48 Stunden Neukölln

48 Stunden Neukölln is a vast experience of Kiez-Art and, of course, nightlife.
18 Jun ’12 by Sara Events, Street Life

I find that Berlin, unlike most other big cities on an international scale, offers a vast landscape of various cultural activities – for everyone. That means most of it is free. From the rave to the spontaneous theater to the open galleries to the big events such as the Karneval der Kulturen.

Last weekend, 48 Stunden Neukölln was a perfect example for how it should work: every gallery, restaurant, bar, or even private place, was invited to take part in an open Festival of Arts. The point with these things is not just to attract those who know about art, but also those who pass by randomly and can possibly find some interest in the things that are displayed.

All in all, 48 Stunden Neukölln feels like a massive subcultural happening with many adventures to expect.

  1. You should announce events like this. I mean, what good is it reading how awesome something somewhere was after it happened? It’s more like Berlin Found than Finding Berlin.

  2. Dear Anon, I understand what you’re getting at, but we do announce these events on our facebook site (www.facebook.com/findingberlin). Unfortunately we’d be working day and night if we put up announcements for everything on the site too.

    To keep in touch with what’s happening in the city, you can also sign up for newsletters like Sugarhigh (www.sugarhigh.com) – they’re always on time with the newest upcoming stuff. But I’ll consider your criticism, maybe we can find a way to collect upcoming events once a week or something like that.

  3. Great post. I couldn’t make it down there so I appreciate being able to do so vicariously through your blog.

  4. This year I did not discover a lot of interesting places/art/stuff like in previous years… maybe I was on the wrong track only checking the hip kreuzkölln area. But burgers at BBI were again damm phantastic!

  5. Mac: I didn’t go last year, so I can’t compare. But yep. BBI is AWESOME. Did you try the burger of the month? It’s so good it makes me want to die inside.

  6. Feine Fotos, Danke
