What to do in Berlin at night
Berlin’s got a reputation for being is one of Europe’s most exciting nightlife destinations, with West Berlin being favored by older and wealthier people, while East Berlin — Mitte and Kreuzberg catering to the younger and more alternative scene. If you’re wondering what to do in Berlin at night, here are a few ideas.
- Visit Tajikistan Tearoom
Berlin’s full of places you don’t quite expect to see — for example a central Asian tearoom — add it on your list of what to do in Berlin at night. The tearoom was actually built in the 1970s as a Tajikistan pavilion at the Leipzig trade fair. After the trade fair ended, the pavilion was donated by the Soviet Republic of Tajikistan to their DDR hosts. Somehow it ended up in Berlin! You’ll find the décor (and everything inside to be a fantastic mixture of Persian and Russian cultures). Guests sit on the floor and tea and food are served on low wooden tables. It’s a bit off the beaten track so when you take a Berlin tour with a local guide, get them to point it out to you.
- Take a Craft Beer and Brewery Tour
Germans are pretty good at brewing beer — they’ve been doing it for centuries – as far back as Roman times. So take a local beer tour and enjoy some rare beers which you might not find in main street bars. Soak up Berlin’s beer history with a tour around a micro-brewery, see what a burgeoning craft beer scene there really is in this city, and enjoy one of the fun things to do in Berlin at night. Sample different brews whilst munching on salty pretzels — the ideal accompaniment to any great German beer.
