A Month Of Music
We know: days are getting shorter. But on the “bright” side, nights are getting longer! And with Berlin being Europe’s nightlife destination, this can only be a good thing. To celebrate the long nights, we drew an overview of Berlin’s best nightlife destinations, from the worldfamous bastions of house and techno like the Berghain and Watergate to the poshest places out there, including Adagio and The Pearl, and all shades of night in between. But there's more: To find out everything there is to know about Berlin's club scene, Jenna Rose Robbins had a long conversation with one of the world's most famous DJs, Paul van Dyk, born in former East Berlin (p. 10). And if you need the perfect soundtrack for your Berlin visit, check out Jenna's playlist, which includes a selection of songs about the capital, from Paul LIncke's Berliner Luft to David Bowie's "Heroes" (p. 14). Don't forget that Christmas is around the corner, which means it's time to start jotting down gift ideas for our friends and family (p. 18). Berlin’s Christmas markets will be opening on 23 November this year, and are the perfect way to boost your Christmas spirit (p. 8). My personal favorite is the Markt der Kontinente, housed inside the Dahlem Museums, an ethnic bazaar focusing on a different continent every weekend. Check out its traditional crafts and combine gift shopping with a visit to the beautiful Asian artifacts housed in the museum.
