The taste of summer

In summer, life in Berlin happens outdoors – with the first rays of sunshine, the cafés and restaurants set up their tables and chairs on pavements and plazas. Take a seat to relax in the shade of a tree in a Berlin beer garden. Enjoy a spectacular view across the city from the roof decks on summer evenings. Add your voice to the calls of “Berlin ahoy!” in the beach bars, your toes in the sand and the Spree at your fingertips. The ice cream parlours offer the most delicious new creations for every new summer season.
