The summer months bring a very special atmosphere to the city: the sun sets later and the days seem endlessly long. Enjoy romantic evenings in the open-air cinemas and visit the exhibitions that have reopened. Or pack your swimsuits and head out into Berlin's nature. Whatever your choice, one thing is for sure: with an ice cream or a cool drink in your hand everything is twice as much fun.

Especially on the weekends you can find open-air flea markets in many neighbourhoods in almost every district. If you are interested in small and large works of art, we recommend the art market at the Zeughaus in Mitte. Or are you rather looking for a vintage piece of clothing for your wardrobe or a rare record? Then you should check out the Mauerpark every Sunday. We already have an idea how your day after visiting the flea market could go on...

After your stroll through an art or flea market, you have really deserved a refreshment! Everywhere in the city you will find cafés in the sunshine where you can refresh yourself with a cold or hot drink and enjoy fresh, homemade sweet or savoury treats. You can immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the summery atmosphere in Berlin.

Tip 11: Open-air cinema

Lights out, film on! At the push of a button the open-air cinema cannot be darkened, we have to wait until the sun goes down. And that's worth it! Comfortably on a picnic blanket or in a deckchair you can follow the spectacle on the screen. In the open-air cinemas of the city great classics or also less known independent films are played. The open-air atmosphere makes this cinema experience very special.
