Interview-Special: “My Berlin” | 4X-Travel Special | Open Air Cinemas | Students' Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

Have you always wanted to see Berlin through the eyes of a true Berliner? Jörg Schnabel, Ger­man teacher at did deutsch-institut Berlin and “self-proclaimed Berliner”, will show you his favorite places in this news­letter. In his interview, he tells us what he especially likes about Germany’s capital city. So we begin our new city series with “My Berlin”.

“I especially like the international atmosphere, the direct and authentic nature of the Berliners, the old, his­to­ric apartments, and most especially, the diverse cultural opportunities. In Berlin, everything is pos­si­ble, and I like that. Berlin is a very heterogeneous and tolerant city, similar to New York.” Follow this link to read the entire interview. What follows here are Jörg’s insider tips:

Tips for bars: Kuschlowski & Raumfahrer Insider Tip 1: Two favorite bars
“My first tip is the small, cozy bar called Kuschlowski (in the neighborhood Nord-Neukölln), that I got to know in the process of interviewing the owner. In winter, a small mini-fireplace heats the bar and the drinks are served with small Russian hors d’oeuvres. Not far from Kuschlowskis is the Raumfahrer. Here, the drink se­lec­tion is super, the guests are international and the owner is a French stunt man.”

Tip for a flea market: Flowmarkt Insider Tip 2: The “flow” market
“Every first and third Sunday of the month, there is a flea market directly on the Maybachufer (street along the water) called the “Flowmarkt”. The name is a play on words be­tween flea market and the English word “flow” (because of the river). Here, not only can you buy good CDs, records, books and clothing, you can also eat delicious snacks and lis­ten to live bands playing.” This flea market is cult-like!

Tip for a club: Lido Insider Tip 3: Concerts – The Lido
“The Lido is definitely my favorite live concert venue. The rooms are super, the acoustics perfect, and the Soul Inn Parties are not to be missed.” In the 60’s, there were films from the West shown here for East Berliners. The Lido was afterwards a Rock ‘n Roll hot spot and served as a theater rehearsal space. In 2006, it opened its doors anew as a club and belongs today to the hippest clubs in Berlin.

Tip for movie theatres: Delphi & International Insider Tip 4: Movie theaters
“My favorite movie theaters in Berlin are definitely the Del­phi and the In­ter­na­tio­nal, both with wonderful pro­jec­tion rooms and very stylish interior design. They are to be rec­om­men­ded not only during the Berlinale (film festival), and they have a long, historic tradition.” The Berlinale is one of the largest cul­tural events in Berlin and takes place every year in Feb­ru­ary. The next one is Feb­ru­ary 7-17, 2013.

Students' Corner
Why Frankfurt?

Thais from Brazil: “I am here in Frank­furt for eight months learn­ing Ger­man. In Bra­zil, Ger­man is an im­por­tant lang­uage be­cause there are many Ger­man firms there. I chose Frank­furt be­cause it is the fi­nan­cial cen­ter of Ger­ma­ny. I really like the parks here. After classes and studying in the ins­ti­tute, I en­joy going for a walk in the park or re­lax­ing. Even­ings, I es­pe­cial­ly like to go to a bar or res­tau­rant. They are so di­verse here – there are so many dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties. It is a to­tally new ex­per­i­ence for me. I learn more about German culture every day and am very hap­py to be here.” Read more
