#1 Ringbahn Party! (circle train party)
Well, the berlin public transportation system is one of the best in the whole world. Beside constant availability, there are several activities where you can celebrate being in berlin. The Ringbahn (circular railway) goes around the city center. Sometimes my friends and I grab a beer crate, take a seat and running circles until the crate is empty. Its fun watching and meeting new people. There is one important thing you have to decide: clockwise or anticlockwise?
#2 It´s Dön´o´clock!
Berlin is well known for his big party scene. The most of the parties in the clubs are starting around 1pm-2pm and party last for a couple of days. Maybe you can imagine that your stomach calls for food after a couple hours of dance. No Problem. It’s Dön´o´clock! Döner (aka Kebab) is the most famous fast food in Germany. You can get the German/Turkish deliciousness 24/7 and sometimes it’s a Lifesaver after hours of excessive partying. The best part of it is. It’s Damn cheap! For only 3€, you get a proper meal. Every time is a good time for a Döner.
#3 Loot the “Späti”!!!
“Späti? WTF is a Späti?” – Good Questions. A “Späti” is a shortcut for “Spätkauf”. Still uncertain? Spätkauf means as much as “Late Night Shop”. Berlin has a dense network of these little stores where you nearly get everything! Yes, everything. From Toothbrush over Crackers and Condoms to the most important thing. Beer. These stores are open 24/7 and mostly operated by Turkish or Arabic people. So don’t be scared. If you ever running out of – anything. Be sure there is a Späti in your near area. Just in case: The Spätifinder (link) shows you sorted by district all the Spätis in Berlin.
People meet at the Spätis for pregaming or to get a frozen pizza.
#4 Grab your “Wegbier”!
Weg@#+?!WHAT?! – “Wegbier”. That’s the synonym for Walking around with a beer in your hand. Weg = Way + Bier=beer = Wegbier. Now that you now the Spätis I can be sure that you never running out of beer. In contrast to the most states of the U.S., in Berlin it’s allowed (and strictly asked for) to consume alcohol on/in public places. So don’t be confused when you meet some guys walking around with a beer. At 9 o clock (am). While you are on your way to get a proper breakfast.
#5 HuckleBerlin Finn
Now that I have talked that much about the most important cultural things in berlin, it’s not all about Party and Alcohol. If you have the chance to visit Berlin in Summer. Take an offtime from partying and rent yourself a raft to explore the Spree (River in Berlin). A Boot fits up to 8 People. You can do a BBQ, Lay in the Sun, and listen to your own Music while you’re floating around the city. Make sure you don’t forget your Beer.
