International in Berlin: Sweden
Berlin is still a magnet for young people from all over the world. Artists, musicians, tourists, backpackers, students and more. Some stay just for a few days and some manage to settle down a bit. But what, if you get hit by „Heimweh“ (engl. homesickness)?
Or as a resident, you may want to know, what all these expats enjoy in their home. Here we go: a (incomplete) list of shops, restaurants and many things more, you may want to try. Today: How to live swedish in Berlin.
1. Café Stockholm/Prenzlauer Berg
A cozy cafe in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg, with selfmade „Kanelbullar“. Hmmmmm :-). There is always time for cake!

2. Café Valentin in Neukölln
Another cosy swedish cafe in Berlin. This time in Neukölln. And of course, after (or before) you try the Kanebullar in Prenzlauer Berg, you have to go to Cafe Valentin 🙂
