What’s On In Berlin: June

Discover the very best restaurants, hotels and cultural attractions in Berlin this month

City Guide
Feargus O’Sullivan,

Kantine at David Chipperfield
This starkly chic new café/restaurant in the offices of architect David Chipperfield typifies stripped-down Berlin cool. Against a backdrop of concrete walls and huge windows, creative types tuck into well-priced modern German cooking. Busy from breakfast to early evening, Kantine shuts at 8pm.
Kantine at David Chipperfield, Joachimstrasse 11, 10119 Berlin, +49 (0)30 3384 4430

Apple Store
Its products may be available the world over, but Apple’s new Berlin flagship is one of the grandest technology shops anywhere. Just opened last month in a huge neoclassical building that resembles an opera house, the Berlin Apple Store’s interior is an airy, beautifully uncluttered showroom for the company’s latest products.
Apple Store, Kurfürstendamm 26, 10719 Berlin, +49 (0)30 5900 90000

Waldorf Astoria Berlin
Perched on the upper floors of a new 32-storey skyscraper, rooms at Berlin’s recently opened Waldorf Astoria hotel might just have the best views in the city. Modern and elegant in a plush rather than minimalist way, the hotel also contains Germany’s only Guerlain spa and Les Solistes, the new restaurant from much-fêted French superchef Pierre Gagnaire.
Waldorf Astoria Berlin, Hardenbergstrasse 28, 10623 Berlin, +49 (0)30 814 0000

Fête de la Musique
First imported from France in 1995, this free live music festival on 21June takes over almost half of Berlin for one evening a year. Playing anything from oompah-pah to techno, bands perform on more than 50 open-air stages across the city, with particularly dense clusters in the Mitte and Friedrichshain districts.
