I’M GOING TO BERLIN

May 6, 2011

This weekend I’m in Berlin making a report for Dutch magazine Marie Claire. I will be staying at the new The Weinmeister hotel in Mitte – but ofcourse I will be discovering new areas of the city as well. I’m so curious about the hotel because they work with iPad’s as well. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook I will keep you updated.

Are you travelling to Berlin sooner than October (when the article is published) or living in another country and want my recommendations? Sent me an e-mail at petitepassport@hotmail.com

TRIED & TESTED: ALPENSTUECK BERLIN

April 25, 2011

Babs den Haring is  one of the most dedicated Petite Passport travellers. Together with her handsome husband she travelled to Berlin:

Most striking feature:

“We didn’t visit the restaurant, but the bakery across the street. It’s a sweet little bakery with white tables and chairs. Behind the beautiful counter you will find all kinds of delicious food. Like bread with several kinds of German cheese. This is the place to be if you want to learn more about traditional German food. And a good place to have breakfast. Oh and don’t forget to take a look at their beautiful pictures on the wall.”

TRIED & TESTED: CHIPPS BERLIN

April 22, 2011

Babs den Haring is  one of the most dedicated Petite Passport travellers. Together with her handsome husband she travelled to Berlin:

Most striking feature:

“They serve an inexpensive lunch menu for 8,50 euro. Everything in here is freshly prepared and produced. You can choose a starter and a main course. I started with the chestnut soup which was followed by a pasta with pumpkin and nuts. I don’t know if all the dishes are made for vegetarians but if not, you won’t be dissappointed if you’re a vegetarian coming here.  Oh, and don’t forget to order their home made lemon lemonade. It’s delicious!”
