    • Morning
      • Take a guided tour of Sammlung Boros, a phenomenal private art collection in a former World War II bunker.

      • This is the most expansive and best contemporary art collection in a white-hot art capital.
      • Rent a boat - or just drink beer - at Café am Neuen See, in Berlin's largest park

      • Paddle around the lake in Tiergarten, Berlin's answer to Central Park. Have coffee or beer afterward in the park's lovely cafe.
    • Afternoon
      • Order the flammküchen at Chez Gino, a cozy Southern German restaurant.

      • This cozy restaurant serves delicious flammküchen - German-style flatbread - along with comfort food classics like spätzle with melted cheese.
      • Listen to techno music underwater at Liquidrom, an urban spa.

      • You can listen to techno (or classical) music underwater in a warm lighted pool, and relax in three saunas. There are live DJs three times a week.
      • Wander around the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, which is both moving and artistic.

    • Evening
      • Snap up last-minute cheap tickets to the Philharmonie Berlin

      • Drop by the Philharmonie to get last minute, cheap tickets to see Sir Simon Rattle conduct Berlin's famed Philharmonic. The sound there is incredible.
      • Make a reservation at Little Otik, a farm-to-table restaurant

      • By far, the best farm-to-table restaurant in Berlin. There is love and attention put into this food. It began as a secret apartment supper club.
    • Night
      • Start your night out at Luzia, on Berlin's best bar row.

      • Luzia plays au courant music and is right in the middle of Berlin's most happening bar area. The people-watching is fantastic.
      • Stay out too late at Berghain, the wildest dance club in the world

      • DJ magazine voted Berghain the best dance club in the world for several years running. The DJs are excellent, and the setting - in a cavernous converted power station - is epic.

      • The rooms are super-spacious and have record players! The building holds tons of events, and has a spa, gym, rooftop bar and screening room.
