Writing the different city guides for our ongoing series Exploring Berlin has been a true pleasure in the past months. It’s something that we haven’t done so much in the past, but have been really getting into especially within the last year. We love how it makes us explore parts of Berlin that we haven’t been so focused on before and to always look out for the new things popping up. We have also enjoyed the feedback that we get from you guys that add their personal favorites to our themed or district guides and most of all we love to read the comments how these guides have helped you find you way around in Berlin.
When Citadines asked us to compile one of our Berlin guides for their Travel Capsule campaign we were of course happy to do so. The Travel Capsule is an interactive experiences in Paris and London that combines the physical with the digital. In both cities, the brand will set up a studio in big train stations which is a recreation of a Citadines apart‘hotel. In this studio visitors will be able to travel to either Berlin, London or Paris via a big interactive screen where they will get special recommendations for each city curated by local bloggers. This is were we come in: We chose 20 places in Berlin in different categories including culture, food, business and shopping that will be shown on an interactive video map inside the Travel Capsules giving the visitor a digital tour of the town while snacking on specialties from each respective country. If they are lucky they can also win trips and hotel nights in one of those cities such as Berlin where the Citadines apart’hotel is located at Olivaer Platz right in the heart of Charlottenburg.
We want to share a part of this guide with you today and selected 10 places that are in the West of Berlin including Tiergarten, Charlottenburg and Schöneberg – those districts that we have neglected far too long and that we particularly enjoy to discover these days. Have a look at our selection after the jump!
