A typical Berlin bar right in the heart of Bergmannkiez. This means smoke and cigarettes are more than welcome, so if you don’t smoke, you may want to skip this option. The drinks are cheap and the atmosphere is unpretentious – an essential experience to have in Berlin.

Zaher's Lounge

Bar, Pub Grub

A charming bar with a good local beer selection and fairly priced cocktails. They’ve got lots of beautiful plants outside the bar so you cant miss it, with a relaxed and homey atmosphere inside. The vibe is welcoming, which could end up keeping you there for longer than you planned.

Clash is not for everyone, but if you feel attracted to the name, its underground atmosphere may be for you. The beer is priced like a typical Berlin bar rather than a tourist spot, which means the prices are always fair. They also have pinball machines and other punk pub games that make the place all the more worthwhile.

Here’s a good bar for those lonely travellers out there. The bar staff are extra friendly and the place often gets busy with a lively crowd. An easy choice if you’re looking for cheap beers and homemade liquor.

Ballhaus Billard

Bar, Contemporary, Pub Grub


This is a really cool option if you’re interested in fun activities while you drink cheap beer. There might not be any music, but the atmosphere is always buzzing. There are lots of clean tables to play various games and drink. Just don’t show up alone, it ain’t that kinda place! Also a cool choice for a Sunday afternoon.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
