And further away is the Treptowers high-rise on Elsenbrücke, which at 120 meters is the tallest office building in Berlin, but not open to the public.

Borsigturm has offered views since 1922

You can also be transported to other places in the high regions of the Berlin air. The brick Borsig Tower from 1922 in Tegel at the north-western end of the city is often referred to as Berlin’s first high-rise. The rotunda at a height of 60 meters is open to visitors during events.

View from the “” Langen Lulatsch “”

The open-air platform of the radio tower on the exhibition grounds in Charlottenburg at 124 meters also offers a view over the Berlin sea of ​​houses from the west – known by the nickname Langer Lulatsch and also a classic of Berlin high-altitude tourism. The steel frame building, which opened in 1926 based on the model of the Parisian Eiffel Tower, broadcast the world’s first TV program in 1932. Up to a restaurant at a height of 52 meters, stairs can be used as an alternative to the small elevator. After that, for safety reasons only the partially glazed lift is released. It tingles in your stomach even while driving.

Great view from the listening station

An ascent to Berlin’s highest peak, the Teufelsberg, promises a touch of trekking. The hump on the edge of the Grunewald is not a real mountain, but a green heap of rubble. After the Second World War, the shell of the defense technology faculty, which was to be built as part of the world and imperial capital Germania planned by the Nazis, was blown up. The plateau with the former listening station of the Americans at 120 meters above sea level according to the latest measurements may only be entered as part of guided tours. The Teufelsberg is also used in wind and weather: paragliders visit it. And in winter there is a ski slope and a cross-country ski run is groomed.

Fly properly with the Hi-Flyer

However, the weather can put a spell on the bill when driving the Hi-Flyer in Zimmerstrasse. “” I was at 110 meters, you saw what a party that was all with me, “” says the man in the flight jacket. He has just got out of the ring-shaped mesh basket and has finished the test flight every morning with “” one of the largest tethered balloons in the world “”. His conclusion: It is too windy, although there is no breeze on the ground. Later in the day it goes upstairs. When you arrive at 150 meters, you notice differently than on the tall buildings: You are flying.

A park full of impressive architecture

The imposing park, which in addition to the palace itself also houses a mausoleum, the Belvedere and the orangery of Charlottenburg Palace, is definitely worth a visit for architecture fans. The orangery of Charlottenburg Palace was built from 1709 to 1712 by order of King Friedrich I. The original purpose of the light-flooded baroque building was to house the sensitive collection of precious Prussian citrus plants. Since the orangery of Charlottenburg Palace is privately owned, it cannot be visited. However, those who want to see the baroque building from the inside have the opportunity to attend numerous concerts and cultural events.

The mausoleum in the park was built in honor of Queen Luise von Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Since her widower, King Friedrich Wilhelm III. wanted to have the mausoleum erected as quickly as possible, surplus materials from other construction sites were used, such as columns from Oranienburg Palace and steps from the park in Sanssouci.

Extend the tour of Charlottenburg Palace to the park

In addition to the mausoleum, the Belvedere in the park can also be visited with the so-called Charlottenburg + ticket. According to the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg, the ticket is valid for a visit to the palace and the houses in the palace gardens, with the exception of the orangery and costs 17 euros (13 euros) reduced.

Beads for the watermelon punch

First, prepare the watermelon ready for consumption according to the recipe. To do this, divide them in half and remove the larger cores. Separate two columns with the shell. These are cut into triangles and are later used for decoration. The remaining pulp is extracted from the melon using a ball cutter and goes straight to a jug. Proceed similarly with the honeydew melon. Divide the melon and scrape out the stones. Now the ball cutter is used again. Mix the watermelon balls with the honeydew melon balls.

Now peel the limes with a potato peeler so that thin spirals are created. Put the squeezed lime juice in the jug. Now mineral water is poured on. You can use the set aside melon corners and the lime peel for decoration – a simple recipe with great visual impact.

The classic made from chocolate and cream

It warms up and tastes delicious. In the USA it is often decorated with marshmallows: one of the classics of sweet cuisine is hot chocolate, which is particularly tasty when prepared by yourself. With this recipe you can quickly conjure up the hot cups on the table.

For two servings you need:

300 ml milk 100 ml cream 75 g chopped chocolate 1 package vanilla sugar 1 teaspoon sugar

Pour milk, cream, chopped chocolate, vanilla sugar and sugar in a saucepan and slowly heat the contents, stirring constantly. When the chocolate has melted and the drink has a creamy consistency, pour it into cups. Alternatively, you can use two teaspoons of sugar and the pulp of a vanilla pod for sweetening.

Serve the sweet temptation in coffee mugs or tea glasses. “So that the hot chocolate stays warm longer, you can preheat the glasses with boiling hot water before you pour the chocolate,” says the online edition of the magazine “Essen und Trinken”. Then decorate the whole thing with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or cocoa powder. 

Hot chocolate for adults

If you want to prepare hot chocolate for adults, there are recipes with a shot. For four servings of white chocolate with liqueur you will need:

700 ml milk 250 g chopped white chocolate 100 ml cream 3 to 4 tbsp liqueur (coffee or egg liqueur)

Slowly heat milk and chocolate. When all the chocolate is melted, place the saucepan on a cold plate and stir in the liqueur. Pour the mixture into four glasses and add creamy, but not too firm, whipped cream. If you want, you can sprinkle the white chocolate with a little cinnamon.

Another alternative for adults is a rum chocolate that warms you through and through on icy days. For this you need:

100 g chopped whole milk chocolate, 500 ml milk, 125 ml cream, 1 pack of vanilla sugar, 4 tablespoons of brown rum

Melt the chocolate in the milk, add the rum and vanilla sugar and pour the mixture into three or four glasses. Whip the cream until creamy and spread it on the rum chocolate.
