Where to Stay // Arte Luise Kunsthotel
Housed in an 1825 residential palace, the artist-designed rooms of Arte Luise Kunsthotel showcase an eccentric range of themes—from 1920s cabaret to a tribute to Edward Hopper.
Morning // Museum Island and Afternoon // Gallery Walk

Morning // Museum Island
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, Museum Island includes the reborn Neues Museum, as notable for its wartime bullet holes as its bust of Nefertiti.

Afternoon // Gallery Walk
Galleries specializing in contemporary painting, sculpture and photography continue to sprout up along Auguststrasse in Mitte; Eigen + Art, Berlin Art Projects and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art are among the most interesting.

Though the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is under renovation until 2014, the talented ensemble continues to perform at the restored Schiller Theater in Charlottenburg.

Dinner // Zagreus Projekt
Following the trend of secret supper clubs, chef/artist/gallery owner Ulrich Krauss hosts a small group of diners in his basement studio for food that imitates art.
From contemporary galleries to the opera, the city is home to scores of artists, musicians and other creative types.—Tanvi Chheda
