I like views. And especially a bird’s eye view.
Just to let my eyes wander over the city and wonder what all is happening there at the moment. And how silent the city seems from that perspective.
Here are my top 3 places with a view in Berlin. I rather watch the TV tower than go in there.
First there is this great city garden and a bar Klunkerkarnich. It’s on a rooftop of a shopping mall (Neukölln Arcaden) in Neukölln. It’s a parking lot deck that has been turned into this amazing urban oasis. Good music, cosy atmosphere, some food, nice drinks, gardening events, concerts. A perfect spot to see the skyline of Berlin. And cuddle.
Then there is my absolute favorite, Viktoriapark. A few people actually know that there is a berg, a hill, in Kreuzberg.
It’s a historic wine-growing area and they still make some wine there. A beautiful park hidden inside the city with a 24-meter high waterfall as well.
The sunset there is amazing. Take a bottle of wine, some salt sticks and good company with you.
And then there is the Monkey Bar!
A really nice bar on the rooftop of a trendy shopping mall Bikini Berlin and a hotel 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin in Mitte. It’s located next to the Zoo so you can really see the monkeys from the bar. And a giraffe.
The have a dj, nice easygoing music, a great terrace, a good bar food menu and a drink list. I recommend.
And they also have the Berlin’s best toilet view:
