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.
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
Well, talk about anti-climax… For the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city had planned a very intriguing and fantastic concept: the Lichtgrenze, a wall constructed of balloons that lit up the former border between West-Berlin and the GDR. After two days of illuminating (and thereby remembering) the division, the balloons went up
short notice is a new tag in which we will regularly introduce things, events, people or products in a brief manner because they really mean something to us. they are depictions of our personal tastes and will not necessarily have anything to do with berlin, but instead with our lives and with the things we want to
To transform an old railway station into an urban space for concerts, street food and happenings of diverse nature is a very good idea in and of itself already. But the Neue Heimat venue has actually also brought life into an almost forgotten area of the city, too (forgotten by me, mostly). Every street between Warschauer
Berlins culinary versatility is growing. You can see new (concept) restaurants and pop up bars appear on every corner. There are many who complain about the so-called demise of Berlins underground vibe. But if you’ve been eating out in this city long enough, you’ll surely appreciate the rising number of decent restaurants. Berlin has become
Two things convinced me to go to another festival in my lifetime: the Baltic Sea and the people who were committed to going with me. Although I had been disappointed before from my Fusion visit and a couple of other festivals, the Plötzlich am Meer Festival at the Polish coast kept its promises. A mix of good music
To celebrate their newly launched City Edition bottles, #Heineken have brought the Cities of the World campaign to life. In a first post, we have already introduced the Open Your City app and gave you some advice on how to go hard in Berlin-Wedding, one of our favorite Kiezes to discover. But the campaign entails more
I am not a big fan of art weeks and fairs. In general, I have little love for art. Not because I don’t appreciate the aesthetic, but because everything surrounding it is market and distraction. Sometimes it’s very hard to find the art between all of the booze-hunting VIPs. When it comes to the exhibitions my friends from
Remember the incredibly well done AXE Peace campaign we already reported about a while ago? The time has come to round up its achievements, which are abundant. With the Motto “Make Love, Not War”, which was prominently painted at the notorious street art corner of Falckensteinstraße, the campaign was also physically brought to life in Berlin.
Have you ever been to a concert in a table dance club? There’s a first time for everything, I guess. In a spectacular “This is so Berlin” manner, Converse have outdone themselves on grandeur. Schönebergs local exquisite playhouse “Golden Dolls” got ready for Berlins best dressed fashion and music kids. Impatiently, all were waiting for the million dollar
Next weekend (11. 09. — 14. 09. 2014) our beloved underdog districts Wedding and Moabit will transform into the cultural center of Berlin. At more than 300 different locations, visitors will be able to see and hear readings, performances, movies, exhibitions, concerts and happenings. Lofts, galleries and ateliers will open their doors to show off
External hard drives are the foundations of our digital society. Without them, there’s no big or little data to speak of. Since many of you freelance and hop from one desk to the next, we’re giving one Western Digital My Passport Wireless 2 TB External Hard Drive away! Let us know what you need your hard
CONVERSE have just made the Internet a little more … berlinteresting (aaaahaaaaaaahaha). As part of the #SNEAKERSWOULD campaign (WHAT WOULD SNEAKERS DO?), you can now download a Chrome/Firefox Browser-Extension called “The Ticket”. THE TICKET browser-extension will block all the annoying banner-ads on the WWW and substitute it with information about the next
Urgh, Berlin Festival. It’s one of those events where all people go “uhhhhhhhhhhh yeah, I’ve got like, super-free tickets, so I’m going for a minute or two even though it’s like, super-shitty”. Ahahahaha. I love that. Then again, that’s what people in Berlin usually say about any big name party, so I tried to detach myself from the prejudice and enjoy my
