The great outdoors, indoors

A vertical garden hidden at the back of Dussmann's bookstore, Berlin

Dussmann's self-styled 'culture store' is a Berlin treasure in more ways than one.

A fabulous bookshop arranged over multiple floors, it also stocks a wide range of music and movies and doesn't close until midnight on weekdays - trading hours almost unheard of in Berlin.

Throw in a much-frequented English language section and you're talking a seriously useful emporium.

But even if all this fails to entice, an impressive 'vertical garden' installed at the back of Dussmann's ground floor is well worth a visit.

The lush expanse of living plants is irrigated by trickling cascades, forming a soothing backdrop to a lovely cafe that certainly counts among Friedrichstrasse's hidden gems.

Books and gardens? It's a winning combination.
