In the last month I curated collection of playful spots composed so that you can explore the playgrounds and family cafés of Berlin with ease. I designed three walks from breakfast through amazing playgrounds, ice cream shops, museums and beer gardens. Berlin is an amazing place for children with adventures around every corner. So here are my Top 5 theaters for children. Let me take you on a walk through my city.
