A guide to Berlin's best summer hotspots.
Felyx is pretty new to Berlin but is already taking care of us in various ways. When you’re late to meet up with friends, have overslept for work, or just need to go to a lake outside of Berlin and don’t have the energy to bike – felyx will help you out.
But not only will felyx save your skin in stressful situations, felyx will also awaken the nostalgic moments of traveling by e-moped around Berlin, feeling the sun on bare shoulders. Felyx is an adventure seeker who’s making life easier.
Rides with felyx are priced similarly to public transport and are almost always cheaper than driving a car or taking a taxi, on top of that you can move faster in the city, and you have no fuel or parking costs. Pay per minute or get a Day Pass where you pay 14:99€ and get to keep your e-moped for 500 minutes. Meaning you can bring it to the lake, save it for your ride back home and use it again later on.
BERLIN SUMMER HOT SPOTS
Berlin in the Summer is nothing like the winter months, and for newcomers to the city, first-timers or long-time returners, we would like to introduce, or remind you of some of the city’s greatest spots.
Flohmarkt - Rathaus Schöneberg
Berlin has several Flohmarkts, and many of them are good. Although this one may be the most underrated. Go there, buy a take-away coffee, and start digging - you’re on a treasure hunt!
Fetich and rave clothes for the weekend
There are a few stores that have niched down on fetish and rave clothes, and one of them is The Code who works with small independent and local designers. Are you preparing for a night out in Berlin? Get your club outfit at The Code and dive into the night. Maybe to Kitkat, that is just around the corner.
FKK lakes - Teufelssee
When in Germany one must enjoy the freedom of FKK. Families, friends, and lovers hang out by the lakes together. Listen to music, swim, play games and eat. The only problem is that they tend to be located a bit outside the city, until felyx introduced their ’Day Pass’*. We recommend Teufelssee, but watch out for the pigs!
Entertainment, burlesque, and performance
Berlin is known as the city of Burlesque and if you haven’t yet experienced Zum Starken August and Tipsy Bear, you should. Take the e-moped to Prenzlauer Berg, park it, and you find these two top locations basically facing each other on the same street.
Sunset watching at Tempelhofer Feldt
Do we need to say more?
Karaoke in Mauerpark on Sundays
Karaoke at the Amphitheater in Mauerpark is a very folksy, warm, and polar activity that brings young and old together for a sing along. It’s a very supporting crowd, so if you’ve got it in you, jump up the stage!
Record shopping – Hardwax
Techno music at its finest is to be found in the legendary record shop Hardwax, that’s been around since 1989. Local and world-famous DJs like Marcel Dettmann and Hector Oaks have both been working here before they pursued their careers.
Bar and House Club – Sameheads
This lovely bar and club combined, is something special and shines bright on many levels. Owner Nathan is passionate about house music and art which you can see and feel as soon as you enter. The dance floor, located in the basement, is one of the most intimate ones in Berlin.
If you’re in Berlin, you can’t miss out on the Turkish food. Go discover the Turkish market in Neuköln or head to Azzam to enjoy the tastes of quality food. We love the smell of a Turkish grill in the summer.
Local brewery – Neulich
Berlin is a city where you often find independent and small businesses doing a better job than the big ones, and that’s what makes the city so authentic. Neulich is proof of that, and we recommend you to pass by their bar in Neukölln, or to just get their beer from a local Späti and bring it to a park. Enjoy!
