Dip your toes into summer with actress Nina Hoss and our brand new Berlin guide.


Nina Hoss was born in Stuttgart, attended drama school in Berlin and in 2013 joined the Schaubühne ensemble. As well as working with the likes of Welsh rock band the Manic Street Preachers, and appearing in hit US drama series Homeland, Nina is also committed to social causes including campaigns to fight poverty and FGM. As part of our biannual guidebook, we chatted to Nina about her favourite spots in the city. 


A cool spot to meet friends? 

I like Ula a lot for its zen-like simplicity and great Japanese food. Cecconi’s is always a good idea for delicious pasta and Northern Italian food and when we are already in Soho House, we like to visit The Store for its feeling of being in a city that’s alive and growing. If you want to see what makes Berlin so unique, go to Markthalle 9 in Kreuzberg where the old school and new blood mix. Something I really love about Berlin is its ability to constantly reinvent itself and compromise.

Your favourite cinema for movies and ambience?

My first choice is the Kino International– not only for its fantastic Soviet architecture, but also for the moment when its wonderful huge golden curtain opens up and reveals the screen. It’s theatrical and sets the tone for a great movie experience.

Best venue for live music?

The Berlin Philharmonic for its amazing acoustics. My favorite place to watch a good rock concert is Huxley’s Neue Welt. The atmosphere there is quite intimate which is nice. For bigger events, the best place is the Berliner Waldbühne. It’s an amphitheater set in the middle of a forest and you’ll see the moon rise behind the stage as the night goes on –simply beautiful.

Your all-time top shhopping stores?

For a great Berlin shopping experience, I always go to Andreas Murkudis. Also, Schwarzhogerzeil is a beautifully curated shop. For beauty products and treatments, my go-to spot has to be MDC Cosmetic.

Sunday brunch with a group of friends?

Betty’n Caty. The two ladies who run it put lots of love into every detail. My favorite is the avocado sandwich with poached egg. They also serve it gluten free. And yes… you can get that with baked beans. Make sure to book a table.
