10:00AM

Begin your day with a hearty Frühstück at Schneeweiß in Friedrichshain, East Berlin. The beautifully displayed buffet will see you returning to refill your plate.

11:30AM

Take a leisurely stroll along the Spree to digest. Cross Oberbaum Bridge for a glimpse of Molecule Man and head towards Mitte (the middle district).

12:30PM

Breeze through the collection of five galleries on Museum Island. Catch ‘The Crown of Kerch: Treasures from the Dawn of European History’ exhibition at the Neues Museum, and gaze at regal jewels dating back to medieval times.

3PM

Jump on the U-Bahn and make your way west to the Liquidrom. Unwind with a good schvitz or float aimlessly in the warm, saltwater pool. If you’re feeling peckish, indulge in a Flammkuchen (German pizza) and some bubbles.

5PM

Enjoy a spot of shopping at swish KaDeWe, Berlin’s finest Kaufhaus. The 60,000sqm department store hosts too many designer labels to name and is Europe’s second largest shopping store after Harrods.

7.30PM

Dinner time! Reserve a table at Michelin starred Borchardt, a traditional German restaurant beloved by Berlin’s high society for 150 years.

10PM

Wind down for the evening with a drink at the plush Hotel de Rome. Sip on a Riesling at the Rooftop Terrace, with expansive views over the city.
