While on rainy days my husband, The Wine Guy, and I love nothing more than to sleep in, snuggling with the cat, but when the sun shines we get dressed and wander out in the city to explore our surroundings. We live in Mitte – which literally means the “center” of the city – and within minutes of stumbling out of our front door we’re at the Unter den Linden, basking in the shadow of Brandenburg Gate or lingering on the lawns at the Reichstag. If we’re in the mood for brunch we might head over to the Oranienburger Strasse and if we’re in the mood for a stroll along the river we hold hands and weave in and out of the joggers fencing the Spree. Inevitably, these strolls detour to the Berliner Kunst Markt (Berlin Art Market) at Museum Island.

Paintings are sold alongside polish pottery, art glass and cute tiles commemorating local landmarks.

You can visit the Berlin Art Market every Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 5pm… and if it’s a sunny day you never know… you might bump into The Wine Guy & me making our Saturday morning rounds in Berlin!

  • oh the fun of living in a big city! we just get the same old sausage and cheese trucks on Saturdays in our town =P But the flower guys take up the whole middle of the markt and they're my faves!
    I wish getting to a big city wasn't such a project for us, you make me jealous!

  • Mary –
    Thanks so much for the compliment! Would you believe the jacket is vintage John Lewis bought at one of the vintage stores in Amsterdam? It came with THE CUTEST pink beret!

    Tina –
    Oh, I suspect we'd have some serious fun together… you never know when our paths will cross!

    Karena –
    Isn't that true – it's the "not knowing" that adds to the adventure!
