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.
Many people come to Berlin because they’ve seen, or heard of, the life that you can live here. I get it: compared to other European or Western metropoles, Berlin seems free and affordable, tolerant and liberal. I’m sure we can find a plethora of already well-established characteristics that draw people to Berlin. But most people
My favorite German word is “Hochkultur”, because it implies that culture, per se, is low and that you have to willingly participate in some form of elevation to know what Hochkultur means. Unfortunately, not many people know that High Culture doesn’t need to be elitist, conservative and lame. Especially when it comes to classical
I always forget that this part of Friedrichstrasse exists. But walking up to the spotlit bright blue exterior of the BOULANGERIE FRANÇOIS, with all these fancy people queuing up behind the red rope in heels (HEELS! In Berlin!), I wonder why I’m not here more often. I’ve been tempted up here for the opening night
A while ago I was invited to a charming breakfast by GREY GOOSE Vodka at the Charlottenburg institution Kaffeehaus Grosz. An elegant breakfast seems to have nothing to do with vodka (you know, apart from day-drinking on a Sunday), but soon we were enlightened about the occasion: GREY GOOSE is opening a French Boulangerie in Berlin, offering fresh
Late night grocery shopping: every Berliners wish. While we usually waver from Späti to Späti, on rare occasions you can also find real, proper supermarkets open 24/7. Living the Berlin Dream! But it doesn’t have to stay a dream. The Disco Shopping Night by Warsteiner at Kaiser’s next Saturday should make it happen. DJ’s, disco lights
If you’ve attentively followed our Instagram account @findingberlin, you will most likely have noticed the abundance of Festival of Lights pictures in the last week. From the 9th to the 19th October, we were touring all around Berlin to take pictures and fill up the Heatmap. It was like catching Pokémon. But it was also
Political protests are a Berlin signature dish. They combine all the characteristics of the city: left-wing activism, loud music, spontaneous riots and an awareness of political and historical relevance of these gatherings. We have also had a history of documenting the most important demonstrations and rallies in the city (a few examples: Anti-GEMA, Stop
Dreadful, dreadful, those last days of summer. Everybody is scrambling to catch the last rays of sunshine in Berlin, and where more could you enjoy them than at the wonderful Spree with amazing street food and cold drinks? Singleton Whisky and Bite Club fused again for another treatment of Whiskey induced snacks. While Frank is
What do you do when you have an exciting new automobile prototype but you have yet no concession to race it in th public streets? Well, you build a see-through truck, of course, and parade it across Berlins iconic streets. The tour around Berlin made a quick stop at Blogfabrik and Tempelhof for us
After the first Berlin street market stop, which we had covered in the beginning of summer, the Singleton Flavour Tour continues with another halt at Bite Club Berlin next to the Hoppetosse (Arena). The Whisky brand aims to marry the complex flavors of their spirits with the incredible selection of the best street food snacks
Alright, I guess I am a little ashamed to say that for the past 20 glorious years that I have lived I had never attended a real, get in the dirt, tents-out, sun-kissed, music festival (a fact that Sara apparently approves of). I know. I’ve heard all about it. Maybe too much about it. I
STEAK NIGHT SHOW was put on by none other than Mediasteak (we can see how the theme ties in eh?), an online blog dedicated to showcasing their personal collection of notable documentaries and short films. It is a brilliant way to expose yourself to a world of film that isn’t so often publicized.
I once read in a Chinese (don’t ask) tour-guide about Berlin that one should only travel to the city between May and August, as the rest of the year is “rain season”. Little do they know that in practice, all year is rain season, with a dash of brutal, Game-of-Thrones style winter thrown in for
I remember my first year at the Adidas FANATIC tournament (and, if I’m not mistaken, it used to be called adicup and we took pictures back then, too, although the first post from 2010 was deleted since because I have the power to erase and modify my personal history AS I PLEASE). I was very intimidated
