Please advise where to go out

by ann77

Hello there! We are 2 girls aged 30 (straight ones:) traveling to Berlin for a long weekend. Could you please give some hints where to go out at night - some kind of bar/cafes street/area, or maybe some lovley night clubs playing pop or house music (preferably quite centraly located. I did some search in the internet but there are just plenty places and it's nearly impossible to choose, so I am pretty sure for you locals it shouldn't be a problem:)If possible could you give me couple of exact names of the clubs/bars as we don't have enought time to explore more places and would not like to spend all nights out running around the city-center:)

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Hm, not my stile, but I guess you'll like The Matrix, Warschauer Platz 18
10245 Berlin (subway + S-Bahn: Warschauer Strasse), http://www.matrix-berlin.de.
As far as I know, they play mostly House, but of course not always.

Berghain is one of the most sought-after clubs in Berlin and plays mostly Techno and House: http://www.berghain.de/
Berghain, Am Wriezener Bahnhof 20, 10243 Berlin (S-Bahn: Ostbahnhof).
Admission fee and prices for drinks are on the steep side, though, and door policy is said to be rigid, but as tourists (and females on top of that) changes are that they will let you in.

And perhaps read my tip on Kulturbrauerei:
http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/c8106/12626/5/
A traditional and more relaxed club than Berghain and Matrix with a mixed audience (aged 20 - 50) would be Frannz. But I'd suggest to just walk around and through Kulturbrauerei and see what "kind of people" are lining up in front of which of the 7 clubs Kulturbrauerei accomodates.

Have fun.

Areas for going out:

- Oranienburger Straße and Hackescher Markt (close to each other) in Mitte
- Simon-Dach-Straße and Boxhagener Platz (close to each other) in Friedrichshain
- Bergmannstraße and Oranienstraße in Kreuzberg
- Kastanienallee, Kollwitzplatz (preferably restaurants) and Lychener Straße/Pappellallee/Helmholtzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg
- Savignyplatz in Charlottenburg (preferably Restaurants)
- Goltzstraße/Akazienstraße/Winterfeldtplatz in Schöneberg

Clubs for you:
- The mentioned matrix (but rather young crowd)
- Weekend near Alexanderplatz (usually only non-vocal house, great location, on the expensive side)
- Felix (posh club at the backside of Adlon Hotel)
- Adagio (very touristy club with 30+ crowd at Potsdamer Platz)
- Maxxim near Bahnhof Zoo (on the more expensive side, rather young crowd, 18 to 30)
- Soda Club (many floors, very mixed crowd, free entry for women until 1 o'clock I think)
- Bungaluu (posh club in Mitte)


Berghain's a must, but it's more on the techno-side.

Travel Tips for Berlin

The Big Fun of Waiting at Traffic Lights

by Kakapo2

You do not only find them in Berlin but also in other East-German towns – and I just love them! I kept on photographing those Ampelmänner and Ampelmädchen with and without bicycles everywhere we went in the East because they are so much more enjoyable than the traffic lights for pedestrians we are used to in the west.

The waiting and walking icons have a lot more personality than those in the rest of the world, they look so much more alive and individual, and dynamic. Especially the girls with their braided hair are a delight, and you will also be pleased of the Ampelmann with bicycle.
(They have also Ampelgirls in Amsterdam and Copenhagen but believe me, those Ossi-girls are the most delightful ones.)

Those cute Ampelmänner and Ampelmädchen have become big business for a designer who saved them from extinction. In souvenir shops you get the Ampel guys and girls printed on T-shirts, shopping bags, notepads, corkscrews, footballs, umbrellas, jandals, glasses, breakfast bowls, coffee cups, as gummi guys, rubber gums, pasta, jewellery, bathing sponge, fridge magnets, and so on, and so on.

Unfortunately the very good website where you could learn more about the history and the products is rather slow… But perhaps you hit it on a lucky day...

A guy named Karl Peglau invented the Ampelmann in 1961. The East Germans (we call them Ossis…) loved them so much that they became TV stars in 1982. They appeared as animated characters in traffic education programmes for children. Incredibly enough, after the reunification the Besserwessis (the West-Germans who know everything better…) started to replace the wonderful Ossi-Ampelmännchen by our boring western Euro traffic light guys.

The already mentioned designer from Tübingen saved them from the junk yards. He made his first products with the original glass panels. And suddenly discussions started throughout the land, and even the experts had to admit that the Ossi Ampelmann was not only cuter but also safer because of its bigger illuminated area. In 1997 they came back to the traffic lights and bring so much delight to so many people.

Nowhere it is more fun to wait at a traffic light than at one with the Ampelmann or Ampelmädchen of the East. In fact, I did not even walk when the light turned green because I first had to photograph the running girl with the flying braids LOL The same in Dresden and Leipzig… A clear bonus for the East!

The crazy thing is that sometimes you find a mixture of East and West Ampelmänner at the same intersection. This happens where federal and communal roads intersect in the East. The federal agencies (Besserwessis…) prefer the western icons, the eastern ministeries favour the eastern icons for highlighting their eastern identity.

I think it would not hurt anybody in the West to admit that not everything in the East was bad, especially not this harmless and delightful Ampelmann. We do not make the Ossis better Germans by taking away their little joys of daily life. What narrow-minded brains bureaucrats can be!

http://www.ampelmann.de/

Update January 2010

Karl Peglau, who invented the Ampelmann, has died on 29 November 2009 at the age of 82. Until his death he went to the office - where they market the Ampelmännchen - nearly every day. Also, an opinion change has taken place in the West, you can now increasingly see Mr. Peglau's funky figures at traffic lights.

The Love of Flowers

by grishaV1

Most Germans love flowers very much, and you see often those riding the bahns carrying them home in the evenings or perhaps to the friend's home. I see more people with flowers this way that grocery items, eating foods or drinks.

It is polite to bring flowers to your host's home, or when visiting. Many flower shops like this one can be found in any neighborhood. Also, in many of the main U-bahn stations like the one at Ku´damm and Zoologischer Garten you can find little shops which sell arrangments and bouquets. It doesn´t need a holiday to bring flower but here are some of the more known German holidays. In spring and summer, I've found that a gift which can be planted in the garden is a very welcome and special.

by stijn_swinne

Bauhaus, in Dessau, a 100 km from out of Berlin. Bauhaus is the famous art style and school from

1919-1930. The art was very shocking with it's very simple and rational designs in it's furniture,

textile, architecture. It's designs are still called modern at present time. When visiting Bauhaus you

should always keep in mind that the designs were made in the years 1920-1930. Compare the tables,

chairs, spoons, architecture with the style you know like at your grandmothers house... You will

certainly feel that these were really shocking for some people. Bauhaus dissapeared in Dessau with the

due to the upcoming Nazi success. The school closed in 1933, many intellectuals fled to the United

States of America (Bauhaus is very known in Chicago, see the flats, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)

Departmental store

by Imbi about Galeries Lafayette

The store offers the latest fashions from cult designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin, yet the design of the building, with its daring glass roof, is equally fashionable. The only problem is that sheets of glass occasionally crash down onto the pavement below!
