ROGACKI

Part deli, part food market, this former stable has

place to pick up fresh food and drink to go, or stay

and eat in the bustling atmosphere at the stand-up

tables. Polish delicacies as well as oysters, wine and

smoked fish are specialities but there are hundreds

of different cured meats, cheeses and vegetables

being prepared at dozens of counters.

9:00 am - 7:00 pm; Fri 8:00 am - 7:00 pm; Sat 8:00

FAT TIRE TOURS

While it is impossible to miss the proliferation

of on-demand electric scooters and bikes by

the likes of Lime and Jump on the streets of

Berlin, there is still merit in signing up for one

of the many traditional bicycle tours offered by

companies such as Fat Tire Tours. From a very

inexpensive three-hour option – during which

one can still see most of the city’s highlights

like the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

Cathedral, Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint

Charlie – up to longer more speciality trips

highlighting food and drink, or WWII sites,

cycling tours are an ideal option if you want to

combine exercise with expert tour of the city.

Opening hours: Everyday, 9:30 am - 8:00 pm

Museums & Exhibitions

URBAN NATION

MUSEUM FOR URBAN

CONTEMPORARY ART

Two years since opening its doors in

Bülowstrasse as the formal base of Berlin street

art collective Urban Nation, this art gallery has an

impressive collection of street and contemporary

urban art, and is located in a part of the city

whose walls are already adorned with public

works.

The architecture and exterior surfaces are

canvasses themselves, turning the building into

an artwork in its own right. The interior of the

museum, designed by Graft Architects, moves the

street indoors with a catwalk stretching across the

entire two-storey interior, allowing the exhibited

works to be observed both from a distance and

close up. Pieces by world famous artists like

Banksy and Shepard Fairey sit alongside cuttingedge

newcomers in the permanent collection.

Opening Hours:

Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

SOVIET MEMORIAL

TREPTOWER PARK

2019 sees the 30th anniversary of the end of the

Berlin Wall. While memories of Berlin’s division

are fading with each passing year, memorials

to these darker times in the city’s past remain,

including the Soviet Memorial in Treptower Park

where 7,000 soldiers are also buried.

The memorial to the 80,000 soldiers that died in

the fight again National Socialism is a boulevard
