If you’re in town for this year’s Champions League final in Berlin or just crave a few nights away, the city has plenty to keep you occupied away from all the sporting action. For those who are looking for an interesting departure from the main tourist sites such as the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, there are a number of interesting and different attractions you can visit. Once your accommodation is sorted, you can begin planning your perfect city break.
Art and dinner
Art lovers will be aware of the many galleries and exhibition spaces around Berlin, but there is one venue that might be new to even the most informed art lovers. If you enjoy unique pieces of art and delicious food, you’ll definitely appreciate the Zagreus Projekt. This is the brainchild of Ulrich Krauss, the gallery’s owner. He brings in an artist every two months to produce a unique installation. They then devise a menu together that complements the art, and groups of visitors have the chance to experience the visual piece while dining.
An unusual swimming venue
A dip in the pool is an essential part of vacation for many people, but this generally takes place in a conventional location. However, when you’re visiting Berlin, you have the opportunity to try something completely different. The Badeschiff is a river barge that has been converted into a pool and is now based on the Spree River. It turns into a nightclub after dark, and it has several saunas to enjoy during the winter months.
