Okay, so you’re in the capital on a Sunday and you don’t know what to do? Well, there are almost endless possibilities. Here are my top 4 tips for the city that never sleeps:
1. Open Air in Rummelsburg
Fancy a day at the beach during your city trip? You can have it all in Berlin! Go to Rummelsburg! It’s located directly at the water with sand everywhere – your perfect mini vacation if you need a break from busy city life. Enjoy a cold beer while sitting at the water and pamper your ears with nice electronic tunes from Berlin”s top DJ’s! It’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon session with friends or even by yourself – cause trust me you won’t be alone for long. Everyone is relaxed and want to hang out, dance, and enjoy the sun. Totally worth it!
Ice cream is what you want? Forget about Ben & Jerry’s! In Berlin, you can enjoy the best handmade ice cream at the “Eispiraten.” My favorite is the flavor “Grandmas Apple Pie” – to die for! It’s always crowded. Be prepared and take your time to enjoy the best ice cream in Berlin! After you eat the best ice cream in a lifetime, take a walk around the flea market, which is located directly across the street. Open every Sunday from 10-6pm.

3. Nothaft Seidel Cafe
You cannot leave Berlin until you try one of the homemade cakes at “Nothaft Seidel Café” located in a wonderful part of Berlin called, “Prenzlauer Berg.” The cafe is small, but cozy. Not only the cake, but also the interior appears to be homemade. You can sit down, enjoy a good cup of coffee and maybe try one of their vegan apple cakes for 2,60. There is always something going on. You might find yourself in the middle of a live session or just some crazy summer action. If you go there, you will enjoy the best coffee and cake in town. Experience the true Berlin lifestyle – expect not to get bored!
4. “Thai Park”
Berlin has a big Asian community. On Sundays, many Thai, Vietnamese, Philippine, and Chinese people gather in the “Preußenpark” in Wilmersdorf. They sit down in groups, cook every kind of dish directly in the park to sell as fabulous, affordable street food. Definitely worth a try, and something unexpected in a city like Berlin.
