With this being one of the hottest weeks Berlin has seen in a while it’s easy to forget that the city is not all sweaty train-rides and lukewarm beer. Grab a towel and relax by the beach or cool off and go for a swim!
A ticket at Strandbad Wannsee only costs 5,50€, a reasonable price, considering a dip in the cool lake might just save you from overheating…
Check out Holzmarkt25 and chill authentically Berlin-style by the water.
The cult place-to-be Bar25 had to close in 2010 and left many Berliners without their favorite location to spend the weekend. It was a venue, that made people feel like the day had more than 24 hours and that life is good.
But finally, on the 1st of May this year, Holzmarkt25 (re)opened. It is bigger and features the same vibe, that make it an amazing reincarnation of something many thought couldn’t be recreated. But judge that for yourself and visit Holzmarkt25!
Starting today Kesselhaus acoustics presents six Tuesday nights filled with live, acoustic music. Indie, Rock, Pop, Kleinkunst – it’s always a surprise and always worth it.
The concerts take place at KulturBrauerei and are completely free (even tho donations are appreciated). The performing musicians can be indie-stars or newcomer, starting 6pm they will all sing from the bottom of their heart, just for the attending Berliners and Berlin visitors.
Since summer has finally arrived even in Berlin, it is time to properly enjoy it. A great way to spend your day is of course by walking along the river, sitting in the shade or maybe even going to a museum that has proper air conditioning.
Another great option is to visit Klunkerkranich: The rooftop bar that grants you an amazing view and sells good beer for moderate prices. You can see the whole city from up there and even enjoy the sunset.
With more and more people voting for the right-wing party Afd, Berlin Clubs want everyone to know that “Nazis are not on the guest list”. The techno community is everything the Afd hates: inclusive, anti-racist, queer and progressive. That’s why thousands of people walk and party this Sunday – to show that Berlin is love, tolerance AND good music. Meeting point is Hansaplatz at 11am.
If you’ve never been to the Karneval der Kulturen in Berlin you have missed on one of the best representations of the essence of Berlin culture.
Once a year for a whole weekend all Berlin comes together to celebrate its colourful and unique, multi-cultural, vividly beating soul with a big street festival that spreads from Hermannplatz in Neukölln all the way to Möckernbrücke.
Karneval der Kulturen is an invitation to everyone to experience the cultural, gastronomical and musical variety of the city. It’s easy to spend the whole weekend strolling from stall to stall, watching bands play in the streets or to take in the whirlwind that is the parade on Sunday.
Every Thursday the amazing Hamburger Bahnhof opens its doors longer than usual: you can experience some of the worlds greatest artists from 10am to 8pm! Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol are just some of the names you will come across in this one of a kind exhibition. Even the building itself looks truly stunning and is conveniently located near Hauptbahnhof. So even tho the weather is almost too nice to stay indoors – this museum is a must for Berlin visitors!
