The capital offers shows and musicals of various genres throughout the year. Whether it’s premieres of classic musicals at stage theatres, various shows in the magnificent palaces or numerous other productions at thousands of unique locations – the country’s most important metropolis has a lot to offer when it comes to events.
Among the most popular and important theatre spaces are definitely the Admiralspalast as well as the Friedrichstadt-Palast, the former being one of the oldest theatres still in existence. The two Stage Theatres – these would be the Stage Theater des Westens and the Stage Theater am Potsdamer Platz – and finally also the so-called Tempodrom, a large concert hall for the most diverse events.
Of course, the seat of government and also Germany’s largest metropolis is home to a number of diverse local magazines on a wide variety of topics.
It all started in Berlin in the 1970s, when the two city magazines „tip“ and „ZITTY“, which were
leading for a long time, entered the race. For many years they had a close head-to-head race for the broader readership and consequently a higher popularity.
activities listed in these magazines, but the times of rivalry between the once biggest city magazines have finally been passé since 2016 at the latest. Now both „tip“ and „ZITTY“ are published by one and the same publishing house. Since July 2020, the print edition of Zitty has been discontinued and is only visible online.
Since the 1970s, of course, a large number of other local magazines have been added – some of them even dealing thematically only with individual districts. The Pankow Guide and the Prenzlberger Ansichten, for example, would be two such district journals.
tip-bln – An important city magazine from 1972 with daily tips. Published as a print edition every 2 weeks.
zitty-bln – The second big weekly magazine, founded in 1977, many suggestions on brand new.
Not only the central metropolis of the country, the city undoubtedly also has the most eventful and at the same time equally exciting history of the last century to tell – a history marked by the Nazi dictatorship and its pivotal point, fierce final battles on European soil, subsequent capitulation and subsequent unconditional, forty-year division into East and West as a symbol of the division of an entire country.
The numerous museums tell impressive stories about these eras and events. The so-called Topography of Terror, the Jewish Museum or the Wall Museum at the former Checkpoint Charlie are just a few of the many museums and memorials that deal with the history of the last century.
However, if all this is a little too dreary for you, and if you are otherwise interested in history, the districts naturally have a whole range of other museums.
The German Museum of Technology and the Museum of Natural History alone deserve a mention here.
In Germany’s capital, there is something for everyone when it comes to personal development.
At Christmas: The most beautiful Christmas markets
There is a special atmosphere at Christmas. If you want to experience this, then you should take a hotel room in Berlin during this time. Berlin is the German capital and it’s no surprise that special hours await you during the Christmas season. You can attend a concert or simply go to the opera.
There is also the possibility of reserving a seat in a theatre. There you can experience Christmas fairy tales and see for yourself what is on offer. Of course, a visit to the numerous Christmas markets is also an experience.
With snow and sleighs, you will especially enjoy winter during this time, as everything is decorated for Christmas.
There is also a lot to do on the Easter holidays. For knight and medieval lovers, for example, there is a lot to experience at the annual „Easter Knight Spectaculum“ in Spandau. At the Easter festival in the citadel there is everything a knight’s heart desires: historical music, a spectacular fire show and various theatre performances.
If you’re not too keen on all that and prefer things to be quieter, the Easter market in City West invites you to stroll around and explore.
Alternatively, the Easter holidays in Germany’s largest metropolis can easily be spent outdoors in the fresh air with family or friends.
There are also picturesque places in the countryside for relaxing together, picnicking or even barbecuing.

German Unity Day
Spending the Day of German Unity is certainly something special. After all, it was in this very city almost 30 years ago that peaceful demonstrations by thousands upon thousands of citizens of the GDR finally bore fruit and literally brought down the Wall, which until then had been considered almost impregnable.
This paved the way for the long-awaited reunification of the two German states. It is therefore hardly surprising that a huge, three-day citizens‘ festival is held every year in the immediate vicinity of the Reichstag. The highlight of the festival is the Unity Concert in front of the Brandenburg Gate, which is traditionally always held on the evening of 3 October.
With our overview of events in Berlin, we hope you can rediscover Berlin.
