The City Break – Berlin
Call us biased but Berlin holds a special place in our hearts. It may be home to our first store in Germany but this small city has plenty of character and lots to do during a short break. Famous for it’s independent shops, cutting edge galleries and buzzing nightlife, it’s easy to be taken in. For daytime pursuits head to one of the city’s best galleries, the Bauhaus Archive, home to an impressive collection of sculptures, furniture, prints and models. Make sure to take advantage of the city rental bikes and head to famous sites like the Reichstag and Holocaust Memorial or stop off at Tempelhofer Park for a spot of kite flying. If you’re up for shopping, Berlin’s Mauerpark flea market on Sundays is your go-to for all sorts of souvenirs, records and other rare finds.
