Summer days usually start with a nice cup of coffee at one our favorite Berlin specialty coffee places. Here is a comprehensive Map with all of our favorites! They also serve some delicious light breakfast and brunch options to get you going.
Before going about town it is always a good idea to spray on some of that beautiful eau de toilette, called Berlin Summer – so delicious! I mean…that name alone already puts a smile on our faces. We also love some cool accessories! Who doesn’t? To go with your summer dress you might want to try this fun Felicious necklace and rock it paired with one of the hot Lilienthal watches.
You will also need a stylish Berlin summer essential bag to put your keys, money etc. How about this beautiful bag by Marin et Marine? It’s made out of organic cotton and comes in different, beautiful colors.
How about pausing during the day and enjoying a snack, lunch or beer at the most amazing Community Garden complex in Berlin? Find tips on where to find it on our Tempelhofer Park exploration guide.
The Berlin sun (especially during summer) can be quite strong, so make sure to explore the city wearing amazing sunglasses. We definitely recommend the ones by Papp up. Poet is a model, that’s not only great looking, but also a 100% UV proof, scratch free and super strong. You can even accidentally sit on it and won’t break.
One of the fun things to do in Berlin during the summer is to gather friends along the Landwehrkanal, chat and drink the night away. So, how about carrying that special Berlin made vodka (in convenient sizes). Add that juice or soda and watch the sun set. Here are a few great locally made options to inspire you.
Escape to one of our favorite lakes or parks and spend a quiet afternoon with a good read. Elsewhere is a beautiful journal, dedicated to places. drifting excursions through city suburbs and journeys on foot along the ancient old ways; written sketches of airports and market squares, forests and riverbanks; the legends that linger on mountainsides and the folklore of the flatlands; the everyday realities of island communities and the streetlife of city neighbourhoods… amazing!
The options are endless, but we thought we’d give you some inspiration to take your Berlin summer experience to the next level! We hope you enjoyed it and keep checking back for more Berlin made designs as well as ideas on things to do in this city we all love.
