The summer in Berlin is nearing an end and visitors now have the chance to experience the city in a more relaxed and unique way. Inspire your readers to visit the many cultural highlights that Berlin has to offer, from Museum Island – a UNESCO world heritage site to Brandenburg gate – a symbol of freedom and German unity. While some limitations still apply, now would be the perfect time to visit the world-famous Nefertiti at the New Museum without too many bystanders.
You can find out about some exciting news from Berlin such as the project STUDIO BERLIN opening this fall. Please find more ideas of what Berlin offers to visitors in autumn below. And learn about the hygiene concepts from partners around the city that will keep our guests safe.
Berlin continues to offer a never-ending array of cultural events. Even though some have been limited due to the pandemic, others have developed creative concepts in the meantime and are now preparing to open-up again after the summer break for concert and opera houses, theaters and performance spaces. Each venue is developing a hygiene concept based on the measures deemed necessary by the senate to make sure that visitors will be safe and comfortable. We for one cannot wait to listen to captivating concerts, watch impactful theater pieces and be inspired by performers and dancers on stage again. We hope to share this excitement with you and your readers.
A new and exciting project this fall will be the opening of STUDIO BERLIN on Sept. 9th. STUDIO BERLIN is a collaboration between the Boros Foundation and Berghain. Until the reopening of the famous techno club, an exhibition – organized by the Boros Foundation – will show the work of more than 80 contemporary artists who live and work in Berlin. The exhibition will focus on the studio as a space of contemplation and production. Guided tours through the exhibition will be offered on the project’s website.
Berlin never stands still. Even now, new openings are regularly on the agenda. On August 23, 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin reopened its revamped and modernized permanent exhibition. Here, visitors can trace the history of the Jews in Germany from the middle ages to the present and gain insights into the diversity of Jewish culture in the multimedia-exhibition. Since 1 April 2020, the curator and museum manager Hetty Berg has directed the museum with its impressive architecture by Daniel Libeskind.
Clean and Safe
Safety and hygiene standards are at the front of any traveler considering a trip in these times. That is why Berlin’s hotels have implemented convincing hygiene concepts to allow for a carefree stay. Our hotel partners are strictly following all necessary hygiene measures. A number of boutique hotels have even developed their own seal called “Clean and Safe”. With this seal, they guarantee the highest possible safety standards for the well-being of their guests and employees. Contact-free check-in, employee trainings and clear communication about the hygiene measures allow guests to relax and feel at ease throughout their stay in Berlin.
The colorful season
Fall is just around the corner and with it, Berlin usually attracts many visitors to its annual light festivals. The Festival of Lights will be taking place this year from Sept. 11-20th. There is no better way to visit the city’s remarkable sites dipped in colorful and creative light installations than during a beautiful evening walk outdoors at a safe distance. “Berlin leuchtet” will take place from Sept. 25th to Oct. 10th.
New congress fund for Berlin’s event industry
With a new planned congress fund, business events in Berlin will in future be financially supported by the city according to certain criteria. The details of the application are currently being worked out and will be published soon. The congress fund is intended to help attract more events to Berlin and strengthen the position of the German capital in the internationally competitive market.
The district of Treptow-Köpenick is ideal for a trip off the beaten path. An autumn walk along the Müggelsee or through the old town of Köpenick are just a few examples of what Berlin’s oldest district has to offer. Visitors can also experience Berlin’s industrial heritage by visiting the Schöneweide Industrial Museum.
