Ever been to Döberitzer Heide? One of my new favourite places around Berlin. Located just a short local train ride from Berlin, you’ll find this vast nature reserve on a former military training area. With some luck, you’ll see some semi-wild horses, wisents (the European bisons, close to extinction just some decades ago) or red deer roaming in the protected no-access core zone of the park.

Berliner Dschungel

When it’s cold, wet and dark outside, Botanischer Garten Berlin is one of the best places to hang out. And it was especially worth a visit during this year’s CTM festival and the mesmerizing sound installation “You Will Go Away One Day But I Will Not” by Lucrecia Dalt and Maria Thereza Alves.
