So many words have been written on Neukölln hailing it for the melting pot that it represents as well as its countless bars, cafes and event venues. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that finding a flat or a room there has turned into a Hunger Games competition. This story, however, focuses on a very special feature of this thrilling borough. As you might have already noticed in our “events” section, this Saturday an all new edition of Neukölln Shopping Night takes place, this time in Weserkiez, where a range of wonderful bars, stores and restaurants awaiting you will make you feel overwhelmed and unable to choose where to go first. We tried to compile a list of all the places that we personally cannot wait to visit hoping to give you a hand when wandering around the plethora of captivating choices. The places participating in the event mentioned above have prepared a lot of surprises for this special day that will keep them open way until late evening.

Bohei

Once you visit Bohei, you will always find yourself returning there, since the last time you bought someone a present from here, they seemed to really like it and this somehow made you want to pamper yourself with lots of well-chosen design gifts. Strange, isn’t it?  Well, maybe not that much, when you see this place’s bags, prints and wallets.
