Let’s talk about Berlin

The German capital has been a regular haunt of Euroleague before but not in the new format. With Alba Berlin amongst the better known names on the continent, you’d think going big would be easy unless you actually paid attention, writes Emmet Ryan Wednesday night in Berlin and inside the final 20 seconds. Below the rim Rokas Giedraitis is fighting for and juggling the ball all at once before finally getting enough control to put it in. Alba win, 79-75, take the series 2-1, and are 4 wins away f...

Berlin’s Very Own Mona Lisa

Berlin can boast some impressive murals, and it’s no surprise that the newest addition to the bunch has drawn immediate attention. The huge version of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is impossible to miss. She occupies the side wall of the East Side Hotel in Friedrichshain and presents an interesting contrast to the often abstract artworks from the East Side Gallery, which is just on the opposite side of the street. The Berlin art collective Die Dixons has previously been involved in noteworthy co...

These Instagrammers show the REAL Berlin

We all know the glossy Instagram accounts that almost make you think Berlin is a permanently sunny resort where all you see are fit yogis running around with their cute puppies and the occasional elderly couple sitting on a bench in Tiergarten. Well, one look out of the window will suffice to realize that the reality is not all that ideal. But we love that about Berlin – its unpredictable weather, extraordinary characters, and the fact that some corners can get a bit rough. We found three Instag...

How You Can Fight Off Excessively High Rents

Sponsored.  Renting an apartment in Berlin has become outrageously expensive and doesn’t fit the anti-capitalist flair that many residents are here for. In fact, rents in Berlin have almost doubled in the last 5 years. The more often I talk to friends about the situation, the more I get used to it. And that’s even scarier. The other day, a friend who recently moved to Berlin told me that, she pays a staggering 920€ for 35m2 in Sonnenallee. That’s over 25€ per sqm! Allegedly luxuriously renovat...

My Top 11 Hostels in Berlin in 2019

Posted: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Berlin is a gigantic city. It stretches over 883 square kilometers and is home to over 3.6 million people. I hated the city when I first visited it. I just couldn’t vibe with the city. But the more I came back, the more I grew to love it. Berlin is cheap (always a plus for me), it’s home to some of the best art, culture, music, festivals, and tech companies on the continent. The food scene has also really blown up in recent years and you’ll find some of th...

When music takes us between pain and peace: Dimension Series mixes

Music can be wallpaper and fashion and groove and all those things – and sometimes those things are grand. But music can also be a torch to help us see out of the dark. The Dimensions Series of curated mixes this year took on those themes of metamorphosis – and how to find ways out of depression and darkness. http://staticdiscos.com/dimension/category/metamorphosis/ Mexico City-based artist and curator Oscar González of the wonderful Static Discos label gathered some significant names for t...

Berliners – We Have to Save our Trees From the Heat!

photo: Matthias Arlund The recent heat wave continues to be a living hell for all of Berlin. We can attempt to escape it by chilling by the lake or even getting out of town, but the merciless sun is not going anywhere. Although we humans might feel constantly drowning in sweat, the real ecological problem concerns the drought that is deeply affecting our trees. How can we save them? The heat wave is hardly interrupted by any periods of rain: if we don’t act accordingly, we might be witnessi...

Little Horror Stories from Awful Berlin WGs

But, for many it is the start of one storyline: “You, your room, and that WG”. For some this is just a short act on their way to “Me and my first own place”, for others it’s a longer narrative they won’t escape until their late thirties, or maybe they’ll never… It is a story that can take unexpected turns, creepy twists or just ends up being one absurd si...

One Night In Berghain

For me — and for many others — Berghain is like a church. A new-age religion. It's a place where you can forget yourself. It's a place where years later, those moments in the club will still come back to you, like memories of a trip to a parallel universe. The obligatory photo while exiting the club is like receiving a blessing; being a part of something special, something sacred.Berghain stays in your system forever.

Dating in Berlin: Why You SHOULD Date German Guys

I took me about a year of living in Germany to start feeling the challenges of life among Germans as a foreigner. Berlin had always been a dream for me, long before I even had any interest in partying, alcohol or other substances. I had always heard what everyone in the world seems to be hearing, that it is: a great multicultural place of freedom for artistic minds. So my first months living here were an exciting bliss even if I was working for a (rather particular) German family who lived nowhe...
