We did a three day trip to Berlin in March and managed to squeeze in most of the sights in that time. I understand what people say when they talk about Berlin and needing two weeks there. It’s huge and there’s so much to see.
We stayed at the Mercure in Wittenbergplatz, which is just a short train ride from the city centre. It’s close to Potsdammer Platz which is a main station and you can change here to get most places. We were really lucky that our area was really buzzing on an evening so we ate locally every night after spending each day in the city. We visited all the main sites and as the weather was so good we walked as much as we could.
We arrived late afternoon so on our first night we just wanted something quick and easy. We stumbled across this amazing, independent Italian place not too far from our hotel and shared a pizza and a pasta dish. Everything was cooked fresh, the staff were amazing, and there were locals in there so we knew we’d found a good spot.
Night two was an evening meal at Ho Lo, which came up as well-reviewed online. We went not knowing what to expect but once again found ourselves surrounded by locals and enjoying some amazing food!
On our last night we wanted something quote relaxed so we went to Tommi’s Burger Joint, which we’d walked past a couple of times throughout our trip. It’s a cool chain which I think appears only in Germany, Denmark and Iceland. There were a couple of great vegan/vegetarian options for me, which all looked really good.
