Berlin inspires as a creative metropolis, as a start-up hub, as a place for innovative technology and science.

WHERE BERLIN FEELS BRITISH

If Brexit has you making escape plans but you fear the culture shock, then Berlin is the perfect place for you. If, like a lot of Brits, you’re stubbornly monolingual, never fear; as well as a thriving expat and Anglosphere community, around 80% of Germans speak English, rising to 95% of the under-30s. Or maybe you’re just going to miss the comforts of a good cuppa and decent chippie? Again, Berlin has you covered. Here are some of our favourite places in the city that show Berlin is really a home away from home.

Visit the Tiergarten teahouse for a nice cup of Earl Grey. Commissioned by the British General Bourne, and armed with a donation of 5000 trees, the southwest section of Tiergarten was restructured into a quaint English Garden. This same garden still stands today and within it; teahouse!
