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.
The annual Ars Electronica exhibition at the Automobil Forum Unter den Linden keeps blowing our minds away. The exhibition, which concentrates on the intersection between technology and art, has opened its gates again a couple of days ago and we couldn’t help but be astonished at the works of the many talented artists. The Ars Electronica
We’ve been seeing some horrible weather lately, but that really comes to no surprise — or does it? It’s not like Berlin is usually blessed by awesome temperatures and too much sunshine to cope. That doesn’t mean we’re not ready to spend our summers outside. In fact, most Berliners don’t fear the storm, they embrace a rave in
“If the drinks ain’t free I’m not coming!” should be tattooed across my forehead. So many vernissages and openings in this city — I guess at some point you just have to go by certain criteria. There are good exhibitions and bad, but usually I don’t see a lot of the works because the crowds are in my way. So
Memories of parties are always a bit of a blur. But I do tend to get a bit cheesy remembering all those moments full of love. Like when you’re super exhausted after dancing and laughing all night, but you still don’t want to go home because THIS song, I love this song, and I need to stay. After a couple of years of
As if the Kitchensurfing concept wasn’t exciting enough, the makers of the culinary networking website have thought about a new idea on how to connect foodies with their local creative chefs. The Kiez Eats is a weekly program hosted by different cooks that invites interested people into a night of superb food. With a bit of a workshop-feeling going on
My Lightroom library just told me that I have more than 30.000 pictures on my drive. I collect them since I started taking digital pictures back in 2002. Before a couple of months it was the first time I actually printed out 500 of them and had the chance to finally look at them outside a computer monitor. It was love! Now
If you love to ride bike you should definitely know Fahrtwind Berlin. They are an open group of riders and organize great events in and around Berlin. Also have a look on there Facebook Page to get the latest news, fun facts and other stuff all around the bicycle biz. Back in the summer we had
It’s really hard not to have fun at a Halloween party. What with all the costumes and overdosing on a) sweets and b) booze, people who don’t have fun on Halloween are probably the same ones who shrug and light up a cigarette when seeing a pug puppy. If you’re THAT kind of person, I hate you by principle.
The last time I went to the I EAT YOU dinner I returned arm in arm with a stranger, cheering and hollering the whole way back home. I still don’t quite remember who that was, why it happened and how I survived. Needless to say I was excited to hear that the I EAT YOU dinner series was to be revived at newly
Kreuzberg is a magnet and melting pot of sheer creativity. The people who live and work in our favorite district of Berlin all seem to be at least a little bit crazy about their lives here. Whether hanging out at Görlitzer Park or raving the night away at your favorite club, it’s the many different layers and
The last two days were all in the name of one very remarkable part of Berlin: the BLOCK in Kreuzberg, comprising of Adalbert-, Oranien– and Skalitzerstraße and the streets within their proximity. The Rock the Block exhibition/kiezfestival was brought to life by Backjumps, a Kreuzberg located urban arts initiative and magazine, in cooperation with the
Teufelsberg has long been a very popular “urban exploration” spot for tourists and wanderers alike. I’ll spare you the elaborate story on the artificial hill with the listening station on top of it by simply pointing you to the relevant Wikipedia article. But there it is now, a former US-listening station, nowadays lying in ruis but remaining
