Unique things to do in Berlin
- Enjoy an evening of Berlin Food
One of the quieter, more unique things to do in Berlin, is to enjoy a meal cooked by locals. You’ll get to sample the real flavor of German food, and enjoy some great conversation along the way. It’s a fantastic way to get to know more about the city and its people too — and you’ll find Berliners are proud of their city (and so they should be), so won’t be shy talking about it. Dine
on a schnitzel cooked to perfection, a matching beer or wine and learn all about what makes Berlin an amazing place to live and visit.
- Experience the B-side of Berlin
Younger, and looking for unique things to do in Berlin? Then take a “b-side” tour — one where you can experience more of Berlin’s underbelly. Berlin, Kreuzberg in particular (during the Cold War and beyond) has a huge underground scene. One that celebrates street art, art of all kinds in fact, experimental music (Kraftwork, anyone?) as well as cutting edge theatre performances. This scene has really been a part of Berlin since the decadent ‘20s — and you can find tours that are run by locals who know the best (and safest) places to visit. Experience the Berlin that few tourists get to!
- Take a Berlin Cooking Class
Cooking’s important to all cultures, and the German’s are proud of theirs. One of the unique things to do in Berlin is a cooking class where you’ll learn that sharing a meal is just as important as cooking it. During a cooking class you’ll discover some of the history and customs that go with each dish. Traditional German food is often hearty and includes stews with meats and vegetables, accompanied by tasty bread. Don’t be shy. Ask about making a Berliner Beer Stew — most classes run by locals can be planned and tailored ahead of time to your wishes or dietary requirements.
