December tours don’t always have to be cold and grey, at least not if you choose Berlinagenten to colour your stay! Our customers from Kopparberg UK, famous for making Sweden’s finest cider, wisely chose to have a very colourful time in Berlin and we were aiming to paint their stay vividly.
To really reach into Berlin’s cool & hip scene, our cider-lovers chose the popular Urban Insider Tour. We knew we had found they key to our guests’ hearts when Henrik smashed away his terrific version of “Looking for Freedom” on the bus to the delight of everyone, right after we’d already seen the Brandenburg Gate (of course), the Potsdamer Platz, had strolled across the misty Oberbaumbrücke and had walked the Eastside Gallery, where David Hasselhoff, the undisputed godfather of freedom-looking, once became a Berliner.
Arriving at Soho House in the early evening, our guests’ eyes went wide when they found themselves embraced by the comforting luxury the house offers. Oh and don’t tell anyone – but we’ve heard one of Hollywood’s most famous film makers is shooting a movie in Berlin for the next two months and he’s resides at the Soho House. If you’re a paparazzi, forget this information immediately!
We then found ourselves surrounded by curious faces all around when slurping down one cocktail after another next to jade-green pool at the roof top bar: where would the trip go? It was top secret…
…until we finally entered the culinary gem that captures the city’s taste like no other: La Soupe Populaire. We love the English and their habits and here’s a great one: Dress like it’s summer. Berlin in december? No problem. Summer clothes. If they don’t get too warm. The staff at La Soupe Populaire surely don’t get to see that very often but they played it cool by serving them prosecco upon arrival, making them feel warmer immediately (if they ever felt cold anyway).
After the dinner we’ve had a few more cocktails (the x-mas edition cocktail had a chocolate Santa in it, woaah!) in the VIP section of an edgy bar located in the machine room of an old brewery. Our guests became eager to really drop the bomb for the night. They were excited to get a taste of the legendary Berlin nightlife, and they’d found the perfect travel agency to do so! Henrik made some quick calls and before long, we found ourselves on the backseat of six cabs, on the way to the famous Avenue Club. Elegantly we jumped the queue and flew right through to the dancefloor – a legendary party night that went well into the morning hours and well beyond!
Our cheerful guests arrived as 35 Kopparbergers, but left as 35 Kopparberliners. We love to entertain our guests, especially if they’re keen to rock the city with glam and style. Now that we’ve seen what cider can do to people, we really hope cider makes the breakthrough in Berlin soon. No one needs Club Mate anyway.
