GOING OUT The

GOING OUT The architecture is classic Prussian with dashes of something much more cont emporary. Inside the hotel, the overall atmosphere is intimate and calm while the service is excellent, and attentive but discreet. Inside the building - constructed during the reign of the last German emperor - not a trace of starchy old Prussia is to be found, the style is in fact Italian with a dash of lush, mysterious Asia. Upon arrival, guests make their way through a sandstone gate straight into the heart of the hotel. The glass-roofed courtyard provides an exquisite lounge area in the building – an enclosed garden and lounge in one. The hand-selected interior furnishings provide an inviting and cozy refuge. Guests can relax their minds and feast their eyes on the Japanese garden which changes subtly with the seasons. You can also take breakfast and lunch in thios oasis of heavenly tranquillity. In the evening you can drift off accompanied by the sweet sounds of after dinner jazz. Brandenburger Hof Hotel The Brandenburger Hof Hotel is located near an array of exclusive boutiques and is also near to the luxury KaDeWe department store. The Augsburger Strasse U- Bahn subway station and the main train station are conveniently located just 1 minute and 15 minutes from the hotel respectively. Tegel airport, Tempelhof airport and Schönefeld airport are located at 15, 20 and 45 minutes away. For gourmet palates, utter indulgence awaits in the Quadriga restaurant, where gourmet chef Bobby Bräuer will bombard your taste buds. His “quintessential cuisine” has been awarded one Michelin Star. The hotel’s wine cellar, known as the Treasure Trove of German Wines is a fitting compliment to Brauer’s cooking. A selection of suggestions of what to do and where to eat, drink and party from the visiting press core at IFA Peter Grabowski of WDR: “Lining is on the Tucholskystrasse, close to the Ecke Auguststrasse, is a new club in the rooms of former famous jazz and ambient sclub Jubinal. Although it only started this August started it has already become one of the hot spots in Berlin Mitte. It attracts a typical Berlin crowd, and the music is pretty varied but overall quite relaxed from downbeat and ambient with a little house. I highly recommend the Rat Pack Night which takes place tonight. Ben De Kock works for Test-Aankoop, the Belgian equivalent of Stiftung Warentest in Germany: I don’t live here but last weekend we went out and sampled the delights of this amazing city. “Bar Ä on the Wesserstrasse in Berlin Neukoln is a relatively new bar in a beautiful part of Berlin. It has really special decoration, very raw, with some elements of old DDR furniture. Also important is the relaxed atmosphere in the bar and the music they play is nice, a wide variety of styles for all tastes. One of the best clubs at the moment is the Panorama Bar-Berghein on the Rudersdorfer strasse. I went to this club on Saturday night. It has very industrial style of décor and occupies two different floors, one being the Panorama bar and the other is Berghein the electronic club. The music was amazing, as were the people and the atmosphere. Monika Kruse played a live set in the Panorama Bar which was great and I also would have liked to hear Zander VT but they only started at 9 am :-0 On Sunday afternoon we went to the 'carnival of the freaks' near the planetarium which was very funny too. In terms of a restaurant we went to the Trattoria Venezia in Neukolln. They serve pizzas that are 60cm in diameter, really incredible, but unfortunately I do not know the name of the street although I can tell you that it’s close to subway station Gorlitzr Bahnhof. Ulf Tegler is a freelance journalist. “dicken Wirtin on the Carmerstraße is a typical Berliner Scene Kneipe (a kneipe is an intimate, smoky local bar) that harks back to the hippy era of the late 60s. They serve good food, good beer and the place is a magnet for good people both the clients and staff. When TASTE Matters... With 3 hotels on Berlin’s most famous boulevard and one hotel in the South of the city, with ideal transport connections to the Eastern and Western quarters and to Berlin’s Schönefeld airport (SXF).
