{Berlin} Berliner Büchertisch

Today I want to tell you about a great discovery we made in Berlin Kreuzberg – the ‘Berliner Büchertisch‘ (Engl: Berlin Book Table). The Büchertisch is a charitable foundation with three physical book stores (two in Kreuzberg, one in Friedrichshain) as well as an online store, with the majority of books for sale being donations.

31 May 2013 As I mentioned in my previous post, the first stop on our holiday is Glasgow.

{Berlin} Ritter Sport Bunte Schoko Welt

10 October 2011 Today marks the beginning of Chocolate Week in the UK, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to check out the Ritter Sport Bunte Schoko Welt in Berlin. Granted, it’s leaning more towards commercial tourist attraction than museum, but as well as their shop and cafe they also have a […] Read more…
