Our list of Top fives for the month of April which traditionally is the month Berlin´s begin to open their hearts, minds and wallets and get set to party as the weather improves and summer madness is within reach.
Korean Roller Disco (https://www.facebook.com/events/1649848308572497/)
Start your Easter long weekend with a twist at the Korean Roller Disco that will take place Easter Friday at Prince Charles. This event will give you the opportunity to dong on a pair of skates, wheel-dance until your red in the face and devour some amazing Korean food provided by some of Berlin’s favourite Korean street food vendors.
Easter Fires (http://www.berlin.de/kultur-und-tickets/tipps/ostern/3408045-2404530-osterfeuer-im-britzer-garten.html)
If you are looking for a special German tradition this Easter that doesn’t involve Easter markets, egg hunting or egg painting, we recommend to check out one of the Easter Fire burning events. One of our favourite places to watch wood piles go up in flames, is the very tranquil Britzer Garten. Check it out on Easter Saturday evening.
Droneberg Fest (https://www.facebook.com/events/754295834620847/)
Later in the month on April 16th, Hamburg’s D.I.Y doom festival ‘Droneberg Fest’ spreads its dark wings and lands in Berlin’s famous punk venue SO36. If you’re sick of electronic music and want to hear some dark noisy tunes, we highly recommend this one day festival that features 2 stages of live music, art installations, a poster exhibition and more.
Persons of Interest (https://www.facebook.com/events/918640218187013/)
For the street art lovers, Berlin’s premier street art gallery Urban Nation is currently hosting an exhibition that features the work of 12 important Brooklyn street artists. Included in the line up are some of our favourite street artists like Swoon, Gaia and Cake. The exhibition runs until June 15.
Curious Fox Books (http://www.curiousfoxbooks.com/)
If you are looking for more of a quiet month this April, maybe you should drop by Curious Fox Books in Neukoelln and pick yourself up a new or secondhand English language book. This Irish owned book shop features a large selection of books for both adults and children. They also offer tea, coffee and snacks as well as host a variety of literature related events.
