Next month I’m heading to Berlin for a long weekend and I need your help. Having never been to Berlin – or Germany, for that matter – before, I’d love to know your favourite places to eat, drink, shop and everything else in between.

I’m going to visit a friend who works out there as a journalist, so I’ll be in good hands, but as far as I’m concerned, the more suggestions for enjoying Berlin, the better! Aside from the Berlin Wall and its WWII history, all I know about the city is that it’s big on art, vintage and music, all of which sound just dandy to me.

If I could afford a whole new wardrobe for the trip, this is what I would take – I’ve had my eye on the Topshop duster jacket for months, and the Hamble Oak brogues from Clarks toe the line perfectly between jazz dance and bookish. I think it will be pretty cold over there so any vintage I take with me, like this beautiful wine coloured garbadine dress from Rokit, will probably be hidden under layers of coats, jumpers and scarves, so colourful, fun accessories will be key!

So before I head off in search of a guidebook, what recommendations for this fine city can you give me?

    Tartan trousers and brogues are a must! ;) I’ve been thinking a lot about visiting Berlin so I can’t wait to hear all about it ha. <3

    I haven’t been to Berlin since 2005 (and even then I was stuck inside a trade show working) so I’m afraid I’d be rubbish at recommends – though I’m sure the main museums/galleries will be ace!
    However I can say with certainty that I love your wish list. Have a great time and I look forward to bloggage from Berlin.
