A good breakfast defines the day
Distrikt speciality coffee shop is located on a quiet street in Berlin Mitte, between Nordbahnhof and Rosenthaler Platz train stations. The trendy interior is buzzing with good energy and the smell of freshly brewed coffee welcomes you as soon as you enter. It’s so nice seeing cafés and restaurants being busy again. Kick back, linger and enjoy those slow mornings.
Craving for some sweet treats for breakfast? Distrikt Coffee prepares their beautifully presented selection of tasty cakes in house, whilst also stocking their pastries from Kreuzberg´s Albatross Bakery. If a sweet breakfast is not really your cup of tea, they also have an all-day breakfast and lunch menu featuring the best local produce, and the word on the street is that their eggs benedict is an absolute must!

Britzer Garten Park
Your green oasis in the heart of berlin
Do you sometimes feel like you just need to escape the urban reality of life in Berlin? What better time to go for a walk in the Britzer garden park than when the trees have dressed themselves in beautiful autumn colours. Britzer Garten takes environmental topics seriously, and attracts its visitors with a large range of opportunities and activities to learn and deal with the natural environment of the park.
Alexis loves to go for long walks in-between the trees and the beautiful flora of the Britzer Garten. It's interesting to know that the park has a small part with medicinal herbs, some of which MontOlympe uses in their products.
