What is there to say about a normal Friday in Berlin? It starts off like any day – people go to work, have lunch, maybe go shopping, but once the sun goes down the weekend officially begins!
This Friday is a special Friday tho! Friday the 13th is haunted, spooky, mysterious. It is a day to be spend among the people of the night, those who never sleep. In dark corners of fascinating nightclubs, moving to the rhythm and the heartbeat of one of the greatest cities there is.
Astra Kulturhaus is a great venue for all types of music – and only a short walk from the hostel!
This Friday Boris Brejcha presents Fckng Serious and brings tracks from his new album with him. The German DJ, that interestingly enough likes to perform in a mask, will now show his Minimal Techno to Friedrichshain – so don’t miss it!
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…
