Mario Testino: „In Your Face“

Mario Testino is one of, if not the most famous living photographer world-wide, famous for his many glamorous shots of supermodels like Kate Moss, celebrities like Madonna, and public figures like Princess Diana. I am very certain you’ve seen at least one of his pictures – if not, you now have the chance to see a very well selected range of them in big size and excellent print quality in his new exhibition at Kunstbibliothek.

Coffee and Breakfast in Berlin: Distrikt Coffee

Admittedly, one could say something like… another speciality coffee in Mitte?! But then, let’s be grateful for the many delicious coffee options we have! And thankful that the growing competition forces coffee enthusiasts to come up with distinct concepts, sophisticated food menus and pleasing interior designs. One result of the growing struggle to set yourself apart from all the other third wave coffee places in Mitte (check our guide on Berlin’s best coffee spots here) is this haven: Distrikt Coffee at Bergstraße.
