Here Comes The Moon

Where Berlin - - WELCOME TO BERLIN -

The north­ern win­ter is upon us, with its short days and drop­ping tem­per­a­tures. But the hu­man species is quite an adapt­able one, and Ger­mans have found ways to make the most out of the win­ter dark­ness by adding a de­gree of co­zi­ness for ev­ery lux lost each day. This is pre­cisely why I like Novem­ber so much. I love the con­trast be­tween the city's warm in­te­ri­ors and the cold air out­side, be­tween the dark skies and the lights in­side the shops. I adore the warm foods and all of the sea­son's in­gre­di­ents, and the buzzing, pre-Christ­mas in­dus­tri­ous­ness I see around me. This fall, our of­fice has been busy se­lect­ing win­ter ac­tiv­i­ties and new sights for you to ex­plore, from de­li­cious ve­gan restau­rants (p. 10) to sober his­toric memo­ri­als (p. 36) and fab­u­lous pi­ano con­certs (p. 54). And while Annabelle Mal­lia tested cof­fee in a fu­tur­is­tic Mi­crosoft café (p. 52), Hilda Hoy went on a trip back to 1976 to visit a Wall-sur­rounded Kreuzberg (p. 14). And since Christ­mas is around the cor­ner, we've also se­lected a few prod­ucts to in­spire your gift shop­ping in Ber­lin (p. 16). En­joy your stay! SOLVEIG STEIN­HARDT ED­I­TOR, WHERE BER­LIN
