Berlin treats its visitors to a huge number of lively plazas, often enclosed with historic architecture and filled with pavement coffee shops, niche boutiques and charming restaurants. In the heart of the Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhood, the precious Kollwitzplatz square is famously a hub for intellectuals and artists, and increasingly the city’s upper-class as it experiences rapid gentrification. There’s plenty to entertain, both within the square and in the surrounding streets, such as the water tower and the striking redbrick Rykestrasse Synagogue, one of the oldest in Berlin. There are also a number of high-end clothing stores, selling local designers, such as Beckmann, Mathia and M-45 fashion Lounge. Perhaps the highlight of the square is the lovely organic market that visits twice a week, where you can pick up local produce or stop for lunch at one of the many hot food stalls. Favourites include the clay-oven pizzas, waffles and fresh noodle dishes.
Treat your kids to a trip to teddy bear heaven at the Steiff Gallery Berlin, in Kurfurstendamm. The company was established back in 1880 by German-born Margarete Steiff who named her creations after the American president Teddy Roosevelt. The now world-famous cuddly toys make perfect gifts for little ones and even if you don’t end up buying one, a visit to the flagship store will keep them happy before you head to other museums and galleries for yourselves.
