Edi­tor’s Note

Where Berlin - - CONTENTS -

There are lots of rea­sons why June is my fa­vorite month in Ber­lin: the trees are greener than they'll ever be, the lakes are ready to wel­come thou­sands of Ber­lin­ers ev­ery week­end, and the straw­berry stands have ar­rived from the Bran­den­burg coun­try­side to sell us their de­li­cious red fruits.

But the best thing about June is the mul­ti­tude of out­door events all around town. This year, the month starts with the col­or­ful pa­rades of the Karneval der Kul­turen, which will be fill­ing the streets of Kreuzberg with tra­di­tional mu­sic and dance through­out the Pen­te­cost week­end (2–5 June).

Art lovers should not miss the 48 Hours Neukölln fes­ti­val (23–24 June), two days of open-air art ex­hi­bi­tions and in­stal­la­tions, in­clud­ing mar­kets and work­shops for all to en­joy. And the fol­low­ing week­end, on 30 June, we should all head to the pretty Bergmanstraße area for the Berg mann st raßenf est, a lively cel­e­bra­tion of sum­mer packed with mu­sic, theater, and street food.

See you there!
