Solo Summer Activities
The weather in Berlin feels like you’re in the height of summer and there’s so many things you want to do but realize you don’t have anyone to do them with. While Berlin constantly attracts people by the plane full, people also seem to leave just as frequently. Whether you’ve fallen victim to disappearing friends or the friends you’ve made have moved away, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on taking full advantage of what Berlin has to offer. Try some of these activities to fill up your free time – solo or not.
Feel like going dancing but don’t feel comfortable going to clubs by yourself? Motions
dance studio offers several classes in various dance styles with many lessons taught in English. Whether you want to join the Zumba class for all levels on Saturday or want to get back into dance with their professional ballet courses during the week, getting your body moving is good way to put a smile on your face.
Go to the movies
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t go to the movies by yourself. You can’t talk during the movie anyways so why not grab some snacks and a drink with a ticket for one. There are several movie theaters in Berlin that frequently show movies in english such as b-ware! Ladenkino
, Babylon Kreuzberg
, and CinemaxX
but be sure to check the film description for the letters OV (original version) or OmU (original version with german subtitles).
Catch some rays
Going to a park and reading a book or grabbing a drink outside a cafe can always be rewarding but why not take your outdoor activities to the next level? Ride your bike (or rent on
e of the many scattered around Berlin) to a part of the city you’ve never been before or go for a mini-hike to the Prussian Monument at Victoriapark
. Then treat yourself to some wine on the way out in the vineyard at the park.
With the influx of people in and out of Berlin it may seem like a lonely city at times. That’s why it’s important to make the most of the quality time you have with yourself. Self-care is important so treat yourself to a new outfit, take yourself out to dinner, or try something new so you don’t feel like you’re missing out on the fantastic Berlin summer that has finally arrived.
