I'm going to Berlin this weekend for 5 nights before the Melt festival. Your Do's and Dont's, if you please......
Do go to Tachelles Gallery
Don't give Nazi salutes to police.
He lived there for a bit.
go to the Kunsthaus Tacheles.
its this amazing ex-squat turned gallery-studio space-party venue. An amazing, crumbling old building with loads of artists in various rooms working and exhibiting their stuff.
plus all the walls are plastered with grafitti, some of which is wicked.
It has a nice bar too, and a couple of cinemas.
ahhh cant wait to go back to berlin
I went there in April and it was great :)
Do: The Jewish museum - really really interesting and interactive, best museum I have been to.
The Holocaust monument is really cool and makes for some great photos.
Bar - Studio 54, a series of outside and inside bars in a run down building covered in grafitti, also barbq and art instalations. Bar right at the top has agreat view and there is also live music.
Club - Weekender, 15 floors up with as roof bar with panaramic views of berlin fucking excellent, although not easy to get in if you are a bunch of guys so maybe break your group up.
Get ready to hear lots of heavy house and David Bowie.
Man I fucking love Berlin.
(so long as you're not vegetarian, anyway)
trying to persuade my gf to try this. we finally did at the airport on the way home and it was just sliced up frankfurter in "curried ketchup".
is that normal?
as it's industrial and generally rubbish. Apparently where i went wrong was not going to the outskirt areas.
That said, there are things worthwhile doing in the centre, just don't focus your time entirely there. There are a few superb walking tours that are free, although tips are expected (10 Euro would do) - excellent way to see some worthwhile sites
epic pm sent.
as medulla mentioned, fuck mitte. hang out in kreuzberg, friedrichshain and prenzlauerberg - they shit on the centre.
it's lovely. Nice cheap thai place on Lychner str, best bratwurst is at the bottom of Danizger str, tiny imbiss it's been there for decades. Go to Madame Claude in Kreuzburg for great experimental gigs or Antje Oklesund in Friedrichshain.
also, on the listing i sent you i left out saturday because although there is a SHIT load listed for then, you'll have the most fun by hanging out in the parks and meeting people and finding the openair and houseparties.
Marcel Dettman & Matthew Dear are playing Saturday.
We get in at around 10pm and planning to go there, apparently they're not that keen on groups of tourists though. Oh well, we'll see.
i really really fucking miss berlin
:( x lots
WHO WANTS TO ELOPE WITH ME?
turn into a massive bear-shaped robot and fight off godzilla or something now? no?
as ampfel men, help people cross the streets. Skip around the Berlin bears..ok ehm no.
I am going there on monday before Melt. Basically, you're in Berlin. There is LOADS to do.
