Doner Restaurant
$
“This gritty doner kebab kiosk or "imbiss", as the German say, is the most famous in Berlin, and the line can at times reach the end of the quarter. Some say it is worth it, others are unsure, but the fact is that almost everyone in Berlin has tried it! Open everyday from 11:00. Week days until 02:00, Fridays and Saturdays until 05:00.”

Park
“After a visit to the Technical Museum, why not take a walk through the park. A former railway marshalling yard that has been redeveloped as an urban oasis in the centre of the city. A great place for kids, with basketball courts and a skate park, as well as a huge grassy area to run around in. Watch out for passing trains!”

Meal Takeaway
$$
“A few hundred meters up to street towards Sonnenallee, BBI offers great burgers. The shack is overrun on warm summer days but well worth the wait. We like the veggie burger. Recommended to eat right there, sitting on one of the few benches or just some place to sit you find around the street.”

Capitol Building
“Climbing up the dome and seeing the federal parliament at work is one of Berlin's most popular attractions. This is unfortunately not as convenient to access as it once was. It remains free but visitors need to book a few days in advance through the Bundestag website.”
