Concerts, clubs, exhibitions, festivals and sports: Berlin is full of special events. Considering the many cultural aspects we try to share the unique things that happen here on a daily basis and give recommendations on where to go next.
Berlin is a crazy place to be in the summer, and so different from the rest of the seasonal turns. It doesn’t really matter if the weather is crap, it usually is, but the rush of tourists flocking in and out, as well as an extensive list of traditional summer events that range from street food
Since 2014, Audi is official partner of the Berlinale — Berlins grande film festival. To celebrate the occasion (and a moody German summer), the German car brand has introduced an extremely unique concept to the city: the open air cinema, but in flashy Audi cars and front row seats (as opposed to make-shift public viewing in the park). We
I have a very special relationship to skateboarding: I tried it once and hurt myself really badly, so I decided to crawl back to my spot in the shade and keep drooling over the sweet boys who were doing tricks on the curbs. Ever since those glorious skatepark days of my hometown have passed, I haven’t really been in
What’s better than the Championsleague finale? The Championsleague finale in Berlin! Yes, indeed. And while our local heroes Hertha are far, far, far, far, far away from being an actual part of the game, the contestants Barcelona (yay) and Juventus (nay) are just destined to deliver a wild and intense match. If you’re anything like me,
Fancy restaurants have it, Berliner Kneipen have it, nasty dive bars have it: a local hero called Henry. And if you’ve been around drinking in Berlin, you surely have met Henry before, too. He’s the tastefully designed and deliciously spicy mixer for every sophisticated drink. More specifically, Thomas Henry (born & raised in our beloved town and another
What would you do if you could start over, lead a new life, make everything right and become someone completely else? An immersive play lets you pretend you're somebody else. But you should watch out: Not only is death certain, but the play can easily become fate, a puppet master with its own intentions.
Street food markets are regular events in the city today, but I’ll never forget who kicked it off: the Bite Club at Hoppetosse. Finally, they’re back for the spring/summer season 2015. With new and exciting choices of snacks, foods and drinks, every visitor can dive into the magic of Open Air feasts. And since competition
God bless the new Berlin street food craze! All the markets and food stalls around the city regularly promise innovative new foods and a lively social atmosphere that has been missing from Berlin. But what if not only culinary creations, but also beverages are brought into the deal? That’s exactly what the Singleton Flavour Tour is
Berlin is a big enough city, and Facebook has been a great platform to share overviews of what’s going on in your network of friends. Whether someone is hosting an exhibition opening or playing a set in a club, if you have friends who’re in the cultural scene of Berlin, you’re probably drowned in Event invitations all the time
Don’t we all love a little turn up on a Tuesday? The AXE Black Shirt Release party at favorite Kreuzberg one-stop for sophisticated drinks and food, Parker Bowles, was delivered in what I like to call “räudiger Manier”: black drinks, black food, all black guests and most of them blacked out by the end of the night. The AXE
At any time in fashion history (I know a lot about fashion history), black was always the new black. It may always symbolize the same thing (namely “I don’t know how to dress right so I’ll just opt for the one thing that always works”), but especially ridiculously colorful dressed men can profit from this easy
Most people are surprised to hear that Neukölln has its very own museum. Even more if they realize that it is not the kind of cheesy “Heimatmuseum” they expect. Actually Museum Neukölln has a young team with an fresh approach. They curate very different works which circle around the many nuances of Berlins notorious neighborhood. This month Museum
A new year, a new number, an old routine. 2015 just kicked off and we are already facing dozens of events that will accelerate the rhythm of the city back to its regular hectic pace. CTM x Transmediale seem to be the most interesting of these festivities yearning for attention. Since 1999, CTM and transmediale have been taking place in
Mobile phone apps are a curse and a blessing. But sometimes they can be quite interesting, at least for a while. Location-based apps like Yik Yak (one that isn’t particularly popular in Berlin yet, but I hope this will change) have the potential to contribute to what happens around the city in far more spontaneous and flexible ways than
