Alternative Berlin’s Top Five For September

We closed our post last month with the excellent Berlin Graphic Days. We hope you had a chance to check that out, as well as some of the other awesome events we featured. It’s been a record-breaking year for us, with thousands of you choosing to take a tour with us whilst you’re in town. We run our tours all year round and are always busy but this summer; despite the also record-breaking rain, was intense! So we’d like to take this chance to thank all of our guides for being the best in the business! They also gave us some top tips for this pick of events.

Closing PARTY Summer 2017 // Baum Haus Comedy Open Air -Birgit&Bier-Schleusenufer 3- September 6th

We’re good mates with the team at Baum Haus Comedy. So they often sort us out with special offers and discounts for our guests. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on our Facebook page for info. Hosts Neil Numb and Dharmander Singh present a hilarious showcase of comedy talent in a great venue. You’re guaranteed a giggle and a great night out.

Berlin Swamp Fest 2017 -Zukunft am Ostkreuz -Laskerstr. 5 – September 14th-16th

This is a MASSIVE heavy DIY festival. Ostkreuz is going to be humming with a seriously solid line up of metal, doom, sludge, stoner, grind and crust bands playing over three days. You can go for the full experience or just pick one day of intense FACE MELTING. The full line up is listed in the event.

Nick Cave – Mercy on me Comic-Release Party – SO36-Oranienstr. 190 – September 22nd

Berlin adores Nick Cave. He’s an adopted son of the city, along with Bowie and Iggy, thanks to the time they spent here during the 80’s. September 22nd is Cave’s 60th birthday so it’s only fitting that it’s the night that Reinhard Kleist chose to throw the official launch party of his awesome new books, “Nick Cave-Mercy On Me” and “Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds”. Both revolve around the life and work of the prince of darkness and a suitable tribute night of live music; discussion and DJ’s surround the launch at Kreuzberg’s infamous SO36. Nick Cave, graphic art and music. What an event. Mercy On Me is surely set to become as big of a cult hit here in Berlin as Cave himself. Go get your copy!

Vegan Street Food Festival- Alexanderplatz – September 23rd

Eating Vegan in Berlin is easy. We are so lucky to have fast and tasty vegetarian and vegan food available all over the city. Many vegan foodies flock here as we have so many restaurants dedicated to the lifestyle, so it’s no surprise to see this big street food festival taking place smack bang in the centre of the city in September.

Monterey 4th Birthday Apocalypse – Danzigerstrasse 61 – September 24th

The Monterey Bar’s birthday parties are LEGENDARY. We’re big fans of this bars laidback atmosphere and rocking music selection. The Monty is a craft beer hot spot, with ten taps and a mind bogglingly HUGE selection of cans and bottles, but it prides itself on being a great pub first and foremost. We would hazard a guess from this event that the team are also big Metallica fans! You can expect some seriously rare and limited edition beers to be pulled out for this. Don’t miss the chance to help one of Berlin’s most beloved bars celebrate its birthday. The four horse men cometh!

We’ll be posting any other events we think might tickle your fancy to our Facebook page throughout the month. We’re also on Instagram at @alternativeberlintours and love seeing your snaps from out and about in the city so keep em’ coming!
