The best hang out spots for summer in Berlin
Haubentaucher is (besides being a great crested grebe according to the English/German dictionary) also the name of an urban pool, sundeck, garden, lounge, and bar, which is literally how Haubentaucher describes itself on their website and business cards. Behind the big, old brick walls that used to be the place where the trams of Berlin came to be repaired, you can now pay 5 euros and then be able to enjoy one of the best hang out spot Berlin offers. For the 5 euros entrance fee, you will be able to go in and out for a whole day, you simply get a stamp when you pay, and you just show that to the doorman if you want to leave and come back.

Every Saturday there is a market right close to where I live – on Boxhagener Platz in Friedrichshain. I love to go there – not only because of the cheap prices when it comes to buying vegetables, fruit, and flowers, not to mention their big assortment, the great food, cakes, and coffee the market offers, but also to take in the great market atmosphere there is here.

Klunkerkranich is the name of one of the coolest places in Berlin. Hidden in the parking lot on top of a mall in Neukölln, an urban rooftop garden as Klunkerkranich is not what you expect to find here. None the less, when you take the elevator to the top floor and walk the last story up, you will find this amazing urban garden with a breathtaking 360 degrees view of Berlin. Perfect space to hang out both day and night.

East of Ostkreuz in Friedrichshain, a big surprise awaits you. Rummelsburg is beautifully situated by the Spree, and instead of a river, the Spree more looks like a big, amazing lake, and you definitely get the feeling that you are no longer in Berlin. Rummelsburg is quiet, beautiful, and very countryside like. In Rummelsburg you can find many cool hangout spots, and one of them is this one shown in the picture above, Hafenküche, a restaurant and lounge with really good food and drinks.
