I only know one Vegetarian restaurant in Berlin, but most restaurants offer a selections of vegetarian dishes. Some only a few, others many. The one I know is called Einhorn at Wittenbergplatz, it's not a posh restaurant, is more of a bistro.

The best way to start your weekend in Berlin is doing a walking tour. There are several companies offering one. For example Brewers, Berlin Walks, Insider. It will give you a good overview of Berlin.

I couldn't find anything about beauty treatment on a boat. So I can't help you there.

My favourite sights are Gendarmenmarkt, Berliner Dom, Schloß Charlottenburg, Zitadelle Spandau.

To be able to recommend cafes, bars, restaurants it would be good to know in which area you are staying.

All I know is that we're staying at the Ibis which is quite central.

Thanks for your help!

There is more than one Ibis hotel in Berlin!

Go by train to "Hackescher Markt". Leave the station to the not-so-busy side. Your are now looking onto the Museum Island. Cross the bridge nearby, take in the domes and museums to both sides, take a rest at the university café and walk on to Friedrichstrasse. Turn right and cross the river again. If you want to you can make a 1 hour boat trip from there. Keep on walking till Oranienburger Strasse and turn right into that road. You now reached the Jewish Quarter with its splendid synagogue. Take a rest again in the nearby park or the beach bar on the river side or one of the many cafés. The smaller lanes right behind the synagogue are quite pleasant and offer dozens of art galleries (free of charge). Nearby is the train station you started from. Have fun!

O.k. In Mitte you have Oranienburger Str and at the top is a place called Tacheles that has bars and art galleries. It used to be a shopping mall before the wall fell down and then squaters moved in. You can pick up really cheap art here and there's some interesting bars, if a little touristic. Auguste Str of Oranienburger Str and near tacheles has lots of small cafes and restaurants plus a lot of independent art galleries.

A lot of young berliners hang out in Friedrichshain district. Boxhagener str and simon dach str has shops, bars and restaurants. At night it gets quite lively. Oh yeah and there's a few organic/veggie restaurants in that area. There's a home made veggie burger place that's very good at the bottom of Boxhagener str on the way to Ostkreuz Station opposite the A&O Hostal. Good luck and enjoy
