Berlin’s popular art scene & insider, art tours

Along with its intriguing history Berlin offers visitors the opportunity to witness/experience an energetic multi-cultural metropolis always trending in art and lifestyle/in which new trends in art, architecture, and design of all kinds flourish.

With some 350 contemporary art galleries the “Berlin Biennale” and the “Gallery Weekend” – a must see for art lovers. Berlin is home to over 20,000 (inter)national artists. Once again, not to be missed is the combination a selection of major classical museums (Neues / Pergamon Museum, Hamburger Bahnhof) to small hidden “art spots” and studios/ateliers.

Architecture

Berlin’s unique dynamics may be assigned/explained or best understood through both the post-wall urban development as well as to the use and re-use of abandoned areas and buildings by internationally acclaimed architects who now showcase their skills at exactly these locations.

This unique mixture of old and new is Berlin’s secret: formerly unused areas – some having historical significance – have been transformed into cultural meeting places: a living history to be discovered and lived.

AvantGarde Design : Made in Berlin

“Made in Berlin” is an international trend. Fashion and lifestyle sectors keep expanding, evolve and revolt. Currently over 800 labels are at home in Berlin – from upcycling to high fashion. Sustainable products, furniture designers, and interior decorators are part of the creative scene. Twice a year the “Fashion Week” draws an international crowd of buyers, journalists, and aficionados. In Berlin you will find newcomers, innovators and established brands living in a uniquely Berlin symbiosis.

Food and Lifestyle

Berlin is a culinary center. You will find internationally known restaurants and celebrity chefs, innovative styles of cooking, and the cuisine of many nations. Berliners are also fans of “pop up” kitchens, urban gardens, and efforts to harvest and prepare organic food. We can introduce you to artists, craftsmen, restaurateurs, and shop keepers who live, work & define Berlin. One can maintain there is uniqueness to the Berlin understanding of “foodie”.
