We’ve talked on numerous occasions about our love for Berlin and all things Berlin, we’ve shared photos of the city’s iconic skyline (even at 2am from the terrace of the Weekend Club) and we’ve counted down to the next time we can sit opposite the Bode museum and have a bottle of Club Mate by the river. Berlin, perhaps isn’t the traditional destination to fall for, but it’s one that has a certain charm about it.
In this post, and in future posts like this, we’re going to celebrate the very best and most inspirational of bloggers and the most worthy of reading blog posts about Berlin. As ever, if we have missed anyone or there is an absolutely incredible Berlin blogger or Berlin travel blog post that we’ve simply missed, please do not hesitate to get in touch in the comments section below.
Covering street art to food.. let’s get stuck in!
First up in our list are husband and wife James and Zoë Glazebrook who publish beautiful photos and posts about music, fashion, social media and their lives in Berlin. This post about the “Dummkopf’s Guide to Subletting” is particularly good, and fingers crossed they’ll have some more photos of Berlin itself.
If you’re interested in street art, the following are six great posts which I think really sum up the scene well. If you’re planning a visit (and you haven’t already seen it heard about the Alternative Berlin tour (which has a street art element) then do so… but ONLY after checking out eyecandiesblog.com, the Street Art u Topia blog, the LTrain blog, this post on theimport.co.uk and the INCREDIBLE Laid-Back blog.. all well worth a look.
Next up is Berlin foodie blogger Suzi, who not only who lives in Berlin with her husband and daughter, but she also loves our (all time) favourite deli which is called Melrose and Morgan (in London’s Primrose Hill, NW1). She documents some of the best places to eat in Berlin, and boy has she eaten out in Berlin! Read her great post on the stunning Soho House hotel and restaurant or head straight to her ‘favourite list‘ which is essential if you’re planning on visiting Berlin:
Another great food blog, but thankfully featuring more than just Currywurst (which we’re huge fans of as well) is the Wednesday Chef. We really like this food blog (and how hungry is make us) and we think you will to.
Interested in the real spirit of Berlin? Let this blog, which is written by a circle of friends in Berlin, guide you. Expect beautiful photography such as this post on Burgermeister ) and Berlin Festival. Great work guys!
Cited as a Berlin memory project, Joseph Pearson (an ex-New Yorker living in Berlin) has written a wonderful collection of posts, and his photos paint a fantastic picture of Berlin. Be sure to read his post about his post on the Berlin Wall. This post is also particularly good.
More great places to eat at and enjoy in Berlin from Berlin Reified. Tuck into their superb posts on food, design and life in Berlin.
If you’re moving to Berlin or hoping to rent an office for your start up, definitely check out Silicon Allee. This is much more than just a blog, it’s a platform to bring together the German start up scene, share ideas and ultimately network with other start-up businesses. They posts about start ups and developments within the technology and VC space, discuss events happening with Beta Pitch and cover other cool things like the Unlike travel apps, which, if you have an iPhone, you should definitely download.
If you’re interested in architecture and Berlin has some incredible architecture, then definitely check out this blog and their wonderful posts like this one. Without doubt Berlin isn’t a camera shy city, so make sure you bring the charger and a big memory card for your camera.
Another obsession of ours and that’s coffee. CafeKulturBerlin is a particularly impressive (while not terribly up to date) guide to Berlin’s best independent coffee shops. A favourite of ours is Good Shot in Prezlauerberg.
And finally, while not strictly only about Berlin, the HostelBookers blog explores some of the World’s cycle friendly cities, including Berlin, and we are a little bit obsessed with the blog posts they publish. Berlin also made it onto their travel bucket list, so let’s hope they manage to get in a night out sometime soon. New Years Eves in Berlin perhaps guys?
