Berlin

Berlin

When you fly with Austrian Airlines to Berlin you will experience a city that has firmly positioned itself as one of the most evocative Europe. Germany's capital has been through a well-known controversial past, and evidence of this can be seen all over Berlin, in the form of museums, parks, buildings and street art. Of course, references to the past are just a small part of what makes Berlin such a captivating and desirable destination, it really does have something for everyone. Art lovers will be in their element with what is arguably the biggest and best contemporary art scene anywhere. International food gourmets are able to eat specialities from across the world, a presence which certainly in part can be attributed to the multinational, multicultural population found here. And for the younger crowd, Berlin offers some of the best nightlife in Europe!

No Hotel
You don't want to book a hotel room? Then 'No Hotel' is the right one for you. The only thing this place has in common with a conventional hotel is the fact that guests from all around the world pay for a night in a room. Otherwise, it is as if your Berliner friend has left you the keys to her flat because she is out of town.Hopefully not literally! This hotel is found on the 21st floor of an original industrialised apartment block built in 1967. The times where people were trying to flee such apartments is long gone. Amongst student circles, it is now the in-thing to move into such buildings. Here you've got the chance to find out whatever the effects of the DDR and its architectural produce are. The rich remnants of the DDR to young trendsetters have discovered the appeal of the 'plattenbau' and maybe you will too! What will help you find it? Your Berliner friend has great taste and has outfitted rooms with design classics of the period. A must see for all DDR nostalgics.

DDR Museum
Please don't touch? You won't hear this sentence in the DDR Museum. There aren't any national treasures stored in showcases, but rather exhibits that are there for you to touch so that you can experience history for yourself. The interactive museum is a lot of fun, but it also calls for visitors to consider how life really was in DDR times. It wasn't just sunny trips in Trabi wagons and plattenbau apartment blocks, but also surveillance, fear and chocolate substitutes. So that you understand how it went, take a seat in the living room of a plattenbau apartment, but watch what you say as someone will be listening.   The musuem answers the call of the DDR-nostalgia boom that Berlin has experienced in the last couple of years. The collaboration of historians has however pushed the nostalgics to the side, as this museum provides an objective and true version of the story. The exhibition pieces come from all areas of life; the home, work, recreation, holidays, fashion and culture and are nothing more as the left-overs from old DDR households. But today the kitchen cupboards are anything but private here in one of the most innovative museums in the world.

Andreas Murkudis
In former times the Tagesspiegel was based at this very place, by now Andreas Murkudis' new concept store has found its way into the big hall on Potsdamer Straße 81E.   Andreas Murkudis who owned a concept store in a historic backyard on Münzstraße in Berlin Mitte eight years ago is a passionate collector ever since. Today he presents selected products and collections on 1,000 square metres, including brands like Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela, Dries van Noten and fashion designed by his brother Kostas Murkudis. Also available in the new store: his favourite chocolate by Erich Hamann which he has sold for more than 20 years. But the range of offer exceeds fashion and design: you can find perfume, cosmetics and even liquors. The store which is seven metres high was developed by the architects' office AAS Gonzalez/Haase.

Cupcake Bakery
It wasn't all that long ago when the word 'cupcake' was a totally foreign word in this city. That however changed promptly when Carrie bit into her first cupcake at SATC. Whatever Carrie does is stylish, and many others want to follow suit, especially in Europe!That's how the small and tender cake made its worldwide debut. And it was very well accepted, thanks to the healthy demand. This is easily seen at the Cupcake bakery in Berlin, where the cupcake craze is in full swing. The marvellously colourful bonnets that the little cakes carry come in a glorious array of colours are made either with flavoured butter or cream cheese - according to your desired calorie intake.
