Where do celebrities sleep, eat and party in Berlin, Germany's capital of cool? Check out this list with favorite hangouts of international stars; from clubs and restaurants, to hotels, and festivals, here is where you can spot some celebrities if you are star-struck in Berlin.
Berlin International Film Festival, one of the most important film events in the world - star-studded parties included. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Colin Firth, George Clooney - you can get your daily dose of Hollywood celebrity on the red carpet just outside the Berlinale Palast (Marlene-Dietrich Platz 2) at Potsdamer Platz. Another way to see your favorite actor is to take in a cup of coffee at the Hotel Hyatt, just opposite of the Berlinale Palast, where the festival hosts many of its VIPs.
3. Hotel AdlonAnother hotel that stars love is Hotel Adlon; located opposite of the Brandenburg Gate, it is not only the grand dame of Berlin’s luxury hotels, but also an iconic landmark of the German capital; presidents and celebrities from all over the world stay in its elegant, old-world charm rooms. The 5-star Hotel Adlon offers lavish spa and gym facilities, a Michelin-starred restaurant with French cuisine, and unparalleled service. Other Berlin hotels with high celebrity factor are The Regent and Hotel de Rome.
5. BerghainAn institution in Berlin’s nightlife scene and by many celebrated as one of the world’s best clubs, Berghain’s throbbing techno beats and hedonistic vibe draws thousands of locals every weekend to party until sun comes up again. Celebs like to party here too - Lady Gaga was spotted recently - although the club is anything but glamorous; located in a former power plant, Berghain has a minimalist design with lots of concrete and steel. The club’s selective door policy is legendary and there is a very strict rule about no photos and filming inside the club.
Restaurant Margaux, just around the corner from the Brandenburg Gate, is one of Berlin’s premier gourmet restaurants, and it is popular among politicians, musicians, and actors – star conductor Gustavo Dudamel just dined at here. Margaux has an elegant and intimate atmosphere, with black marble floors, antique mirrors, and warm glowing Onyx counters and columns. The multilingual staff has an air of professionalism you rarely find in German restaurants
