Three Beautiful Places to Visit in Berlin this Summer

Urban cool and understated elegance intersect in Germany’s capital city.

Sammlung Hoffmann
The Hoffmann’s began collecting contemporary art in 1968. Today, this vast collection is housed in Ms. Hoffmann’s stunning private workspace and residence. Each Saturday she opens her home to visitors, offering them the opportunity to immerse themselves in art. The current installation features works by Tracy Emin, Monica Bonvicini and Chiharu Shiota, among others. Exhibitions are updated each July. Visitors must register in advance. The collection is closed in August


Markthalle Neun

Housed in a strikingly beautiful 19th-century hall, the Kreuzberg marketplace has become a Berlin institution. Local farmers and food stands converge for the Friday and Saturday markets, and the deliciousness of Street Food Thursday should not be missed. Highlights include the Naschmarkt (Dessert market) on 4 June and the Berlin Coffee Festival, 1-3 September.
