Berlin is a vibrant city full of art, history, and fantastic people doing interesting things. We speak with Paul Sullivan from Slow Travel Berlin and try to get to grips with the best clubs, best restaurants and most interesting things to do in the city.
We travelled by Eurail from Bern, staying in a hostel for our first night. We were in Berlin for just under a week: enough time to catch up with two old friends plus meet Paul and Benny. It was the perfect holiday with lots of coffee drunk, people to see and an exciting city to explore. Craig kept saying he hadn’t felt so creative in years … that might be a problem.
Since Paul is one of the leading lights of the Matador Photography Course, we asked him to show us the city…
We had an amazing time in Berlin, and we’re excited to get back soon. There are plenty of cheap flights from throughout Europe, so hopefully it’s going to be possible. Rent prices on long-term stays also seemed really reasonable; cheap, even, for a European capital. Perhaps that’s what attracts so many artists and creatives there.
