Summer in Berlin

Summer in Berlin

Summer, sun, city

There’s only one thing better than Berlin, and that’s summer in Berlin. There is hardly another large city that can offer such a wide range of possibilities to enjoy the best season of all in all its facets. Not far from the city centre containing all the excitement of metropolis life, there are many lakes with bathing places and spacious parks that positively invite you for sun-bathing and refreshing the soul. There’s even a strong Mediterranean flair in the awareness of life in the heart of Berlin – the first warm rays of the sun is the trigger for the pavements and squares to be filled with café tables. Fashionable beach bars with their palm trees, sand and cocktails provide that holiday feeling right in the middle of the city. Sun-bathing in a deck-chair, wiggling your toes in the fine, warm sand, listening to reggae music and enjoying the view of the glittering Spree – this is not a place where anybody misses the Caribbean.
All the happy hustle and bustle going on in the countless street festivals, open-air festivals and parades provide the perfect setting to turn every summer’s day into a holiday. In June, the Brandenburg Gate will be transformed into a back drop for parades, fan miles and fashion shows. The warm summer evenings will sound to the most beautiful melodies in the world when open-air concerts take place in the Gendarmenmarkt, the Spandau Citadel and the Waldbühne.
