Opener Berlin through the eyes of a traveler

Green daycation in Berlin

“To understand that the sky is blue everywhere, you don't have to travel around the world.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This quote is from Goethe from his work "Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre" and actually sums up quite well what many of us have grappled with in the past few months. Instead of wandering into the distance, these days we mainly discover the beauties on our own doorstep and learn to appreciate the small, everyday things.

If your own front door is in a big city like Berlin, then in recent months some have been drawn to nature in their free time. But right now, at a time when the otherwise pulsating city is a little quieter, it can be great fun to explore your own city like a traveler. For this reason we have put together a very special guide for Berlin, which contains great ideas for excursions for a so-called “daycation” in Berlin. Admire the capital through the eyes of a traveler for a day and let yourself be enchanted!

First of all, we strengthen ourselves in the Miniloft Berlin café

Before you start, it is worthwhile to treat yourself to a delicious takeout from Café Nullpunkt. The café is located on the ground floor from Miniloft Kreuzberg and usually serves her house guests from all over the world delicacies at a reduced price. True to the motto “Naturally Good For All”, there are all kinds of vegetarian, vegan and lactose-free dishes and drinks here. Here you can stock up before you go for a walk in the direction of one of the stops for bus routes 100, 200 or 300.

Explore Berlin with the 100, 200 or 300 bus

Take an inexpensive city tour in a 100, 200 or 300 bus

Normally, the BVG public bus lines are a popular point of contact for Berlin tourists, but due to the current situation, the BVG misses out on a large number of passengers. With the double-decker buses of bus routes 100, 200 or 300 you can take an inexpensive city tour and you don't need more than an AB ticket and about 60 minutes. If you like, you can get off every now and then and get tired of the beautiful sights of the capital, which - if you're lucky - you now have all to yourself.

An exclusive and emission-free city tour with "WeShare"

If you want to enjoy it more exclusively and enjoy the city tour without other passengers, you can use one of the city's car sharing providers. With the electric cars from "WeShare“You are even emission-free, clean and quiet on the road. In addition, with the “WeShare” you can take longer routes far beyond the bus routes and thus discover even more.

Provide fresh food at the Kollwitzplatz organic market

Another way to get to know another neighborhood in a special way is to get to know one of the numerous weekly markets in the city visited. So can be found on the Organic market on Kollwitzplatz for example, a wide range of organic products and services every Thursday from 12 p.m. to 18 p.m. According to the motto “Harvested in the morning, sold at noon”, traders from the region offer fresh fruit and vegetables from rural and organic agriculture, home-baked bread, numerous types of cheese, wild herbs and organic wine for sale. Here you can shop to your heart's content and equip yourself for a cooking evening at home.

After visiting the weekly market, it's time to go out on the water

In order to round off the daycation in Berlin successfully, it is now in the direction of Treptower Park on the water to the bath steamer. The bath steamer is Germany's first floating whirlpool, where you can experience Berlin with a favorite person from the water. The special thing is that the whirlpool glides over the Spree very quietly and without the smell of petrol thanks to the environmentally friendly electric motor. A wood stove ensures that the fresh water in the pool stays comfortably warm and that you can enjoy your stay in the steam bath to the full, even when the outside temperature is cooler. From here you have the opportunity to discover Berlin from a completely different perspective and you can even do good. Because for every booked trip with the bathing steamer, 5 euros will be donated to the civil sea rescue of refugees at Sea-Watch eV.

Experiencing Berlin from the bathing steamer is also possible in corona times

A culinary journey in the evening rounds off the daycation

After a warming bath on the Spree, you can finally make your way home, deeply relaxed. Back in your own four walls, you can end the day with a last culinary journey. The blog section "Kitchen whispers“Contains a motley hodgepodge of recipes that you can take with you to the various kitchens of the Good Travel accommodations and inspire you to try them out.
