      • Bonanza Coffee Roastery - great coffee where they roast their own bean, in a cute courtyard. Have no wifi but can still work on laptop.

    • Mitte
      • The Barn - OG coffeeplace of third wave. Nice. Yuzu coffee not the great. Not awesome to work with laptop but nice to visit
      • Ben Rahaim - Amazing coffeeplace, rose latte recommended, in really nice courtyard, probably less of a work space
      • st oberhalz - Gets crowded but 2 story cafe meant for co-working. Good free wifi, open till 7pm, and have an awesome drink that 80% oat foam
      • Cafe am Neuen See - Awesome beer garden/cafe. Really nice in evenings, next to nature and lake with row boats. Famous for their bread. Very good vibes and close to zoo
    • Prenzular Berg:
      • Zeit fur Brot - Incredible bakery. Get the cinnamon bun it just melts in your mouth. Eat everything here. Recommended.
    • Restaurants:
      • Kreuzberg
        • Doyum - great turkish food, huge portions, reasonable prices, amazing hummus
        • Basmah - sudanese street food, insanely cheap and huge portions. Great snack/late night food. The peanut sauce is awesome
        • Fes - Awesome food, incredible mezzes and good meat. Get the mixed plate. Reservations open a month in advance. Nice vibe
        • Biererei Bar & Vintage Cellar - cool high class beer “bar” that has a huge array of beers on tap and in the cellar. Older vibe
        • Albatros Bakery - incredible bakery with beautiful pastries, sandwiches, and bread.
        • Brezel Berlin - honestly eh pretzels. Very quaint
      • Mitte
        • Kin Za - georgian food, really good food, nice interior, big portions
        • Tajikistan tearoom - pretty cool tea room, not anything super fancy, mostly Russian style food but nice vibes
        • House of wonder - nice cafe to eat, japanese inspired. Nice space but not incredible
    • Museums/ Things to do:
      • Neues Museum - Classic, has amazing Egyptian collection with Nefertiti's busts
      • Pergamon Museum - beautiful architecture, not to big, lots of cuneiform tablets
      • C /o Museum - photograph museum, smaller side with two large exhibitions but interesting layout and choice
      • Aquarium Berlin - Awesome aquarium, cool selection of amphibians and stingrays
      • ka De Ve - I thought it would be overrated but actually super fun. Go to the 6th floor for an array of fancy food and chocolates
      • Krumme Lanke - Fun lake and super convenient to get to from the u3. Walk across the lake a bit till you find a nice spot.
      • Teufelsburg - highly recommended! Once you get near it it will be a short 20 minute hike up, then you get to an old abandoned NSA spy station from the cold war with incredible graffiti. Cash only tickets (around 8 euros) but definitely worth it.
      • Contemporary Art Museums - There are two, I recommend the one outside of Mitte (near jewish museum). Good size, and interesting exhibitions, especially about berlin art progression through the decades
    • Markets:
      • Markthalle Neun - open most days, but on Thursdays they have “Street Food Nights' ' starting at 17:00. Highly recommended, amazing food with reasonable prices and large variety.
      • Friedrichshain Flea Market - IN the middle of the boxi garden, the flea market is open on Sundays, with a small but nice array of clothes and random goods.
      • Flea Market at RAW compound - amazing market also in Friedrichshain open on Sundays. Lots of people just sell their old clothes, so you get known brands for super cheap prices.
      • Maur Park - So fun! Lots of live music and cool stalls. Gets crowded but also brings a blanket and sits by the park.
      • Thai Market at Prenzeleur Park - A bit far but worth it. Feels very authentic but extremely well organized. There are bathrooms and available drinking water. Bring reusable plates/tupperware and they will use it (recommended!). There’s also a small flea market nearby on saturday.
