Berliners: Tim Wolff
15 June 2014 - Berlin
With Summerclash just around the corner we thought we'd get some of Berlin's best known residents together to share some of their favourite spots in the city away from Mellowpark.
Today, the man behind Tim Robot and The Blackjack Project, Tim Wolff shares some of his favourite haunts with us.
How long have you lived in Berlin?
About 7 years now.
What made you move to Berlin?
I was about to start working freelance when some friends talked about moving to Berlin. Lower cost of living and a new city seemed just what I needed that time so I took the opportunity.
What keeps you in Berlin and makes it a better place to live than anywhere else?
The same reasons that made me move here. Blading, friends, jobs, the urban art and music scenes and the lower cost of living compared to other european capitals. But I also love to get out of here, especially in the Winter.
The best place to eat in Berlin?
There's tons of good places. Impossible to pick one. Usually I just go to the ones closest to my place, so if you're in Neukölln, check out "From Hanoi with Love" in Hermannstraße. Tasty Vietnamese food for a good price and right around the corner is the Tempelhofer Feld, a great place to skate and chill.
The best place to get a coffee?
I don't drink coffee, but if you're just looking for a caffeine fix get yourself a cold Club Mate at the next "Späti" you'll be refreshed and super hip.
The best place to party?
I don't really go to partys. I prefer going to small music shows or hanging outside in the streets.
The best place to chill?
The parks! If you're around for Summerclash you'll see Berlin is a pretty green city. Also the lakes… just a few kilometres from Mellowpark is the Müggelsee you could just take the tram and your skates to get there..
The best place in the city to get inspired?
The streets! You can find inspiration everywhere, just wander around day or night and it might hit you.
The best place to see some history?
Some impressive old buildings and museums are right in the centre of the city in Mitte district and don't miss to visit the Berlin Wall.
The best place to shop?
EightDistro.com and The Blackjack Project Booth at Summerclash!
One piece of advice for people visiting Berlin?
Get some bikes and explore the city! Leave before the winter.
One vital item to take to the Summerclash?
Your ticket, and of course your Friends and some cash to spend at the best place to shop!
