Berlin is not only the cultural and political capital of Germany but it’s also become one of the European Union’s most popular tourist destinations and a central hub for creatives, as well as the vegan capital of Europe. So, as you can imagine, finding unfurnished apartments for rent in Berlin aren’t the easiest of endeavors, but as far as European capitals or large European cities go, it is still somewhat affordable, and rental prices are more than fair — so that part is good news. Plus, it’s relatively straightforward to obtain a residence permit. Are you on the hunt for an unfurnished apartment? I’ve gathered a few tools to help you navigate the property market.

I was a bit underwhelmed the first-ever time I set foot in Berlin. I thought the city lacked in “WOW” factor and was sprawling too much and missing some form of a focal point. Some may beg to differ, but this was my first impression. So whenever I get asked for my best Berlin Instagram spots, I always find it a bit ironic.
I fell in love with being in a German nude spa at Vabali spa berlin.
I know some of my German friends would roll their eyes at me for saying that Germans love themselves a bit of mixed gender nudity. Ahh yes, the German nude spa topic, here we go. But upon visiting vabali, I think they totally do. If you’re not familiar with the Freikörperkultur, of FKK (free body culture), chances are you will after spending some time in Germany. At the very least, you will have heard of a nude spa Germany one way or another. And while some would simplify that the FKK movement was born as a form of resistance against the East German regime, nudism in Germany has its roots way further in history.
Hey Macklemore? can we go thrift shopping? Why, yes, yes, we can. Because I love thrift shopping, especially when I travel. And the best thrift shop Berlin spots to hit? Hard to say, because there are so many. When it comes to sustainable and unique shopping in second hand shops Berlin’s got it going on!
It’s no secret that Berlin has been my main squeeze for a few years now. Aside from the relatively harsh Winters, I love everything about Berlin. But depending on who you ask, you may find it can be an intimidating place, especially if visiting alone and trying to figure out what the best hotels in Berlin are for a weekend in Berlin. I came to know Berlin as the city where people went to KitKat Club naked and that was way before the city turned me into a bit of a slightly crazy person — so I was kinda wondering WTF was gonna happen there.
Looking for the best vegan burger in Berlin?
I’m vegan burger-obsessed as much as I’m a health nut. If there’s a burger on the menu, it’ll trump any organic cardboardy bird food I’d usually go for. And to say Berlin has its vegan burger game down pat is quite the understatement. Every burger joints has a vegan option. Scratch that. Every restaurant has a burger option has a vegan burger option. Berlin has more burger spots than native Berliners and my ambition to document every single vegan burger option in the city was quickly shut down by the pace at which places open and close. So, as the Berlin vegan burger scene ebbs and flows like a goddamn annoying breathing thing, this guide is getting updated with my latest discoveries and classics not to be missed.
Berlin is among the most iconic and popular cities in the world. The culture, architecture and vast neighbourhoods not only make it one of Europe’s go-to tourist spots — but also the perfect backdrop to many films, so today I wanted to list some great (and not so great…) movies about Berlin and movies set in Berlin.
I remember being at my Couchsurfing host Laura in Milan in preparation for my arrival to Berlin, about five years ago. She lived between the two cities, spent a lot of her weekends in Berlin, and kept yapping on about how free-spirited Berlin was. Specifically, she mentioned several times how wonderful it was that people were just strutting totally nude in Berlin sex clubs such as Berghain (an abandoned power plant turned into the most famous techno club) and Kitkat Berlin, getting it on in public in Central Berlin as casually as you’d sip a beer on a rocking chair on the porch of the Marina back where I’m from.
