1. Bathe at Badeschiff.
How would you like to float in a swimming pool that is also floating? Only in Berlin can you do this with the Badeschiff, literally meaning “bathing ship.” If you feel that it does not make sense to put a swimming pool on top of a river, then you should know that the River Spree is polluted.
2. Drink Absinth
Absinth has been illegal for years because it is quite intoxicating and you really cannot tell just how much of a punch it gives you when you taste its licorice flavor. However, if you are really curious, you can knock yourself out at Absinth Depot Berlin, where the drink is not only available, it is also allowed by law.
3. Zagreus Project
The Zagreus Project combines dining and art. And we are not talking about good food plus artistic restaurant interiors. Nor is it good food plus artistic presentation on the plate. The Zagreus Project allows you to eat the art you see on display! Let us be clearer about that, though. Zagreus is primarily an art gallery that offers full course dinners that reflect the arts on exhibit.
4. Visit Spreepark
There is something about abandoned amusement parks that are so inviting they’re almost hard to resist. Spreepark is special in that you get to have the abandoned amusement park experience with a Jurassic Park twist when you see fallen dinosaurs among the ruins.
5. Pay what you want bars.
The concept of letting people decide how much they want to pay for their drinks is rather refreshing, but is it foolhardy? In Berlin’s Weinerei, you borrow a glass for 1 euro and help yourself to their bars. There are no servers, no price list and at the end of the night, the owners hope that you are sober enough or honest enough to pay for your drinks.
