Scope Festival 2017: Alternative Berlin Guide

Photography: visitBerlin

Since a lot of Nordic music fans around (thanks to Scope Festival 2017), we wanted to share Swedish musician Adna’s favorite places in Berlin! Here you can find alternative places to hangout between gigs and explore Berlin with Adna’s favorites! Don’t forget to check her RY X cover “Berlin” and our Scope Festival 2017 playlist featuring all festival line up while walking around!

for eating

There’s this local Vietnamese place, From Hanoi With Love. All of my friends love it, me too, and my flat mate Linn and I go there whenever we don’t feel like cooking.

for drinking

Twinpigs. I barely go anywhere else for drinking, it’s close to home and a good place for a small talk since there’s always someone you know there.

for coffee

Café Vux, because it’s all vegan and cosy and they have the best cappuccinos.

for dancing

About Blank and Berghain.

for music

I saw Nils Frahm once at Volksbühne and Lykke Li at Admiralspalast, and both were epic because of the great music but also the lovely venues. I like sitting down enjoying the music to really be focused and to see everything that’s happening on the stage.

for escaping

The forest Grunewald in the west of Berlin. It’s beautiful. I go there when I need to get away for a few hours.

for record shopping

I mostly go to random second hand record shops, or I’m ordering over the internet, but Spacehall can be a good place if I want to listen to different genres and find more new records.

for clothes shopping

Weekday is my one and only. Then I have a very talented friend, Julia Kjelsson, who makes really nice stuff.

for first date

I’m not really a date person, so I would suggest making dinner together at someone’s place. It’s much more relaxed and a better way of getting to know each other, than at a fancy restaurant etc., I’d say.

for inspiration

Walking/biking around in the city, maybe from Neukölln to Kreuzberg to Friedrichshain, just watching people and having a moment for yourself.

for walking

The old airport Tempelhof, which is now just a big green spot. In silence or listening to a good podcast, that’s how I often start my day.

for sleeping

I love my bed, so I’ll always choose my own bed.

for the best view

At the rooftop of the Neukölln Arcade you find Klunkerkranich. That’s a view for sure. You the basically see the whole city from there.

your favorite local place

Sorry in advance for the boring answer, but I will have to say the Bio Company Market around the corner, because I love cooking, especially good vegan food. I can be in there for a long time just looking at stuff and getting inspired. For me it’s a way of getting rid of stress and just being creative in a different way.
