30 years ago the wall which divided the city and the people of Berlin was finally brought down, reunification was able to take place – physically and in the hearts and minds of the German people. A dark period of history was finally over and this week Berlin will celebrate!

The week of 4 – 10 November marks the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall: the capital city will be transformed into a large open-air exhibition and event location. In over two hundred events at seven original sites of the Peaceful Revolution, visitors are invited to learn, remember, debate and celebrate.

Hi there! I’m Juli, German roots but I grew up in New Zealand and have been living in Germany since 2004. I love sharing my passion for Berlin and all it has to offer with new ‚Berliners‘ and through my work as a freelance Relocation Consultant with IRC I have the opportunity to do so.

Summertime ends at 03:00am on Sunday, 27 October, 2019 – clocks go back by one hour.

As Oliver Twist said ‘Food glorious food’ and who doesn’t love to eat?! Autumn is a great time to discover some great new restaurants and eateries around Berlin or to learn some new skills and partake in a cooking class. The Berlin Food Week is primarily being hosted by the Bikini Mall in City West but there are events all around the city including showcases, cooking courses and pop-up stores.

Since its launch in 2014, the Berlin Food Week has established itself as an integral part of the food scene. The capital has long been known for its creative and cosmopolitan protagonists of a new food culture. Restaurateurs and innovative young chefs are shaping the culinary image of the city with their curiosity, joy of experimenting, and passion. This makes Berlin the ideal venue for the most exciting food festival in Germany. At various locations throughout the city, chefs, food entrepreneurs, and manufactories will present tasty and thrilling innovations from all over the world. The focus is on enjoyment, trying things out, and exchanging experiences. Visitors will learn all about creative food trends, fascinating nutrition topics, and sustainable consumption.
