How does it look below Berlin’s surface ???

Themed tours  – with or without Guid – escort you through nuclear bomb Shelters, Tunnels and other Underworlds. Be ready to see & walk through secret, long forgotten bunkers, tunnels and creepy Korridors – where History took Place!

It’s scary, the tours are not appropriate for children under 7 years old!! Especially for larger groups, i recommend to make Reservation in advance.

A TOUR is about 90 Min & costs 11 €/Adult.

Ampelmann Berlin – the best Souvenir Shop !

Almost every corner Shop & Kiosk in Berlin offers Souvenirs. But The AMPELMANN Souvenir Shops are by far the best ones. The Company specialises in emotional lifestyle products with high utility value for everyone. The diversity of their product range and the quality is great!

What is so special about the Ampelmann? The green and red Ampelmens – former East German ICONS – symbolize a new, reunified Berlin. Today it enjoys a high degree of recognition and has become a well-known and amiable brand.

They also opened a Restaurant @ Monbijoupark an der Spree. Spring is close, time to check it out:

Berlin, the capital of Germany offers a wide range of culinary delights from all around the World!

Many People see Berlin as a abandoned and run-down City. Do not get fooled, because that’s what Berlin stands for: Urban, Edgy, Kreative & Low Profil. Usually most of the Hip Places are not immediately visible, they are hidden and not open to whoever would like to enter. Berlin is a very busy City with a high Business & Tourism Traffic. In 2013 more than 11,3 Millionen Guest were counted.  On top of that, Berliners are very outgoing. Most of the Berliners are Artist and do not labour under a 8 -5 pm job. Therefore there is practically no way to get a table without Reservation, especially on Weekends.

My recommendations for FINE DINING in Berlin (most of them located in Berlin Mitte):

1. The Grand –  With their very own Zigarre Lounge & Bar

4. Crackers – transformed from a Club to a hip Restaurant

Entering through a black metal Door located on the Friedrichstrasse, walking down a corridor (that looks like the Back Entrance for suppliers), passing through the kitchen to enter Berlin’s hippest Restaurant. One of the few Places where you are allowed to smoke (at the Bar thoug).

Address: Crackers | Friedrichstrasse 158 | 10117 Berlin



5. Borchadt – The hobnobbing Spot for the Rich & Famous

Berlin is a great place for Shopaholics.

Every single Fashion Addict will find something here. No matter if Street Style, Urban,Burlesque, 60’s or High End Fashion. BERLIN has it all! The commercial stores & brands JUST AS funky, unique stores & boutiques with edgy & up-to-date Fashion, run by local and foreign designers.

Berlin’s Main Shopping Areas:

1. The Area of Kurfürstendamm
Here you find all known brands you might be looking for. From Bershka, Mango, H&M, Zara, Diesel, Kooples, Cos, BCBGMAXAZRIA up to Hugo Boss, Dior, Valentino etc.

In some of the side streets and around the Savginyplatz you will find small, individual Boutiques. For example:
– Uhlandstraße
– Knesebeckstraße (leading to the Savignyplatz)

KaDeWe – Kaufhaus des Westens
The biggest and oldest department store in Germany. Here you find ONLY High End Products (Beauty, Fashion, Food etc.)

2. The Area of Friedrichstraße
Very close from the famous and historical Brandenburger Tor. Here you have Stores like Massimo Dutti, Montblanc & Maurice Lacroix. This Area is surrounded by luxury Hotels, like the Adlon and numerous Bars, Restaurants (Borchardt Restaurant- famous for their Wiener Schnitzel) and Cafes.

GALERIA Lafayette
It’s the Berlin Branch of the very exclusive Parisian department store. It is packed with high end products from perfumes, clothing to accessories – for him & her! After shopping you might enjoy the wide range of French Specialities @ their very own Lafayette Food Counter.

3. Hakescher Markt – for unconventional People

That is rather a Shopping Place for the unconventional Shopaholic. Stores like MCM, Karl Lagerfeld and Boutiques with edgy, very distinguished Products and Fashion. The Stores are presented differently, each Boutique has it’s very individual touch! Even if your not so much interested in Shopping, it’s a great Area to walk through, do some Window Shopping and have a Coffee or Eat. This Area is very artistic. You will pass Art Galeries, Cinemas, hidden Places, Restaurants and some Bars. From there it is only a 10 min walk to Rosenthaler Platz, which is a crowded and popular Night Hotspot in Berlin.

4. Mall of Berlin – 270 Shops
If the weather turns cloudy and rainy probably the best Shopping Place is the Mall of Berlin. Located directly next to the Leipziger Platz, one of the city’s main tourist attractions. The Mall has 270 Shops, practically it contains all the famous commercial brands (from H&M to Marc Cain).



Damn……….this Breakfast satisfied all my Needs considering the aspects of Flavour & Variety!

HEJ PAPA is a small Breakfast & Lunch Gourmet in the middle of Hamburg City. At the first sight it seems very plain and rustic, the decoration simple, a few big community tables and the counter in the middle of the Location with an OPEN KITCHEN kitchen. The Menu is short but diverse. They really care about the food quality and serve & sell selfmade Bread Buns, Marmelade & Co. Their Quitten (Quinces) Marmelade & Goat Cheese are the BEST!

A big Breakfast Plate (enough for 2 People) costs 10,50 Euros – no Beverages included.


Address: Hej Papa, Feinkostgeschäft, Poolstraße 32, 20355 Hamburg
