Top 5 things to do in Berlin November 2022

We had some amazing golden autumn days but November is here and it’s definitely time to get cosy and warm in Berlin. Here our Top 5 tips for November:


Get inspired and maybe pick up some early Christmas presents at Basaar CONVENTION. After a break in 2020 and 2021, the convention returns once again this year between the 2nd and 6th of November at Messegelände Funkturm. Manufacturers and traders from 55 countries present their crafts, designs and natural products. It ́s a marketplace of cultural exchange and all fairly produced for the planet and people.

Grab a book or some friends or go alone without distraction as for sure you will get into a conversation with other guests at Wahrhaft Nahrhaft in Friedrichshain. One of the most beautiful cafe´s in Friedrichshain where you fell like you’re back in the 2000s with old second hand furniture and the most comfy “Tea at grandma`s ” athmosphere. They have great handmade down to earth drinks, sweets, soups, sandwiches and amazing cakes and quiches. All of course with a vegan friendly selection as well and super fair prices. Here the website to get inspired: :

Winter is always the time for MOVIES. Instead of binge watching series we recommend checking out the various independent, alternative and art house cinemas in the city. Here is a little selection of where we guides hang out after the tours:

Tilsiter Lichtspiele – one of the oldest cinemas opened in 1910 in Friedrichshain

Sputnik am Südstern – with carefully selected films in a non-conformist atmosphere

Sweat baby sweat! There are loads of SAUNAS in Berlin to heat up a bit and you definitely have to check out the firetruck sauna in FIT freie internationale Tank stelle. It ́s a great little hidden old petrol station in Prenzlauer Berg with events and great drinks in summer and the FIREFIT sauna in winter. A creation of artist Dida Zende, the sauna was handcrafted in 2012 and is now open again Wednesday to Sunday 6-10PM. Here is the website with all details and fotos

If you have a bit more space in your courtyard or plan to go camping, you could also rent a barrel sauna here and they deliver it to wherever you want to sweat

If you want to jump into a cold lake after your sauna session don’t miss the opportunity to give the Strandsauna Plötzensee at least one visit this winter. Check out their website here
