Welcome to Berlin!

Berlin in summer has it all. Okay, fine, not a beach. But what it lacks in coastline it makes up for with over 80 lakes, a thriving cultural scene, amazing restaurants and Europe’s best nightlife.

Add to that the hip hotels, designer shops and general open-minded vibe, and you’re left with little to argue with. Our seasonal issue of Berlin Inspires is filled from cover to cover with all the places and experiences that make this city the unique and uplifting destination it is today.
