SAS Crew tips: Berlin

David Bowie once called Berlin, “The greatest cultural extravaganza that one could imagine” 
– and, if anything, the German capital’s reputation has grown even further. Flight Attendant Ejner Søjdis tips us on this always hot city.

Tempelhof Airport

If you’re an aviation and history buff like me, this is definitely something you’ll love. The guided tour costs €15 and has to be booked in advance. Standing in Tempelhof today is like stepping back to the day the airport closed its operations. You’ll learn plenty of historical facts about the military operations at the airport and commercial operations following the war.

Commonground

When I’m not in Berlin I crave Commonground’s amazing baked cannellini beans with chorizo. If you’re looking for an early buzz, they serve one of the best espresso martinis I’ve ever had. It can get busy during the weekend, but it’s definitely worth the wait.

The Boros Collection

This privately-owned -collection of contemporary art is exhibited in a converted bunker built during WWII. The exhibitions are wonderful, while the building itself is also well worth the visit. For safety reasons the -bunker can only be visited with a guide.

Transit Restaurant

After a full day of roaming around Berlin, this place is the perfect combination of delicious food and relaxed atmosphere. Transit serves Asian-style tapas, where you order as many small dishes as you like. I love the duck in pajamas, crispy prawns and gado gado. After dinner, check out the cocktail menu.

Bar Saint Jean

This rather small bar serves a great Moscow Mule (as well as other mules) in a cozy, warm atmosphere. It can get crowded during the weekend, so pop in for a quick drink before or after dinner.

Nivea haus

If you’re walking around Berlin on a cold day and feel the need to pamper yourself or your partner with something special, then head to Nivea’s flagship store, Nivea Haus. They offer a wide range of different treatments here. The massages are great, very reasonably priced, and offer a great break from the buzzing city. Best of all, they offer couples massages.
