Prenzlauer Berg: Berlin’s Funkiest Vintage District

Prenzlauer Berg Forget the industrial fumes and the sometimes grim aesthetic of Socialist East Germany – Prenzlauer Berg is cooler and funkier than ever, thanks to a mix of gentrified neighborhoods, squats, artists’ labs, street art shops and breweries-turned-cultural centers. One of the most hidden but precious areas in the German capital is also a growing gay district, already playing host to flocks of LGBTI people from all over the world. I had the chance to explore Prenzlauer Berg at the beginning of April; the trees were blossoming, guys and girls were starting to wear summer clothes, beers and cocktails were enjoyed outdoors among the leafy avenues and the small alleys, and the mood of Berliners was on the up. For those who want to explore Prenzlauer Berg, a good starting point is the triangular open space of Kollwitz Platz. The atmosphere is gentle, especially in spring, and it’s just a short walk to the Kulturbrauerei, one of the most interesting venues in post-industrial Berlin.

Berlin is Super Gay – Nomadic Boys

Berlin, Germany - Nomadic Boys Berlin is super gay. Gayness is so well accepted in every aspect of society that you’ll find sprinkles of it everywhere. Schoeneberg is the heart of the gay community and has been since the 1920s when it became the first ever gay village – in the world. Although it was all heavily repressed during the Nazi era, it was reborn after the Berlin Wall was erected in the 1960s and has continued to thrive ever since. Alternative gay scenes have started to spring up in the East over the past 20 years since the Wall came down, particularly in Kreuzberg, Neukoelln and Friedrichshain. But Schoneberg nonetheless remains the Queen of the Berlin Scene.

#1 ROMANTIC DINNER AND CLASSICAL MUSIC CONCERT IN BERLIN

We love a good old fashioned classical music concert for a date night. This is, after all, the country who gave us the likes of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Strauss, Wagner and many more. What better setting for it than the rococo-style Charlottenburg Palace, where you can also have a 3 course meal and a tour of the Palace before the concert. This is the ideal recipe for a romantic date with your loved one. Prices start from $88 per person, but make sure you book in advance as spaces fill out very quickly.
