Beer Garden
$$
“Rooftop Bar Klunkerkranich is hardly a secret anymore, this place is still super cool and unique. Take the subway to Rathaus Neukölln (U7) and walk to the somewhat sad looking Neukölln Arkaden (mall). Once in there, find the elevators that take you to the highest possible floor. Once you get out, you will find yourself in a parking garage atop the mall. Walk up to the ramp with the walls adorned by a funky vertical garden. You are now at one of the funkiest and coolest places to watch the sunset in Berlin. Wether you sit by the rooftop garden or on the benches, tables and steps of the bar area, you are in for a treat. ”

“At the intersection of Zimmerstraße and Friedrichstraße, Checkpoint Charlie is still an impressive reminder of Germany's most famous former border crossing and the time of the Cold War. Today the wall has disappeared and the watchtowers and barriers of the former military checkpoint have been replaced by replicas, which are amongst Berlin's most popular photo themes. Experience the whole history in the Wall Museum or take a fast Trabitour along the former course of the Wall.”
