Uncommon Berlin

Once Known For Its Alternative Subcultures And Post-Cold War Ruins, Today, Germany’s Enfant Terrible Is A Polished Metropolis With An Alluring Edge

There may be few cities that wear their historical scars on their sleeve as prominently as Berlin, but the city has never been a more dynamic mix of the past and present than it is now. Contemporary artists, Michelin-starred chefs, world-class mixologists, and proprietors of indie boutiques imbue the city with a buzzing energy from sunrise until long after midnight. This is a city where you can explore the remains of a Cold War-era espionage listening station, admire Bauhaus architectural masterpieces, dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant, and attend an opera all in the same day.

From historic East Berlin’s trendy neighborhoods of Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, and Kreuzberg to Charlottenburg and the former West Berlin, insiders share the hidden spots and secret stories that will inspire you to peel back the layers of this city’s fascinating history.
