Whistles neighbourhood: Berlin
We love Berlin, for the flux of creative dining, retail and design concepts that are dreamt up by its inhabitants, not to mention the thriving art scene. As our latest concession is unveiled within the iconic KaDeWe department store, refer to our expert micro-guide for our pick of the best boutiques, galleries and restaurants.
This hip hotel is a favourite among members of the fashion industry. The interior is industrial yet unpretentious, and the in-house spa is rumoured to be heavenly. The rooms are well-designed micro-spaces, with charming mezzanines and super fun bunk beds that fuse both style and comfort.

Hamburger Bahnhof Gallery
This enormous gallery is located in a former railway station and as such, the space is as much a spectacle as the works on display. Get lost among the colossal exhibiting rooms and spend a day perusing thought-provoking contemporary works by artists including Martin Kippenberger and George Widener.

Bauhaus Archive Museum
While in Berlin, a visit to the Bauhaus Museum is essential. Tracing the modernist ethos of the prolific art and design school, from when it opened in 1919, to its closure in 1933, this space provides a fascinating insight into the inner workings of its students and tutors.
Klingelhöferstraße 14, 10785 Berlin
This intriguing eatery is pioneering the trend for prehistoric dining. Located in the heart of the trendy Kreutzberg district, the Palaeolithic Restaurant creates imaginative, saporous dishes, using ingredients that have been hunted and foraged only. The result is innovative and surprisingly healthy, considering the absence of additives, sugar and carbohydrates.
Pflügerstrasse 25, 12047 Berlin
This vintage boutique is a gold mine. Discover Céline accessories from the 1970s nestled between classical pieces by Kenzo and Jil Sander. The sparse curation provides a welcome alternative to rifling through piles of dusty dresses.
