Where Berlin - - NEWS - SOLVEIG STEINHARDT ED­I­TOR, WHERE BER­LIN

The streets are still cov­ered in used fire­works, we've opened all our hol­i­day presents, and our tum­mies haven't yet di­gested the fes­tive meals. To me, this means we are ready to kick off the year with new res­o­lu­tions and plans. To help us bet­ter fo­cus on our per­sonal prom­ises, our writer Hilda Hoy came up with a list of places and ac­tiv­i­ties to get our self-im­prove­ment process started. Check out pages 10 and 11 for tips on where to find healthy food, work­out ses­sions, and cul­tural trea­sures to feed our brains.

2017 prom­ises to be an ex­cit­ing year, with im­por­tant events such as the 500th an­niver­sary of the Lutheran Ref­or­ma­tion, which will be cel­e­brated through ex­hi­bi­tions at Deutsches His­torisches Mu­seum and Martin-Gropius-Bau, the 150th birth­day of Ber­lin artist Käthe Koll­witz, and the 100th an­niver­sary of the Russian Rev­o­lu­tion, which will be cov­ered ex­ten­sively at the Deutsches His­torisches Mu­seum in Oc­to­ber. And since Ber­lin is in con­stant growth and evo­lu­tion, this year will also see the first con­certs of a new mu­si­cal in­sti­tu­tion, the Baren­boim-Said Academy, which works to pro­mote peace in the Mid­dle East through its Arab-Is­raeli or­ches­tra, and the open­ing of the Bar­berini Mu­seum in Pots­dam, fea­tur­ing art from the GDR pe­riod. And af­ter years of ren­o­va­tions, the Staat­soper will fi­nally re­open at its his­toric lo­ca­tion on Un­ter den Lin­den, so stay tuned!
