Stroll around in Markthalle 9
If you’re like me and love food, then you’re going to love this place. A lovely food market that serves food from all over the world. Here you can eat local food, Egyptian street food and also vegan burgers, yummy! In addition to that, the market also sells products that you can bring home.
My best tip before going to this market: Come here hungry!
Visit Tempelhof Freiheit Park
If you have more than just a couple of days in Berlin, then I recommend you to visit Tempelhof Freiheit Park. A park for different activities, that many locals and tourist like to visit when the weather allows.

Brandenburg Gate, the signature attraction of Berlin, was built in 1791 and is today a must-go spot for all photographers. The gate dates back 300 years and has played different kinds of roles in the history of Berlin. It’s been a symbol of peace, war, victory, terror and war during those years – and since 1989 it’s been a symbol for the reunification of Germany.
