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.
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
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
