Traces of the Weekend: Körnerpark, Roamers and the Museum of Things

Last Sunday was an unusually warm and sunny November day. I decided it would be a nice idea to go for an indulgent brunch and then do some exploring / cultural activity that would involve an outdoor stroll.

I picked Roamers, a stupendous little hipster-hole café’ in Neukölln, for brunch. Honestly the way these guys present their dishes- it is guaranteed to make you drool! Just take a look at their herbal tea infusions! It also seems like this café was THE place to be on a Sunday morning as it was absolutely packed. Though the staff is really kind and tried to accommodate us as soon as possible, it still took a 45 minute wait before we finally got a table at this gem of a place and so we sat outside for a while, and soaked up the sun. The food is all delicious so I won’t even spoil the surprise for when you visit – I will simply upload a couple of photos to get your mouths watering ;-)

I then decided to take a stroll and have a look at an exhibition at the Versailles of Berlin ;-) i.e. the Galerie im Körnerpark Neukölln. A beautiful gallery space (where you can also have brunch incidentally), which hosts differing cultural events and at the moment is showing an interesting photographic exhibition by Ashkan Sahihi called The Berliner- The Portrait of a City (centred on the theme of women and living in Berlin.) I not only recommend the show but also taking a walk around the beautiful grounds of Körnerpark before all the autumnal leaves fall off. Alternatively, if you are around this upcoming Thursday the 12th of November until February 2016- check out this event here.

Last but not least to end our little round of wandering Maultasche and I nipped into the Museum of Things. This Kreuzberg institution is the perfect place if you are an apacionado of memorabilia and all things vintage- from hoovers to kinder egg surprises ;-)

All in all it was a lovely weekend- nicely finished off with my first ever raclette dinner (can you believe what I was missing out on?) at some dear friends’ house. I am already looking forward to next Saturday now ;-)
