Don't let it get you down: October actually brings a lot more than the curfew and an increasing number of new infections. There is of course the opening of the BER airport Berlin Brandenburg, which we do not want to embezzle here. We are also very happy about exciting new ideas, such as the zero percent late. And then there are actually some restaurant and store concepts in Berlin that are so successful that they will positively surprise us with further store openings in October. We have picked out an exciting selection of new openings, new ideas and concepts for you here.
Please show responsibility, wear your masks, keep your distance and help to ensure that these new openings in Berlin can start successfully.
Tip 1: Frühstück3000
Let's start with breakfast this time. Because since October 9th Berlin has a new breakfast restaurant. From 8 a.m. until late afternoon you can enjoy modern interpretations of classic breakfasts as well as seasonal specials. Or you can try something completely different, like pea doughnuts with mint yoghurt. We wish you a good start to the day!
When: Monday - Friday from 8 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm
Where: Bülowstrasse 101
Tip 2: Sunday Family Lunch at Charlotte & Fritz
We will continue with lunch, to which you are welcome every Sunday with the whole family at "Charlotte & Fritz". Under the motto "Always Sundays", the restaurant at the Gendarmenmarkt has been inviting you to its Family Lunch Special with sparkling wine and other delicacies every Sunday since the beginning of October. In addition to Sunday roast and fish, vegetarian options are of course also available. A nice tradition with which the "Charlotte & Fritz" wants to awaken childhood memories and will certainly write new ones.
When: every Sunday from 12 pm to 3 pm
Where: Charlottenstraße 49, Mitte
Tip 3: Null Prozent Späti
Who needs alcohol? The Null Prozent (zero percent) Späti shows how well it works without it. The pop-up store in Halleschen Haus offers you alternatives to high-proof alcohol throughout October. Come by for non-alcoholic meals or become self-sufficient and take part in a Kombucha workshop.
When: Wednesday - Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm
Where: Hallesches Haus, Tempelhofer Ufer 1, Kreuzberg
Tip 4: Aral Mobility Hub
After all, filling stations in Berlin are currently practical because they are allowed to be open late at night. With the Mobility Hub in Holzmarktstraße, Aral is now heading further into the future. Here you can not only fill up your car and midnight snacks, but also find the right vehicle to continue your journey through the night. In addition to a BVG Jelbi station, you can change to various car sharing services, to e-scooters or e-scooters. And, of course, you can also recharge them here if you need them.
When: open 24 hours a day
Where: Holzmarktstraße 12 - 14, Friedrichshain
Tip 5: Smuk in Schöneberg
Suited to the time of year when it is most enjoyable to make yourself comfortable inside, Smuk has opened a branch office in Schöneberg. This means that there are now two stores for fine crafts in Berlin. Let yourself be inspired by the lovingly selected handicraft pieces.
When: Wednesday - Friday 12 pm to 7 pm, Saturday 11 am to 5 pm
Where: Grunewaldstraße 9 a, Schöneberg
Tip 6: Globetrotter
With the newly opened adventure branch in Steglitz, Globetrotter is focusing on more sustainability. In addition to a repair workshop in the store, a club hut invites you to events. In the Globetrotter Innovation Lab you can marvel at new trends for your own. If you want to relax before your next outdoor adventure, the Panorama Café is the place to be.
When: Monday - Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm
Where: Schloßstraße 20, Steglitz
Tip 7: Burgermeister opens new branch
The first burgers were fried in 2003 in an admittedly unusual location - a former public toilet at Schlesisches Tor. Soon the queue at the Burgermeister was longer than in front of any women's restroom. And so since the beginning of October, in addition to the branches in Kreuzberg, Charlottenburg and Friedrichhain, there has also been a Burgermeister directly at Potsdamer Platz.
When: Monday - Thursday from 11 am to 11 pm, Friday - Sunday from 12 pm to 11 pm (With the abolition of the curfew, the Burgermeister is open daily until 1 am).
Where: Potsdamer Platz 1, Tiergarten
Tip 8: Monster Notebook and Canada Goose
Just in time for the Christmas shopping season, a number of international chains are also gifting us with new branches in the capital. Monster Notebook, known for high-performance gaming devices, has opened its first German store at Berlin's Alexanderplatz. Those who prefer to travel further outdoors despite the wind and cold, can equip themselves technically in the first German store of Canada Goose.
Tip 9: The Weinlobbyist
With a glass of wine in the courtyard you will surely feel almost like on vacation. The wine lobbyist will serve you fine, small tapas-style meals, such as fresh bread, but also sashimi, shrimps or tarte flambée, to go with the really delicious and extraordinary wines. Let us spoil you!
When: Thursday - Monday from 11 am to 11 pm (closed on Tuesday and Wednesday)
Where: Kolonnenstraße 62, Schöneberg
Tip 10: Babylon Podcast
Finally, "Babylon Berlin" is on its way. For all fans we have a very special tip. Those who want to know more about the last golden days of the 1920s will find a new documentary and podcast series in the ARD Mediathek and on rbb Kultur, in which author and director Volker Heise passes on history and stories from the 1920s.
When: on the radio on rbb Kultur from 10 October to 13 November on Saturdays at 14:00
Where: also as a podcast on radioeins.de, in the ARD audio library and on all common podcast platforms
Tip 11: Berlin Brandenburg airport BER
The opening of the new airport will already be celebrated on October 30th with guests from politics, business, culture and the media. We are already looking forward to the fireworks, which we hope to see from afar. And to the fact that, theoretically, up to 27 million passengers could come to Berlin next year via BER alone. The train station is located directly under Terminal 1, so even if you're not allowed to fly on vacation in the near future, you can still get a taste of airport air. Directly at Terminal 1 you will also find a 9000 square meter marketplace with numerous stores, restaurants and cafés. Perfect for a stroll on rainy days.
Please pay attention to the prescribed distance and hygiene measures during your visits.
