achieved.

Best Burgers in Berlin: Shiso Burger

Posted on by admin Posted in Burgers, Eat | Leave a comment

Remember 5 years ago when you could more or less count decent burger joints in Berlin on one hand? Oh how the times have changed! But now because of the abundance of burger joints, creativity and fusion cooking ideas have been adopted by many joints wanting to distinguish themselves from rest. Because of this, new tasty burger creations are sprouting up around the city in the form of places like, two of my favourites, Piri‘s and Ban Ban Kitchen. But if you are after an equally creative and tasty burger in Mitte, I recommend trying Shiso Burger.

Berlin Getaways: Iceland Part 1

Posted on by admin Posted in Europe, Travel | Leave a comment

I have traveled extensively around Europe and the world, but there has always been one country, that I have wanted to travel to for a long time, which was always thrown to the side as a holiday option mainly due to it being one of the most expensive countries in the world. However in recent years, thanks mainly to the economic crisis and new airline route competition, prices have become somewhat reasonable to get there and to also travel around. But word is out! So pack your bags now and head to the absolutely stunning country of Iceland!

Berlin Wonderland: Wild Years Revisited 1990-1996

Posted on by admin Posted in Featured Events, See, Weekend Tips, What's On Weekly | Leave a comment

Nostalgia is a common sentiment felt by many of us humans. For the people of Berlin, nostalgic thoughts seemingly consume peoples lives more than most others. But to be honest, there is a lot to be nostalgic about! Whether it be thoughts of the old wild West, the naughty nineties or even just simply 5 years ago, people have imagines of freedom, chaos and liveliness that they believe may never be seen again. However, physical images of the past often remain through photographs, and such images, of the chaotic few years post the fall of The Wall, are currently being displayed at Gestalten (Mitte) as part of the exhibition Berlin Wonderland: Wild Years Revisited 1990-1996.

Festival of Lights 2014

Posted on by admin Posted in Featured Events, See | Leave a comment

After six years of living in Berlin, I finally managed to get myself over to the historical centre of Berlin to catch a glimpse of the aptly named Festival of Lights. I have honestly never bothered with it, as I thought it would be quite boring. But I must admit, it was actually quite nice. Below are a few photos I took at this years Festival of Lights 2014.
