Ed­i­tor’s Note

Where Berlin - - CONTENTS -

One of the many facets of Berlin that no­body ex­pects is how much wa­ter there is in the city. 300kms of rivers and canals, which of­ten open up to form idyl­lic lakes, give Berlin a va­ca­tiony feel even in its most in­dus­trial parts. And what is more pleas­ant and re­lax­ing than drink­ing a beer while watch­ing boats (or swans) go by? Come evening, Ber­lin­ers flock to the banks of the Landwehr Canal in Kreuzberg to watch the sun slowly go down be­hind the build­ings, and if I could, I would join them ev­ery single night for the whole sum­mer. But June is also Berlin's wettest month of the year, so it may be a good idea to find in­door al­ter­na­tives. A great one is the Long Night of the Sciences, tak­ing place on 11 June at var­i­ous sci­en­tific lo­ca­tions (see p. 8). Or sim­ply turn to our En­ter­tain­ment sec­tion (p. 52) for a plethora of great events and ex­hi­bi­tions.
