This Mecca for photography enthusiasts is open daily!

P&T

At P & T (which stands for paper and tea), you don’t simply taste the fine, rare teas from Nepal, Vietnam or China, but are initiated into the world of tea and tea culture by owner Jens de Gruyter. The two Zen-inspired stores in Berlin- Mitte and Charlottenburg also sell accessories and fine-quality paper. Take your time for this exquisite journey of discovery.

Andreas Murkudis

Design, aesthetics, style, quality and tradition – these are the criteria by which Andreas Murkudis selects the products he displays like art objects in his 1,000-square-metre AM Store inside a historical backstreet building. Big fashion labels (women’s and men’s) are for sale along with unique, unknown designer items. AM Möbel + Architektur is to be found right next door at Potsdamer Strasse 77.

A must-visit!

Where to stay
Das Stue
An elegant boutique hotel of the extra luxurious kind located in a quiet spot in the midst of bustling Berlin – with exclusive access to the zoo. The former Royal Danish Legation has been superbly renovated and furnished by the well-known designer Patricia Urquiola in a style that is at once restful and exciting. An exquisite photo collection delights the eye and Catalan chef Paco Pérez’ culinary skills indulge the taste buds. A true haven of comfort and well-being.

Suite. 030
You are planning a longer stay in Berlin? You wish to stay in a luxury private apartment that provides perfect service? Then the exclusive Suite.030 accommodation agency is who to turn to. Its portfolio includes stylish business apartments, spacious luxury flats (featuring private art collections!) or penthouses with beautiful rooftop terraces. Excellent service is part of the bargain. Perfect for a week of partying or simply a trip for two to Berlin.
Soho House
The Soho House in Berlin of Soho House & Co, which was founded by Nick Jones for the international creative crowd in London in 1995, has been one of the prime meeting points in the city for six years now. During Fashion Week, the Berlinale or Gallery Weekend, this is the place to be: downstairs in the new restaurant Cecconi’s, in or by the rooftop pool, or in The Store, the concept store right next to the lobby. The more creative your look, the better.

Nhow Berlin
If you don’t like pink, prefer the music to be turned down low and are not in the mood for a party, this is not the place for you. The Nhow hotel on the Spree is colourful, merry and loud. Furnished in a pop art style by eccentric interior designer Karim Rashid, the Nhow is THE place to be for the young and young at heart who love concerts, art, fashion and shows (it all happens in-house!). A symphony in shades of pink.

What to see
Le Petit Royal
A lovely mermaid by Floris Neusüss graces the bar of this new-born sister of Berlin’s famous Grill Royal restaur­ant. The new restaurant is called Le Petit Royal and lives in an elegant old corner house in the west of Berlin. This is a place to come back to again and again, thanks to the calm cosiness created by wooden floors, long, upholstered benches and the surprising contemporary art on the walls. The menu lists an exquisite selection of steak, fish and seafood dishes – there is something for everyone.

Richard
The location may not be great, but what appears on the plate before you is well worth a trip to Köpenicker Street, where the Swiss host and artist Hans Richard and the Swiss chef Till Bühlmann celebrate an exciting and award-winning French cuisine. The new interior of this 100-year-old establishment is impressive, too: glasswork suspended from the coffered ceiling, stylish, upholstered bench seating, a lot of art – and plenty of great atmosphere.

Dudu 31
If you are looking for an uncomplicated Asian restaur­ant serving excellent food in Charlottenburg, you will find much to please the palate – and the eye – here. Run by Chi Cao Hanh and her brother Nam Cao Hoai, DUDU31 (the original DUDU is located on Torstrasse in the east of the city and popular among Hollywood stars) offers its guests a wide range of dishes and a young and trendy crowd of patrons.

Panama
Panama is the new and critically acclaimed hangout for cre­atives. The friendly, two-storey establishment is situated in a newly renovated courtyard on Potsdamer Strasse. The inter­iors are fresh, bright and with an air of the exotic. In summer, the courtyard with its small bar (soon to be an oyster bar!) is not to be missed. Cordial staff serve exquisite cuisine full of delicious surprises. This place is a must!

It is time to decelerate! Here is a place where you can surrender to sustainable pleasures. For almost a year now, the young restaurateur and sommelier Ivo Ebert has been treating his guests – very successfully – to regional delicacies. Many ingredients come from the restaurant’s own garden, are brilliantly prepared and beautifully presented. Lunch is eaten at street level, while dinner is served one floor below. The motto: Free your taste!

Dottir
Dóttir means daughter in Icelandic. The newest addition to the must-go restaurants in East Berlin is named after its charming and exceptionally talented young Icelandic chef Victoria Eliasdóttir. In an establishment that once stood vacant, with old wood floors and flaky walls (perfectly fixed!), Victoria whips up ingenious Nordic-Icelandic specialities. Cool and straightforward. And the multi-course menu is a big hit.

Grosz
The Grosz is coffee house, bar, restaurant and outdoor café all in one. Service starts at 9 a.m. in the establishment’s magnificent dining space. Be it breakfast in the café or a home-made tartlet at 11, lunch or afternoon tea in the restaurant, a drink at the American bar or dinner and dessert – guests can feast in these elegant, high-ceilinged rooms until 11 p.m.

Nobelhart & Schmutzig
If you want to dine here, prepare for an unforgettable adventure: a “radical regional cuisine” that the average gourmet has never tasted quite this excellent way before, a very special ambience, and Billy Wagner, the 34-year-old star sommelier and owner of the Michelin-starred restaurant. Together with chef de cuisine Micha Schäfer, he conjures up a single unique menu each evening – without pepper, olive oil, chocolate or lemon (“none of those grow here …”).
