The best places to visit in Berlin this summer.

Summer in Berlin is well known for being a whole lot of fun. Our Berlin insider and friend of Locke, Lorena, shares her favourite spots so you can experience summer in the city like a true local.

Berlin comes alive in the summertime. Think bike rides and picnics in the park. Al-fresco partying until the sun comes up and dining on the buzzing streets. Well... summer is not over yet. There’s still time to book that last-minute trip to Berlin and experience the German capital in all its glory. Or, start making plans for summer 2024.

We asked Berlin insider, photographer, and creator Lorena, also known as lorenaschi_ to pick her favourite spots that you can visit in the city this summer...
