Warning: This is not a conventional guidebook!

Instead of highlighting the city’s hippest ‘hotspots’, we’ve taken a more patient and personal approach to bring you 100 special places, many of which would not be mentioned in conventional guides.

While we have included recommendations on cafes and restaurants, museums and monuments, parks and architecture, we’ve resisted the temptation to compress the city’s commercial components into compelling soundbites in favour of giving our individual choices room to breathe and shine.

As long-term residents of Berlin, we are still very much in thrall to this wonderful city. Rather than dictating your itinerary or telling you what’s ‘hot’, our aim is to provide a charming and inspirational companion to Berlin for visitors and residents alike.

Our favourite places have, as the title suggests, been hand-picked by core members of the Slow Travel Berlin team and reflect our overall ethos of slow, sustainable travel: taking time to explore the fringes of the city, discovering lesser-known delights, and supporting smaller, independent businesses.

We’ve written each profile from first-hand experience and taken our own photographs. We designed the book ourselves and worked with a local illustrator to create hand-drawn maps, all in the hope of creating a unique, intimate view of the city. We hope you will enjoy our favourite places as much as we do.
