Let me backtrack to why my fiancé and I suddenly went on a trip to Europe with just 1.5 months notice. The short version of the story goes like this: I quit my job and I desperately wanted to go abroad and detox and be somewhere where I’m a complete outsider and look at art and all that stuff that detoxing entails. Somewhere in that time I got engaged, which also led to me feel like: oh, shit, I’m engaged, soon to have a wedding, with no job, but I’m spending $3,000 on a trip to Europe. Smart. So, we went to Europe, it was awesome, and I did look at art and stuff.
Our first stop was Berlin, a beautiful city with plenty of scenic parks, great museums, good food, excellent public transportation, and the added perk of stylish people with great taste. We fell in love with Berlin the moment we walked the streets of Mitte – I mean, I did at that moment. Birkenstocks and makeup-less women are the norm there!
When planning our itinerary, I found that most blogs and online reviews led us to the wrong places (especially Yelp in Berlin – Yelp reviewers who are visiting Berlin review some very average restaurants very highly). We’re into nice parks, art, design, good food and style so if you’re going to Berlin and are into the same things, hopefully this list will help you out.
