Berlin’s mayor once summed up the city as “poor but sexy.” Today, Berlin’s creative scene has moved on and is more alive, experimental, and professional than ever before. The Berlin Design Guide is a practical handbook for anyone who wants to get to know this seething metropolis and its creative hotspots.
From the Buchstabenmuseum, an innovative museum devoted to letterforms, to the Mauerpark, a stretch of green that follows the former path of the Berlin Wall; from Prenzlauer Berg’s popular Bonanza Coffee Heroes to our own Gestalten Space; from legendary concert venue SO36 to the iconic ICC—the book features various tours that reveal the city’s epicenters in architecture, design, art, and fashion. The listings are supplemented by interviews and portraits of local creatives from these fields that give personal insight into the city’s infectious dynamic.
As a comprehensive address book and insider’s guide to the city’s creative scene, The Berlin Design Guide is invaluable for visitors, newcomers, and established Berliners alike.
