A Mini Guide to Berlin

September 26, 2019

My Mini Guide to Berlin. We popped to the city for three days, but this was actually our 4th time in the city! We’ve always gone for work but this time it was all holiday! Check out where to stay, vegan places to eat and cute vintage stores in the city. I already can’t wait to go back.

Where to Stay

25 hours Bikini Berlin – This hotel is honestly one of the loveliest places I’ve ever stayed. The rooms are industrial but well thought out, and even though the rooms are small, they are full of character! The hammock was Richs favourite part obviously! The views either look out into the city or over the Zoo. Check out the Monkey bar on the top floor, whilst you are there. The hotel is part of Bikini Berlin, a really cool shopping centre, it has pop up stores and a lil open restaurant area with loads of places to pick from.

Mondrian Suite Apartments – Right beside Checkpoint Charlie, the apartments are perfect if you are looking for a central point to explore Berlin. The apartments all have their own balcony and a grocery store is across the road so it’s perfect if you want to grab breakfast with a view before heading out!

Vegan Places to Eat

Brammibals Doughnuts – Not just an instagrammable doughnut shop! I mean they do make the best vegan doughnuts I’ve ever had, but they also make sandwiches, so it’s the perfect stop for breakfast. We had the blt & the grilled cheese to share… followed by allll the doughnuts. The salted caramel will haunt my dreams forever it was so good.

Sons of Mana – If you do pop into Biniki Berlin you need to stop by Sons of Mana. They make amazing Poke Bowls and have standard vegan options or you can build your own!

Lily Burger Express – Do not go to Berlin without a trip to Lily burger. The best vegan burger I have EVER had, hands down. You can make any of the burgers vegan, and they have a few fake meat options. I went for the beyond burger and the bbq burger with fries. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Swing Kitchen – This is a great lunch spot. The chicken wrap was fantastic and if you are hungry get the meal option, fries and a drink for like €9! More of a diner-style it’s good for a quick bite.

Neni Resturant – Located in 25 hours Berlin. The restaurant is on the same floor as the Monkey bar, which is a great place to grab a cocktail! The vibe is really relaxed and the food is fantastic. I had the polenta and shared hummus and pitta. The Reisling is fantastic too, but I think that’s true of most places in Berlin tbh!

Vintage stores

Neuzwei – A chic minimalist vintage store. Great if you are looking for an addition to your wardrobe that will basically go with everything.

Rianna In Berlin – Amazing vintage designer pieces, the store is well-curated and beautifully laid out. It is pricey but worth it if you are looking for that one amazing item.

Pick N Weight – There are loads of locations in Berlin! The items are colour coded and then you weigh them to find out the price! More of a rummage but you can find some really cool bits.

Humana – Half second-hand store half vintage store it’s great for having a rummage and it’s cheap as chips! We went to the one on Oranienburger Str and I picked up a really cute 70s jacket for €14! Total bargain.

I hope you enjoyed my lil Mini Guide to Berlin!
