Berlin blends rich nightlife and swathes of creative energy with natural beauty in the form of parks, lakes and stunning historical architecture. Summertime weather is generally warm and sunny but June has the highest average rainfall, so it's worth packing something waterproof as well as shorts and tees. Pack something to swim in too as the city has a multitude of lakes dotted around the outskirts perfect for a dip when its hot! So, without further ado here's what to pack and a few tips on some must visit spots in the German capital.

THE SPOTS

 

1. Spacehall Records: Cavernous record store located just off of a main shopping street specialising in hidden gems from the past as well as a sprinkling of curated new releases.

 
 
2. OHM Club: Hiding in the basement of the former Kraftwerk Berlin industrial plant, OHM leans on the experimental side when it comes to music and steers clear of the twilight tourist trail.

 
 
3. Burgermeister: Some say the best burgers in the world are found here, and the unique location (under a bridge at the site of an old public toilet) make this a crucial pit stop.

 
 
4. Tempelhof Air Field: Abandoned air field used in World War II and The Cold War which has been reclaimed as a recreation ground. A huge space perfect for chilling for hours.

 
 
5. Lake Krumme:  Berlin is home to Europe's largest inland water network and there are a selection of natural lakes dotted around the outskirts of the city that are perfect for swimming in the warmer weather.

 
 
6. Konnopke's Currywurst: The best of the best....
