Note correct address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof. No doubt Berlin's best, most famous and notorious night club, 5km taxi ride (every taxi driver knows it!) or 6 min walk from the closest S-Bahn station "Ostbahnhof". With its upstairs 'Panorama Bar' and smaller venue 'Berghain Kantine' for concerts and smaller club events as well as the record label 'Ostgut Ton', Berghain is without any doubt much more than just a nightclub but a major hub for electronic music and cultural life in Berlin. Its door policy is as strict as the club is famous, try your luck, if you get in, it'll well worth it. Make sure you leave your cameras at home, otherwise they will be taken from you at the entrance. Depending on night, between 12€ - 20€ entrance fee. For further details, concerts, events and info on their record label, check out their website: http://www.berghain.de/

Mix between bar, urban beach club and community roof top garden. Amazing location on the top of a multi-story parkhouse of shopping center 'Neukölln Arcaden'. During summer, Klunkerkranich opens every day from 10am, except Sundays open from 12pm. How do you find it? From U-Bhf Rathaus Neukoelln -> a few meter further, look for entrance into Neukölln Arcaden labeled 'Post/Bibliothek', take the lift up to the 5th floor where the group exhibition is location, one further up (walk up the park house snailing road) you will find the roof of the building with its sundeck, djs, bar, snack bar and everything else you need to be happy. From the roof, you have an amazing view over Berlin on a good day. The perfect place to enjoy sun, life and a end of a working day. Great fun and highly recommended!

Food Scene
For many years my favourite restaurant in Berlin - Friedrichshain. It’s about 10 min taxi drive (10€), 40 min by foot. It serves “Alpine Cuisine”, i.e. food from the South of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. You can expect to pay around 30 Euros per person for dinner with wine and coffees, around €50 if you are having a starter and one of their delicious deserts. The quality and atmosphere is very good. They also do an excellent weekend brunch on Saturday and Sundays from 10:00 -16:00 for 15€ per person. It is highly recommended you make a reservation before going there: +49 30 29049704.

One of the first places I fell in love with when I first came to Berlin for its Berlinesse character! Fantastic place in summer, great outdoor seating along the canal, perfect spot for sunny days, lunch or cake! It's just opposite Club der Visionäre, on other side of canal. Down to earth, cranky and self-made, it may not appeal to everyone.

I love their concept of asian fusion food served tapas style on small affordable plates. A party of 4 should order 3 - 4 plates (3€/plate) each and share. Great idea! The food is very tasty and amazingly all dishes are served at the same time even if you order 10 or more different ones. You have a selections of pork, beef, chicken and vegetarian options. Cocktails tend are overpriced and quite weak.

Excellent fine dining option with one Michelin star: "Yes, this really is it, but don't be put off by the somewhat lacklustre exterior. Inside the former Köpenicker Hof, built in 1900, the fine interior has an ornate ceiling, designer lighting and artworks (the owner Hans Richard is also a painter). It provides the perfect setting for an excellent, artful and reasonably priced set menu." Choose between the vegetarian or non-vegetarian menu. Highly recommended! http://www.restaurant-richard.de/#_=_

There is a hugely intriguing story around the real-life story of its previous owner that was made into documentary film "Rollercoaster", even if you cannot enter it anymore, worth a stroll in forest to look at the dinosaurs on their backs and the Ferris wheel from the outside through the fence. Look it up on wikipedia if you want to learn about its history and get a sense of what to expect there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spreepark Or its original website from 2002 when the park ceased to exist with a collection of photos from better times: http://www.spreepark.de/fahrgeschaefte_frameset.htm

As you go over the Abteibrücke (Abbey Bridge), which is the oldest composite steel bridge in Germany, you reach the perfect spot for a picnic on the River Spree. Kulturalarm e.V., the operating company of the island, sees the place as an experimental ground for all forms of art and so there are many cultural events for young and old alike including live music every Sunday. Open seating beer garden in summer. Fanastic place to relax and chill. Around 15 min walk from my home.

Observatory opened to the public on 1 May 1896 as the Treptow Observatory to coincide with the Great Industrial Exposition of Berlin. Based on Archenhold's design it contained what was then the world's longest telescope, with a focal length of 21 m (69 ft). The Observatory was named after Archenhold at its 50th anniversary in 1946. The telescope was deactivated from 1958–1983 for repairs, and remains functional to this day.

I think this peninsula on the other side of spree is quite special, despite recent housing developments. I regularly go to its small park on the Eastern tip where you can jump into the river to cool down on hot summer days. It also has nice riverside walking path all around it if you like to escape the tourist crowds.

As a "public park" open to all citizens, Treptow Park in 1888 represented an innovation for its time. From the landing pier, visitors have the wonderful chance to discover Berlin by boat. And here also begins the beautiful, four kilometre long path along the Spree. On this promenade that is especially popular during the summer visitors will find the traditional tourist restaurant "Haus Zenner" with its large terrace. A little further on lies the island of youth (die Insel der Jugend), which leads to the Abbey Bridge, which is listed as an historic monument. Here you can rent pedal boats and rowing boats. On the other side of the Spree can be found the impressive power plant Rummelsburg and the leaning tower of the stralau peninsula, which also goes by the name of the "appendix of Berlin." Those who do not set out along the shores but instead take the road crossing over into Alt-Treptow, will find themselves on a huge lawn and play area, at whose southern end there is a large lake. In the middle of the park lies the soviet war memorial. The second attraction of Treptow Park is right next door: The Archenhold Observatory is home to the longest refracting telescope in the world.

As a "public park" open to all citizens, Treptow Park in 1888 represented an innovation for its time. From the landing pier, visitors have the wonderful chance to discover Berlin by boat. And here also begins the beautiful, four kilometre long path along the Spree. On this promenade that is especially popular during the summer visitors will find the traditional tourist restaurant "Haus Zenner" with its large terrace. A little further on lies the island of youth (die Insel der Jugend), which leads to the Abbey Bridge, which is listed as an historic monument. Here you can rent pedal boats and rowing boats. On the other side of the Spree can be found the impressive power plant Rummelsburg and the leaning tower of the stralau peninsula, which also goes by the name of the "appendix of Berlin." Those who do not set out along the shores but instead take the road crossing over into Alt-Treptow, will find themselves on a huge lawn and play area, at whose southern end there is a large lake. In the middle of the park lies the soviet war memorial. The second attraction of Treptow Park is right next door: The Archenhold Observatory is home to the longest refracting telescope in the world.
'Treptow Hafen'/'Treptow port' is one of the starting points for the very popular river boat tours, my recommendation is the 4 hour tour C1 doing the full circle of canal via Kreuzberg in the south and returning via river in the north.
