10 great things to do in Berlin with the cold weather!
There are many reasons to come to Berlin in winter. The main one is to experience its unique season charm. At first glance, it all seems calmer. But don’t fool yourselfe: only the temperatures are chill. Under the dark cloak, that arrives early by the way, Berlin boils as usual. And what other city knows more fun than this one? The Amstel House gets into the mood with a list of 10 things to do in Berlin in winter. Check it out:
Visit the Soviet War Memorial
This not so famous but definitely monumental memorial looks even more amazing covered in white. After all, it just makes more sense with such an atmosphere.
German cooking curse
In icy times do like the pinguins: stick together. Since ancient times food has always been a good reason to bring people together. So why not take the opportunity and learn how to prepare a good and typical winter German dish? The Amstel House Team tried it and recommends it. Berlin offers great culinary schools, such as Sabine Hueck Atelier Culinário and Goldhahn & Sampson.
A walk in Tiergarten
The park of Berlin that most invokes fairy tales gets in winter a fascinating glimpse. Desolated weeping willows hanging over frozen waters; squirrels hurrying with their bushy tails, statues, fields and bridges silently static under white. Yes, you will feel like in an old magic black and white film.
Christmas Markets & Glühwein
With all the handcraft, typical seasonal food and lights – so many warm nice lights – the best of Christmas Markets is still the delicious Glühwein. Made with red wine mixed with spices and served hot with a slice of orange this classic winter drink warms up even bad moods. Our best recommendations are: WeihnachtsZauber auf dem Gendarmenmarkt, Weihnachtsmarkt am Schloss Charlottenburg and Weihnachtsmarkt in der Altstadt Spandau.
Street food at Markthalle Neun
This old and beautiful covered market offers every Thursday between 5pm and 10pm street food from all around the world made by creative and talented chefs. No matter how gray the outside may seem, inside here colors, smells, and tastes brighten hearts.
Visit a museum
Sit next to the fire
Just imagine: outside of the window is white and cold; you are sitting in a velvet armchair, the fire flame is swinging, the wood popping, the red wine opened. Imagined? Here three places where you can get that 😉 Kuschlowski, Willi Moeller’s Holz Kohle Bar, Zollpackhof.
Ice stock Café am Neuen See
This exotic winter sport can be played in the heart of Berlin’s largest park. After the “big action athletes” can enjoy culinary delights in the cozy side of the restaurant.
